The complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose that:

  • Liberty Tax's former CEO John T. Hewitt created an inappropriate tone at the top of the organization;
  • the inappropriate tone at the top led to ineffective entity level controls over the organization;
  • and; consequently, defendants' statements about Liberty Tax's business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On September 6, 2017,   Liberty  Tax  announced  that its  founder  and  Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) John T. Hewitt  had been terminated.  On    November  7, 2017, Liberty  Tax announced  the resignation  of Kathleen  Donovan, its  Vice President and Chief  Financial Officer. On this news, shares  of Liberty  Tax fell $2.25 per share or over 16%  from its previous closing price to close  at $11.00 per share on November 8, 2017.

Subsequently, on December 11, 2017, Liberty Tax filed  a Form 8-K  with the SEC,  reporting that KPMG LLP resigned  as its independent  registered public accounting  firm and that Liberty Tax  will delay the  filing of its  quarterly report on  Form 10-Q for  the  quarter  ended  October 31,  2017.  KPMG  reportedly  expressed concerns regarding internal  controls over financial  reporting as related  to the integrity and  tone at the  top set by  Liberty Tax’s former  CEO John  T. Hewitt.
