STEVENSON, MD--(Marketwire - Sep 16, 2011) - Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons who purchased Sequans Communications S.A.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Securities Act of 1933 by virtue of the Company's failure to disclose during the Class Period and/or in connection with its initial offer of shares to the public on or about April 15, 2011, that revenues from the Company's WiMAX products were declining; that the Company was not in position to generate any meaningful revenues from sales of 4G LTE products until late 2012; that HTC, the Company's largest customer, and the industry in general were focusing more on 4G LTE offerings as opposed to WiMAX offerings; that the Company would experience sales declines during 2011; and that the Company, had become increasingly dependent upon sales to HTC, and sales to HTC had declined and would continue to do so. According to the complaint, after, on July 28, 2011, Sequans reported net profit of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per diluted ADS, compared to a net profit of $1.9 million, or $0.07 per ADS, in the first quarter of 2011 and a net profit of $0.6 million, or $0.02 per ADS, in the second quarter of 2010, the value of Sequans shares declined significantly.
