LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the February 13, 2018 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased Liberty Tax, Inc. (“Liberty” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: TAX) securities between June 29, 2016 and December 11, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Liberty investors have until February 13, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion. To obtain information or actively participate in the class action, please visit the Liberty page on our website at www.glancylaw.com/case/liberty-tax-inc.
Investors suffering losses on their Liberty investments are encouraged to contact Lesley Portnoy of GPM to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 310-201-9150 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On September 6, 2017, Liberty announced that founder and CEO John T. Hewitt had been terminated; and, on November 7, 2017, Liberty announced the resignation of Kathleen Donovan, its Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. On December 11, 2017, Liberty reported that KPMG LLP resigned as its independent registered public accounting firm and that Liberty would delay the filing of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended October 31, 2017.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made a series of false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s disclosures, controls and procedures. For example, although Defendants told the investing public that the Company maintained effective internal controls to ensure the accuracy of its financial reporting, investors ultimately learned the opposite was true, i.e. the Company’s internal controls were ineffective and did not ensure accurate financial reporting. The market learned the truth on December 11, 2017, when Liberty Tax filed a Form 8-K with the SEC announcing the sudden resignation of its independent registered public accounting firm, and stated that the Company would delay the filing of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended October 31, 2017.
