Levi & Korsinsky announces it has commenced an investigation of Newport Corp. (NASDAQGS:NEWP) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws. The investigation concerns whether Newport and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. On July 20, 2015, Newport announced that it was significantly lowering its guidance for the second quarter of 2015 ended July 4, 2015, citing lower sales, a loss of $1.4 million from the company's newly acquired Femtolasers business, and an inventory charge of approximately $1.1 million. Newport stated that it expected sales to be in the range of $147-$148 million for the second quarter of 2015, despite having previously announced that it expected sales to be in the range of $154-161 million. On this unfavorable news, the share price of Newport fell nearly 11%, or $1.87 per share, from its previous closing share price of $17.86 on July 17, 2015 to close at $15.99 on July 20, 2015.
