On August 27, 2018, Seeking Alpha published a report on Fanhua by Seligman Investments
The report labeled Fanhua as a “questionable company” and detailed a history of alleged fraud within the Company, including accounting irregularities in the Company’s second quarter 2018 financial results. The report stated that it was “deeply concerned about the company’s business practices[,]” including its history of alleged fraud, the transferal of cash to insiders via related-party transactions, accounting discrepancies and questionable revenues and earnings.

Shares of Fanhua Inc. (NASDAQ: FANH) declined on August 27 2018 to as low as $21.90 per share.

According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Fanhua Inc. (NASDAQ: FANH) common shares between April 20, 2018 and August 27, 2018, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws.

More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between April 20, 2018 and August 27, 2018, the Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Fanhua engaged in improper business practices, including irregular accounting, that the foregoing practices were intended to benefit Company insiders and overstated Fanhua’s financial assets and performance metrics, and that as a result, Fanhua’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
