Bank OZK Accused of Failing to Manage Its Credit Risk

According to the complaint, Bank OZK informed investors that it attempted to minimize its credit risk through prudent loan and lease underwriting procedures. However, because Bank OZK did not have adequate internal controls to assess credit risk, certain of its loans posed an increased risk of loss and certain substandard loans were likely to lead to charge-offs. On October 18, 2018, Bank OZK reported that it had incurred charge-offs of $45.5 million on two Real Estate Specialties Group credits, which had previously been classified as substandard. On this news, Bank OZK’s stock price dropped more than 26% to close at $25.52 per share on October 19, 2018, and have yet to recover their value.
