Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 21, 2019

The lawsuit alleges that Defendants made misleading statements regarding the number of Sprint’s net postpaid subscriber additions.  Specifically, Defendants stated that Sprint had made 309,000 total postpaid net additions for the period ending December 31, 2018, but failed to disclose that these increases were driven by free lines offered to Sprint customers.  On April 15, 2019, Sprint filed a letter with the Federal Communications Commission revealing that the company’s postpaid net additions had recently been driven by ‘free lines’ offered to Sprint customers and the inclusion of less valuable tablet and other non-phone devices.  Then, on April 17, 2019, The Wall Street Journal published an article stating that Sprint “has touted adding new wireless connections for six straight quarters[, but] many of those gains were free lines or existing customers that switched services.”  On this news, Sprint’s stock price fell over 6%.

APPLE, INC. (NASDAQ: AAPL)

Class Period: November 2, 2018 and January 2, 2019

Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 17, 2019

Join the action: https://www.bernlieb.com/cases/apple-aapl-class-action-lawsuit-fraud-stock-127/

The lawsuit alleges that Defendants failed to disclose that: (a) the U.S.-China trade war had negatively impacted demand for iPhones and Apple’s pricing power in greater China; (b) due to Apple discounting the cost of replacement batteries to make up for the company’s prior conduct of intentionally degrading the performance of the batteries in older iPhones, the rate at which Apple customers were replacing their batteries in older iPhones, rather than purchasing new iPhones, was negatively impacting Apple’s iPhone sales growth; (c) as a result of slowing demand, Apple had slashed production orders from suppliers for the new 2018 iPhone models and cut prices to reduce inventory; and (d) Defendants’ decision to withhold unit sales for iPhones and other hardware, which was a metric relevant to investors and their view of the company’s financial performance, was designed to and would mask declines in unit sales of the iPhone.  On January 2, 2019, Apple disclosed that first quarter fiscal 2019 revenues would be $84 billion – approximately $5 billion below the low-end of the forecasted range that the company had announced just eight weeks earlier on November 1, 2018, due to falling iPhone sales in China.  On this news, the price of Apple common stock fell more than 9%.
