Summary of the Action and Settlement
On September 13, 2019, Lead Plaintiffs filed a Consolidated Class Action Complaint (the “Complaint”) asserting claims against all Defendants under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, and against the Individual Defendants under Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act. Among other things, the Complaint alleged that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and omissions concerning: (i) the status and condition of the Company’s legacy Information Technology (“IT”) systems and infrastructure; and (ii) whether Conduent’s IT infrastructure had been inventoried, or mapped, prior to, and then, during the Class Period, which was a necessary step before the Company could consolidate and migrate its data centers. The Complaint further alleges that the price of Conduent publicly traded common stock was artificially inflated as a result of Defendants’ allegedly false and misleading statements and omissions, and declined when the alleged truth was revealed at the end of the Class Period.
The Parties reached an agreement in principle to settle the Action for $32,000,000, subject to the execution of a customary “long form” stipulation and agreement of settlement and related papers. The Parties executed the Stipulation, which sets forth the terms and condition of the Settlement, on December 1, 2022. On January 27, 2023, the Court preliminarily approved the Settlement, authorized the Notice to be disseminated to Class Members, and scheduled the Settlement Hearing to consider whether to grant final approval to the Settlement.
If you are a member of the Class, your rights will be affected and you may be eligible for a payment from the Settlement.
The Class consists of:
All persons who purchased Conduent common stock on the open market on a United States stock exchange from February 21, 2018 through November 6, 2018, both dates inclusive, and who were damaged thereby.
Excluded from the Class are: (1) Conduent Incorporated and its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, legal representatives, predecessors, successors and assigns, and any entity in which any of them have a controlling interest or are a parent; and (2) Defendants, their Immediate Family members, employees, affiliates, legal representatives, heirs, predecessors, successors and assigns, and any entity in which any of them has a controlling interest. Also excluded from the Class are any persons or entities who or which exclude themselves by submitting a timely and valid request for exclusion that is accepted by the Court.
Please read the Notice to fully understand your rights and options. Copies of the Notice and Claim Form can be found in the menu at the top of this page.
Payments to eligible claimants will be made only if the Court approves the Settlement and a Plan of Allocation, only after any appeals are resolved, and after the completion of all claims processing. Please be patient, as this process will take some time to complete.
|YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THE SETTLEMENT:
|SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM ON OR BEFORE MAY 19, 2023
||The only way to be eligible to receive a payment from the Settlement. If you are a Class Member and you remain in the Class, it is in your best interest to submit a Claim Form, because you will be bound by the Settlement approved by the Court and will give up all Released Claims against the Released Defendants Parties.
|EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM THE CLASS ON OR BEFORE MAY 3, 2023
||If you exclude yourself from the Class, you will not be eligible to receive any payment from the Settlement. This is the only option that, assuming your claim is timely brought, might allow you to ever bring or be part of any other lawsuit against Defendants and/or the other Released Defendant Parties concerning the Released Claims.
|OBJECT ON OR BEFORE MAY 3, 2023
||If you do not like the Settlement, the Plan of Allocation, or Co-Class Counsel’s Fee and Expense Application, you may write to the Court and explain why you do not like them. You cannot object if you are not a Class Member or if you have requested exclusion.
|GO TO A HEARING ON MAY 24, 2023
AND FILE A NOTICE OF INTENTION TO APPEAR SO THAT IT IS RECEIVED BY NO LATER THAN MAY 3, 2023
|Ask to speak to the Court at the Settlement Hearing about the Settlement, the Plan of Allocation, or Co-Class Counsel’s Fee and Expense Application.
||If you are a member of the Class and you do not submit a valid Claim Form, you will not be eligible for a payment from the Settlement. You will, however, be bound by the Judgment and orders entered by the Court, which means that you will give up your right to sue about the claims that are resolved by the Settlement.
