HAGENS BERMAN, NATIONAL TRIAL ATTORNEYS, Alerts DiDi Global (DIDI) Investors to Filing of ...
SAN FRANCISCO, July 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges DiDi Global, Inc. (NYSE: DIDI) investors with significant losses to submit your losses now. Securities class action lawsuits have been filed that relate to DiDi’s IPO issuance of 316 million American Depositary Shares at $14/ADS. Certain investors may have valuable claims.
DiDi Global, Inc. (DIDI) Securities Class Actions:
According to the lawsuits the IPO materials contained misleading statements about (1) DiDi’s problem of collecting personal information in violation of Chinese laws and regulations, (2) the likelihood that DiDi’s app, DiDi Chuxing (Travel), would face imminent cybersecurity review by the Cyberspace Administration of China (“CAC”), and as a result (3) the CAC would require all Chinese app stores to remove DiDi Chuxing.
Within days of closing the IPO, investors began to learn the truth through a series of announcements.
On July 2, 2021, DiDi disclosed the CAC launched an investigation into the company to protect national security and the public interest and required it to suspend new user registrations in China.
On July 4, 2021, the company announced the CAC determined the company’s DiDi Chuxing app has the problem of collecting personal information in violation of Chinese laws and regulations and ordered app stores to take down the app in China.
On July 5, 2021, The Wall Street Journal reported that, three months before the IPO, the CAC asked DiDi to postpone the offering because of national security concerns and to conduct a thorough self-examination of its network security.
These events sent the price of DiDi ADSs crashing lower.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving DiDi and senior management knew of the Chinese regulators’ demands but nonetheless rushed to market without first satisfying those demands,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
