There is no cost or obligation to you.
As detailed below, the lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Cloopen’s “land and expand” strategy was failing and its customer base deteriorating; (2) the Company’s dollar-based net retention rate was not “stable,” but rather had dropped significantly by the end of 2020; (3) at the time of the IPO, an increasing number of customers were not paying Cloopen for the services and/or solutions it provided, forcing Cloopen to recognize massive increases in its accounts receivable and its allowance for doubtful accounts; (4) because Cloopen had valued certain warrants at extremely low levels, the Company would recognize massive additional costs associated with those warrants; and (5) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
In February 2021, Cloopen conducted its IPO, selling 23 million ADSs at $16 per ADS.
On March 26, 2021, Cloopen released its 2020 fourth quarter financial results for the period ending December 31, 2020 – more than a month before the IPO. Cloopen reported revenues of $39.6 million, $2 million short of analysts’ consensus, as well as net losses of $46.8 million (a 466.9% year-over-year increase), and operating expenses of $27.6 million (a 30% year-over-year increase).
On this news, Cloopen’s shares fell $14.42, or 18.5%, to close at $11.75 per ADS on March 26, 2021.
On May 10, 2021, Cloopen filed its 2020 annual report, revealing that its dollar-based net customer retention rate for recurring solutions fell from 102.7% in 2019 to 86.8% in 2020, which meant that Cloopen’s purportedly “loyal” customer base was not “expand[ing]” into additional solutions and the Company’s growth strategy was not effective.
On this news, Cloopen’s shares closed at $8.97 per ADS on May 12, 2021. Since the IPO, Cloopen’s ADSs have traded as low as $2.70 per ADS, an 80% decline from the $16 IPO price.
