Barclays (BCS) Unregistered Securities Case

S.D. New York
Court
1:23-cv-02583
Case number
26 Jun 2019
Class period Start
14 Mar 2022
Class period End
On March 28, 2022, Barclays (BCS) for the first time disclosed to investors that:
  • had issued approximately $15.2 billion in unregistered securities in excess of the maximum amount of securities registered in an August 2019 shelf registration statement,
  • BBPLC would commence a rescission offer for those unregistered securities,
  • Barclays expected the rescission losses to be c.£450m (approximately $589.5 million).
On this news, the price of Barclays ADRs declined over 10% on March 28, 2022, seriously damaging investors.

Further, on July 28, 2022, the Company announced that:
  • BBPLC had also over-issued unregistered securities in excess of the maximum amount of securities registered in a second BBPLC shelf registration statement
  • Barclays had provisioned “£1,592m (approximately $1.940 billion) related to the overissuance of structured notes and £165m (approximately $201 million) related to liabilities that could be incurred arising out of ongoing discussions in respect of a potential SEC resolution.”
All things considered, investors have reason to suspect that the Company has violated their fundamental rights by failing to provide or withhold material information.
