Crown Castle International Corp. (CCI) Securities Class Action:

The litigation concerns the propriety of Crown Castle’s accounting policies relating to the Company’s services business.

According to the Complaint, Defendants repeatedly represented that the Company complied with GAAP and affirmed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, while concealing that Crown Castle was violating GAAP and its internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures was ineffective and materially weak.  Specifically, Crown Castle was materially inflating its net income, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted funds from operations.

The truth emerged, according to the complaint, on Feb. 26, 2020, when the Company admitted it improperly recognized the entirety of the transaction price from its tower installation servicers as revenue upon the completion of the installation services.  GAAP mandates that portions of the transaction price – those associated with permanent improvements – be recognized on a ratable basis.  As a result, net income in 2019 had been overstated by approximately $100 million, and its previous 2020 outlook for net income would need to be reduced by $90 million.  In addition, the Company divulged it would restate its financials for 2016-2018, as well as for Q1 – Q3 2019.  Finally, the Company revealed its internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures was ineffective as of Dec. 31, 2019.

This news sent the price of Crown Castle shares sharply lower on Feb. 27, 2020.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving Crown Castle intentionally misled investors with its admittedly faulty service business accounting,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
