The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Reminds Investors of July 20th Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against ADT Inc. (ADT)

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the July 20,
2018 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action
filed on behalf of investors that purchased ADT Inc. (“ADT” or the
“Company”) (NYSE: ADT)
securities between January 15, 2018 and May 21, 2018, inclusive
(the “Class Period”). ADT investors have until July 20, 2018 to
file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their ADT investments are encouraged to

in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On March 15, 2018, ADT announced poor fourth-quarter 2017 financial
results, stating, in relevant part, that “diluted earnings per share
was $(0.06) versus $(0.07) in the same period last year” when excluding
special items.

On this news, ADT’s share price fell $1.28, or more than 12%, to close
at $8.93 per share, on March 15, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that, Defendants made
false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1)
ADT’s Registration Statement made material misrepresentations and
omissions by failing to disclose historical metrics integral to
appraising ADT “key value drivers”; (2) ADT’s discussion of risk factors
did not mention or adequately describe the risk posed by the already
occurring 75% increase in year-over-year losses, the other complete yet
undisclosed materially negative 4Q and FY 2017 results and trends, ADT’s
dependence on the Trump tax cut to meet even the extreme low end of its
2017 estimate ranges, the omission of historically critical metrics, and
the likely and consequently materially adverse effects on ADT’s future
results, share price, and prospects; (3) defendants’ failure to disclose
then-complete materially negative 4Q and FY 2017 results and trends, and
ADT’s dependence on the Trump tax cut to meet even the extreme low end
of its 2017 estimate ranges, much less the likely material effects they
would have on ADT’s share price, rendered false and misleading the
Registration Statement’s many references to known risks that “if”
occurring “might” or “could” affect ADT; and (4) as a result, ADT’s
public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant
times.

If you purchased shares of ADT during the Class Period you may move the
Court no later than July 20, 2018 to ask the Court to
appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not
take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or
take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish
to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning
this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these
matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of
