About the LawsuitDoral and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. On May 1, 2014, Doral disclosed that the Puerto Rican government was disputing whether a purported tax receivable due Doral, which accounted for $289 million of Doral's Tier 1 capital for fiscal 2013, was indeed payable, and that the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation had advised Doral that it could not include the tax receivable in its Tier 1 capital ratio, rendering Doral significantly undercapitalized, and had ordered Doral to revise its capital plan, which could force it to sell assets. On this news, the price of Doral's shares declined by over 60%.
