The complaint alleges that defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) 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 Statements 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.

PolarityTE, Inc. (NASDAQ:COOL)
Class Period: March 31, 2017 – June 22, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: August 27, 2018
The complaint alleges that on June 25, 2018, Citron Research (“Citron”) issued a report in which Citron detailed the Company’s track record of material misrepresentations, misstatements, and omissions pertaining to the status of a key patent application. The Citron report noted that as far back as March 31, 2017, the USPTO notified the Company of its non-final rejection of patent #14/954,335. Citron’s report continued to highlight the Company’s subsequent failure to disclose the patent’s non-final rejection status and its continued behavior of representing the technology linked to the patent in a positive light. The report also pointed to the USPTO’s final rejection of the patent on June 4, 2018 information that the Company also failed to disclose. On this news, COOL stock plunged more than 34%.
