The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Tufin securities pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's Registration Statement issued in connection with the Company's April 2019 IPO. The case, William J. Allen v. Tufin Software Technologies Ltd. et al., No. 2:20-cv-03188 was filed on April 6, 2020, and has been assigned to Judge Fernando M. Olguin.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Tufin's customer relationships and growth metrics were overstated, particularly with respect to North America; (2) Tufin's business was deteriorating, primarily in North America; (3) as a result, Tufin's representations regarding its sustainable financial prospects were overly optimistic; and (4) as a result, the Offering Documents were materially false and/or misleading and failed to state information required to be stated therein. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
On January 9, 2020, Tufin announced preliminary unaudited revenue and non-GAAP operating loss estimates for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2019. Tufin announced that it expected to report total revenue in the range of $29.5 million to $30.1 million, compared to its previous guidance of total revenue in the range of $34.0 million to $38.0 million, and that Tufin anticipated non-GAAP operating loss in the range of $1.1 million to $2.6 million, compared to the Company's previous guidance of non-GAAP operating profit in the range of $0.0 million to $3.0 million.
On this news, the Company's stock price fell from $17.22 per share on January 8, 2020 to $13.08 per share on January 9, 2020: a $4.14 or 24.04% drop.
