Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Substantial Losses Investing In Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. To Contact The Firm
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. (“Orrstown” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ORRF).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that Orrstown negligently prepared Offering Documents for the Company’s March 2010 offering, and subsequently failed to disclose material information regarding the Company’s loan portfolio, underwriting practices and internal controls.
On October 26, 2011, Orrstown released financial results for the third quarter of 2011 indicating that the Company was performing far below expectations. The Company also reported that the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia had refused to authorize a requested declaration of quarterly dividends in an effort to prevent Orrstown from engaging in unsafe and unsound banking practices that would further deplete the Company’s dwindling capital base. Furthermore, Orrstown disclosed that it had $9.4 million in charge-offs for the third quarter of 2011, and that the Company faced “decreases in asset quality ratios, including elevated levels of nonaccrual loans, restructured loans and delinquencies.” Upon this news, shares of the Company’s common stock fell by nearly 30%, closing at $9.29 per share on October 27, 2011.
