About the Lawsuit
LendingClub and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On April 25, 2018, the Federal Trade Commission filed a complaint against the Company based on multiple charges of wrongdoing including falsely promising loans to consumers with no hidden fees and subsequently applying “hundreds or even thousands of dollars in hidden up-front fees from the loans”; misleading consumers as to the approval status of their loan applications; and improperly withdrawing funds from consumer accounts.
On this news, the price of LendingClub’s shares plummeted $0.49 per share, or over 15%, to close at $2.77 per share on April 25, 2018.
