Boston, Massachusetts–(Newsfile Corp. – February 22, 2021) – Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockleviton.com), a national securities litigation firm, reminds investors that it is investigating Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBIX) for potential violations of the federal securities laws.
Before the markets opened on February 22, 2021, Ebix issued a press release announcing that RSM US LLP, Ebix’s independent registered public accounting firm, had resigned on February 15, 2021. In its resignation letter, RSM stated that it was “unable, despite repeated inquiries, to obtain appropriate audit evidence that would allow it to evaluate the business purpose of significant unusual transactions that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2020.” RSM further stated that it had identified a material weakness because Ebix’s “management did not design or implement the necessary procedures and controls over the gift or prepaid card revenue transaction cycle to prevent or detect a material misstatement.” The market was stunned by this announcement, with shares plunging by over 50% during intraday trading.
Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockleviton.com) is investigating whether Ebix and certain of its executives may be liable for securities fraud.
