STEVENSON, Md., June 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Regional Management Corp. ("Regional Management" or the "Company") (NYSE:RM) common stock pursuant to the Company's public stock offerings on September 20, 2013 at $27.50 per share and on December 5, 2013 at $31 per share (collectively, the "Offerings"), and informs investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation that they have until July 29, 2014 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

No class has yet been certified in the above action. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff no later than July 29, 2014 and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement and how much of a settlement to accept for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Company units during the Class Period.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Act of 1933 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose in the Registration Statements and Prospectuses issued in connection with the Offerings that the Company failed to adequately reserve for loan losses in light of the Company's deteriorating underwriting standards that were leading to a higher percentage of delinquencies and by virtue of those documents misstating the Company's fourth quarter and fiscal 2012 financials. According to the complaint, as this information came to light, the value of Regional Management shares declined significantly.
