Scott+Scott is investigating whether FG New America’s board of directors or executive officers breached their duties of disclosure, duties of candor, and requirements to act in good faith, and whether FG New America’s shareholders suffered damages as a result.
On July 16, 2021, FG New America shareholders of record as of June 21, 2021, approved a merger between FG New America and OppFi.
In March 2022, the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation sued OppFi for regulatory violations and exceeding interest rate caps, and both the CEO and the CFO resigned within a few days thereof. On December 9, 2022, OppFi announced that its Audit Committee had determined that all financial statements for 2021 “should no longer be relied upon due to a misapplication of accounting guidance in connection with the Company’s calculations of diluted earnings per share for such periods.”
Overall, the stock price has declined by over 75% since the merger, with shares currently trading at $2.19/share.
