The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia on behalf of all those who purchased GTT securities between February 26, 2018 and July 1, 2019 (the “Class Period”). The case, Plymouth County Retirement System v. GTT Communications, Inc., No. 1:19-cv-00982 was filed on July 30, 2019.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by issuing a series of false and/or misleading statements and failing to disclose material adverse facts about GTT’s business, operations, and prospects, and the Interoute acquisition specifically. Among other things, Defendants failed to disclose that: (1) there were delays in migrating Interoute’s legacy systems and processes into GTT’s client management database system; (2) Interoute had made a strategic shift to focus on providing cloud services that deviated from GTT’s core cloud networking business; (3) Interoute’s sales force was underperforming and ineffective at selling GTT’s core cloud networking services; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
Specifically, on May 8, 2019 GTT disclosed a larger than expected loss for the first quarter of 2019, including a sequential decline in revenues. GTT blamed its poor performance on a host of issues with the Interoute integration, including migrating legacy systems into GTT’s management database, discrepancies with Interoute’s billing systems, and a poor salesforce. GTT further disclosed that shortly before the acquisition, Interoute had made a strategic shift to sell cloud services that deviated from GTT’s core cloud networking business. In response to these disclosures, GTT’s stock price plummeted 17.5% on May 8, 2019, and continued to fall the following day, for a two-day decline of over 25%.
On this news, GTT’s stock price fell from $40.29 on May 7, 2019 to $33.25 on May 8, 2019—a $7.04 or a 17.47% drop. The stock price continued to fall the following day, closing at only $29.91 per share, for a two-day decline of over 25%.
