According to the complaint, throughout the Class Period, the Company issued materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) that Company employees were falsifying information related to the Citizens Checkup program; (2) that, as a result, the Company’s reported Citizens Checkup figures were inflated; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Citizens’ business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On March 29, 2017, the Wall Street Journal (“WSJ”) reported that certain Citizens employees admitted that employees faked “financial checkup” meetings with customers. According to the WSJ, former employees said they falsified information because of pressure to meet expectations related to the program.
