According to the complaint, defendants made false statements and/or concealed that TD Bank failed to disclose material information to the market that it had deficient internal controls that posed a significant risk to the closing of the First Horizon transaction. Specifically, TD Bank suffered from grossly ineffective internal controls regarding anti-money laundering practices and failed to appropriately report unusual transactions or suspicious activity to U.S. regulators. According to a report published by The Wall Street Journal, in "recent years," TD Bank only "flagged 28 customer transactions" as suspicious. As a result, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the U.S. Federal Reserve refused to approve the transaction within the necessary time frames.
On March 1, 2023, First Horizon revealed that TD Bank had informed First Horizon that it did not expect "the necessary regulatory approvals will be received in time to complete the [business combination] by May 27, 2023."
On this news, the price of First Horizon shares fell 10.6% to close at $22.14 per share on March 1, 2023.
Thereafter, on May 4, 2023, First Horizon and TD Bank issued a joint press release titled "TD Bank and First Horizon Mutually Agree to Terminate Merger Agreement," explaining that "TD informed First Horizon that TD does not have a timetable for regulatory approvals to be obtained for reasons unrelated to First Horizon." During a First Horizon investor call held that day, First Horizon further revealed that TD Bank "could not provide assurance of regulatory approval in 2023 or 2024."
On this news, First Horizon's share price fell another 33%, to close at $10.06 per share on May 4, 2023.
