ROSH HA'AYIN, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Partner Communications Company Ltd. ("Partner" or the "Company") (NASDAQ and TASE: PTNR), a leading Israeli communications operator, announces that the Company received a lawsuit and a motion for the recognition of this lawsuit as a class action, filed against Partner and its fully owned subsidiary, 012 Smile Telecom Ltd. ("012 Smile") in the Central District Court on April 11, 2018.
The claim alleges that there is a malfunction in the telephony system of Partner and 012 Smile (the "Respondents"), according to which when a call recipient activates a follow-me service to a number abroad (directly or via intermediate destination, from which a follow-me service is also diverted to a number overseas) and the call is diverted abroad via 012 Smile, the call segment charge from Israel to overseas applies to the caller, as if he placed an international call, rather than to the recipient of the call that activated the follow-me service, thereby the Respondents are violating the provisions of the law and the agreements with their customers.
The total amount claimed against the Respondents if the lawsuit is recognized as a class action, was not stated by the plaintiff.
Partner is reviewing and assessing the lawsuit and is unable at this preliminary stage, to evaluate, with any degree of certainty, the probability of success of the lawsuit or the range of potential exposure, if any.
