Attention investors who purchased shares of CenturyLink, Inc. between May 10, 2018 and March 4, 2019:
Rigrodsky & Long is investigating claims brought in a securities fraud class action complaint against CenturyLink, Inc. ("CenturyLink") concerning whether CenturyLink and certain of the Company's directors and/or officers made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose materially adverse facts during the period May 10, 2018 and March 4, 2019, inclusive (the "Class Period"), concerning CenturyLink's business, operations and prospects. These misrepresentations and omissions artificially inflated the price of CenturyLink's stock throughout the Class Period.
Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of CenturyLink, Inc. (“CenturyLink” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CTL) between May 10, 2018 and March 4, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).
If you purchased shares of CenturyLink during the Class Period, or purchased shares prior to the Class Period and still hold CenturyLink, and wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact Seth D. Rigrodsky or Timothy J. MacFall at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 300 Delaware Avenue, Suite 1220, Wilmington, DE 19801, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at http://rigrodskylong.com/contact-us/.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants concealed from the investing public that: (1) CenturyLink had undisclosed material weaknesses in its internal controls over revenue recording processes and the procedures for measuring fair value of assets and liabilities assumed in connection with its Level 3 Communications, Inc. acquisition; (2) consequently, CenturyLink would delay the filing of its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 despite initially reporting those financial results in a press release dated February 13, 2019; and (3) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
According to the Complaint, on March 4, 2019, the Company announced it would not be able to timely file its annual report for the period ended December 31, 2018 because it had “identified material weaknesses in internal controls over the Company’s revenue recording processes and the procedures for measuring fair value of assets and liabilities assumed in connection with the Level 3 Communications, Inc. acquisition.”
On this news, shares of CenturyLink declined over 6%, closing at $12.15 per share on March 4, 2019, on heavy trading volume.
