BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Marvell Technology Group, Ltd. (“Marvell” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: MRVL) between November 20, 2014 and September 10, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Marvell investors have until November 10, 2015 to file a lead plaintiff motion. Investors who suffered losses on their investment in Marvell securities are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action.
On September 11, 2015, the Company reported a quarterly loss of $382.4 million for its fiscal second quarter, whereas analysts on average had predicted a quarterly profit of $11.9 million. The Company also announced an internal probe by its Audit Committee into Marvell’s accounting practices including its revenue recognition, litigation reserves, and internal controls. On this news shares of Marvell fell $1.71 per share, or nearly 17%, to close on September 11, 2015 at $8.84 per share, on unusually high volume.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Marvell had engaged in inappropriate revenue recognition practices; (2) the Company’s management permitted an inappropriate and ineffective control environment; (3) as a result, Marvell’s key accounting metrics were misstated; (4) that the Company lacked adequate controls at all relevant times; (5) and as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Marvell’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
If you purchased shares of Marvell during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than November 10, 2015 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
