ZTO Accused of Exaggerating Its Profit Margins
According to the complaint, on October 27, 2016, ZTO held the Offering, selling 72,100,000 ADSs at a price of $19.50 per share, raising $1.4 billion. ZTO's registration statement and prospectus filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in support of the Offering presented a highly positive picture of the company's business, performance, prospects, and acreage, while omitting crucial realities. The company specifically emphasized its strong operating leverage, superior profitability, and rapid growth. However, ZTO failed to disclose that it was improperly inflating its stated profit margins far above industry norms by keeping low-margin segments of its business out of its financial statements. Since the Offering, the price of ZTO's ADSs has fallen approximately 25%.
