NEW YORK, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Citizens Financial Group, Inc. ("Citizens" or the "Company") (NYSE: CFG) securities and certain of its officers, on behalf of a class who purchased Citizens securities between March 18, 2016 and March 29, 2017, (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/cfg.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements about its business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Citizen employees were falsifying information related to the Citizens Checkup program; (2) as a result, the Company's reported Citizens Checkup figures were exaggerated; and (3) consequently, Defendants' statements about Citizens' business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On March 29, 2017, the Wall Street Journal ("WSJ") reported that certain Citizens employees acknowledged that Company employees faked "financial checkup" meetings with customers. Citizens stated that the "Citizens Checkup" program resulted in 400,000 scheduled appointments in 2016, but the WSJ reported that former employees said they falsified information due to the Company's pressure to meet certain program expectations. Following this news Citizens stock price dropped.
