NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2018 — Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAOI) securities between August 7, 2018 and September 27, 2018 (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The case is indexed under 18-cv-03914. Investors have until November 30, 2018 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The Complaint 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 certain of the company’s lasers were susceptible to fail prematurely; (2) that certain of the company’s transceivers utilizing these lasers would be materially affected; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendant’s positive statements about the company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
