Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action Against X Financial (XYF)

December 2, 2019 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 2, 2019--

Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), an international shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against X Financial (“X Financial” or the “Company”) (NYSE: XYF), certain of its officers and directors, and the underwriters of the Company’s September 2018 initial public offering (“IPO”), alleging violations of federal securities laws. If you purchased X Financial American Depository Shares (“ADSs”) pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s IPO on or about September 19, 2018, you are encouraged to contact Scott+Scott attorney Jonathan Zimmerman at (888) 398-9312 for more information.

X Financial is a financial technology company based in Shenzhen, China, that operates a peer-to-peer platform that matches borrowers with lenders.

The lawsuit alleges that the Company (and other named defendants) misled investors by failing to disclose that, among other things: (1) the Company’s total loan facilitation amount was not growing, but rather contracting; (2) the number of investors using the Company’s platform was shrinking; (3) demand for the Company’s preferred loans and card loans were plummeting; (4) the Company was suffering from accelerated delinquency rates from poor quality loans that it had underwritten; (5) the Company’s product mix had significantly deteriorated; and (6) that the Company’s net revenue was on track to decline by 22% during the third quarter of 2018.

Immediately prior to the filing of the lawsuit, X Financials’ securities closed at $1.74 per ADS, representing an 80% decline from the price at which X Financials’ ADSs were sold in the IPO.
