Class Period: November 14, 2017 - December 8, 2019
Date Filed: Feb 26, 2020
Case Number: 2:20cv10490
Jurisdiction: Michigan Eastern District
Days Left to Seek Plaintiff:
On December 9, 2019, the Company disclosed that it “voluntarily and temporarily suspended its Advantage Loan program in connection with an ongoing internal review of the program’s documentation.” On that same day, shares of Sterling common stock fell $2.16 per share to close at $7.29 per share, a decline of nearly 23%. The complaint filed in this class action alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made untrue statements of material fact and omitted other facts necessary to make the statements not misleading and failed to disclose material facts concerning, inter alia, the Company’s loan underwriting, risk management and internal controls, including repeatedly touting its strict underwriting, asset quality and the Advantage Loan Program.
