During the class period, the Company and management repeatedly assured investors that they were focused on a higher asset quality base and disciplined underwriting.
However, after Synchrony’s most important retail partner (Walmart) announced it selected Capital One for its store-brand cards and later sued Synchrony alleging that Synchrony intentionally underwrote the Walmart/Synchrony credit card program in a way that exposes the program to significant unique credit risk harming Walmart, the price of Synchrony shares fell $3.01, or about 10%, to close at $26.43 on November 2, 2018.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses, Defendants’ apparently undisclosed loosening of underwriting standards, and the extent to which management’s earlier statements about asset quality and underwriting may have been misleading,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
