The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Danske Bank American Depositary Receipts ("ADRs") between January 9, 2014 and October 23, 2018 (the "Class Period"). The case, Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 773 Pension Fund v. Danske Bank A/S et al., No. 19-cv-00235 was filed on January 9, 2019, and has been assigned to Judge Valerie E. Caproni.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) Danske Bank’s Estonian branch was facilitating money laundering through at least March 2016; (2) that a whistleblower had reported the Estonian money laundering to the Company in 2013; (3) that Denmark’s Financial Supervisory Authority (the "DFSA") had been investigating the Estonian money laundering since 2014; (4) that Danske Bank had concealed the results of its own internal investigation from the DFSA, further exposing it to regulatory action and fines; and (5) that Danske Bank had been overstating its historical profits by including the profits derived from its illicit Estonian operations.
As the market learned the full extent of the Company’s prior reliance on illicit profits and its resulting exposure to regulatory action between September 2017 and October 23, 2018, the market price of Danske Bank ADRs fell to as low as $9.50 each, erasing more than $2.54 billion in market capitalization.
