On November 2, 2022, Lincoln National reported a net loss of $2.6 billion for the third quarter of 2022, compared to a net income of $318 million for the third quarter of 2021 the previous year. Lincoln National explained “[t]he current quarter’s adjusted operating results included net unfavorable notable items of $2.0 billion, or $11.62 per share, related to the company’s annual review of [deferred acquisition costs] and reserve assumptions” and also disclosed that it “incurred a $634 million goodwill impairment to the life insurance business.” On this news, the price of Lincoln National shares declined by $17.27 per share, or approximately 33.2%, from $51.20 per share on November 2, 2022 to close at $34.83 per share on November 3, 2022.

The lawsuit alleges that Lincoln National throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Lincoln National was experiencing a decline in its variable universal life insurance business; (ii) as a result, the goodwill associated with the life insurance business was overstated; (iii) consequently, Lincoln National’s policy lapse assumptions were outdated; (iv) thus, Lincoln National’s reserves were overstated; and (v) as such, Lincoln National’s reported financial results and financial statements were misstated.
