This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Unum was experiencing a higher claims incidence for its long-term care business; (2) Unum was experiencing less favorable policy terminations in connection with its long-term care business; (3) as a result, the Company’s long-term care business loss ratio would reach the upper 90% range; and (4) consequently, Defendants’ statements about Unum’s business, operations, and prospects, including statements related to the Company’s long-term care reserves and capital management plans, were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On May 2, 2018, Unum revealed that its first quarter 2018 loss ratio for its long-term care business was 96.6%, compared to 88.6% for the first quarter of the previous year. The first quarter 2018 loss ratio also surpassed the Company’s previous projections of 85-90%.
