According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Zebra Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ZBRA) common shares between March 17, 2015 and May 9, 2016, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between March 17, 2015 and May 9, 2016, the defendants failed to disclose that Zebra Technologies had understated its income taxes through the end of 2015, underaccrued certain 2015 estimates, in particular with respect to its sales commission plan, and overstated the net realizable value of trade receivables acquired in connection with the Company's acquisition of Motorola's Enterprise division.

The plaintiff further alleges that Zebra Technologies Corp. also failed to disclose the impact of material weaknesses identified in its internal controls and procedures over financial reporting and disclosure, which caused the misstatements and rendered the Company's financial guidance for 2015 and the first and second quarters of 2016 materially false and misleading.

On May 10, 2016, before the open of trading, Zebra Technologies Corp. announced its financial results for its first quarter of 2016, stating that "first quarter results [were] below . . . expectations, with lower sales and earnings reflecting the continuation of a cautious enterprise spending environment."
