On or around 10/22/2020 (Court's order of dismissal)
Filing Date: August 01, 2019
According to the Complaint, Carbonite is a software company that provides cloud-based backup services, including the Server Backup VM Edition for managed services providers (“MSPs”), which was designed to allow MSPs to protect their virtual data both locally and in their own cloud.
The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Defendants issued materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information regarding the technological quality of the Server Backup VM Edition and its potential to add “meaningfully” to Carbonite’s financial performance for fiscal 2019. Specifically, the Complaint alleges Defendants failed to disclose that: (i) Carbonite’s Server Backup VM Edition was of poor quality and technologically flawed; (ii) Carbonite was receiving poor reviews and complaints from customers about the Server Backup VM Edition; and (iii) the poor quality and technological flaws of the Server Backup VM Edition were acting as a “disruptive” factor throughout the Carbonite salesforce and keeping that sales organization from closing opportunistically on several larger deals during fiscal 2019.
On November 21, 2019, the Court issued an Order consolidating cases and appointing Lead Plaintiff and Counsel. Lead Plaintiff filed a consolidated amended Complaint on January 15, 2020. Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss the consolidated amended Complaint on March 10. On October 22, the Court issued an Order granting Defendants' Motion to Dismiss. The claims were dismissed with prejudice.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
