Ebix shares fell 39.89% on February 22, 2021, following the disclosure that its independent auditor, RSM US LLP (“RSM”), resigned. RMS stated in a letter that it was resigning over concerns with Ebix’s gift card business in India.

The complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that there was insufficient audit evidence to determine the business purpose of certain significant unusual transactions in Ebix’s gift card business in India during the fourth quarter of 2020; (2) that there was a material weakness in the Company’s internal controls over the gift or prepaid revenue transaction cycle; and (3) that the Company’s independent auditor was reasonably likely to resign over disagreements with Ebix regarding $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

A lead plaintiff will act on behalf of all other class members in directing the Ebix class action lawsuit. The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Ebix class-action lawsuit. An investor’s ability to share any potential future recovery of the Ebix class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.
