In the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Franklin Bank and certain
of its officers and directors violated federal securities laws by
issuing materially false and misleading statements regarding the
Company’s business and financial results. Specifically, the plaintiff
contends that, during the Class Period, the defendants concealed that:
(i) Franklin Bank’s assets contained tens of millions of dollars worth
of impaired and risky securities; (ii) defendants failed to properly
account for Franklin Bank’s mortgage-related assets; (iii) defendants
had not properly accounted for single family loans serviced by third
parties that became delinquent; and (iv) Franklin Bank’s call reports
filed with the FDIC beginning with the September 2007 quarter, at the
latest, and its Form 10-Q for the September 2007 quarter were in error
due to the Company’s failure to properly account for losses on mortgage
loans and residential real estate owned properties.
