Filing Date: August 21, 2018

According to the Complaint, Pinduoduo Inc. ("Pinduoduo" or the "Company") is an e-commerce platform allowing users to participate in group buying deals. The Company was founded in 2015 and is based in Shanghai, China. On or around July 26, 2018, Pinduoduo completed its IPO, offering 85.6 million ADSs priced at $19.00 per share and raising $1.63 billion.

The Complaint 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. In the Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with Pinduoduo’s IPO, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Pinduoduo’s controls were ineffective to prevent third-party vendors from selling counterfeit goods on the Company’s online platform; (ii) consequently, Pinduoduo’s revenues and the number of active merchants using its platform were traceable in part to unlawful conduct and thus unsustainable; and (iii) as a result, Pinduoduo’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On December 4, 2018, the Court issued an Order appointing Co-Lead Plaintiffs and Counsel. On January 11, 2019, the Court issued an Order consolidating cases.

About the Company & Securities Data

"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
