According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market throughout the class period. Unum was facing a higher incidence of claims in its long-term care business than it had historically. The Company also experienced unfavorable policy terminations in that business. Unum’s loss ratio in long-term care approached the upper 90% range. This resulted in the Company making materially false and misleading public statements. According to the lawsuit, when accurate information about Unum became apparent in the market, investors suffered damages.
