NEW YORK, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against United Technologies Corporation ("United Technologies" or the "Company") (NYSE: UTX) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased United Technologies securities between April 21, 2015 and July 20, 2015, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/utx.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The complaint alleges that throughout the class period Defendants issued materially false and/or misleading statements by issuing and reaffirming unfounded and inflated earnings guidance, primarily based on the planning assumptions in two of the Company's key business units: UTC Aerospace Systems ("UTAS") and Otis Elevator Co. ("Otis"). Defendants' Class Period representations were materially false and misleading because Defendants failed to disclose or indicate that United Technologies' earnings forecast relied on planning assumptions for the UTAS and Otis units that were not fully scrutinized and were far too aggressive.
On July 21, 2015, United Technologies cut its 2015 earnings guidance due to weak performance by the UTAS and Otis units. Following this news, United Technologies stock lost hundreds of millions of dollars in market capitalization, and the stock price dropped from a Class Period high of $119.14 per share on May 14, 2015, to close at $102.71 per share on July 21, 2015.
