LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 4, 2019--

Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”), a national investors rights law firm, announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that acquired Zendesk, Inc. (“Zendesk” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ZEN ) securities between February 6, 2019 and October 1, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Zendesk investors have until December 23, 2019 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

On July 30, 2019, Zendesk reported net loss of $54.5 million for second quarter 2019 and disclosed that sales growth in Europe, Middle East, and Africa and Asia-Pacific regions “didn’t quite live up to [the Company’s] own expectations, and lagg[ed] other regions.” As a result, Zendesk expected ongoing revenue growth of just 30%.

On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $9.56, or over 10%, to close at $83.56 per share on July 31, 2019, thereby injuring investors.

Then, on October 2, 2019, the Company disclosed that a data breach impacted customers who had signed up before November 2016.

On this news, Zendesk share price dropped $2.90, or nearly 4%, closing at $69.81 on October 2, 2019, thereby injuring investors further.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that Zendesk’s clients had been subject to data breaches dating back to 2016; (2) that Zendesk was experiencing slowing demand for its Software as a Service offerings, particularly in Germany, the United Kingdom, and Australia, due in large part to political uncertainty and China trade issues there; and (3) that as a result of the foregoing, Zendesk’s business metrics and financial prospects were not as strong as defendants had led the market to believe during the Class Period.
