Alibaba : Notice of Lead Plaintiff Deadline for Shareholders in the Alibaba Group Holdings Limited Class Action Lawsuit

12/03/2020 | 09:08am EST

Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Alibaba Group Holdings Limited (NYSE:BABA) securities between October 21, 2020 and November 3, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The case is captioned Ciccarello v. Alibaba Group Holdings Limited, No. 20-cv-09568, and is assigned to Judge George B. Daniels. The Alibaba class action lawsuit charges Alibaba and certain of its executives with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Alibaba securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Alibaba class action lawsuit. A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class. A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Alibaba class action lawsuit. The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Alibaba class action lawsuit. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery of the Alibaba class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff of the Alibaba class action lawsuit or have questions concerning your rights regarding the Alibaba class action lawsuit, please provide your information here or contact counsel, J.C. Sanchez of Robbins Geller, at 800/449-4900 or 619/231-1058 or via e-mail at jsanchez@rgrdlaw.com. Lead plaintiff motions for the Alibaba class action lawsuit must be filed with the court no later than January 12, 2021.

Alibaba is an online and mobile commerce company. Alibaba owns a 33% equity interest in Ant Small and Micro Financial Services Group Co., Ltd. (“Ant Group”), a financial technology company that is best known for operating Alipay, one of the largest mobile and online payment platforms. On July 20, 2020, Ant Group announced that it had begun the process of a concurrent initial public offering (“IPO”) on the Shanghai and Hong Kong stock exchanges. On October 26, 2020, Ant Group priced its IPO and was set to raise $34.5 billion, making it the largest public offering in history.

The Alibaba class action lawsuit alleges that, during the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Ant Group did not meet listing qualifications or disclosure requirements for certain material matters; (2) certain impending changes in the Fintech regulatory environment would impact Ant Group’s business; (3) Ant Group’s IPO was reasonably likely to be suspended; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about Alibaba’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On November 2, 2020, Financial Times reported that Chinese regulators had met with Ant Group’s controller Jack Ma, executive chairman Eric Jing, and Chief Executive Officer Simon Hu. The article stated that, though regulators did not provide details, “the Chinese word used to describe the interview – yuetan – generally indicate[s] a dressing down by authorities.” The article also included a statement from Ant Group that it would “implement the meeting opinions in depth.” The following day, on November 3, 2020, the IPO was suspended because Ant Group “may not meet listing qualifications or disclosure requirements due to material matters” related to the meeting with regulators the previous day and “the recent changes in the Fintech regulatory environment.” On this news, Alibaba’s share price fell more than 8%, damaging investors.
