In re Nimble Storage, Inc. Securities Litigation

Updated: March 01, 2017
Status: Ongoing Case

On March 28, 2016, Labaton Sucharow was appointed lead counsel in a securities class action against Nimble Storage, Inc. (Nimble), a provider of data storage solutions.

The lead plaintiff alleges that Nimble made material misrepresentations and omissions related to its investments in sales and marketing resources and the company’s sales of products to customers. Specifically, the company failed to inform investors that it had capped overall investments in sales and marketing and simultaneously embarked on a major shift of its sales and marketing spend to focus on large enterprise customers over their traditional smaller and medium-sized commercial customers. The market learned the truth about the defendants’ misrepresentations and omissions and the detrimental effect on the company of these new, undisclosed strategies in a series of corrective disclosures, which caused the company’s stock price to decrease and investors to suffer losses.  

The court heard oral argument on the defendants' motion to dismiss on November 8, 2016, and granted the motion with leave to amend on December 9, 2016. We filed a Second Amended Consolidated Complaint on January 20, 2017, and the defendants’ response was filed on February 17, 2017.

The case is In re Nimble Storage, Inc. Securities Litigation, No. 15-cv-05803 (N.D. Cal.). Labaton Sucharow represents lead plaintiff Arkansas Teachers Retirement System. The defendants are Nimble Storage, Inc. and four current senior executives, Suresh Vasudevan, Anup Singh Varun Mehta, and Dan Leary.

Nimble is a Delaware corporation headquartered in San Jose, California, which manufactures and sells hardware, software, and services in the data storage market. It was founded in 2007, and became a public company in December 2013.
