NEW YORK, July 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Verint Systems Inc. (“Verint” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VRNT). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Verint and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On May 23, 2019, Spruce Point published a report asserting that Verint “has fallen far behind [its] industry’s evolving technological standards and . . . is making up for slow growth with aggressive M&A and dubious accounting.” Among other issues, Spruce Point alleged that Verint’s “organic growth was in the low single digits in FY18 and negative in FY19, far below reported top-line growth in the high single digits”, and that Verint’s “subsequent sales growth characterized as organic was largely driven . . . acquisitions, and that its underreported inorganic sales contribution created a ‘cookie jar’ which Verint used to beat Q4 and raise FY20 guidance.”
On this news, Verint’s stock price fell $4.11, or 6.73% to $57.06, during intraday trading on May 23, 2019.
