Attention investors who purchased shares of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. between March 2, 2015 and July 17, 2019:
Rigrodsky & Long is investigating claims brought in a securities fraud class action complaint against Eagle Bancorp, Inc. ("Eagle Bancorp") concerning whether Eagle Bancorp and certain of the Company's directors and/or officers made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose materially adverse facts during the period March 2, 2015 and July 17, 2019, inclusive (the "Class Period"), concerning Eagle Bancorp's business, operations and prospects. These misrepresentations and omissions artificially inflated the price of Eagle Bancorp's stock throughout the Class Period.
Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (“Eagle Bancorp” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ CM: EGBN) between March 2, 2015 and July 17, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).
If you purchased shares of Eagle Bancorp during the Class Period, or purchased shares prior to the Class Period and still hold Eagle Bancorp, and wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact Seth D. Rigrodsky or Timothy J. MacFall at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 300 Delaware Avenue, Suite 1220, Wilmington, DE 19801, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at http://rigrodskylong.com/contact-us/.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants concealed from the investing public that: (i) Eagle Bancorp’s internal controls and procedures and compliance policies were inadequate; (ii) the foregoing shortcoming created a foreseeable risk of heightened regulatory scrutiny and the need for the Company undertake its own internal investigations; and (iii) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
According to the Complaint, on July 17, 2019, Eagle Bancorp disclosed rising legal costs stemming from ongoing internal and government investigations of “the Company’s identification, classification and disclosure of related party transactions; the retirement of certain former officers and directors; and the relationship of the Company and certain of its former officers and directors with a local public official.”
On this news, shares of Eagle Bancorp declined over 26%, closing at $39.10 per share on July 18, 2019, on heavy trading volume.
