On May 17, 2018, Plaintiff's law firm filed a press release announcing the lawsuit. The lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Symantec’s internal controls over financial reporting were materially weak and deficient; (2) Symantec’s later disclosed “reporting of certain Non-GAAP measures including those that could impact executive compensation programs” would lead to heightened regulatory scrutiny by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”); and (3) as a result, Symantec’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 23, 2018, the Court issued an Order consolidating cases and appointing Lead Plaintiff. On October 4, the Court issued an Order approving Lead Plaintiff's selection of Counsel.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
