The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Hebron securities between April 24, 2020 and June 3, 2020 (the “Class Period”). The case, Clynes v. Hebron Technology Co., Ltd. et al., No. 1:20-cv-04420 was filed on June 9, 2020 and has been assigned to Judge Paul A. Engelmayer.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) that many of Hebron’s acquisitions, including Beijing Hengpu and Nami Holding (Cayman) Co., Ltd., involved undisclosed related parties; (2) that the Company’s disclosure controls regarding related party transactions was ineffective; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On June 3, 2020, Siegfried Eggert, CEO of Grizzly Research, presented a report alleging that Hebron is an “insider enrichment scheme without economic basis,” citing questionable transactions including an undisclosed related party transaction for nearly $26 million.
On this news, the Company's stock price fell from $22.55 per share on June 2, 2020 to $14.29 per share on June 3, 2020: a $8.26 or 36.63% drop. The stock declined a further $2.51 the following day, closing at $11.78 per share on June 4, 2020.
