INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of Lantronix, Inc. (LTRX) Investors


Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Lantronix, Inc. ("Lantronix" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: LTRX) securities between May 11, 2023 and February 8, 2024, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Lantronix investors have until April 23, 2024 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their Lantronix investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to [email protected].

On February 8, 2024, Lantronix released its second quarter 2024 financial results and lowered its full-year 2024 guidance by approximately $10 million. The Company attributed the revision to "lower expected sales" as a result of "a general slowdown in [the Company's] broad-based channel business as customers work through their inventories," and certain revenues slated for the second half of fical 2024 being pushed into 2025.



On this news, Lantronix's stock price fell $1.89, or 32.5%, to close at $3.92 per share on February 9, 2024, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Lantronix overstated demand and/or its visibility into demand for its IoT products; (2) Lantronix's customers were reducing elevated levels of inventory of IoT products, thereby causing a general slowdown in the Company's business; (3) certain of Lantronix's embedded IOT revenues expected from a customer design win were delayed to the next fiscal year; (4) as a result of all the foregoing, Lantronix anticipated lower sales for its embedded IOT solutions for fiscal year 2024; (5) accordingly, Lantronix was unlikely to meet its own previously issued guidance for fiscal year 2024; and (6) as a result, Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.


If you purchased Lantronix securities, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
