Claim deadline
  • loanDepot were accused of misleading about its IPO.
  • When they later reported disappointing Q2 2021 results, $LDI fell by 42% due to hidden risks.
  • loanDepot agreed to pay $3.5M to investors to resolve the claims due to this case.
loanDepot sold 3.85M shares at $14 each in its IPO, raking in about $54M. Notably, nearly 40% of these shares were sold by CEO Anthony Hsieh and investor Parthenon Capital.

Supposedly, loanDepot's Registration Statement hid a big drop in refinance and profit margins.

When loanDepot's Q2 2021 results was published on August 3, 2021, $LDI dropped over 42% by August 17, 2021, exposing undisclosed risks.

loanDepot has now decided to resolve all the allegations and pay a $3.5M settlement.
