On June 5, 2019, the Company reported $103.8 million losses from
operations for first quarter 2020, roughly double the year-over-year
period. The Company disclosed that it was losing business despite its
recent merger with Hortonworks, Inc. and that it suffered an elevated
dollar churn rate of 15%. Moreover, the Company announced the abrupt
retirement of its Chief Executive Officer.

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $3.59, or nearly 41%, to
close at $5.21 on June 6, 2019, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the
Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading
statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about
the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically,
Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) Cloudera was finding it
increasingly difficult to identify large enterprises interested in
adopting the Company’s Hadoop-based platform; (2) Cloudera needed to
expend an increasing amount of capital on sales and marketing activities
to generate new revenues; (3) Cloudera had materially diminished sales
opportunities and prospects and could not generate annual positive cash
flows for the foreseeable future; (4) the primary motivation for the
Company’s merger with Hortonworks was to generate growth through the
acquisition of Hortonworks’ existing customers (as opposed to obtaining
them organically); (5) that the purported synergies and other benefits
of the merger with Hortonworks were materially overstated; and (6) as a
result, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and/or
misleading at all relevant times.
