or by telephone at (212) 363-7500, toll-free: (877) 363-5972. There
is no cost or obligation to you.

The complaint alleges that BT Group made false and/or misleading
statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) BT Group's Italian
division had engaged in improper accounting practices; (ii) as a result,
BT Group significantly overstated its earnings; (iii) the aforementioned
would foreseeably cause BT Group to cut its revenue, earnings, and free
cash flow forecasts; and (iv) as a result, BT Group's public statements
were materially false and misleading.

On October 27, 2016, the Company announced that it uncovered
"inappropriate management behavior" at its Italian division and
"identified certain historical accounting errors and reassessed certain
areas of management judgment." As a result, the Company announced that
it had "written down the value of items on the balance sheet by £145
[million]." Then, on January 24, 2017, BT Group issued a news release
"the adjustments identified have increased from the £145m announced in
our half-year update to a total of around £530m."

If you suffered a loss in BT Group you have until March
27, 2017
to request that the Court appoint you as lead
plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that
you serve as a lead plaintiff.
