Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is investigating whether certain directors and officers FG New America Acquisition Corp. (“FG New America”) (NYSE: FGNA), now known as OppFi Inc. (“OppFi”) (NYSE: OPFI), breached their fiduciary duties to FG New America’s shareholders.
The investigation concerns whether FG New America’s board of directors or executive officers breached their duties of disclosure, duties of candor, and requirements to act in good faith, and whether FG New America’s shareholders suffered damages as a result.
On July 16, 2021, FG New America shareholders of record as of June 21, 2021 approved a merger between FG New America and OppFi.
In March 2022, the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation sued OppFi for regulatory violations and exceeding interest rate caps, and both the CEO and the CFO resigned within a few days thereof.
On December 9, 2022, OppFi announced that its Audit Committee determined that all financial statements for 2021 “should no longer be relied upon due to a misapplication of accounting guidance in connection with the Company’s calculations of diluted earnings per share for such periods.”
OppFi’s stock price has declined significantly since the merger.
