The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Metro Bank securities between March 6, 2018 and May 1, 2019 (the "Class Period"). The case, Amann v. Metro Bank PLC et al., No. 19-cv-04739 was filed on May 30, 2019.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that : (1) Metro Bank misclassified the risk terms of many of its loans; (2) accordingly, Metro Bank failed to maintain sufficient capital; (3) this conduct would lead to investigations by the Prudential Regulation Authority and Financial Conduct Authority; (4) this conduct would also lead to the reduction of deposits at Metro Bank from larger commercial and partnership clients; and (5) as a result, defendants’ public statements were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times.
On May 1, 2019, Metro Bank announced that it lost some large commercial and partnership customers following a disclosure earlier in the year of an accounting error in the Company’s risk-weighted assets, as well as adjustments made for the Company’s full year 2018 results.
On this news, Metro Bank's share price fell from $10.45 per share on May 1, 2019 to a closing price of $8.50 on May 3, 2019: a $1.95 or a 18.66% drop.
