On July 12, 2018, MarketWatch reported Danske Bank's head of compliance is resigning as the Company continues to confront a money-laundering scandal in Estonia.  The Company admitted its anti- money-laundering internal controls were insufficient.

On July 18, 2018, Danske Bank stated it will forgo profits made from transactions in Estonia that are subject to a money-laundering probe and that its 2018 net profit will be at the low end of its target range.

This news drove the price of Danske Bank shares down $1.43, or over 9%, to close at $13.81 on July 18, 2018.

"We're focused on investors' losses, Danske Bank's admitted insufficient controls, the compliance officer's resignation, and the extent to which the Company may have reported illegally earned profits in its financial reports," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
