LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 11, 2018--The Schall Law Firm, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Banco Macro S.A. ("Banco Macro" or the "Company") (NYSE:  BMA ) for violations of §§10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The investigation focuses on whether the Company issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose information pertinent to investors. On December 7, 2017, Bloomberg reported that Banco Macro Chairman Jorge Horacio Brito played a part in the corruption scandal surrounding former Argentine Vice President Amado Boudou. According to the article, Boudou faced charges that he attempted to gain “illicit enrichment for allegedly using shell companies and secret middlemen to gain control of a company given contracts to print the national currency.” Chairman Brito was identified as one of the middlemen involved in the alleged scheme. Based on this information, the investigation will determine if Banco Macro’s filings with the SEC contained untrue or misleading information or otherwise damaged the investing public.
