Several Pareteum class action lawsuits were filed on behalf of purchasers of Pareteum Corporation securities during various time periods, the longest of which is between December 14, 2017 and October 21, 2019 (the “Class Period”) charging Pareteum and several of its executive officers with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  The first-filed cases are pending in two courts: DeMarco v. Pareteum Corporation, No. 1:19-cv-05949 (E.D.N.Y) and O’Brien v. Pareteum Corporation, No. 1:19-cv-09767 (S.D.N.Y.).

Pareteum operates a communications cloud services platform in Europe and internationally.

The Pareteum class action lawsuits allege defendants misrepresented Pareteum as a “rapidly growing Cloud Communications Platform company” that was poised for exponential growth due to the Company’s involvement in new industries such as block chain, customer wins, a rising “36-month contract revenue backlog,” and effective contract conversion rates when in truth none of that was true.  The Pareteum class action lawsuits further allege that, unbeknownst to investors and contrary to defendants’ statements, Pareteum contracted with either fake entities, related-third parties, or companies so small they had no chance of ever satisfying the value defendants assigned to their contracts.  Moreover, throughout the Class Period, defendants violated Generally Accepted Accounting Principles by prematurely recognizing revenues and inflating accounts receivable.

The truth began emerging through a series of disclosures occurring between June 7, 2019 and October 21, 2019, when Pareteum announced that it would restate its consolidated financial statements as of and for the full year ended December 31, 2018, and interim periods ended March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2019.  As a result of these disclosures, the value of Pareteum stock has consistently decreased, damaging investors.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Pareteum securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Pareteum class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff will act on behalf of all other class members in directing the Pareteum class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Pareteum class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery of the Pareteum class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.  If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff of the Pareteum class action lawsuit or have questions concerning your rights regarding the Pareteum class action lawsuit, please provide your information here or contact counsel, Brian E.
