BENSALEM, Pa., May 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ --
Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that investors with substantial losses have opportunity to lead the securities fraud class action lawsuit against Hesai Group ("Hesai" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: hsai ).
Class Period: February 2023 IPO
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 6, 2023
Investors suffering losses on their Hesai investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to [email protected] .
In February 2023, Hesai conducted its IPO, selling approximately 10 million American Depository Shares ("ADSs") at $19.00 per ADS.
The next month, on March 16, 2023, Hesai issued a press release announcing its unaudited fourth quarter and full year 2022 financial results. Therein, the Company revealed that in the final quarter before its IPO, the Company experienced a decrease in its gross margin due to "the increased shipments of lower-margin ADAS LiDAR products during the early ramp-up stage with lower in-house plant capacity utilization rate."
On this news, Hesai's share price fell $1.55, or 10.2%, to close at $13.69 per share on March 16, 2023, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed alleges that Defendants failed to disclose to investors
that: (1) Hesai Group's gross margin decrease was caused by a lower in-house utilization rate; (2) Hesai Group's gross margin was 30% for the fourth quarter-which was completed over a month before the date of the amended registration statement; and (3) as a result, Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
