The Company may have been inappropriately recognizing revenue from customers in the Middle East and Africa.  On February 20, 2013, the Company announced a new revenue recognition policy related to overseas revenues.  Under this new revenue recognition policy, a number of shipments during the first quarter of 2013 failed to meet revenue recognition requirements.

On the news of the new policy, Company stock dropped from $31.89 at close on February 20, 2013 to $18.24 per share at close on February 21, 2013.      

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
