Telephone and Data Systems, Inc. (TDS; TDSPrU; TDSPrV)
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Telephone and Data Systems, Inc. (“TDS” or the “Company”) (NYSE: TDS, TDSPrU, TDSPrV) and certain of its officers, on behalf of all persons and entities that purchased, or otherwise acquired TDS securities between May 6, 2022 and November 3, 2022, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws.
The Complaint alleges that the Company and its subsidiary, United States Cellular Corporation (“UScellular”), made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) defendants had no reason to believe UScellular’s “free upgrade” promotional activity, which was tested and trialed during the second quarter of 2022, was effective at reducing the Company’s postpaid churn rate as they represented to investors, as opposed to merely adding new postpaid subscribers, when its churn rate was actually increasing or remaining constant over most quarters in the class period; (2) UScellular was not making progress with respect to its churn rate, as it represented to investors; (3) UScellular was not in fact balancing its promotional activity and its profitability; (4) due to extreme competition among postpaid carriers, UScellular did not have the flexibility to offset the costs from widespread, expensive promotions with price increases; and (5) as a result of the Companies’ decision for UScellular to continue engaging in heavy promotions to address its postpaid subscriber churn rate despite any lack of positive impact on churn rate, UScellular’s profitability substantially declined. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
