Robbins Umeda LLP's investigation focuses on whether the directors and officers of Orrstown harmed the company and investors by issuing improper statements about the condition and future business prospects of the company. In particular, it is alleged that Orrstown misled the investing public and failed to disclose known facts about the nature of the company's credit practices and underwriting standards, the quality of its loan portfolio, and the intended use of proceeds from its March 2010 public offering.
On October 26, 2011, Orrstown released financial results for the third quarter of 2011 that showed the company was performing well below expectations. The company also reported that the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, one of the bank's primary regulators, refused to authorize Orrstown's requested declaration of quarterly dividends in an effort to prevent the company from engaging in unsafe and unsound banking practices that would further deplete its capital base. In addition, Orrstown disclosed that it had $9.4 million of charge-offs in the third quarter of 2011 and that the company faced "decreases in asset quality ratios, including elevated levels of nonaccrual loans, restructured loans and delinquencies." Upon news of the financial results, shares of the company's common stock lost nearly 30% of their value, closing on October 27, 2011, at just $9.29 per share.
