According to the lawsuit, the Company made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Liberty Tax's former CEO John T. Hewitt created an inappropriate tone at the top; (2) the inappropriate tone at the top led to ineffective entity level controls over the organization; and (3) as a result, 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. When the truth was revealed to the investing public, shares dropped sharply.
