Recently an amended securities fraud complaint was filed against GTT and certain of the Company’s executive officers on behalf of investors who purchased shares of GTT’s common stock between February 26, 2018 and August 7, 2019 (the “Class Period”).
The Class Period begins on February 26, 2018, when GTT announced a $2.3 billion acquisition of Interoute Communications Holdings S.A. (“Interoute”), a telecommunications company that owned the largest fiber network in Europe. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period the defendants materially mislead investors about the integration progress of Interoute into GTT.
As detailed in the complaint, on May 8, 2019, GTT announced its first revenue decline in four years, which the defendants directly attributed to “delays related to integration activities and training as we migrated Interoute’s legacy systems” onto GTT’s Client Management Database. Following this disclosure, GTT’s stock price fell $10.98 per share, or more than 25% in value, to close on May 9, 2019 at $29.91 per share.
Then on August 8, 2019, GTT announced another unexpected decline in revenue that defendants again directly attributed to “post integration challenges” arising from the Interoute acquisition. Following this news, GTT’s stock price fell an additional $5.56 per share, or nearly 50% in value, to close on August 8, 2018 at $6.09 per share.
