- Posted on: May 19 2017
Lead Plaintiff Motion Due No Later Than June 30, 2017
New York, N.Y. – May 19, 2017 – The Law Office of Jeffrey M. Haber (the “Firm”) is investigating Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (“Synchronoss” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SNCR) and certain of its senior executive officers (together, the “Defendants”) for violations of the federal securities laws. A class action lawsuit has been brought in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all persons who purchased Synchronoss securities between May 5, 2016 and April 27, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
Founded in December 2000, Synchronoss is a publicly traded company located in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The Company provides cloud solutions and software-based activation for connected devices worldwide. Its stock trades on the NASDAQ under the symbol SNCR.
The complaint alleges that Synchronoss, and certain of its senior executive officers, made a series of materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects to investors during the Class Period. Specifically, the Defendants are alleged to have misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that (i) Synchronoss would not be able to meet revenue guidance previously provided to investors; and (ii) as such, Synchronoss would need to revise its prior guidance. As a result of the foregoing, the Defendants’ Class Period statements were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
On April 27, 2017, the Company announced that it “expect[ed] total revenue for the first quarter of 2017 to be $13 million to $14 million less than the [C]ompany’s previously announced guidance” and “[o]perating margins … to be 8% to 10%,” “less than previously announced guidance.” “In view of the Company’s performance in the first quarter,” Synchronoss stated that it expected the results to “impact [its] full year guidance.” The Company also disclosed that its Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) would each be “leaving to pursue other interests.” Both the CEO and CFO had recently been hired by the Company – the CEO was hired in December 2016 and the CFO was hired in February 2017.
The market reacted harshly to these disclosures. Following the news, shares of Synchronoss’ stock declined $11.33 per share, or more than 46 percent, to close on April 27, 2017, at $13.29 per share, on heavy trading.
