Breaking the Law
You couldn't make this stuff up (well Pure clearly could!).
So now they are in a quiet period they cannot talk about the numbers because they would be breaking the law.
However for the last two years they have been shouting very loudly from every possible rooftop about revenue numbers that the Exec team knew were wrong (and not just slightly wrong). I don't blame the sales teams because they would not have known details on the real numbers but the Pure Executive team should be highly embarrassed about the way they have misled their employees, customers, competitors and the analyst community.
Perhaps they will live to regret not being a little bit more quiet over the last two years.
I wonder what else was exaggerated???
