SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP Has Filed a Class Action Lawsuit against Imperva, Inc. and Certain Officers
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP announced today that
it filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for
the Northern District of California on behalf of purchasers of Imperva,
Inc. (NYSE: IMPV) publicly traded securities between May 2, 2013 and
April 9, 2014 (the "Class Period"). Imperva develops, markets, sells,
services, and supports data center security solutions that protect high
value applications and data assets in physical and virtual data centers.
The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's
operations and business and its financial results. The complaint alleges
that, as a result of defendants' false statements, Imperva securities
traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period, with its
stock price reaching a high of $65.53 per share on March 6, 2014. The
complaint alleges that certain of the Company's officers and directors
were able to sell $25.9 million worth of their Imperva stock at inflated
prices, including $11.8 million worth of stock sold by the Chief
Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer.
On April 9, 2014, Imperva reduced its first quarterrevenue guidance to
$31.0M to $31.5M from its previous outlook of $34.0M to $35.0M. Prior to
the Company's warning, analysts' consensus revenue estimate was $36.5M
to $37.0M. Imperva stated that the lowered revenue guidance was impacted
primarily by extended sales cycles on deals over $100,000. As a result
of this news, Imperva's stock plummeted $21.73 per share to close at $28
per share on April 10, 2014, a one-day decline of nearly 44% on volume
of 10.9 million shares.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of
Imperva publicly traded securities during the Class Period.
