Bernstein Liebhard LLP Announces That Approximately Five Weeks Remain To Make A Motion For Lead Plaintiff In A Class Against Sprint Corporation

NEW YORK, May 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bernstein Liebhard LLP announced today that approximately five weeks remain to file a motion for lead plaintiff in a class action pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities (the "Class") who purchased the common stock of Sprint Corporation ("Sprint" or the "Company") (NYSE:S) during the period between January 31, 2019 and April 16, 2019 (the "Class Period").  The complaint alleges that defendants violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff in the Sprint class action, you must move the court no later than June 21, 2019.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you take no action, you may remain an absent class member.

Sprint is a communications company that sells wireless and wireline communications products and services to individuals, businesses, government entities, and resellers.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the number of net postpaid subscriber additions in its Form 10-Q filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for the period ending December 31, 2018 (the "10-Q").  Specifically, in the 10-Q the Company highlighted that it had made 309,000 total postpaid net additions – a closely watched metric by Wall Street analysts – but failed to disclose that these increases were driven by free lines offered to Sprint customers.  

On April 15, 2019, in a letter filed with the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC"), Sprint admitted that the data in the 10-Q 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 some of the cited subscriber additions did not represent new Sprint customers.
