Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces Investigation of Citrix Systems, Inc. (CTXS) on Behalf of Investors

BENSALEM, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that it has commenced an investigation of potential claims against the board of directors of Citrix Systems, Inc. (“Citrix” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CTXS) concerning whether the board of directors breached its fiduciary duties to Citrix shareholders.

In 2019, Citrix deployed a transition of its customers from an on-premise, per-user license to a cloud-based, subscription model. As customers heavily relied on secure remote access amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company offered a special on-premise license to “help [its] customers with their immediate business needs” at a discounted rate, expecting customers to transition to cloud accounts after the one-year term expired. Throughout 2020, Citrix claimed the transition was accelerating.

However, on April 29, 2021, Citrix announced that many customers moved on to another short-term on-premise license, citing the COVID-19 pandemic. On this news, Citrix’s stock fell $10.49, or 7.6%, to close at $128.02 per share on April 29, 2021, thereby injuring investors.

Then, on July 29, 2021, Citrix reported that the transition to cloud was not as successful as the Company had led investors to believe. Citrix announced a major restructuring of its sales leadership, warning that the changes were “significant and may cause short-term disruption before yielding tangible results.” On this news, Citrix’s stock fell $15.55, or 13.6%, to close at $99.00 per share on July 29, 2021, injuring investors further.

If you still hold Citrix shares purchased before January 2020, have information or would like to learn more about this matter, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
