NEW YORK — A former executive with leading voicemail software maker Comverse Technology Inc. pleaded guilty to conspiracy and securities fraud Tuesday after agreeing to cooperate in the investigation of a scheme to make millions of dollars by manipulating stock options. The plea in Brooklyn federal court clears the way for the former head of finance, David Kreinberg, to testify against former chief executive Jacob “Kobi” Alexander, who is fighting extradition in Africa.

Before he disappeared, Alexander, an Israeli citizen and a U.S. permanent resident, transferred $57 million to Israel, fueling speculation he may have fled there, prosecutors said.
