The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Sogou American Depository Shares ("ADSs") pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's November 9, 2017 IPO. The case, Luo v. Sogou, Inc. et al., No. 19-cv-00230 was filed on January 9, 2019, and has been assigned to Judge J. Paul Oetken.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) Chinese regulators were analyzing Sogou for regulatory action because of an increase Sogou merchants’ sales of counterfeit goods; (2) Chinese regulators were analyzing Sogou for regulatory action because Sogou’s existing software, advertising procedures, personnel, and audit procedures were insufficient to safeguard against compliance violations with governing Chinese regulations, and would need to be updated, enhanced, and strengthened, thus resulting in increased expenses; (3) Sogou’s cost of revenues were skyrocketing primarily because of significant increases in Traffic Acquisition Cost, which is a primary driver of Sogou’s cost of revenues, as Sogou was dealing with significant price inflation from increased competition; (4) Sogou was going to alter its strategy concerning smart hardware and push the Company’s AI capabilities to increase product competitiveness; and (5) as a result of altering its smart hardware strategy, Sogou had already decided to phase out non-AI-enabled hardware products, such as legacy models of Teemo Smart Watch, and transition to use products integrating AI technologies, which Sogou hoped would reduce its hardware revenues in the second half of 2018.
Since Sogou's IPO, the Company's share price has declined from its IPO price of $13 by approximately 53%.
