Mortgage-free home in Cleveland Heights presented to Pepinrivera
family during key ceremony today

CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As part of its ongoing commitment to give back to the communities it
serves, Citizens Bank has again partnered with Military Warriors Support
Foundation (MWSF) to donate a newly renovated, mortgage-free home to a
deserving veteran and his family.

The Cleveland Heights home – renovated by Citizens Bank colleagues and
donated by the bank to Military Warriors Support Foundation’s
Homes4WoundedHeroes program – was presented today to Retired Sergeant
First Class Charlie Pepinrivera, who honorably served his country in
Kuwait, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Inspired by his desire to make a
difference and defend his country, Charlie enlisted in the Puerto Rico
National Guard in 1993 and he entered active service in 1998. For his
service, Charlie has received numerous awards and commendations
including the Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, and the
Combat Action Badge.

“We are proud to honor Charlie’s brave service by providing him with a
home that has been refurbished with pride and great care,” said Brad
Conner, vice chairman and head of Consumer Banking, Citizens Bank. “Our
colleagues are committed to supporting the communities where we live and
work, and we are truly excited to have helped renovate this home for
Charlie and his family.”

“It is a privilege and an honor to award a mortgage-free home to Charlie
and his family,” said Kathy Feeney, Executive Advisor of Housing
Initiatives with Military Warriors Support Foundation. “This amazing
opportunity doesn’t get to happen by itself. Together, with donors like
Citizens Bank, we are given the opportunity to serve those who have
served for us.”

Charlie and his wife Maribel and their 6 children: Joseph, Mariela,
Joyce, Gabriel, Joimar and Jonnel will be relocating from San Antonio,
Texas to be closer to family in Cleveland. During their time in Texas,
the Pepinrivera family has been very active in their community and has
volunteered their efforts to feed the homeless; provide clothing and
school materials for children; and spread happiness and cheer to others
through inspiring music. They look forward to playing an active role in
their new community.

More than 100 Citizens Bank colleagues have donated more than 2000 hours
volunteering on various projects to improve the house. Citizens Bank
colleagues donated their time and talents, as well as items for the home
and gift cards for various stores in the area.

This donation represents a long-term commitment the bank has made to
give back to the communities it serves through its Citizens Helping
Citizens initiative. Citizens Helping Citizens Provide Shelter is one
component of this program. During the past five years, Citizens Bank
partnered with Military Warriors Support Foundation to donate homes to
military families in New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Michigan.

Since 2010, Military Warriors Support Foundation has awarded over 840
mortgage-free homes through their Homes4WoundedHeroes program, and has
assisted combat wounded veterans, Gold Star Spouses and their families
in paying off over $20 million in debt through their family and
financial mentorship.

On August 28, 2019, Ollie’s reported that store sales decreased 1.7% during the second quarter of 2019. Further, Ollie’s disclosed that a “bottleneck issue” had existed in its supply chain “for most all of Q2” and was not corrected until “the last week of the quarter.”

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#DXC–Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all investors that purchased DXC Technology Company (NYSE: DXC) securities pursuant to and/or traceable to the company’s April 2017 registration statement and prospectus. Investors have until November 15, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

Click here to participate in the action.

In April of 2017 DXC was created when Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company’s Enterprise Services segment was spun off and merged with Computer Sciences Corporation. In conjunction with this transaction, DXC issued a registration and prospectus.

On February 6, 2019, a civil complaint was filed alleging that certain officers of the company were using cost-cutting efforts such as layoffs to inflate short-term financial metrics and that these efforts substantially decreased the company’s ability to deliver contractually obligated services to its clients.

On August 8, 2019, the company lowered its fiscal 2020 revenue guidance by $500 million compared to previously issued guidance.

On this news, the company’s share price fell $15.74, or over 30%, to close at $35.91 per share on August 9, 2019, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint, filed on September 16, 2019, alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the planned “workforce optimization” plan involved implementing arbitrary quotas; (2) that the plan would cut thousands of jobs at the company; (3) that jobs that were particularly at risk of being cut were held by longer-tenured, knowledgeable, and highly compensated senior personnel; (4) that these job terminations were selectively timed to artificially inflate reported earnings and other financial metrics; (5) that, at the time of the merger, defendant Lawrie had forecasted plans for a $2.7 billion workforce reduction in the first year; (6) that, as a result of these workforce terminations, the company was unlikely to deliver on client contracts; (7) that, as a result of the foregoing, the company’s clients would be dissatisfied and the relationships would be impaired; and (8) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about the company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On the date the complaint was filed, DXC stock traded as low as $32.34 per share, a 45% decline from the $59 per share price at the time of the spin-off and merger.

If you purchased DXC securities during the Class Period, are a long-term stockholder, have information, would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Brandon Walker or Melissa Fortunato by email at investigations@bespc.com, or telephone at (212) 355-4648, or by filling out this contact form.

In March 2017, the company completed its initial public offering (“IPO”), in which it sold 25 million shares of common stock at $14.00 per share.

On August 8, 2019, the company issued a press release delaying its second quarter earnings conference call and quarterly report, citing an ongoing review by its audit committee. In a Form 8-K filed with the SEC on the same day, the company stated that the review concerned, among other things, expense reimbursements and certain transactions involving related parties or potential conflicts of interest. The Form 8-K also stated that approximately $370,000 had been improperly reimbursed to members of senior management since the IPO.

On this news, the company’s share price fell $4.59 per share, or over 26%, to close at $12.75 per share on August 9, 2019.

By the date this class action was filed, ProPetro stock was trading as low as $11.44 per share, a nearly 18% decline from the $14 per share IPO price.

The complaint, filed on September 16, 2019, alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the company’s executive officers were improperly reimbursed for certain expenses; (2) that the company had engaged in certain undisclosed transactions with related parties; (3) that the company lacked adequate disclosure controls and procedures; (4) that the company lacked effective internal control over financial reporting; and (5) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about the company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
