Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP Alerts Investors to Securities Class Actions Against CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL)

March 26, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 26, 2019--Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), a national securities and consumer rights litigation firm, is notifying investors that class action lawsuits have been filed against CenturyLink, Inc. (“CenturyLink” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CTL), and certain other defendants, related to alleged violations of federal securities laws. If you purchased CenturyLink common stock between May 10, 2018 and March 4, 2019, you are encouraged to contact a Scott+Scott attorney at (844) 818-6982 for more information.

CenturyLink provides various communications services to residential, business, wholesale, and governmental customers primarily in the United States. On November 1, 2017, CenturyLink acquired Level 3 Communications, Inc. (“Level 3”), a telecommunications and internet service provider.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose 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 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, CenturyLink’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On March 4, 2019, CenturyLink announced it would not be able to timely file its annual 10-K report for the period ended December 31, 2018 because it had “identified material weaknesses in internal controls over [its] revenue recording processes and the procedures for measuring fair value of assets and liabilities assumed in connection with the Level 3 [ ] acquisition.”

On this news, shares of CenturyLink fell $0.82 per share – over 6% – to close at $12.15 per share on March 4, 2019.
