On November 16, 2017, Jianpu conducted its initial public offering of American depositary shares at a price of $8.00 per share.
On November 21, 2017, however, Chinese regulators banned the issuance of new online peer-to-peer licenses, citing improper and illegal practices by lenders such as Qudian and PPDAI. On this news, Jianpus share price fell more than 30%, to close at just $4.90 per share on Nov. 24, 2017, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Prior to Jianpus IPO in 2017, the China Banking Regulatory Commission and other regulators issued rules in 2016 requiring peer-to-peer (P2P) lending companies to appoint institutional banking custodians and disclose usage of deposits. The country also set out to create the Financial Stability and Development Committee to oversee reform and industry policy. These government changes combined to result in a large reduction in the number of current and potential peer-to-peer lending providers, the main source of Jianpus revenue. Based on these facts, Jianpus public comments and the Companys IPO Registration Statement were false and materially misleading.
