INVESTOR ALERT: Kirby McInerney LLP Continues Investigation of Shareholder Claims Against Metro Bank PLC

May 21, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 21, 2019--

The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against Metro Bank PLC (“Metro Bank” or the “Company”) (OTC: MBNKF ). This investigation concerns whether Metro Bank has violated federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.

On May 1, 2019, Metro Bank announced that it had lost a “small number of large commercial and partnership customers” following a disclosure earlier in the year of an accounting error in the Company’s risk-weighted assets. The loss of these customers led to a drop in profits for the first quarter of 2019. On this news, the Company’s share price fell $1.69 per share, approximately 16.2%, to close at $8.76 on May 2, 2019.
