According to the filed complaint, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
· Pivotal was facing major problems with its sales execution and a complex technology landscape;
· the foregoing headwinds resulted in deferred sales, lengthening sales cycles, and diminished growth as its customers and the industry’s sentiment shifted away from Pivotal’s principal products because the Company’s products were outdated, inadequate, and incompatible with the industry-standard platform, and;
· Pivotal’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
In April 2018, Pivotal commenced its IPO, issuing over 42 million shares of Pivotal common stock to the investing public at $15.00 per share, all pursuant to the Registration Statement, raising more than $638 million in gross proceeds.
Post-market, on June 4, 2019, Pivotal reported its “First Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results,” advising, among other things, that “. . . sales execution and a complex technology landscape impacted the quarter.”
On this news, Pivotal’s stock price dropped $7.65 per share, or more than 40%, to close at $10.89 per share on June 5, 2019.
