Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces Investigation Of Suffolk Bancorp

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a national law firm concentrating on investor rights, is investigating potential wrongdoing at Suffolk Bancorp (“Suffolk” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: SUBK). Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP seeks to determine whether certain officers and directors at Suffolk violated federal securities laws in connection with statements made to the Company’s shareholders.

The investigation focuses on whether certain individuals violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) Suffolk’s loss reserves were materially understated, resulting in artificially inflated financial results for the Company; (2) the Company held impaired assets, further inflating Suffolk’s financial results; and (3) the Company lacked robust internal and disclosure controls.

On August 10, 2011, Suffolk issued a press release announcing that it would be unable to file its quarterly results with the SEC on Form 10-Q and that the Company’s previously issued financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010, the quarter ended December 31, 2010 and the quarter ended September 30, 2010 “should no longer be relied upon due to an understatement of its allowance for loan losses in such periods.” As a result of these shocking disclosures, the price of Suffolk stock declined more than 11.3%, closing at $9.16 per share on August 10, 2011.
