Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockleviton.com), a national securities litigation firm, reminds investors that it has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of shareholders against Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK) and certain of its executives for securities fraud. Investors who purchased SPLK shares between August 26, 2020 and December 2, 2020 and who lost money are strongly encouraged to contact Block & Leviton attorneys at (617) 398-5600, via email at email@example.com, or at https://www.blockleviton.com/cases/splunk. The lead plaintiff deadline is February 2, 2021.
After the markets closed on December 2, 2020, Splunk stunned the market when it announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2021. These results fell short of annual recurring and total revenue estimates, and Splunk reported a loss of 7 cents per share versus an expected gain of 8 cents per share. Splunk's forecast for the fourth quarter of 2020 was also lower than expected. Numerous analysts have already downgraded the stock and cut their price targets. This includes JPMorgan, who was "blindsided by the magnitude of too many large deals slipping in the final days of October on the heels of an upbeat analyst day 10 days prior to the quarter close," on October 21, 2020, "at which the company reaffirmed guidance and stated that it was excited about near-term and long-term growth prospects." Shares fell over 23% in one trading day from their December 2, 2020 closing price, representing billions of dollars in lost market capitalization.
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, located at 1301 Clay Street, Oakland, CA 94612. The case is captioned Pavlova-Coleman v. Splunk Inc., et al., No. 3:20-cv-8600 (N.D. Cal.), and has been assigned to the Honorable Jon S. Tigar. The lawsuit filed by Block & Leviton LLP alleges a class period of October 21, 2020 to December 2, 2020. A second lawsuit has been filed in the same court, Guirguis v. Splunk Inc. et al., No. 4:21-cv-00164 (N.D. Cal.), which begins the class period on August 26, 2020.
