The Schall Law Firm, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Hanmi Financial Corporation (“Hanmi” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: HAFC ) for violations of the securities laws.

The investigation focuses on whether the Company issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose information pertinent to investors. Hanmi issued a press release on January 28, 2020, announcing the Company’s financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019. The Company reported net income of $3.1 million, including “a $6.9 million specific provision for loan and lease losses related to [a] previously identified $39.7 million troubled loan relationship.” President and CEO Bonnie Lee said, “With the loans comprising this relationship maturing on December 31, 2019, [Hanmi] received current appraisals on the personal property securing the relationship and ha[s] provided for a specific allowance at the lower range of the appraised values.” Based on this news, shares of Hanmi fell by more than 9.4% the next day.
