The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all those who acquired X Financial American Depositary Shares pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s September 19, 2018 IPO. The case, Chen v. X Financial et al, No. 19-cv-06908 was filed on December 9, 2019.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws in the Company’s Registration Statement by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) the Company’s total loan facilitation amount was not growing, but rather was contracting; (2) the number of investors actively using X Financials’ platform was shrinking; (3) demand from SMEs for the Company’s preferred loans was plummeting; (4) the Company’s preferred loans had performed so poorly that it had begun drastically scaling back its preferred loans in the first quarter of 2018, several months before the IPO, and was in the process of phasing out such loans completely; (5) demand for the Company’s card loans was also plummeting; (6) the revenue and loan facilitation growth provided in the Registration Statement leading up to the IPO was achieved by relaxed credit and due diligence standards, under which the Company had underwritten tens of millions of dollars’ worth of poor quality loans that suffered from a disproportionately high risk of default as compared to the Company’s earlier loan vintages; (7) the Company was suffering from accelerated delinquency rates from poor quality loans that it had underwritten in the first, second, and third quarters of 2018, which had caused the Company’s delinquency rate to sharply rise; (8) the Company’s product mix had significantly deteriorated; (9) the Company’s net revenue was on track to decline by 22% during the third quarter of 2018; and (10) as a result, the Registration Statement was materially false and/or misleading and failed to state information required to be stated therein.
On November 22, 2019, X Financials’ ADSs closed at $1.74 per ADS. This price represented an 81.68% decline from the $9.50 per share price at which X Financials’ ADSs had been sold to the investing public in the IPO.
As of the date this complaint was filed, X Financials’ ADSs continue to trade below the $9.50 per share IPO price.
