Why would they do that? They have business they have to run. Oh.........we are supposed to be part owners. Well, that seems to be a matter of opinion. Having stock holders is the basis of a public company, but, not if the company sees this as only a necessary evil. Now add up the +++institutional owners + hedge fund owners + insiders + various foreign charities= more shares than exist. You could fit the real owners of ebix in 1 bus. It would be full with no more room for the people that have to sit in the back. ATTENTION: Bus departing for,,"Parts unknown",,leaving now, arriving soon....Will the small crowd waving frantically and jumping up and down PLEASE leave the boarding area as soon a possible,;do not loiter out side,, or,, security will be called. The rest please enjoy your journey that was made possible by Stick-it-2Utron, the innovative Stock Travel Service of the future. Now, the real problem is,,,,,,,,,,,not one of us standing on the outside knows who is driving the bus, or, where it is going. And NO, they did not respond to my call or email. I often promise money, then, just do not pay it, then, when asked about it, give no response. I know of no rule or law that prevents a company, under any circumstances, from responding to a direct share holder question about dividend promised. A simple announcement: Until further notice EBIX will suspend it's dividend.
