Lead Plaintiff Deadline : June 21, 2019
Join the action: https://www.zlk.com/pslra-1/sprint-corporation-loss-form?prid=1335&wire=1
The complaint alleges that Sprint made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material information. In particular, the complaint alleges that throughout the class period Sprint misrepresented the number of net postpaid subscriber additions in its Form 10-Q for the period ending December 31, 2018. Sprint would later admit that the data was "incomplete," and "not a substitute for a realistic analysis of the key factors that are most probative of Sprint's overall competitive position and prospects," because "postpaid net additions recently have been driven by 'free lines' offered to Sprint customers and the inclusion of less valuable tablet and other non-phone devices, as well as pre to post migrations that do not represent 'new' Sprint customers."
