Gridsum is a holding company that designs and develops sophisticated data analysis software for multinational and domestic enterprises and government agencies in China.  The Company offers software that allows customers to collect and analyze information that is collected, indexed, and stored in an organized manner.

The filed Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

  • Gridsum lacked effective internal control over financial reporting;
     
  • consequently, Gridsum’s financial statements were inaccurate and misleading, and did not fairly present, in all material respects, the financial condition and results of operations of the Company; and
     
  • as a result of the foregoing, Gridsum’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On April 23, 2018, Gridsum issued a press release entitled “Gridsum Reports Suspension of Audit Report on Financial Statements,” announcing that its “audit report for the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2016 should no longer be relied upon.” 

According to the press release, Gridsum’s auditor identified certain issues in conducting its audit of Gridsum’s financial results for the year ended December 31, 2017.  Those issues related to “certain revenue recognition, cash flow, cost, expense items, and their underlying documentation which [the auditor] had previously raised” with Gridsum. 

On this news, Gridsum’s American Depositary Receipt fell $1.17, or 16.04%, to close at $6.12 on April 23, 2018.
