NEW YORK, March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of Banc of California, Inc. securities (BANC) from August 7, 2015 through January 20, 2017, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period").

According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants issued materially false and misleading statements to investors and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Banc of California had extensive ties to an alleged "fraudster" named Jason Galanis ("Galanis"); (2) Banc of California's ties to Galanis created substantial regulatory risk, given Galanis' history; (3) the revelation of Galanis' ties to Banc of California could cause a substantial decline in the market price of the Banc of California's securities; (4) Banc of California allegedly misled investors concerning its connections to Galanis; and (5) as a result, defendants' positive statements about Banc of California's business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 24, 2017.
