ZTO Express (Cayman) Inc. (ZTO)
Hagens Berman was appointed lead counsel on November 13, 2017.
Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro has filed an amended complaint against ZTO Express (Cayman) Inc. (NYSE: ZTO) and their affiliates on behalf of those who purchased or otherwise acquired ZTO American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) issued in connection with ZTO’s October 2016 initial public stock offering of approximately $1.4 billion ADSs.
Investors who suffered losses are encouraged to contact attorney Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing ZTO@hbsslaw.com.
On or about October 27, 2016, Defendants priced the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) for the issuance of approximately 72 million ADSs at $19.50 per share. Since then, the price of ZTO shares has fallen nearly 25% to close at $14.64 on September 25, 2017.
The lawsuits allege that the IPO Registration Statement and Prospectus touted purported advantages of ZTO’s “network partner” and “shared success” business model but omitted disclosing that, two quarters before the IPO, ZTO lowered its network transit fees to subsidize its network partners in response to increased operating costs, pricing pressure, competition and other negative market conditions.
“Among other things, we’re focused on are the Defendants’ omissions of pre-IPO facts that, when they surfaced after the IPO, appear to have severely damaged ZTO investors,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding ZTO should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program. Under the new SEC whistleblower program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
