About the Lawsuit
Bank OZK and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. Specifically, that the Company lacked sufficient credit risk assessment controls creating an increased risk of charge-offs, and as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s statements were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On October 18, 2018, the Company disclosed that it had “incurred combined charge-offs of $45.5 million on two Real Estate Specialties Group credits” that it previously had classified as substandard. On this news, the price of Bank OZK’s shares plummeted.
The case is Colbert v. Bank OZK, et al., 18-cv-00793.
