BALA CYNWYD, PA / ACCESSWIRE / October 14, 2019 / Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC reminds investors of the October 15, 2019 deadline to file to be a lead plaintiff regarding claims against NetApp, Inc. ("NetApp" or the "Company") (Nasdaq - NTAP - News) for possible breaches of Federal Securities law.
The Class Period commences on May 22, 2019, when NetApp announced fourth quarter and full year 2019 financial results.
According to the filed complaint, on August 1, 2019, NetApp reported preliminary first quarter 2020 net revenue between $1.22 and $1.23 billion, below previous guidance between $1.315 to $1.465 billion, and earnings per share between $0.30 and $0.35, below previous guidance between $0.56 and $0.64. Additionally, NetApp lowered its 2020 outlook and expected net revenue to decline between 5% and 10% year-over-year. Following this news, NetApp's share price fell as much as $11.67, or over 20%, to close at $46.04 per share on August 2, 2019.
The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) NetApp was unable to close large deals within the quarter and that the deals were pushed out to subsequent quarters or downsized; (2) as a result, NetApp's revenue would be materially impacted; (3) as a result, NetApp would lower its fiscal 2020 guidance; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, the defendants' positive statements about NetApp's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
