According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. United Microelectronics entered into a conspiracy with Fujian to steal trade secrets from Micron related to the R&D of DRAM. The Company hired former Micron employees specifically to steal research and trade secrets from Micron. These activities put the Company at risk of criminal investigation by the U.S. government. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about United Microelectronics, investors suffered damages.

Join the case to recover your losses.
