Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP Investigating Yangtze River Port and Logistics Limited’s Directors and Officers for Breach of Fiduciary Duties – YRIV

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), an international securities and consumer rights litigation firm, is investigating whether certain directors and officers of Yangtze River Port and Logistics Limited (“Yangtze” or the “Company”) (YRIV) breached their fiduciary duties to Yangtze and its shareholders. If you are a Yangtze shareholder, you may contact attorney Joe Pettigrew for additional information: 844-818-6982 or jpettigrew@scott-scott.com.

Scott+Scott is investigating whether members of Yangtze’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts, about Yangtze’s business, operations, prospects, and financial health. Specifically, Scott+Scott is investigating whether the Board failed to disclose material information, including whether: (1) Yangtze’s purported lease of Wuhan Newport, the Company’s main asset, was a fabrication; (2) Yangtze’s only operating subsidiary, Wuhan Newport, was declared insolvent in China due to a number of default judgments against it; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On August 27, 2018, Barron’s published, “A Troubled Chinese Company Is Seeking a Lifeline From U.S. Investors,” revealing that Wuhan Newport was “showing up on official websites in which Chinese courts list debtors with unpaid legal judgments.” On this news, Yangtze stock fell $0.11 per share, or almost 1%, to close at $11.53 on August 27, 2018.

On December 6, 2018, Hindenburg Research published a report, entitled “Yangtze River Port & Logistics: Total Zero. On-the-Ground Research Shows Assets Appear to be Largely Fabricated,” which caused Yangtze stock to fall $3.34 per share – over 28% – over the next two trading days to close at $8.28 per share on December 7, 2018.
