Robbins Umeda LLP Announces the Filing of a Class Action Suit Against DJSP Enterprises, Inc.
Robbins Umeda LLP today announced that a class action has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida (the “Court”) on behalf of purchasers of DJSP Enterprises, Inc. (“DJSP” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: DJSP) common stock during the period between March 16, 2010 and May 27, 2010 (the “Class Period”).
DJSP is one of the largest providers of processing services for the mortgage and real estate industries in Florida and nationwide. The Company engages in providing non-legal services supporting real estate foreclosure, other related legal actions, and lender owned real estate services. The Company was founded in 1994 and is based in Plantation, Florida.
The complaint alleges that DJSP’s directors and officers issued materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose adverse facts known to them regarding the Company’s business and financial results. As a result these fiduciaries’ misstatements and omissions, DJSP’s stock traded at artificially inflated levels. The complaint charges DJSP and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Specifically, the complaint alleges that on March 16, 2010, DJSP filed a 6-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in which it touted its quarterly results announced on March 11, 2010, and assured investors that regardless of the Obama Administration’s efforts to slow down real estate foreclosures, DSJP would continue to profit from continued defaults. Furthermore, investors were told that defaults would continue into subsequent years and that DJSP’s business would not be affected by government involvement in the mortgage market. Then in April 2010, one of DJSP’s largest clients began a foreclosure system conversion which substantially decreased the volume of foreclosures referred to the Company. Until that time, DJSP generated a significant amount of its revenue from the providing of ancillary services to referral clients.
According to the complaint, on May 27, 2010, the Company shocked the market by lowering its guidance for adjusted net income by $15 million to $17 million and for adjusted EBIDTA by $18 million to $22 million. DJSP attributed the lowered guidance to, (i) the foreclosure system conversion of one of its largest bank clients in April 2010, which resulted in a reduction in the referral of foreclosures filed; and (ii) a temporary slowdown in foreclosures due to governmental intervention programs. DJSP’s Executive Vice President and CEO explained that the reason this information was not conveyed to shareholders back in April 2010, was due to a belief that these issues would fix themselves.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than 60 days from July 20, 2010.
