BOSTON, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a securities litigation firm representing investors nationwide, is investigating whether Lending Club (NYSE: LC) and certain of its officers and directors have violated federal securities laws following the news today that the company's Chief Executive Officer, Renaud Laplanche, has abruptly resigned.
Lending Club shares were down over 40% this week after it was reported that a board review found that the company sold an investor $22 million in subprime, low credit score loans, despite the fact that these loans violated the express instructions of the investor. It was further reported that three other senior executives have been terminated and that Lending Club was forced to repurchase these subprime loans at par.
