THE COMPANY: NYCB is a commercial real estate lender in Hicksville, NY, with $114 billion in assets. It’s among the 30 largest U.S. banks.

THE ALLEGED WRONGDOING: New York Community Bancorp is facing significant challenges, including the departure of its CEO, Thomas Cangemi, internal control issues, and a $2.7 billion loss in the fourth quarter 2023.

After CEO Thomas Cangemi’s unexpected resignation, Alessandro DiNello, the bank’s Executive Chairman, was named as his successor. DiNello previously served as CEO of Flagstar Bank. Since February 6, he has been overseeing NYCB’s operations, due to changes in the company’s bylaws.

NYCB recently announced that they experienced a significant increase in losses during Q4 2023. This was caused by a non-cash impairment charge of $2.4 billion related to transactions dating back at least 17 years. The bank also identified material weaknesses in its internal controls concerning internal loan review, which caused a delay in the filing of its annual report.

DiNello, the bank’s new CEO, has assured investors that the bank is committed to stability, claiming NYCB has hired new executives to key positions, including a Chief Risk Officer and Chief Account Executive, to address the challenges faced by the bank.

THE REVELATION: As a result of these events, New York Community Bancorp witnessed its stock plummet by 28% at the market open on March 1, reaching its lowest price since 1996.
