Faruqi & Faruqi is a leading minority and Woman-owned national securities law firm with offices in New York, Pennsylvania, California and Georgia.

According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose, among other things, that: (1) DZS' financial statements from March 31, 2023 to the present contained certain errors; (2) as a result, DZS would need to restate its previously filed quarterly financial statement for the period ending March 31, 2023; (3) the Company had ongoing undisclosed issues with its internal controls over financial reporting; and (4) as a result, Defendants' statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

On May 8, 2023, DZS announced its financial results for Q1 2023 that included Q1 revenue of $91 million, an 18% increase year-over-year and within the guidance range of $90 - $100 million.

But, on June 1, 2023, DZS announced that it would restate its financial results for its fiscal quarter ended Mar. 31, 2023. The company admitted that it improperly recognized approximately $15 million of revenue during the quarter. The company further revealed that "[t]he restatement relates to the timing of revenue recognition with respect to two customer projects" and "'[t]he most significant of the two revenue restatements is with a long-standing, highly valued customer.'" The improperly recognized revenue equates to an approximate 19% overstatement during Q1 2023, without which DZS would have fallen well short of the guidance range.

In addition, DZS withdrew its Q2 2023 guidance issued on May 8, 2023.

This news drove the price of DZS shares crashing lower on June 1, 2023.
