Check out the companies making headlines after the bell Tuesday:

Verint Systems' stock tumbled in extended trading after announcing quarterly earnings far below Wall Street's estimates. Its security intelligence unit underperformed.

The enterprise security firm reported earnings of 90 cents per share, excluding certain items, on sales of $282 million, below the $1.17 per share on revenues of $318 million that Thomson Reuters consensus estimates predicted. But CEO Dan Bodner says the company's headwinds in emerging markets are expected to be temporary.

Fast-food chain Sonic saw shares bounce after the bell when the drive-in diner reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings. The burger joint reported earnings of 18 cents per share, adjusted, above the 16 cents predicted by analysts, the Associated Press reported.

Restoration Hardware shares whipsawed after hours after the company reported lower-than-expected quarterly earnings. The upscale furnishing company earned 98 cents per share, ex-items, narrowly missing estimates of 99 cents per share.

The retailer's shares are down more than 50 percent so far this year; it slashed preliminary earnings estimates in February.

Chesapeake Energy shares briefly dipped after a filing showed CEO Robert Lawler got a pay raise in 2015. Lawler's compensation totaled $15.4 million in 2015, up from $14.7 million in 2014, the filing showed. Shares of the natural gas producer are down more than 70 percent over the past year as it recovers from a Justice Department investigation and the sudden death of its former CEO, Aubrey McClendon.

Shares of GameStop sank after it trimmed forward guidance Monday. The game retailer posted higher-than-predicted earnings Monday but has been shifting into more diversified businesses including collectibles and mobile, an executive told CNBC's "Squawk Box" Monday.
