Ixia Announces Financial Restatements for the 2010 and 2011 Fiscal Years and Parts of 2012

Robbins Arroyo LLP is investigating whether Ixia's financial reporting for fiscal years 2010 through 2012 was potentially false and misleading.  On March 19, 2013, Ixia reported that the company would be unable to timely file its Annual Report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, citing the need for additional time to correct an error related to the manner in which it recognized certain revenues.  Then, on April 3, 2013, Ixia announced that it identified an additional error in the company's revenue recognition practices, requiring Ixia to restate its financial results for the 2010 and 2011 fiscal years and each fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2011 through September 30, 2012. Specifically, Ixia disclosed errors in its accounting practice related to when the company begins to recognize revenues associated with its warranty and software maintenance contracts.  On this news, shares of Ixia declined over $2.50, or 12%, on April 4 and 5, 2013, to close at $17.79 per share.
