CASE ALLEGATIONS: NIO designs, develops, manufactures, and sells smart electric vehicles.  It purports to differentiate itself through technological breakthroughs and innovations, such as its battery swapping technologies (i.e., Battery as a Service) and proprietary autonomous driving technologies, including Autonomous Driving as a Service.

The NIO class action lawsuit alleges that defendants failed to disclose that: (i) NIO pulled forward revenue by selling batteries to a related party, which owned the batteries and managed users’ subscriptions; (ii) through the related party, NIO also recognized enormous depreciation savings; and (iii) as a result, NIO’s revenue and net loss were overstated.

On June 28, 2022, Grizzly Research LLC published a report alleging, among other things, that NIO inflated its net income by about 95% through sales to a related party, Wuhan Weineng Battery Asset Co. Ltd. (“Weineng”).  On this news, the price of NIO American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) fell approximately 2.5%.

Then, on July 11, 2022, NIO announced that it formed a special committee to oversee an investigation into the allegations in the Grizzly Research report.  On this news, the price of NIO ADSs fell by nearly 9%, further damaging investors.

THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired NIO securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.  A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.  A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the NIO class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the NIO class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff of the NIO class action lawsuit.
