Sunnyvale, Calif.-based radiotherapy devices maker Accuray (NSDQ:ARAY) will lay off about 13% of its global workforce, mostly in the U.S., the company reported this week.

Accuray made the announcement upon releasing its preliminary 2nd quarter 2013 financial results, in which the company noted a 45%-50% decline in product revenue.

The news sent ARAY shares down more than 20% to trade at $5.40, compared with last night's close at $6.78.
