On November 6, 2018, Reuters reported that Danske Bank’s largest shareholder, the Maersk family, ousted the Company’s Chairman after a money laundering scandal previously forced out its CEO.
The U.S. Department of Justice, Treasury Department, and the SEC, reportedly want to know why Danske’s tiny Estonian branch processed billions of dollars during 2007 through 2015 from foreign countries, mainly Russia.
The scandal involves about $230 billion in transactions, many of which Danske Bank said it regards as suspicious. The reported criminal investigations in the United States, Denmark and Estonia could lead to sizeable fines against the Company.
In response, the prices of Danske ADRs and U.S. bond issuances have steeply fallen this year.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses, Danske’s admitted insufficient controls, senior executives’ departures, senior management’s reported knowledge, and the extent to which the Company may have reported illegally earned profits in several years’ of financial reports,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
