A shareholder filed a class action on behalf of all persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired Blue Ridge Bankshares, Inc.

According to the complaint, during the class period, defendants failed to disclose that: (1) Blue Ridge’s financial statements from March 10, 2023 to the present included certain errors; (2) as a result, Blue Ridge would need to restate its previously filed financial statements from March 10, 2023 to October 31, 2023; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all times.

Plaintiff alleges that on October 31, 2023, Blue Ridge filed with the SEC a current report on Form 8-K announcing it would need to restate its consolidated financial statements for its 2022 Annual Report, and the first two quarters of 2023. On this news, the price of Blue Ridge stock fell $1.06 per share, or 33.65%, to close at $2.09 on November 1, 2023.
