Tableau Accused of Downplaying Competitive Threats

Purchasers of Tableau filed a securities class action complaint against
the company's officers and directors for alleged violations of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 between February 5, 2015 and February 4,
2016. According to the complaint, Tableau officials knew that large
technology companies had or would introduce software products that
directly competed with Tableau's products and which were causing
Tableau's customers to cancel pending license orders. Nonetheless,
Tableau officials continued to assure investors that competitive threats
had not changed, all while dumping hundreds of millions of dollars of
their personally-held Tableau common stock. On February 4, 2016, Tableau
revealed that it recorded a tax valuation allowance, indicating that the
company thought it was unlikely that Tableau would be able to generate
future income sufficient to realize its deferred tax assets. Tableau
further stated that it expected the company's 2016 first quarter revenue
growth rate to decline approximately 25% on a year-over-year basis,
finally signaling to the market the true adverse effect of Tableau's
competitors on the business. Tableau's stock has yet to recover to its
class period high of $114.87.
