The Gross Law Firm notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California on behalf of shareholders of Silvergate Capital Corporation who purchased shares between November 9, 2021 and January 5, 2023.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company’s platform lacked sufficient controls and procedures to detect instances of money laundering; (2) Silvergate’s customers had engaged in money laundering in amounts exceeding $425 million; (3) as a result of the foregoing, the Company was reasonably likely to receive regulatory scrutiny and face damages, including penalties and reputational harm; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendant’s positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
