Bernstein Liebhard LLP is investigating whether BofI Holding, Inc. (“BofI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BOFI) violated the federal securities laws. The investigation concerns whether BofI and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
BofI is the holding company for BofI Federal Bank, a nationwide bank that provides financing for single and multifamily residential properties, small-to-medium size businesses, and selected specialty finance receivables.
On October 13, 2015, a former internal auditor of BofI filed a federal lawsuit, alleging that he was fired after revealing wrongdoing at the bank to management and federal regulators. Specifically, BofI stands accused of intentionally failing to provide timely information to regulators and otherwise purposefully disregarding its internal controls. On this news, BofI stock fell as much as $42.87, or 30.19%, to close at $99.13 on October 14, 2015.
