our relationships come first … with our customers, our employees, our shareholders and our community. With that in mind, we want to provide accurate information in response to false and misleading statements contained in a piece about Eagle Bancorp and EagleBank
that was floated on the internet this past Friday from a notorious short seller with unsavory intentions. We reject all allegations and have put out a press release
detailing all the reasons why, but here is a short recap: EagleBank
and its holding company were founded on, and remain strongly committed to, the highest professional and ethical standards; EagleBank
continues to work with the same integrity it was built on; EagleBank
is as strong today as it was a week ago; EagleBank
’s credit quality remains pristine; EagleBank
’s focus will continue to be on fueling the success of our customers, our employees, our shareholders and our community.
