Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of VMware, Inc. (VMW) Investors

Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP ("GPM"), a national investors rights law firm, announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased VMware, Inc. ("VMware" or the "Company") (NYSE: VMW) securities between March 30, 2019 and February 27, 2020, inclusive (the "Class Period"). VMware investors have until June 1, 2020 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

If you suffered a loss on your VMware investments or would like to inquire about potentially pursuing claims to recover your loss under the federal securities laws, you can submit your contact information here or contact Charles H. Linehan, of GPM at 310-201-9150, Toll-Free at 888-773-9224, via email shareholders@glancylaw.com or visit our website at www.glancylaw.com to learn more about your rights.

On February 27, 2020, VMware announced that the Enforcement Division of the Securities and Exchange Commission "requested documents and information related to VMware’s backlog and associated accounting and disclosures."

On this news, VMware’s share price fell $15.11, or more than 11%, to close at $120.52 per share on February 28, 2020, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that VMware’s reporting with respect to its backlog of unfilled orders was not in compliance with all relevant accounting and disclosure requirements; (2) that the foregoing subjected the Company to a foreseeable risk of heightened regulatory scrutiny and/or investigation; and (3) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you purchased VMware securities during the Class Period, you may move the Court no later than June 1, 2020 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Charles Linehan, Esquire, of GPM, 1925 Century Park East, Suite 2100, Los Angeles California 90067 at 310-201-9150, Toll-Free at 888-773-9224, by email to shareholders@glancylaw.com, or visit our website at www.glancylaw.com.
