On August 28, 2018, media outlets reported that Chinese police were investigating a possible leak of client information from Huazhu, stating that nearly 500 million pieces of customer-related information, including registration information, personal data, and booking records, had emerged in an online post. On this news, the Companys share price fell $1.55 per share, or approximately 4.36%, to close at $33.98 per share on August 28, 2018.
The complaint filed in this class action 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 Companys business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company lacked adequate security measures to protect customer information; (2) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company would be susceptible to increased litigation risk and higher expenses; (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Companys goodwill would potentially suffer, leading to lower revenues; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants positive statements about the Companys business, operations, and prospects were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
