KAPLAN FOX & KILSHEIMER LLP ANNOUNCES CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST LUCENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC. AND CERTAIN OF ITS OFFICERS

NEW YORK -- January 14, 2000/Counsel for Class Plaintiff, Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP today issued the following:

A class action has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of Lucent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: LU - news; "Lucent" or the "Company") between October 27, 1999 and January 6, 2000, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The lawsuit alleges that during the Class Period, Lucent led the market to believe that its plan to restructure its operations into four divisions would produce consistently more profitable results.  Based significantly on guidance provided by the Company, the price of Lucent stock continued to rise throughout the Class Period, reaching a high of over $84.00 per share on December 9, 1999.  Then, on January 6, 2000, Lucent revealed that results for the first fiscal quarter of 2000 would fall materially below analysts' expectations.  This revelation caused the price of Lucent common stock to fall to $52.19, a decline of 38% from its Class Period high.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Lucent common stock during the Class Period.  Plaintiff is represented by the law firm of Kaplan  Fox & Kilsheimer LLP, which has many years of experience in prosecuting investor class actions and extensive experience in actions involving financial reporting and management fraud.  For more information about Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP, you may visit our website at www.KaplanFox.com.
