17:49 EDTSYMC, FTNT, PANW, CHKP, FEYE, IMPVImperva plummets after lowering Q1 EPS and revenue outlook
Imperva (IMPV), a data security solutions company, is down more than 34% in extended trading after the company lowered its first quarter earnings per share and revenue outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Imperva said it now sees a Q1 adjusted EPS view of (44c)-(40c), down from (37c)-(33c) and below the analyst consensus of (35c). The company also lowered its Q1 revenue view to $31M-$31.5M from $36M-$37M, below a consensus of $36.69M. The company said its Q1 results "were primarily impacted by extended sales cycles on deals over $100,000, which led to delays in receiving anticipated orders from customers, particularly in the U.S., which resulted in lower than expected revenue for products." ANALYST REACTION: Wells Fargo said it believes the magnitude of Imperva's Q1 miss will weigh on the Cyber Security industry since expectations for the group were relatively high going into earnings. Wells noted, however, that it saw little direct fundamental implications for other names in the group as Imperva's issues were likely more company specific. PRICE ACTION: Imperva is trading down $16.98, or 34.14%, to $32.75 in the after-hours. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other names in the space include Check Point (CHKP), Fortinet (FTNT), FireEye (FEYE), Palo Alto (PANW) and Symantec (SYMC). Both Fortinet and FireEye are trading down over 2% in the after-hours.
