ST. LOUIS – April 1, 2021 – Amdocs Limited (NASDAQ: DOX) (“Amdocs” or the “Company”), today commented on a short seller report published yesterday, March 31, 2021 by Jehoshaphat Research:

The report contains inaccurate statements, groundless claims and speculation that were designed to drive the stock price downwards to serve the short seller’s interests to the detriment of Amdocs shareholders. We remain fully confident in our accounting and business practices. We caution shareholders from making investment decisions based on this report.

We continue to communicate directly with our investors regarding the short seller’s report and we will provide more detailed information next week.
