NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation ("Cognizant" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CTSH) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Cognizant securities from February 25, 2016 through September 30, 2016, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period").
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
On September 30, 2016, pre-market, Cognizant revealed that it "is conducting an internal investigation into whether certain payments relating to facilities in India were made improperly and in possible violation of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other applicable laws." Simultaneously, the Company also announced its President, Gordon Coburn's resignation. Following this news, Cognizant stock has dropped as much as $9.43 per share, or 17.15%, to $45.57 during intraday trading on September 30, 2016.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Cognizant lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; (2) some inappropriate expenses for permits and building licenses for some of its 12 facilities in India; and (3) consequently, defendants' statements about Cognizant's business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
