On July 31, 2018, Blue Orca Capital published a report alleging that GDS is borrowing crippling amounts of debt to enrich insiders by acquiring data centers from undisclosed related parties which are not nearly as valuable as the Company claims. On this news, the Companys share price fell $12.92, or more than 37%, to close at $21.83 per share on July 31, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) GDS Holdings overstated the value of certain data centers it had acquired; (2) GDS Holdings failed to maintain adequate internal controls; and (3) as a result, defendants statements about GDS Holdings business, operations, and prospects were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
If you purchased shares of GDS during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than October 1, 2018 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
