In connection with the disclosure, ETRADE stated that regulators “may initiate investigations into the company’s historical practices which could subject it to monetary penalties and cease-and-desist orders . . . prompt claims by customers of E*Trade Securities LLC . . . [and] materially and adversely affect the company’s broker-dealer businesses.”
