This action is brought on behalf of all purchasers of the securities of Tangoe, Inc. ("Tangoe" or the "Company") during the Class Period.
Tangoe develops and markets computer software that helps companies manage and control their fixed and mobile communications assets and costs.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants conducted a scheme to inflate their share price through a series of acquisitions, and made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company was overstating organic growth by underreporting the percentage of revenue derived from recent acquisitions; (ii) the Company was not growing customers organically as its deferred implementation fees failed to grow; and (iii) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 28, 2012, thestreetsweeper.org published a report that described the Company as possessing a "risky acquisition-driven growth strategy." Upon this news, Tangoe shares declined $3.39 per share, or almost 17%, to close at $16.70 per share on August 28, 2012.
On September 6, 2012, Copperfield Research published a report which concluded that the Company had materially misrepresented its organic growth rate. On this news, Tangoe shares declined $1.03 per share, or 6% on September 6, 2012. The stock continued to fall an additional $1.68 per share or 10.5%, to close at $14.29 per share on September 7, 2012.
