Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of Crown Castle International Corp. (CCI) Investors

February 29, 2020 GMT

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 28, 2020--

Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”), a national investors rights law firm, announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Crown Castle International Corp. (“Crown Castle” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CCI ) securities between February 26, 2018 and February 26, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Crown Castle investors have until April 27, 2020 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

If you suffered a loss on your Crown Castle investments or would like to inquire about potentially pursuing claims to recover your loss under the federal securities laws, you can submit your contact information here or contact Charles H. Linehan, of GPM at 310-201-9150, Toll-Free at 888-773-9224, via email shareholders@glancylaw.com or visit our website at www.glancylaw.com to learn more about your rights.

On February 26, 2020, Crown Castle announced that it would restate its financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 and for the first three quarters in the year ended December 31, 2019. According to the press release, the Company had recognized service revenues from its tower installation services in a manner that “was not acceptable under GAAP.”

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $14.38 per share, or over 8.8%, to close at $148.31 per share on February 27, 2020, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Crown Castle’s internal control over financial reporting and disclosures controls and procedures were ineffective and materially weak; (2) Crown Castle’s financial accounting and reporting was not in accordance with GAAP; (3) Crown Castle’s net income, adjusted EBITDA, and AFFO were inflated; (4) Crown Castle would need to restate its financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, and unaudited financial information for the quarterly and year-to-date periods in the year ended December 31, 2018 and for the first three quarters in the year ended December 31, 2019; and (5) as a result, Defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
