The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the
Class Period, Defendants made 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: (1) that the Company was experiencing a higher claims
incidence for its long-term care business; (2) that the Company was
experiencing less favorable policy terminations in connection with its
long-term care business; (3) that, as such, the Company's long-term care
business loss ratio would reach the upper 90% range; and (4) that, as a
result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about Unum's business,
operations, and prospects, including statements related to the Company's
long-term care reserves and capital management plans, were materially
false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On May 2, 2018, the Company held a conference call to discuss its first
quarter 2018 financial results. On the call, Defendant John F. McGarry
("McGarry"), the Company's Chief Financial Officer ("CFO"), elaborated
on the Company's disclosures in the May 1, 2018 press release, stating
"[b]enefits experience this quarter was driven by new claim incidence
that ran much higher than expected" and "the higher loss ratio this
quarter was negatively impacted by a lower level of policy terminations."

On this news, the Company's stock price fell $8.12 per share, or nearly
17%, to close at $39.78 per share on May 2, 2018, on unusually heavy
trading volume.
