Cauley Geller Bowman & Coates, LLP Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Emulex Corporation - EMLX

Little Rock, Arkansas, UNITED STATES

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., March 23, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- The Law Firm of Cauley Geller Bowman & Coates, LLP has filed a class action in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all individuals and institutional investors that purchased the common stock of Emulex Corporation ("Emulex" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:EMLX) between January 18, 2001 and February 9, 2001, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint charges Emulex and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Emulex is a designer, developer and supplier of a line of Fibre Channel host adapters, hubs, ASICs and software products that provide connectivity solutions for Fibre Channel storage area networks, network attached storage and RAID. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made positive but false statements about Emulex's results and business, while concealing material adverse information about customers pushing out orders. As a result, Emulex's stock traded at artificially inflated levels, permitting defendants to sell $40.36 million worth of their Emulex stock. On February 9, 2001, Emulex issued a press release directing people to visit the Company Website. Visitors were able to listen to a recording of Emulex's CEO describing what Emulex would later disclose at a conference on February 13, 2001: that it had been experiencing a push-out of orders since late January that might cause Emulex sales to fall short of previous Company guidance for Emulex's 3rdQ F01 to end on April 1, 2001. On Monday morning when the market opened again, Emulex's stock immediately dropped, falling 48% to $38-1/8 before closing at $40-3/8 on February 12, 2001 on volume of 48.6 million shares.
