NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated (“Diebold” or the “Company”) (NYSE: DBD) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court, for the Southern District of New York, and indexed under 19-cv-06180, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants who purchased or otherwise acquired publicly traded Diebold securities between May 4, 2017 and July 4, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, against the Company and certain of its top officials.
If you are a shareholder who purchased Diebold securities during the class period, you have until September 3, 2019, to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.

Diebold provides connected commerce services, software and technology to enable millions of transactions each day. The Company’s approximately 25,000 employees purportedly design and deliver convenient, “always on” and highly secure solutions that bridge the physical and the digital worlds of transactions. Customers of the Company include nearly all of the world’s top 100 financial institutions and a majority of the top twenty-five global retailers.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company was experiencing delays in systems rollouts as well as a longer customer decision-making process and order-to-revenue conversion cycle; (ii) the foregoing issues were negatively impacting the Company’s services business and operations; and (iii) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On July 5, 2017, Diebold issued a press release titled “Diebold Nixdorf Adjusts 2017 Financial Outlook” (the “July 2017 Press Release”). The July 2017 Press Release disclosed that the Company expected a wider net loss than indicated in its prior guidance for fiscal 2017, from a range of $50 to $75 million to a range of $110 to $125 million net loss.
Diebold attributed the lowered expectations to a delay in systems rollouts as well as a longer customer decision-making process and order-to-revenue conversion cycle.
Following this news, Diebold’s stock price fell $6.40 per share, or nearly 23%, to close at $21.60 per share on July 5, 2017.
