NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Illumina, Inc. ("Illumina" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ILMN). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Illumina and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On October 10, 2016, Illumina issued a press release entitled "Illumina Announces Preliminary Revenue for Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2016." In the press release, the Company announced estimated third quarter revenue of approximately $607 million, which was lower than the Company's third quarter revenue guidance in the range of $625 million to $630 million. The Company attributed the shortfall to "larger than anticipated year-over-year decline in high throughput sequencing instruments." Illumina concurrently announced that it expected fourth quarter revenue to be flat to slightly up sequentially.
On this news, Illumina's share price fell $45.86, or 24.8%, to close at $138.99 on October 11, 2016.
