Santander Subpoenaed by the United States Department of Justice in Relation to Company's Underwriting and Securitization of Nonprime Auto Loans
According to the complaint, on August 7, 2014, Santander disclosed in a regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that the company received a civil subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice pursuant to the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act. In the filing, the company disclosed, among other things, that the subpoena sought the production of documents related to the underwriting and securitization of nonprime auto loans since 2007. Following this disclosure, Santander shares fell to $17.95 per share, representing a 25% decline in value from the company's January 24, 2014 price of $24.00.
In addition, the complaint alleges that the Registration Statement for the IPO was inaccurate and misleading, causing class members to sustain damages.
