Tintri Inc. (NASDAQ:TNTR)

Tintri Stock Performance
Analyst sentiments on Tintri Inc. (NASDAQ:TNTR) have turned sour ever since it became a public company. The stock is already down by more than 50% from its IPO price as investors continue to question its long-term growth prospects.
Fuelling the sell-off wave are reports that the company might have provided misleading statements in the run-up to its Initial Public Offering. According to a number of complaints lodged by law firms, the management team is accused of failing to disclose that the company was experiencing sales attrition as well as distraction and disruption in the business.
Tintri Sales Growth
Sales in the quarter coming in at the lower end of expectations and guidance appears to support concerns that the company might have withheld information from shareholders. Tintri Inc. (NASDAQ:TNTR) has sought to quash the concerns by unveiling new products and reiterating that it is on course to meet its growth targets.
The appointment of Leonardo is seen by observers as a move by Tintri to affirm its commitment to accelerating sales growth. He joins the company with over 20 years’ experience which the company believes will be crucial as he moves to oversee national account teams and sales channels.
“Tintri is continuing to expand on its channel commitment—through training and certifications we’ve helped our partners build their cloud businesses. Now Michael, especially through his experience with national partners, will play a critical role in refining our channel strategy and driving channel sales forward,” said Tom Ellery, Senior Vice President of Americas and Federal at Tintri.
Separately, Tintri Inc. (NASDAQ:TNTR) will be showcasing its newly launched solutions EC6000 series at the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQMSFT) Ignite conference in Orlando, Florida. The company will also demonstrate its deep integration with the Microsoft ecosystem as it seeks to help joint customers automate storage management and enable a number of enterprise cloud benefits.
