According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Adient touted efficiency improvements in its SS&M business, claiming it was “solidly on track” to achieve a 200-basis-point margin improvement by 2020. This business was actually facing significant challenges and was not likely to achieve the margin improvement target. On January 17, 2018, Adient admitted that near-term results were “significantly impacted by SS&M.” Even at that date, the Company claimed the margin improvement plan was still viable. On May 3, 2018, the Company announced an impairment charge related to the SS&M business and finally admitted “the 200 basis points of margin expansion . . . is no longer going to be achievable.” On June 11, 2018, the CEO of Adient suddenly resigned without explanation. Based on these facts, the Company’s statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Adient, investors suffered damages.
