PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Berger Montague's ongoing investigation into potential securities fraud claims against Splunk, Inc.

Recently filed lawsuits accuse Splunk and members of its senior management of falsely portraying the Company's financial performance, including its business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, according to the complaints, Defendants failed to disclose that Splunk was not closing deals with its largest customers in the third fiscal quarter of 2021, and that Splunk was not hitting the financial targets it had previously announced.

On December 2, 2020, Splunk announced its third quarter 2021 financial results, and in a startling reversal from the optimistic portrayal of the Company only five weeks earlier, Splunk reported that total revenue had declined by 11% year-over-year and that earnings-per-share had missed analyst estimates by a wide margin. Analysts at JPMorgan immediately wrote that they were "blindsided by the magnitude of too many large deals slipping in the final days of October."

If you purchased Splunk securities during the Class Period, you may seek Court appointment as lead plaintiff to represent other injured investors in a class action. The lead plaintiff appointment deadline is February 2, 2021. You do not need to be a lead plaintiff to share in any potential Class recovery.
