Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (Scott+Scott), a national shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Jianpu Technology Inc. (Jianpu or the Company) (NYSE: JT) and other defendants, related to alleged violations of federal securities laws. If you purchased Jianpu American Depository Shares (ADS) in and/or traceable to the Companys initial public offering (the IPO) on or about November 16, 2017, you are encouraged to contact a Scott+Scott attorney at (844) 818-6982 for more information.
Jianpu is a Chinese fintech company (termed the Bankrate of China) that primarily generates revenue though a mobile platform that recommends loans underwritten by Chinese subprime lenders, such as Qudian Inc. (Qudian), PPDAI Group Inc. (PPDAI), and others.
Jianpu held its IPO on November 16, 2017, at $8.00 per share. Just two business days later, on November 21, 2017, Chinese regulators issued an administrative order banning the issuance of new online peer-to-peer lending licenses, citing improper and illegal practices by typical Jianpu lenders such as Qudian and PPDAI, including extremely high-interest rates, illegal collections, and lack of risk management.
On this news, the price of Jianpu ADS dropped over 33%, from a close of $7.40 per share on November 20, 2017 down to a close of $4.90 per share on Nov. 24, 2017.
