NEW YORK, Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a securities class action has been filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Mateo, against Ooma, Inc. ("Ooma" or the "Company") (NYSE: OOMA), and certain of its officers, on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Ooma securities in or traceable to the Company's July 17, 2015 initial public stock offering (the IPO).
Ooma is a consumer telecommunications company based in Palo Alto, California, that allows its users to make phone calls anywhere inside the United States or anywhere inside Canada with low monthly service fees.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: at the time of Ooma's IPO, the Company's Registration Statement concealed that: (i) certain outsized prior fiscal year sales to its largest outside reseller — who was emphasized in the Company's Offering Documents to be a very important Ooma partner — were not recurring or being replaced in the fiscal year leading into the IPO; (ii) the Company's customer churn rate — emphasized repeatedly throughout the Offering Documents as being at an industry low rate of 0.55% — had increased significantly as of the IPO as a result of customers having endured eight-hour service outages in April and May 2015; (iii) technological difficulties in the Company's lead generation business were causing leads to get lost in the Internet before reaching their intended targets, thus negatively impacting sales of that service and the Company's business; (iv) Ooma's subscription revenue growth and operating and pretax profit margins were both falling; and (v) all of these problems had caused the Company's subscription retention rate to plummet and net losses to double on a year-over-year basis, as of the IPO.
On July 17, 2015, Ooma effectively raised $65 million in its IPO, employing the fabricated and deceitful Offering Documents, and priced its stock at $13 per share. Ooma's stock has been trading at about half the IPO price and as of the filing of this Complaint, traded at around $6 per share, causing tens of millions of dollars in damages for shareholders.
