According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Symantec’s internal controls over financial reporting were materially weak and deficient; (2) Symantec’s later disclosed “reporting of certain Non-GAAP measures including those that could impact executive compensation programs” would lead to heightened regulatory scrutiny by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”); and (3) as a result, Symantec’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 16, 2018. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.
