This lawsuit is for anyone who acquired securities in Health Insurance Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ: HIIQ) from May 9, 2016 through September 11, 2017.
The lawsuit alleges that the Company and certain of its executives violated federal law. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that, during the time period mentioned above, the Company misled investors regarding its financial condition. More specifically, the lawsuit alleges that the Company failed to disclose that lawsuits filed against Company insiders for breaching their fiduciary duties to the Company threatened the Company's ability to receive regulatory approval to sell insurance.
On September 11, 2017, SeekingAlpha.com published an article alleging, among other things, that the Company hid from Florida regulators lawsuits against Company insiders, that when the regulators found out about the lawsuits the regulators rejected one of the Company’s key license applications, and that, when the regulators found out about the lawsuits, in an effort to avoid rejection, the Company disclosed to the regulators that it was concerned that rejection could create a “domino effect” whereby licensing denials would spread to other states. By admitting to Florida regulators that it was privately concerned with the affect the lawsuits would have on licensing, the Company was also admitting its failure to disclose that material information to investors. On this news, the price of the Company's stock dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume.
