The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas on behalf of all those who purchased Uniti securities between April 20, 2015 and February 15, 2019 (the “Class Period”).  The case,Safadi v. Uniti Group Inc et al., No. 19-cv-00756 was filed on October 25, 2019, and has been assigned to Judge Brian S. Miller.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Uniti’s financial results were not sustainable because its customer Windstream had defaulted on its unsecured notes; and (2) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Uniti’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On February 15, 2019, United States District Judge Jesse M. Furman released its Findings of Facts and Conclusions of Law declaring that Windstream breached the indenture and awarding Aurelius a monetary judgement in the amount of $310,459,959.10 plus interest.

Over the course of the next three trading days, the price of the Uniti’s common stock continued to plummet to close at $9.23 on February 22, 2019, an overall decline of 53.80 %.
