The U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts certified a class of investors in a securities fraud case pending against Carbonite, a software company now owned by OpenText. The action alleges that Carbonite and several of its senior executives falsely touted a “super strong” and “extremely competitive” data backup product in public presentations and investor conference calls between October 2018 and July 2019. Plaintiff alleges that the product never worked as intended. Carbonite eventually withdrew the product from the market on July 25, 2019.  The next day, Carbonite’s stock price fell more than 24%.
