Credit Suisse Group AG : American Depositary Receipts Securities Litigation
On or around 10/29/2018 (Ongoing date of last review)
Filing Date: December 22, 2017
According to the law firm press release, Credit Suisse is a multinational financial services holding company with one of its four primary divisions focused on investment banking. The Company is based in Switzerland with its principal U.S. offices in New York, New York.
The Complaint asserts claims for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and risk controls.
Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Credit Suisse's risk protocols and control systems were routinely disregarded (3) the Company was accumulating billions of dollars of risky, highly illiquid securities in violation of those risk protocols; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about Credit Suisse's business, operations, and risk controls were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On March 19, 2018, the Court issued an Order appointing Co-Lead Plaintiffs and Counsel. Co-Lead Plaintiffs filed an amended Complaint on April 18.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
