It is alleged that Defendants made false and misleading statements
during the Class Period regarding the Company’s readiness to supply the
market with fully developed and robust technologies and products.
Defendants’ false and misleading statements served to conceal the fact
that the Company faced serious difficulties with the deployment of its
switched digital video (“SDV”) technology, as well as the viability of
its cable modem termination (“CMTS”) business.
On September 28, 2007, the Company announced shocking news of the true
dimensions of its product development woes, which were frustrated by
the very customer technologies and hardware that the BigBand products
were purportedly designed to work with. The Company’s disastrous
financial performance knocked as much as $23 million off the revenue
guidance for the third quarter. On this news, shares of BigBand
Networks stock fell nearly $2.67 or 29 percent on volume of 6.8 million
shares to close on September 28, 2007 at $6.40 per share.
