According to the complaint, on March 28, 2022, Barclays issued a press release announcing that Barclays Bank PLC (“BBPLC”) had sold $15.2 billion of unregistered securities in excess of the maximum $20.8 billion of securities registered under the August 2019 Shelf Registration Statement and that BBPLC would issue a rescission offer.

Also on March 28, 2022, Reuters published an article entitled, "Barclays faces $590 million hit, scrutiny over sales slip-up." The article states that, "British bank Barclays faces an estimated 450 million pound ($592 million) loss and regulatory scrutiny for exceeding a U.S. limit on sales of structured products, some of which have surged in popularity since Russia's invasion of Ukraine." Additionally, the article states that "Barclays [. . .] also said on Monday that it will have to delay a planned 1 billion pound share buyback as of the loss, which it will have to incur as a result of buying back the securities in question at their original purchase price."  

Following the news, the price of Barclays ADRs fell $0.96 per share, or 10.6%, to close at $8.09 per share on March 28, 2022.
