On March 19, 2018, Micro Focus announced the resignation of its Chief
Executive Officer and disclosed that the Company was lowering its
constant currency revenue guidance for the twelve months ending October
31, 2018 to a range of minus 6% to minus 9% compared to the 12 months
ending October 31, 2017. On this news, Micro Focus' share price fell
nearly 50% on March 19, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that the Company made
false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business,
operational and compliance policies. Specifically, the complaint alleges
that the Company failed to disclose that HPE was experiencing
significant and global customer account disruptions due to its de-merger
with Hewlett Packard. HPE and Micro Focus were also suffering from
employee attrition, which negatively impacted Micro Focus's revenue
trend and operational abilities. Micro Focus's revenue trends were
worsening and on pace to miss expectations in the market for its interim
results reported for the six months ending on October 31, 2017. The
Company was also suffering from sales execution problems in North
America. HPE did not have key assets like a loyal customer base, key
personnel, or operational capabilities to justify its purchase price.
Micro Focus failed to put in place the necessary operations, staff, and
plan to effectively integrate with HPE in order to increase the chances
of enjoying a positive synergy between the two organizations. According
to the complaint, the total enterprise value of the merger was allegedly
inflated by more $3.4 billion. As a result, Micro Focus' public
statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
