NEW YORK, July 8, 2019 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Equity Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: EQBK) securities between May 11, 2018 and April 22, 2019 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until July 12, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) the company lacked adequate internal controls to assess credit risk; (2) as a result, certain of the company’s loans posed an increased risk of loss; (3) as a result, the company was reasonably likely to incur significant losses for certain substandard loans; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendant’s positive statements about the company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
