issued materially false and misleading statements about its financial
condition prior to and following its formation in early 2007 through
the date of the merger of Stratex Networks, Inc. and the Harris
Microwave Communications Division.

On July 30, 2008, the Company announced that it had discovered

statements to be incorrect. According to the announcement, the Company
