BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Avaya Holdings Corp. (“Avaya” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AVYA) investors concerning the Company’s possible violations of federal securities laws.
On August 9, 2022, Avaya released its preliminary third quarter 2022 financial results, reporting sales of $577 million, down 20% year-over-year in constant currency. The Company provided no explanation for the earnings miss, but disclosed that there is “substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.” The Company also announced that its audit committee is investigating a whistleblower letter and its recent earnings report. As an article by The Wall Street Journal pointed out, Avaya missed earnings and cut its earnings forecast by 60% just weeks after borrowing $600 million from institutional investors in June.
On this news, Avaya’s stock fell $0.51, or 45.5%, to close at $0.61 per share on August 9, 2022, thereby injuring investors.
