IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Khang & Khang LLP (the “Firm”) announces the filing of a securities class action lawsuit against Frontier Communications Corporation (“Frontier” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: FTR).

There has been no class certification in this case yet. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member as well.
According to the Complaint, throughout the Class Period, Frontier made materially false and/or misleading statements, and/or failed to disclose: that the Company acquired a substantial number of non-paying accounts as part of its acquisition of the wireline operations of Verizon Communications, Inc.; that the Company would be required to increase its reserves, and write off amounts from accounts receivable associated with the non-paying accounts; and that as a result of the above, the Company’s statements about its business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. On May 2, 2017, Frontier reported a first quarter 2017 net loss of $75 million and a year-over-year first quarter revenue decline of $53 million. On the same day, the Company held a conference call to discuss its first quarter financial results. During the call, CFO Ralph McBride stated that approximately $16 million of the sequential revenue decline was a result of cleanup of California, Texas, and Florida non-paying accounts and the automation of legacy non-pay disconnects. When this news was announced, shares of Frontier declined in value materially, which caused investors harm according to the Complaint.
