NEW INVESTIGATION ALERT: The Schall Law Firm Announces it is Investigating Claims Against Unum Group and Encourages Investors with Losses in Excess of $100,000 to Contact the Firm

Schall Law Firm, a national shareholder rights litigation firm,
announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Unum
Group (“Unum” or the “Company”) (NYSE: UNM)
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. On May 1, 2018, Unum issued a press release titled, “”Unum
Group Reports First Quarter 2018 Results,” which included the fact that
the loss ratio for the Company’s long-term care division was 96.6% in
the first quarter of 2018, as opposed to 88.6% for the first quarter of
2017. On May 2, 2018, Unum’s Chief Financial Officer, John F. McGarry,
stated: “benefits experience this quarter was driven by new claim
incidence that ran much higher than expected,” adding that “the higher
loss ratio this quarter was negatively impacted by a lower level of
policy terminations.” McGarry also said, “we continue to experience a
high level of volatility in this line and expect it will continue in the
future.” Following these disclosures, Unum’s share price fell $8.12, or
16.95%, to close at $39.78 on May 2, 2018. Based on the press release
and subsequent call, Unum’s share price fell 16.95%, or $8.12 per share,
to close at $39.78 on May 2, 2018.
