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 Tal securities between April 26, 2018 and June 13, 2018 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Lea v. TAL Education Group, et al., No. 18-cv-05480 was filed on June 18, 2018 and has been assigned to Judge Robert W. Sweet.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) the Company overstated its net income; (2) that the Company's net income was deteriorating; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Tal executives’ statements about Tal’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Specifically, on June 13, 2018, Carson Block, founder of Muddy Waters Research, issued a report accusing the Company of issuing fraudulent profit figures by overstating income, net income margin and other essential accounting figures. In his report, Carson Block estimated that between Fiscal Year 2016 and through Fiscal Year 2018, Tal overstated its net income by at least 43.6%. Carson Block also calculated that, in the same time frame, Tal had inflated its pre-tax profits by $153.2 million, or 28.4%.

On this news, the Tal’s stock price dropped, causing harm to investors.
