Notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all securities purchasers of Symbol Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: SBL – News; “Symbol” or the “Company”) between May 10, 2004 and August 1, 2005 inclusive (the “Class Period”).
If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Schiffrin & Barroway, LLP (Darren J. Check, Esq. or Richard A. Maniskas, Esq.) toll free at 1-888-299-7706 or 1-610-667-7706, or via e-mail at [email protected]
The complaint charges Symbol, William R. Nuti and Mark T. Greenquist with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. More specifically, the Complaint alleges that the Company failed to disclose and misrepresented the following material adverse facts which were known to defendants or recklessly disregarded by them: (1) that the demand for the Company’s products was weak; (2) that the Company’s operations were inefficient due to high operating costs exacerbated by excess workforce, unnecessary capacity and obsolete assets; (3) that the Company had inadequate internal controls; and (4) that as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s earnings projections lacked in all reasonable basis when made.
On August 1, 2005, Symbol released its poor financial results for the second quarter of 2005. On this news, shares of Symbol fell $1.79 per share, or 15.38 percent, on August 1, 2005, to close at $9.85 per share.

If you are a member of the class described above, you may, not later than October 17, 2005 move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff of the class, if you so choose. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as “lead plaintiff.” Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Schiffrin & Barroway, or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
