NEW YORK, Feb 24, 2018 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed
against Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (“AMD” or the “Company”)
and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in
United States District Court, for the Northern District of California,
and docketed under 18-cv-00321, is on behalf of a class consisting of
investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the securities of AMD
between February 21, 2017 and January 11, 2018, both dates inclusive
(the “Class Period”). Plaintiff seeks to recover compensable damages
caused by Defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws and to
pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. manufactures semiconductor products, which
includes microprocessors, embedded microprocessors, chipsets, graphics,
video and multimedia products. The Company offers its products worldwide.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s
business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
(i) a fundamental security flaw in AMD’s processor chips renders them
susceptible to hacking; and (ii) as a result, AMD’s public statements
were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On January 3, 2018, media outlets reported that Google Project Zero’s
security team had discovered serious security flaws affecting computer
processors built by Intel Corporation, AMD and other chipmakers. In a
blog post, the Project Zero team stated that one of these security
flaws—dubbed the “Spectre” vulnerability—allows third parties to gather
passwords and other sensitive data from a system’s memory. In response
to the Project Zero team’s announcement, a spokesperson for AMD advised
investors that while its own chips were vulnerable to one variant of
Spectre, there was “near zero risk” that AMD chips were vulnerable to
the second Spectre variant.
Then, on January 11, 2018, post-market, AMD issued a press release
entitled “An Update on AMD Processor Security,” acknowledging that its
chips were, in fact, susceptible to both variants of the
Spectre security flaw.
On this news, AMD’s share price fell $0.12 or 0.99%, to close at $12.02
on January 12, 2018.
