Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC Announces the Investigation of Covisint Corporation

WASHINGTON --(Business Wire)--

Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC is conducting an investigation to determine whether Covisint Corporation ("Covisint" or the "Company") and certain of its officers, directors and underwriters violated the Securities Act of 1933.

A class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by another law firm on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Covisint Corporation (NASDAQ: COVS) pursuant or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with Covisint's September 26, 2013 Initial public stock offering ("IPO").

The complaint alleges that the offering documents misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Covisint was experiencing a greater than expected decline in its subscription revenue due to poor sales execution and late-stage pipeline conversion issues; (2) the Company was facing increased competition in its services segment and customers were not adding services at a rate consistent with expectations; (3) Covisint was experiencing a decline in General Motors (News - Alert)-related service revenue; (4) the Company was losing healthcare customers at an increasing rate, and its pipeline of healthcare-related deals was steadily declining and included numerous deals that were not likely to be consummated; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, there was no reasonable basis to "expect" revenues for fiscal year 2014 to increase by 20% compared to 2013.

Soon after Covisint's IPO, the Company sharply lowered its revenue growth forecasts for its 2014 fiscal year. By March of 2014, defendants acknowledged that they had been aware prior to the IPO that certain of Covisint's ey customers either had or would be ending their agreements with the Company. All three underwriters of Covisint's IPO have either downgraded Covisint or significantly lowered their price target on the shares.


Cohen Milstein encourages all investors who purchased Covisint common stock pursuant or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with Covisint's September 26, 2013 IPO, or former employees with information concerning this matter to contact the firm.
