Recently the court denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss a shareholder class action lawsuit pending against Hanmi and certain of its officers. According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the specified $40.7 million troubled loan would necessitate further and future specific provisions for Hanmi – in the millions; (2) the specified $40.7 million troubled loan would necessitate Hanmi to appraise and take personal property securing a portion of the amount of the loan; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
