LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) announces that it is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: EGBN) (“Eagle Bancorp” or “the Company”) and whether the Company’s officers and directors complied with their legal obligations to the Company and its shareholders.
On December 1, 2017, Aurelius Value published a report alleging that the Company engaged in a pattern of conduct similar to conduct that preceded previous bank failures, including “large insider loans that finance the CEO’s companies but haven’t been disclosed,” and “undisclosed financial entanglements between largest borrowers and the CEO.” Aurelius Value also accused insiders of treating Eagle Bancorp as their own “private piggy bank.”
GPM’s investigation focuses on whether the Company and its directors breached any fiduciary duties owed to shareholders.
