NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Hortonworks, Inc. ("Hortonworks" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: HDP). Such investors are advised to contact Peretz Bronstein or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz at or 212-697-6484.

This investigation concerns whether Hortonworks and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated the Federal Securities Laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"). 

On November 12, 2015, Hortonworks filed a 10-Q quarterly report with the SEC for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The report, in part, stated: "We believe that our existing cash and cash equivalents balance, together with cash generated from sales of our support subscriptions and professional services to customers, will be sufficient to meet our working capital and capital expenditure requirements for the next 12 months." Following this report, Hortonworks stock went up to $22.08 per share, roughly a 26% gain. 

On January 15, 2016, post-market, Hortonworks stated it had retained Goldman Sachs to raise $100 million in a secondary offering.  Analysts were surprised with this statement, as one was quoted, "We believe it will be incumbent on HDP during its roadshow to show why this offering, announced in this way, at this time, should not be interpreted as evidence of serious difficulty." Following this news, on January 19, 2016, the next trading day, Hortonworks stock fell $6.13, or nearly 37%, to close at just $10.44 per share.
