Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that it is investigating
potential claims against Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. ("Mellanox" or the
"Company") (NASDAQ:MLNX) concerning possible violations of federal
securities laws. The investigation focuses on allegations that certain
statements issued by Mellanox between April 19, 2012 and January 2, 2013
were false and misleading concerning the Company's financial performance
and prospects. Mellanox produces and supplies high-performance
interconnect products that facilitate efficient data transmission
between servers, storage systems and communications infrastructure
equipment and other embedded systems.
The investigation is related to Mellanox's January 2, 2013 announcement
lowering the Company's fourth quarter 2012 revenue guidance. Citing "a
weaker demand environment, challenging macroeconomic conditions, and a
technical issue associated with FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand cabling which
caused approximately $20 million of FDR deployments to be delayed" the
Company revised its fourth quarter financial outlook to a range of $119
million to $121 million, sharply below the Company's previous guidance
of $145 million to $150 million.
As a result of this news, the Company's stock price dropped more than
17%, or $10.46 per share, to a closing price of $50.70 per share on
January 3, 2013 on heavy volume of more than 8.2 million shares traded.
