Deadline Alert: The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Ribbon Communications, Inc.

November 16, 2018

BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 16, 2018--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the January 7, 2019  deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased Sonus Networks, Inc. (“Sonus” or the “Company”) (now known as Ribbon Communications, Inc.) (NASDAQ: RBBN ) securities between  January 8, 2015 and March 24, 2015,  inclusive (the “Class Period”).

Investors suffering losses on their Sonus investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that Defendants knew that the Company would fall materially short of its $74 million revenue forecast. Defendants knew that the unrealistic revenue and profitability forecasts remained aspirational and largely unreachable, a fact that senior sales personnel regularly communicated to Defendants. Defendants also knew that a number of 2015 sales had been “pulled forward” to buoy sales numbers in Q4 2014, at management’s express direction, and that the “backlog” of sales expected to be recognized in early 2015 was significantly lower than usual. And, upon disclosure of the Company’s poor results, the Company’s share price fell significantly in value-thereby injuring investors.

If you purchased shares of Sonus during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than  January 7, 2019  to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to  howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com, or visit our website at  http://www.howardsmithlaw.com.
