NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP announces that a federal securities class action class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts against that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Ribbon Communications, Inc. (f/k/a Sonus Networks, Inc.)

The filed Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

-- Sonus would fall materially short of its $74 million revenue forecast; -- defendants knew that unrealistic revenue and profitability forecasts remained aspirational and largely unreachable, a fact that senior sales personnel regularly communicated to defendants; -- a number of 2015 sales had been “pulled forward” to buoy sales numbers in Q4 2014, at management’s direction; -- the “backlog” of sales expected to be recognized in early 2015 was significantly lower than usual; and -- as a result, defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On March 24, 2015, Ribbon disclosed dismal results for the first quarter of 2015, including revenue of only $47-$50 million, approximately $24-$30 million lower than expected, and a $0.29-$0.34 loss in non-GAAP earnings-per-share, lower than the $0.03 gain forecasted.

On this news, the price of Ribbon’s shares plummeted $4.46 per share, from $13.16 to $8.70 per share, a loss of over 33%.
