The Firm announces an investigation on behalf of Banc of California, Inc. (“Banc of California”) or the “Company”) (NYSE: BANC) concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws.

On October 18, 2016, an article was published on Seeking Alpha alleging that Banc of California had concealed ties to Jason Galanis—a man the article claims has a “long history of secretly gaining control of banks and public companies via front men, looting assets, and leaving unsuspecting investors and taxpayers with hundreds of millions in losses.” Specifically, the article alleged: (1) that Galanis controlled the Company’s founding shareholder; (2) that an off-balance sheet lender controlled by the Company’s senior-most officers financed Galanis; and (3) that the Company’s lead independent director had strong ties to Galanis.

On this news, shares of Banc of California fell over 29% per share on October 18, 2016, thereby injuring investors.
