The Complaint charges Velti and certain of the Company's executive officers with violations of the federal securities laws, alleging that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about Velti's reported financial results to investors. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company was having difficulty collecting certain receivables; (2) certain of the Company's receivables were uncollectible; (3) as a result, the Company's revenues and receivables were overstated during the Class Period; (4) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (5), as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements and reported financial results were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 20, 2013, the Company reported its 2013 fiscal second quarter financial results and disclosed that the Company had made the decision to write-down approximately $111 million to its trade receivables and accrued contract receivables relating to its enterprise business. Moreover, the Company announced a "major restructuring" of its business. On this news, shares of Velti declined $0.66 per share, more than 66%, to close on August 21, 2013, at $0.34 per share, on heavy trading volume.
