NEW YORK, NY – August 4, 2020 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Guidewire Software Inc. (“Guidewire” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: GWRE).  A complaint has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Guidewire common stock between March 6, 2019 and March 4, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

On March 4, 2020, after market, Guidewire announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 and slashed its full-year revenue guidance by $57 million, from a range of $759 million to $771 million to only $702 million to $714 million.  Guidewire also cut its Annual Recurring Revenue guidance from a range of 14% to 16%, down to 11% to 12% for the third quarter of 2020.  According to the complaint, during the earnings conference call, Guidewire indicated that the Company’s cloud products needed to be improved in order to meet customer needs and successfully compete against rival systems, and also revealed that a large swath of Guidewire customers no longer wanted the Company’s traditional on-premise products and had not adopted Guidewire’s cloud products. 

On March 5, 2020, Guidewire’s stock price plummeted $18.92 per share, nearly 17%, to close at $93.56 per share.
