MONDAY DEADLINE: The Schall Law Firm Announces it is Investigating Claims Against Adient plc and Encourages Investors with Losses in Excess of $100,000 to Contact the Firm

November 29, 2018

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 29, 2018--The Schall Law Firm, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Adient plc (“Adient” or “the Company”) (NYSE: ADNT ) for violations of §§10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The investigation focuses on whether the Company issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose information pertinent to investors. Adient touted efficiency improvements in its SS&M business, claiming it was “solidly on track” to achieve a 200-basis-point margin improvement by 2020. This business was actually facing significant challenges and was not likely to achieve the margin improvement target. On January 17, 2018, Adient admitted that near-term results were “significantly impacted by SS&M.” Even at that date, the Company claimed the margin improvement plan was still viable. On May 3, 2018, the Company announced an impairment charge related to the SS&M business and finally admitted “the 200 basis points of margin expansion . . . is no longer going to be achievable.” On June 11, 2018, the CEO of Adient suddenly resigned without explanation. Based on these facts, the Company’s statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Adient, investors suffered damages.
