The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who (a): purchased AT&T common stock pursuant or traceable to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) S-4 registration statement and prospectus issued in connection with AT&T’s June 2018 acquisition of and merger with Time Warner; or (b): purchased or otherwise acquired securities between October 22, 2016 and October 24, 2018
(the “Class Period”). The case, Gross v. AT&T Inc. et al., No. 19-cv-02892 was filed on April 1, 2019.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) AT&T’s Registration Statement touted false and misleading financial results, trends, and metrics and omitted material facts rendering those financial results, trends, and metrics materially misleading; (2) The Registration Statement also purported to warn of numerous risks that “if” occurring “may” or “could” adversely affect the Company while failing to disclose that these “risks” had already materialized at the time of the Acquisition; and (3) AT&T had substantially increased prices, while at the same time discontinuing promotional discounts for its DirecTV Now service.
On October 24, 2018, Defendants announced AT&T’s 3Q2018 results (the first full quarter post-Acquisition) and revealed a dramatic reversal of its reported total subscriber “Net Additions” trends. The results showed that traditional DirectTV satellite subscriber losses grew dramaticall while DirectTV Now subscribers plummeted significantly.
On this news, the Company's stock price fell, over two trading days, from $33.02 per share on October 23, 2018 to $29.09 per share on October 26, 2018--a $3.93 or 11.10% drop.
