ADT is a home security company taken private by Apollo Global in May
2016 and taken public again via the January 2018 IPO.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s
business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
(i) ADT’s Registration Statement made material misrepresentations and
omissions by failing to disclose historical metrics integral to
appraising ADT “key value drivers.”; (ii) ADT’s discussions of risk
factors did not mention, or adequately describe the risk posed by, the
then already occurring 75% increase in year-over-year losses, nor the
other complete yet undisclosed materially negative 4Q and FY 2017
results and trends, nor ADT’s dependence on the Trump tax cut to meet
even the extreme low end of its 2017 estimate ranges, nor the omission
of historically critical metrics, nor the likely and consequent
materially adverse effects on the Company’s future results, share price,
and prospects; (iii) Defendants’ failure to disclose the then complete
materially negative 4Q and FY 2017 results and trends, and ADT’s
dependence on the Trump tax cut to meet even the extreme low end of its
2017 estimate ranges, much less the likely material effects they would
have on ADT’s share price, rendered false and misleading the
Registration Statement’s many references to known risks that “if”
occurring “might” or “could” affect the Company; and (iv)
as a result, ADT’s public statements were materially false and
misleading at all relevant times.

On March 15, 2018, ADT announced its disappointing fourth-quarter and
full-year 2017 earnings and other financial results, stating, in
relevant part: “[T]he Company reported net income of $638 million, up
from negative $85 million last year, and diluted earnings per share of
$0.99 versus $(0.13) in the prior year. Excluding
special items, diluted earnings per share were $(0.06) versus $(0.07) in
the same period last year. The net income results include a $690
million tax benefit due to the 2017 Tax Reform.”

On this news, the price for ADT shares declined nearly 20%, from a high
of $10.72 per share on March 15, 2017, to a low of $8.63 per share on
March 16, 2017. As of the time of the filing of this action, ADT shares
continue to trade below $9 per share, a decline of over 35% from the $14
per share offering price.
