The plaintiff claims that the documents filed in connection with the IPO contained allegedly materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that LendingClub had an unsustainable business model dependent on its ability to issue loans with usurious rates, that LendingClub's loan investors would not be able to enforce the high rates because they were illegal, that without the usurious rates, the loans generated through LendingClub's marketplace would not be attractive to investors because they had a high credit risk, and that a substantial portion of LendingClub's loans were issued with rates in excess of those allowed by applicable state usury laws.
