RM LAW, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased Aerohive Networks, Inc. (NYSE: HIVE) (“Aerohive” or the “Company”) securities between November 1, 2017, and January 16, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
Aerohive shareholders may, no later than March 20, 2018, move the Court for appointment as a lead plaintiff of the Class.

Aerohive supplies wireless infrastructure equipment. The Company designs cooperative control wireless architecture, cloud-enabled network management, routing, and virtual private network solutions. Aerohive serves the healthcare, education, manufacturing, distribution, and retail industries throughout the United States.
The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants 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) Aerohive had uncovered sales execution issues at the Company at the end of the third quarter of 2017; (ii) consequently, Aerohive’s revenue guidance for the fourth quarter of 2017 was overstated; and (iii) as a result, Aerohive’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On January 16, 2018, post-market, Aerohive issued a press release entitled, “Aerohive Networks Announces Preliminary Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Results,” revealing that it “expects net revenue for the fourth quarter to be approximately $37 million, which is below the Company’s previously stated guidance of $40 million to $42 million.” Aerohive attributed the reduced guidance to “underlying sales execution issues” uncovered at the end of the third quarter.
On this news, Aerohive’s share price fell $1.63, or 28.6%, to close at $4.07 on January 17, 2018.
If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than March 20, 2018, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as “lead plaintiff.” Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain RM LAW, P.C. or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
