NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of VeriFone Systems, Inc. ("VeriFone" or the "Company") (NYSE: PAY).  The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws.

On February 21, 2013, shares of VeriFone fell to $17.93, their lowest in nearly three years.  Deutsche Bank, in client note, said that the company had finally admitted it had failed to execute on its plan to move to a more subscriptions-based service model.  In addition the brokerage firm said that past acquisitions had masked what was happening at the company and that it had long been wary of VeriFone's "aggressive accounting recognition."  Deutsche alleged that the recent CFO retirement/resignation and the first-quarter revenue recognition requirements may suggest possible accounting red flags in prior quarters.  Andrew Jeffrey, a SunTrust Robinson Humphrey analyst said, "Management credibility has been lost." He added, "Market share losses are deeper and more persistent than we had previously believed." Other analysts rejected the Company's argument that it came from the weak economy when the global economy has had far less of an impact on VeriFone's competitors such as NCR Corp. or Micros Systems.
