The complaint alleges that the Company made materially false and/or misleading statements and omitted materially adverse facts regarding the Company's business, operations, and prospects.

On January 8, 2014, the Company announced that the existence and/or value of millions of dollars of customer contracts had been falsified for the six quarters ended September 30, 2013. The Company referred to this falsification as the result of a rogue employee's attempt to reach sales quotas and attain additional compensation. The Company further disclosed that an internal investigation had estimated the value of the falsified contracts at approximately $5.8 and $9.4 million in 2012 and 2013, respectively.
