NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- The Rosen Law Firm, P.A. reminds all purchasers of Doral Financial Corp. (NYSE: DRL) securities between April 2, 2012 and May 1, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period") of the important July 14, 2014 lead plaintiff deadline.

The lawsuit is pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico.


According to the lawsuit, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements regarding Doral's financial condition, and failed to disclose adverse facts, including that (a) because of errors in its mathematical models and incorrect data, Doral had greatly underestimated the amount it must charge as provision for loan and lease losses against earnings, and (b) Doral kept on its books a $229 million tax receivable it was not actually owed.

On March 18, 2014, Doral announced that it had understated its provision for loan and lease losses because of material deficiencies in its internal controls over financial reporting. On this news, the price of Doral common stock decreased from $12.30 to $11.17 per share. On March 21, 2014, Doral announced an increased provision of ALLL, a net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013, and that it was forced to restate the financial statements for the third quarter of 2013. On this news, Doral common stock dropped from $11.55 to $10.76 per share. Then on May 1, 2014, the Company announced that $226 million in tax receivables from the Government of Puerto Rico from purported prior-year tax overpayments could no longer be counted as Tier 1 regulatory capital. The following day, Doral common stock fell 62%, from $9.82 to $3.73. Finally, on June 2, 2014, the Company announced that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has advised it to classify the tax receivable as a loss and write off the asset. On this news, Doral common stock declined from $3.56 to $2.97 per share.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 14, 2014. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.
