About the Lawsuit
X Financial and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information in its IPO Registration Statement and Prospectus, violating federal securities laws.
The alleged false and misleading statements and omissions include, but are not limited to, that: (i) the Company’s total loan facilitation amount was contracting, not growing; (ii) the number of investors actively using its lending platform was shrinking; (iii) demand for the Company’s preferred loans by small- and medium-sized enterprises was plummeting; (iv) pre-IPO, the Company had begun drastically scaling back its preferred loans due to poor performance and was in the process of phasing them out completely; (v) demand for the Company’s card loans was plummeting; (vi) the revenue and loan facilitation growth provided in the Registration Statement leading up to the IPO was achieved by relaxed lending standards, through which the Company had underwritten tens of millions of dollars’ worth of poor-quality loans that suffered from a disproportionately high risk of default as compared to the Company’s earlier loan vintages; (vii) poor quality loans underwritten by the Company in the first, second, and third quarters of 2018 were causing accelerated delinquency rates; (viii) the Company’s product mix had significantly deteriorated; (ix) the Company’s net revenue was on track to decline by 22% during the third quarter of 2018; and (x) as a result of the foregoing, X Financial’s statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
The case is Chen v. X Financial, et al, 19-cv-06908.
