LendingClub Deadline: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reminds Investors of Important Deadline in Securities Class Action Lawsuit Against LendingClub Corporation – LC

NEW YORK, June 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bernstein Liebhard LLP reminds investors of the important July 2, 2018 lead plaintiff deadline in the class action lawsuit against LendingClub Corporation (“LendingClub” or the “Company”) (NYSE: LC). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages on behalf of those who purchased the securities of LendingClub between February 28, 2015 and April 25, 2018, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”).

According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) LendingClub falsely promised consumers they would receive a loan with “no hidden fees”; (2) LendingClub’s privacy policy did not comply with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act; (3) consequently, the foregoing conduct would subject LendingClub’s business practices to heightened regulatory scrutiny by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”); and (4) as a result, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On April 25, 2018, the FTC “charged the LendingClub Corporation with falsely promising consumers they would receive a loan with ‘no hidden fees,’ when, in actuality, the company deducted hundreds or even thousands of dollars in hidden up-front fees from the loans.” The FTC’s complaint against LendingClub states that the Company is “persisting in this conduct despite warnings from its own compliance department that [it’s] concealment of the up-front fee is ‘likely to mislead the consumer.’” Additionally, the FTC’s complaint states that LendingClub’s “internal compliance reviews repeatedly cite the concealment of the fee as a significant problem for consumers.”

On this news, LendingClub’s stock fell $0.49 per share, or over 15%, from its previous closing price to close at $2.77 per share on April 25, 2018, damaging investors.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 2, 2018. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
