The Complaint charges certain of the Company’s current and former executive officers and directors with violations of federal securities laws. Ideation was a blank-check company formed for the purpose of acquiring, through a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition or other similar business combination, one or more businesses. On April 1, 2009, the Company announced an agreement to purchase SearchMedia International Limited ("SMIL"), a purported nationwide multi-platform media company in China. On October 30, 2009, Ideation completed the acquisition of SMIL (the “Merger”) and changed its name to SearchMedia.
The Complaint relates to material misstatements and/or omissions in the joint proxy statement and prospectus (the "Proxy/Prospectus") issued in connection with the Merger, as well as other public statements issued during the Class Period related to the Merger and SMIL. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants knew or recklessly disregarded that their public statements concerning SearchMedia and SMIL’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that SMIL was improperly recognizing revenue; (2) that certain of SMIL’s accounts receivable related to sales generated primarily in the in-elevator business were uncollectible, (3) that, as a result, SMIL’s financial results were overstated; (4) that SMIL’s financial results were not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles; (5) that SMIL lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (6) as a result of the above, SMIL’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
