On December 14, 2017, the Company provided an update to stockholders, highlighting that its "restructuring and repositioning in 2016 has led to solid growth in 2017, and has defined [the Company’s] innovation in both services and market positioning, establishing a strong outlook for our success in 2018 and beyond."

On June 7, 2019, Marcus Aurelius Value published a report questioning the propriety of Pareteum’s accounting and statements about its backlog, backlog conversion rates, and receivables. The report concluded, “[w]e see massive downside potential and believe the stock is completely uninvestible.”

On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $0.83, or over 24%, to close at $2.58 per share on June 7, 2019.

Next, on June 25, 2019, Viceroy Research Group published a report identifying several sources of “uncollectable” revenue presented in Pareteum’s financial results, concluding that "total revenue is overstated by 42%."
