Case Summary

Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP filed a class action lawsuit charging Amdocs Limited (NASDAQ:DOX) and certain of its executives with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and seeks to represent purchasers or acquirers of Amdocs common stock between January 29, 2021 and March 30, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  The Amdocs class action lawsuit was commenced on April 9, 2021 in the Eastern District of Missouri and is captioned Glover v. Amdocs Limited, No. 21-cv-00418.

At least one other action has been filed. The claims in the actions encompass purchasers of Amdocs Limited common stock between December 13, 2016 and March 30, 2021

Amdocs provides global software and services to the communications, cable and satellite, entertainment, and media industry service providers.

The Amdocs class action lawsuit alleges that throughout the Class Period, Amdocs overstated the strength of its business metrics and financial prospects, including concealing that Amdocs had been losing customers and that its U.S. business in particular had been declining, that Amdocs had been borrowing undisclosed sums in the past to meet its capital needs but concealing that borrowing from investors, that Amdocs was concealing the restrictions on the cash it held, that Amdocs had been overstating its operating profits by up to 50%, and that as a result of the foregoing, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about Amdocs, its prospects, and revenue growth rate during the Class Period. 

On March 31, 2021, stock research firm Jehoshaphat Research issued a report entitled “WHERE DID AMDOCS’ PROFITS AND AUDITORS GO?,” revealing the results of that firm’s “months-long investigation into what” it believes to be “a massive financial deception taking place at Amdocs.”  Jehoshaphat Research said that it had “gathered extensive evidence from the national corporate registry filings of dozens of subsidiaries from around the globe” which it had compared to Amdocs’ public filings and found, among other things, “wildly overstated profit margins, a balance sheet that is far from the cash-rich fortress it appears to be, and a revolving door of company auditors resigning from their posts in multiple countries.” The Amdocs class action lawsuit alleges that according to Jehoshaphat Research, the “enormous discrepancies between DOX’s true business health and the mirage that is its reported finances simply do not reconcile.”  On this news, the market price of Amdocs common stock declined more than $9.00 per share on March 31, 2021, more than 10%, on extremely heavy trading volume.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Amdocs common stock during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Amdocs class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.  A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Amdocs class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Amdocs class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery of the Amdocs action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.  If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff of the Amdocs class action lawsuit or have questions concerning your rights regarding the Amdocs class action lawsuit, please provide your information here or contact counsel, Mary K. Blasy of Robbins Geller, at 800/449-4900 or 619/231-1058 or via e-mail at mblasy@rgrdlaw.com.
