("Mellanox" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MLNX) between April 19, 2012 and January 2, 2013, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint charges Yum and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Mellanox is a fabless semiconductor company that produces and supplies high-performance interconnect products that facilitate efficient data transmission between servers, storage systems and communications infrastructure equipment and other embedded systems.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company's business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that: (a) Mellanox was receiving a continuous stream of customer complaints concerning glitches it its InfiniBand product offerings during the Class Period; (b) Mellanox knew that the pace of Intel Corporation's ("Intel") development of its own competing InfiniBand adaptor would both diminish Intel's demand for Mellanox's product offering and detrimentally increase competition in the InfiniBand market in which Mellanox enjoyed a near monopoly; (c) Mellanox knew that its outsized 1Q and 2Q sales growth were not sustainable and were not the result of Defendants' business acumen, growth in the InfiniBand market generally, or significant adoption by the market of Mellanox's own InfiniBand product offerings, but was instead due to short-term sales boosts attributable to Intel's rollout of the Romley CPU upgrade; (d) Mellanox's inventory was dramatically increasing, both at the Company and in the hands of at least one significant OEM customer, which would decrease sales and profit margins going forward; and (e) as a result, Mellanox knew its actual sales growth supported neither its own 4Q 2012 guidance nor the inflated share price targets the investment community was modeling based on Defendants' bullish Class Period statements and guidance. As a result of defendants' false and misleading statements, the Company's stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
On January 2, 2013 the Company announced it will be lowering the Company's fourth quarter 2012 revenue guidance. Citing "a weaker demand environment, challenging macroeconomic conditions, and a technical issue associated with FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand cabling which caused approximately $20 million of FDR deployments to be delayed" the Company revised its fourth quarter financial outlook to a range of $119 million to $121 million, sharply below the Company's previous guidance of $145 million to $150 million.
If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than April 8, 2013, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as "lead plaintiff." Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Ryan & Maniskas, LLP or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
