DZS Inc. (NASDAQ: DZSI) Securities Fraud Class Action:

The litigation focuses on the propriety of DZS's accounting and the effectiveness of its internal controls over financial reporting.

More specifically, on May 8, 2023, DZS announced its financial results for its quarter ended March 31, 2023 that included Q1 2023 revenue of $91 million, an 18% increase year-over-year and within the guidance range of $90 - $100 million.

The complaint alleges that Defendants made material misstatements and failed to disclose that: (1) DZS's financial statements for its quarter ended March 31, 2023 contained material errors; (2) as a result, the company would need to restate its previously filed financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2023; and (3) the company had ongoing undisclosed issues with its internal controls over financial reporting.

Investors learned the truth on June 1, 2023, when DZS announced that it would restate its financial results for its fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2023. The company admitted that it improperly recognized approximately $15 million of revenue during the quarter. The company further revealed that "[t]he restatement relates to the timing of revenue recognition with respect to two customer projects" and "'[t]he most significant of the two revenue restatements is with a long-standing, highly valued customer.'" The improperly recognized revenue equates to an approximate 19% overstatement during Q1 2023, without which DZS would have fallen well short of the guidance range.

In addition, DZS withdrew its Q2 2023 guidance issued on May 8, 2023.

This news drove the price of DZS shares crashing lower on June 1, 2023.

"We're focused on investors' losses and proving DZS intentionally cooked its books," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
