YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that, pursuant to an Order of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, a hearing will be held on December 8, 2021, at 12:00 pm., before the Honorable Zahid N. Quraishi, United States District Judge, at the Clarkson S. Fisher Building & United States Courthouse, 402 East State Street, Trenton, New Jersey 08608, to determine: (1) whether a proposed Settlement of In re Synchronoss Technologies Inc. Securities Litigation, Case No. 17-2978 (D.N.J.) (the “Action”) including the sum of Nineteen Million ($19,000,000.00) in cash should be approved by the Court as fair, reasonable, and adequate, which would result in this Action being dismissed with prejudice and will prevent Settlement Class Members from ever being part of any other lawsuit against the Defendants (and parties related to them) about the legal claims being resolved by this Settlement, as set forth in the Stipulation of Settlement dated August 19, 2021; (2) whether, for purposes of the proposed Settlement only, the Action should be certified as a class action on behalf of the Settlement Class, Lead Plaintiff should be certified as Class Representative for the Settlement Class, and Lead Counsel should be appointed as Class Counsel for the Settlement Class; (3) whether the Plan of Allocation of settlement proceeds is fair, reasonable, and adequate and therefore should be approved; and (4) whether Lead Plaintiff’s Counsel should be awarded attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred in connection with this Action, together with interest thereon, and whether the Lead Plaintiff should receive an award of its costs and expenses in representing the Settlement Class. Those matters will be addressed by the Court at the Settlement Hearing to be held on December 8, 2021.
