NEW YORK, Aug. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Hebron Technology Co., Ltd. (“Hebron” or the “Company”)(NASDAQ: HEBT) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and indexed under 20-cv-04746, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants who purchased or otherwise acquired Hebron securities between April 24, 2020, and June 3, 2020, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). Plaintiff pursues claims against the Defendants under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).
If you are a shareholder who purchased Hebron securities during the class period, you have until August 7, 2020, to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.

Hebron conducts equipment and engineering service operations focusing on the research, development and manufacture of fluid equipment including valves, pipe fittings and others. Since July 2019, the Company has also provided financial advisory service operations.
The complaint 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 Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (i) many of Hebron’s acquisitions, including Beijing Hengpu and Nami Holding (Cayman) Co., Ltd., involved undisclosed related parties; (ii) the Company’s disclosure controls regarding related party transactions was ineffective; and (iii) 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, 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 share price fell $8.26, or nearly 37%, to close at $14.29 per share on June 3, 2020, on unusually heavy trading volume. The stock continued to decline the next trading session by $2.51, or nearly 18%, to close at $11.78 per share on June 4, 2020, on unusually heavy trading volume.
