Fieldfisher JAUSAS and the Banco Popular case

On June 6, 2017, Banco Popular resolved to redeem its shares and numerous financial instruments worth 2.030 billion euros, and sold the entity for one euro to Banco Santander, causing enormous damage to hundreds of thousands of investors, whether individuals, retail companies, or professional investors.

Since then, several investigations and proceedings have been initiated in various jurisdictions: CNMV (Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores [National Stock Exchange]), Spanish Parliament, Spanish High Court, General Court of the European Union, etc. which have given rise to numerous pieces of evidence that prove that the economic information in the prospectus for the capital increase of Banco Popular of 27 May 2016 is false and that the bank's accounts in several previous years may not reflect the true and fair view of the company.

Misrepresentation of financial information has legal consequences both for those who acquired financial instruments in the belief that such information was true, and for those who, having financial instruments, did not sell them in the confidence that such information deserved.

In addition, the resolution process led to the sale of Banco Popular to Banco Santander for one euro with a total deduction of 2.03 billion euros, when Banco Popular had already made most of the adjustments it needed and had a much higher value.

There are now numerous Provincial Court rulings condemning the investors who acquired shares in the capital increase to pay compensation.

FIELDFISHER JAUSAS represents a numerous group of clients including professionals, companies of different sizes, and individuals. FIELDFISHER JAUSAS is appearing in the Spanish High Court, has filed lawsuits with the General Court of the European Union, as well as several lawsuits of prospectus misrepresentations and unjust enrichment with Spanish courts.

FIELDFISHER JAUSAS and the litigation fund RAMCO LITIGATION FUNDING have reached an agreement to finance the legal claims of those investors holding Banco Popular instruments who were affected by the resolution, provided that they show an interest in financing customers representing a minimum of 150 million euros, and a maximum of 250 million euros.
