LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Law Offices of Todd M. Garber announces that all purchasers of the securities of Avid Technology, Inc. ("Avid" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:AVID) between April 22, 2011 and February 22, 2013, inclusive (the "Class Period") have until May 24, 2013 to file a motion with the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the shareholder lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements or failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations and prospects.

If you are a member of the above-described Class, you may move the Court no later than May 24, 2013 to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time. You may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent Class member.
