The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Walter made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: the Company’s subsidiary Ditech had a material weakness in its internal control over operational processes; that the Company lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; and that as a result of the above, Walter’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On March 14, 2017, Walter filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission, reporting the Company's financial and operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2016. Walter disclosed that “[a]s of December 31, 2016, we identified a material weakness in internal controls over operational processes within the transaction level processing of Ditech Financial default servicing activities.” When this news was announced, shares of Walter dropped in value, causing investors harm.
