Haeggquist & Eck, LLP Investigates Frontier Communications Corp. for Potential Misconduct Regarding Assets Acquired from Verizon

SAN DIEGO--()--Haeggquist & Eck, LLP (“HAE”) announces an investigation of potential corporate misconduct at Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR) (“Frontier” or the “Company”). Specifically, HAE is examining potential misrepresentations by Frontier insiders concerning wireline operations Frontier acquired from Verizon (NYSE: VZ) in April 2016. Frontier has since belatedly admitted that many of the acquired wireline operations included non-paying accounts. Indeed, by February 2017, Frontier suffered an $80 million net loss for the fourth quarter of 2016, largely due to these underperforming assets. This huge decline was followed by a $75 million first quarter 2017 net loss, among other negative financial impacts. Frontier’s stock trading price fell substantially with the announcement of these losses.

Several securities class action lawsuits were filed against Frontier in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut (“the Class Action”). The Class Action currently seeks damages on behalf of shareholders who purchased and/or acquired Frontier’s securities between April 1, 2016 and May 2, 2017. The deadline to move to be appointed lead plaintiff in the Class Action (“Lead Plaintiff Deadline”) is November 27, 2017.
