On December 16, 2021, Muddy Waters Research, a market analyst, released a report alleging multiple problems with KE Holdings, stating that the Company is “engaged in systemic fraud,” and that its research showed that KE Holdings was overstating the agents and stores on its platforms; its gross transaction value (“GTV”); and its revenues, among other wrongdoing.

On this news, KE Holdings’ share price fell $0.37, or 1.98%, to close at $18.31 per share on December 16, 2021, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants: (1) inflated the Company’s GTV; (2) inflated the Company’s revenues; (3) inflated the number of stores and agents using the Company’s platform; and (4) that, as a result, of the foregoing, defendants’ statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
