LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased or otherwise acquired securities of Aerohive Networks, Inc. (“Aerohive” or the “Company”) (NYSE: HIVE) securities between November 1, 2017 and January 16, 2018, , inclusive (the “Class Period”). Aerohive investors have until March 20, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
To obtain information or actively participate in the class action, please visit the Aerohive page on our website at www.glancylaw.com/case/aerohive-networks-inc. Investors that suffered losses on their Aerohive investments are encouraged to contact Lesley Portnoy of GPM to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 310-201-9150 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On November 1, 2017, Aerohive’s CFO, John Ritchie, stated that the Company was expecting Q4 revenue in the range of $40 million to $42 million, and that Aerohive realized “significant sales efficiency” with non-GAAP sales and marketing costs.
Then, on January 16, 2018, Aerohive announced that it expected net revenue of only $37 million for Q4 due to “underlying sales execution issues.” On this news, Aerohive’s share price fell $1.63 per share or more than 29%, to close at $4.07 on January 17, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) there were underlying sales execution issues that were uncovered at the end of the third quarter of 2017; (2) consequently, Aerohive's revenue guidance for the fourth quarter of 2017 was overstated; and (3) as a result, defendants' public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
