Synchronoss Technologies Motion to Dismiss Granted in Securities Class Action08:05 EDT Friday, April 09, 2010 BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (Business Wire) -- Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNCR), the leading global provider of on-demand transaction management software platforms, today announced that the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey has granted Synchronoss' motion to dismiss the purported consolidated securities class action complaint filed against Synchronoss and certain of its officers. The lawsuit had alleged violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 primarily based on statements concerning the Company's financial and business prospects. In its Order dated April 7, 2010, the Court dismissed, without prejudice, all claims against all defendants. “Unfortunately, many public companies are too often faced with lawsuits that have no factual or legal merit, driven by certain individuals looking to profit at shareholders' expense,” said Stephen G. Waldis, Chief Executive Officer and President, Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. "We are gratified with the court's decision to dismiss this case at the outset, as it should never have been brought in the first place," said Jordan Hershman of Bingham McCutchen, lead counsel for Synchronoss.
