DFS Investigation Notification: Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP is Investigating Securities Fraud Claims on Behalf of Discover Financial Services (DFS) Investors



Radnor, Pennsylvania--(Newsfile Corp. - August 17, 2023) - The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP (www.ktmc.com) is currently investigating potential violations of the federal securities laws on behalf of investors of Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS) ("Discover Financial").

On July 19, 2023, Discover Financial disclosed in a statement that the company had misclassified some of its credit cards. Specifically, Discover Financial revealed that it misclassified certain credit card accounts into its highest pricing tier, starting in 2007, meaning merchants were charged more than they should have been to accept the cards for payment. Discover Financial indicated the company is discussing the matter with regulators and warned it could face future regulatory actions. Discover Financial also disclosed that it received a proposed consent order from the FDIC for a consumer compliance issue which is different than the misclassification matter. Following this news, the company's stock price declined over 14%, to close at $102.83 on July 20, 2023.

Then, on August 14, 2023, Discover Financial disclosed that Roger Hochschild was stepping down as President and CEO as well as giving up his position as a member of the company's board of directors. Following this news, Discover Financial's stock price declined over 9%, to close at $92.96 on August 15, 2023.
