(“Luckin Coffee” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LK) and other defendants, related to alleged violations of federal securities laws, is April 13, 2020.

According to the lawsuit, Luckin Coffee made materially false and misleading statements about Luckin Coffee’s financial performance metrics, which, as a result, were unreliable and overstated the Company’s financial health.
On January 31, 2020, Muddy Waters Research (“Muddy Waters”) published a report alleging that Luckin Coffee had fabricated certain of the Company’s financial performance metrics, beginning in the third quarter of 2019. The Muddy Waters report asserted that Luckin Coffee inflated its per-store per-day sales figures, citing a review of thousands of hours of store video, and that Luckin Coffee significantly inflated its net selling price per item.
On this news, the price of Luckin Coffee ADSs fell $3.91 per share – 10.74% – to close at $32.49 per share on January 31, 2020. Then, on April 2, 2020, Luckin Coffee disclosed that an internal investigation found that its Chief Operating Officer fabricated 2019 sales by about 2.2 billion yuan ($310 million) and warned investors not to rely on its prior financial statements and earnings releases for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
On this news, Luckin Coffee’s ADSs plummeted more than 80% in premarket trading.
