According to the Complaint, Palo Alto Networks is a multinational cybersecurity company that offers platforms for network and cloud security. 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 that: (1) the Company’s initiatives were not increasing its market share; (2) the Company would need to increase free product offerings so that customers would adopt more of the Company’s products; (3) the Company’s growth was unsustainable; and (4) new AI offerings were not facilitating greater platformization and consolidation.

After the market closed on February 20, 2024, Palo Alto Networks announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2024, and substantially lowered its billings and revenue guidance. In an earnings call on the same day, Defendant Arora explained that “our guidance is a consequence of us driving a shift in our strategy in wanting to accelerate both our platformization and consolidation and activating our AI leadership.”  Defendant Arora also revealed that several potential government deals did not close, resulting in “a significant shortfall in our U.S. federal government business.”

On this news, Palo Alto Networks’ stock price fell $104.12, or over 28%, to close at $261.97 per share on February 21, 2024.
