Newman Ferrara LLP is conducting an investigation on behalf of
shareholders of Avid Technology, Inc. ("Avid") (Nasdaq) ("AVID") into
potential violations of federal securities laws and breaches of
fiduciary duty by Avid and certain of its officers and directors.
On February 25, 2013, Avid announced that it is postponing its
fourth-quarter earnings release, originally scheduled for February 26,
indefinitely due to accounting issues. Specifically, Avid stated that it
needs "additional time for the Company to evaluate its current and
historical accounting treatment related to bug fixes, upgrades and
enhancements to certain products which the Company has provided to
certain customers." Avid announced that it is "unable to estimate when
the evaluation will be completed." On this news, shares of Avid stock
dropped approximately 12% in value to a February 25, 2013 trading price
of $6.71 per share.
Shareholders of Avid stock may contact Newman Ferrara attorneys Jeffrey
