It is alleged within the complaint filed in this class action that Defendants made materially misleading and/or false statements, as well as failed to disclose facts that were materially adverse about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that Qutoutiao replaced its advertising agent with a related party, which bypassed third-party oversight of the content as well as the quality of the advertisements; (2) that the Company placed advertisements for products on its mobile app whose claims could not be substantiated and thus were considered false advertisements under the applicable regulations; (3) that, as a result, the Company would face increasing reputational harm and regulatory scrutiny; (4) that, as a result, the Company’s advertising revenue was reasonably likely to decline; and (5) that, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis, as a result of the foregoing.
A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than October 19, 2020.
