In December 2017, LexinFintech completed its IPO, selling 12 million ADSs at $9.00 per share.
On August 25, 2020, Grizzly Research issued a report, alleging, among other things, that LexinFintech is "reporting artificially low delinquency rates by essentially giving borrowers who are already in default new funds to make payments" and that the Company engaged in undisclosed related party transactions. The report also questioned the Company's purported growth, citing a review of LexinFintech's web traffic.
On this news, the Company's share price fell $0.47, or 5%, to close at $8.04 per share on August 25, 2020, thereby damaging investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) LexinFintech reported artificially low delinquency rates by giving borrowers in default new funds to make payments; (2) the Company's business model exposes shareholders to enormous losses by prioritizing Chinese lenders for off-balance sheet loans; (3) the Company exaggerated its user base; (4) the Company was facilitating direct peer to peer lending contrary to Chinese law; (5) the Company engaged in undisclosed related party transactions; (6) the Company lacked adequate internal controls; and (7) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
