SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman reminds investors in Sonim Technologies Inc. SONM of the federal securities class action recently filed against the company and urges SONM investors who have suffered losses in excess of $25,000 to contact the firm.
SONIM Class Action:
On May 10, 2019, Sonim conducted its IPO, selling over 3.5 million shares of stock individually priced at $11.00. Integral to the IPO's success was the company's Registration Statement, which made positive statements concerning the features and functionality of Sonim's mobile phones and accessories. Thereafter, Sonim made similar representations about its mobile phone devices and its stock steadily climbed, trading over $18 in June 2019.
According to the Complaint, contrary to Sonim's hyping of its mobile phones' reliability and superior software configurations and performance, Sonim was experiencing severe software and technical challenges with its flagship smartphone, the XP8, as well as its XP5 and XP3 models.
The truth emerged on September 10, 2019, when Sonim's management disclosed that "the company has experienced technical challenges related to its [flagship] XP8 smartphone . . ., which cumulatively resulted in lost sales momentum." The company also lowered guidance and also announced the abrupt resignation of CFO Jim Walker. On this news, the price of SONM shares plummeted $3.30, or 47%, in a single trading day.
On October 7, 2019, a federal securities class action was filed on behalf of all Sonim investors that purchased shares in the May 2019 IPO, and alleges claims under the Securities Act of 1933.
Hagens Berman, however, is also investigating whether Sonim and its senior officials engaged in a more expansive securities fraud giving rise to additional claims under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
If you invested in Sonim between May 10, 2019 and Oct. 7, 2019 and suffered significant losses ($25,000+), you may qualify to be a lead plaintiff – one who selects and oversees the attorneys prosecuting the case. Contact Hagens Berman immediately to learn more about the case and being a lead plaintiff.
"We're focused on investors' losses and whether senior management concealed problems with Sonim's XP8 smartphones and other devices," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
