GigaCloud Technology Faces Securities Class Action Lawsuit, Prompting Investor Protection
GigaCloud Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: GCT), a prominent player in the technology industry, is currently facing a federal securities class action lawsuit. The renowned national securities law firm, Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, is investigating potential claims against the company and reminding investors of the upcoming deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The complaint, filed in this class action, alleges that GigaCloud made materially false and misleading statements in its Registration Statement and throughout the Class Period, while failing to disclose material adverse facts about the company’s business, operations, and prospects. These alleged omissions include the company’s overstated last-mile operations, undisclosed related party transactions, and the overstatement of its financial results.
In August 2022, GigaCloud conducted its initial public offering (IPO), generating net proceeds of approximately $34.2 million. However, on September 28, 2023, Culper Research published a report highlighting several concerns regarding GigaCloud’s public reporting. The report claimed that the company’s staffing and activity levels at its warehouses were significantly lower than publicly claimed. Additionally, Culper Research alleged that GigaCloud utilized photoshopped stock photos in its marketing materials to portray a more efficient and growing operation.
Following the release of the report, GigaCloud’s share price experienced a decline of $1.78, or 18%, closing at $7.69 per share on September 28, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume.
Investors who purchased or acquired GigaCloud securities during the specified period are encouraged to contact Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP to discuss their legal rights. The law firm is dedicated to protecting the interests of investors and is actively seeking the role of lead plaintiff in the class action.
It is important to note that the court-appointed lead plaintiff represents the investor with the largest financial interest in the relief sought by the class. However, any member of the putative class may choose to move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice or remain an absent class member without affecting their ability to share in any potential recovery.
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP also encourages individuals with information regarding GigaCloud’s conduct, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders, and others, to come forward and contact the firm. All communications will be treated confidentially.
