Its solutions enable enterprises, service providers, Web giants, and government organizations to enhance, secure, and optimize the performance of their data center applications and networks.

The complaint alleges that the Registration Statement was negligently prepared and, as a result, contained untrue statements of material facts or omitted to state other facts necessary to make the statements made not misleading and was not prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations governing its preparation.

On November 26, 2013, A10 Networks filed with the SEC a Registration Statement on Form S-1, which would later be utilized for the IPO following several amendments in response to comments by the SEC. On March 21, 2014, the SEC declared the Registration Statement effective and A10 Networks and the underwriter defendants priced the IPO at $15 per share and filed the final Prospectus for the IPO, which forms part of the Registration Statement (collectively, the "Registration Statement"). The Company sold nine million shares in the IPO and certain "Selling Stockholders" sold another 3.845 million shares, including shares sold pursuant to the underwriters' overallotment.

October 8, 2014, the Company announced third quarter revenue of approximately $43.0 million to $43.5 million, below the company's prior guidance of $48.0 million to $50.0 million. On this news, shares of A10 Networks fell $3.35, or 42%, to close at $4.55 on October 8, 2014.
