Saxena White P.A. Files Securities Fraud Class Action against Ocwen Financial Corporation

Saxena White P.A. has filed a securities fraud class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Ocwen Financial Corporation on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of the Company during the period from May 2, 2013 through August 11, 2014. The complaint brings forth claims for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose a myriad of material information regarding the company's improper business and operational practices including, among other things, the fact that Ocwen's mortgage servicing practices violated applicable regulations and laws; that the company's executives allowed related company Altisource Portfolio Solutions, S.A. - a company of which Defendant William C. Erbey, Ocwen's Chairman of the Board, owns approximately 27% of its shares outstanding -- to impose wholly unreasonable rates for services provided to Ocwen; and that Defendant William C. Erbey, along with other directors and officers, were directly involved in approving Ocwen's conflicted transactions with Altisource. In addition, the Company's financial results were artificially inflated during the Class Period, resulting in a restatement of the Company's financial results. Accordingly, Defendants issued materially false and misleading statements and omitted material information from Ocwen's public disclosures, which failed to disclose, among other things, that: Altisource was charging exorbitant fees to Ocwen to enable Defendants to funnel as much as $65 million in questionable fees; despite public representations to the contrary, Defendant Erbey was personally involved in approving conflicted transactions with Altisource and other related entities which he controlled; the company failed to comply with applicable laws and regulations, including lending regulations designed to protect homeowners; the company's financial statements during the Class Period were artificially inflated and did not provide a fair presentation of the company's finances and operations; the company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and as a result of the above, the company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
