(NASDAQ GS: OSPN)
Attention investors who purchased shares of OneSpan Inc. between May 9, 2018 and August 11, 2020:
Rigrodsky & Long is investigating claims brought in a securities fraud class action complaint against OneSpan Inc. ("OneSpan" or the "Company") concerning whether OneSpan and certain of the Company's directors and/or officers made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose materially adverse facts during the period of May 9, 2018 and August 11, 2020, inclusive (the "Class Period"), concerning OneSpan's business, operations, and prospects. These misrepresentations and omissions artificially inflated the price of OneSpan's shares throughout the Class Period.
Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of OneSpan Inc. (“OneSpan” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: OSPN) between May 9, 2018 and August 11, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).
If you purchased shares of OneSpan during the Class Period, or purchased shares prior to the Class Period and still hold OneSpan, and wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact Seth D. Rigrodsky or Timothy J. MacFall at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 300 Delaware Avenue, Suite 210, Wilmington, DE 19801, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, by e-mail at email@example.com.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants concealed from the investing public that: (i) OneSpan had inadequate disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting; (ii) as a result, OneSpan overstated its revenue relating to certain contracts with customers involving software licenses in its financial statements spread out over the quarters from the first quarter of 2018 to the first quarter of 2020; (iii) as a result, it was foreseeably likely that the Company would eventually have to delay one or more scheduled earnings releases, conference calls, and/or financial filings with the SEC; (iv) OneSpan downplayed the negative impacts of errors in its financial statements; (v) all the foregoing, once revealed, was foreseeably likely to have a material negative impact on the Company’s financial results and reputation; and (vi) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
According to the Complaint, on August 4, 2020, during pre-market hours, OneSpan postponed its second quarter 2020 earnings release and conference call by one week, attributing the delay to prior period revenue recognition problems relating to certain software license contracts spread out over the quarters from the first quarter of 2018 to the first quarter of 2020. OneSpan further stated that “[t]he net contract assets that originated from a portion of these contracts in prior periods were not properly accounted for in subsequent periods, which caused overstatements of revenue.”
Then on August 11, 2020, during after-market hours, OneSpan disclosed that it would not timely file its quarterly report for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, with the SEC; reported that same quarter year-over-year revenues had declined; and withdrew its full year 2020 earnings guidance, which the Company had affirmed one quarter earlier.
On this news, shares of OneSpan fell almost 40%, closing at $18.84 per share on August 12, 2020, on heavy trading volume.
