|Company name||Nutanix, Inc.|
|Class period||March 2, 2018 – February 28, 2019|
|Court||Northern District of California|
NEW YORK, April 1, 2019 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Nutanix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTNX) securities between March 2, 2018 and February 28, 2019 (NASDAQ: NTNX) securities between March 2, 2018 and February 28, 2019 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until May 28, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The complaint alleges that beginning on March 2, 2018, Nutanix and its senior executives made repeated statements that Nutanix was investing heavily in growth while maintaining high profit margins. On February 28, 2019, Nutanix announced its second quarter fiscal 2019 results and reported third quarter guidance that was below analysts’ expectations. Management acknowledged that “inadequate marketing spend for pipeline generation and slower than expected sales hiring” were the reasons for the weak guidance.
On this news, Nutanix’s stock price fell by more than 30%, closing at $33.70 on March 1, 2019. The complaint further alleges that Nutanix senior officers, including its Chief Revenue Officer, took advantage of these false statements by selling Nutanix common stock at inflated prices.
