Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF") and KSF partner, the former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., remind investors that they have only until June 15, 2020 to file lead plaintiff applications in securities class action lawsuits against iQIYI, Inc. (NasdaqGS: IQ), if they purchased the Company’s securities between March 29, 2018 and April 7, 2020, inclusive (the "Class Period") including securities issued in connection with its March 2018 Initial Public Offering. These actions are pending in the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York and Northern District of California.

About the Lawsuit

IQIYI and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On April 7, 2020, Wolfpack Research reported that the Company had misled investors and failed to disclose pertinent information generally and in its Registration Statement, including that it had overstated its user numbers by approximately 42%-60%, inflated its revenues by approximately 27%-44%, inflated expenses and prices of assets to conceal its revenue inflation, and issued misleading financial reporting creating the appearance of a cash generative company.

On this news, the price of iQIYI’s shares declined, injuring investors.

The first-filed case is Lee v. Iqiyi, Inc. et al, 20cv1830.
