FBI Raids Florida Offices of Imperial Holdings
Imperial and several of its executive officers are under investigation by the FBI in connection with its life finance business, which buys life insurance policies for a fraction of their value and later collects the payout. On Tuesday, September 27, Federal agents raided the Florida offices pursuant to a search warrant issued by a magistrate judge in Miami Federal Court.
IFT Shares Plummeted After Raid
In February 2011, the Company went public with a $179.2 million initial public offering underwritten by FBR Capital Markets by selling over 16.66 million shares to the public at $10.75 per share. Prior to Imperial’s IPO, the Company lost money every year from 2008 through 2010. As a result of the raid, the trading of the Company’s stock was suspended on Tuesday afternoon at $6.32 per share. The following day, the value of the IFT shares dropped drastically by 60%, closing at $2.19.
