The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, the Defendants failed to disclose that the Company had used a distribution partner, Jiangsu UTP Supply Chain, to artificially inflate the Company’s sales and gross margins in the important Chinese market, and that as a result of this adverse information being withheld from the market, the price of the Company’s stock was artificially inflated during the Class Period.

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.
