Lexis, the online company that offers financial advice to terminally-ill patients, has shut down its doors.

The company had announced plans to close its doors on Tuesday.

The announcement was made on its Twitter account, which has now been taken down. 

The news came on the same day that Lexis closed a fund-raising campaign.

The fund-raiser, for which Lexis was the primary beneficiary, raised $2m for terminally sick patients.

The funds raised in its fundraising campaign were earmarked for terminals. 

Earlier this month, Lexis announced that it would close its digital division, with the aim of focusing its efforts on the retail side of its business. 

Lexis said it will continue to operate through its existing and planned acquisition of the Australian branch of online retailer Amazon.
