On February 2, 2018, citing "recent and widespread consumer abuses and other compliance breakdowns by Wells Fargo," the U.S. Federal Reserve announced "that it would restrict the growth of the firm until it sufficiently improves its governance and controls." The Federal Reserve also announced that "Wells Fargo will replace three current board members by April and a fourth board member by the end of the year."  Following this announcement, Wells Fargo's share price fell roughly 6% in after-hours trading on February 2, 2018, and has fallen sharply during intraday trading on February 5, 2018.
