Black Knight sells software and services for the residential mortgage servicing industry. Scott+Scott is investigating whether members of Black Knight’s board of directors made, or allowed Black Knight to make, false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material information to the investing public.
On November 6, 2019, PennyMac Financial Services, Inc. (“PennyMac”), a customer of Black Knight’s mortgage software products since 2008, announced that it had filed a lawsuit against Black Knight for unfair and deceptive trade practices. The lawsuit alleges that Black Knight used its market dominance in mortgage loan servicing systems to entrap licensees and stifle competition. The complaint also reveals that PennyMac gave notice that it was terminating its contract with Black Knight in May 2019. PennyMac’s press release specified that “[t]he lawsuit alleges that Black Knight violated the federal Sherman Act, the California Cartwright Act and California’s Unfair Competition Law and engaged in unfair competition under common law” and that “PennyMac seeks, among other relief, to preliminarily and permanently enjoin Black Knight’s wrongful practices, and seeks the recovery of actual and statutory damages.” On this news, Black Knight’s stock price fell $4.69, or over 7.5%, to close at $57.65 on November 6, 2019.
