Seeking Alpha published an article alleging that Banc of California had hidden numerous connections between it and Jason Galanis, who has been convicted of criminal securities fraud. In particular, the Complaint alleges that: Banc of California CEO Jason Sugarman was the founder, CEO, and indirect owner of a company controlled by Galanis; and that separately, Galanis controlled Banc of California’s founding shareholder.

The Complaint further alleges that Banc of California was using an off-balance sheet entity to issue loans to insiders.

Then, on November 10, 2016, Banc of California revealed it would be stalling the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2016 so that its Special Committee could complete a review into the aforementioned improper relationships and related party transactions.

On January 23, 2017, Banc of California revealed that the Securities and Exchange Commission is pursuing a formal order of investigation directed at these same issues.

When this information was released to the public, the value of Banc stock fell sharply, causing investors harm.
