According to the Complaint, the Company issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: 1) Ericsson prematurely recognized revenues and improperly delayed the recognition of costs related to services contracts; and (2) as a result, Ericsson materially overstated its revenues, margins, and profits during the Class Period.
On July 18, 2017, Ericsson reported disappointing results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017. During the related earnings call, the Company revealed that it had identified 42 long-term service contracts to date with total annual sales of almost $1 billion that Ericsson would exit, renegotiate, or transform. On this news, Ericsson ADS price fell $1.21 per share, or 16.62%, to close at $6.07 per share on July 18, 2017.
