Block & Leviton LLP, a Boston -based law firm representing investors nationwide, is investigating possible securities law violations involving OCZ Technology Group, Inc. ("OCZ" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: OCZ).

The investigation is related to allegations that certain statements issued by the Company between July 10, 2012 and October 10, 2012 concerning OCZ's financial performance were knowingly false and misleading when made. On Wednesday, October 10, 2012, the Company issued a press release announcing that it was delaying the filing of its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, which ended August 31, 2012. The press release also disclosed that the Company's second quarter revenue will be "materially lower" than its previous guidance released on September 5, 2012, which was in the range of $110 to $120 million, "principally due to the impact of customer incentive programs," and that the Company expects to report a "significant net loss." Shortly after the release of this news, shares of OCZ dropped nearly 42 percent from a close of $3.15 on October 9, 2012 to close at $1.88 per share on October 10, 2012.

Block & Leviton's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether OCZ or its officers and directors have violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or any other federal securities laws. If you have any information relevant to this investigation, or if you purchased OCZ shares between July 10, 2012 and October 10, 2012 and have questions about your legal rights, please contact Mark A. Delaney at 617-398-5600 or via email at mark@blockesq.com.

Block & Leviton is a Boston-based law firm representing investors for violations of the securities laws. The firm's attorneys have collectively been prosecuting securities cases on behalf of investors for over 50 years.

This doesnt surprise me at all. OCZ SSD's have been going down hill for long time now. And since they primarily only really make PSUs and SSDs, with so much competition and one of the product lines not bringing home the bacon they are definitely gonna fall behind.

I bet they wish they still had their RAM department.

OCZ leaving the ram dept was a bad idea. not every one needs SSDs or swanky PSUs, but all computers need RAM to run on..

Silly, you shouldn't have cleared the magic dust bunnies in your pc. PSU is only a decoration :slap:
