iQIYI, Inc. (IQ) Accused of Misleading Shareholders 

In March 2018, iQIYI held its initial public offering (“IPO”) offering approximately 125 million ADSs for $18 per share and raising approximately $2.25 billion in proceeds. In its Registration Statement, iQIYI touted impressive online revenue growth from 2015 to 2017 due to “increased attractiveness and efficiency of [its] advertising services.” Then, on April 7, 2020, Wolfpack Research released a report revealing iQIYI had misled investors and failed to disclose in its Registration Statement that: (i) iQIYI overstated its user numbers; (ii) iQIYI inflated its revenues; (iii) iQIYI inflated its expenses and prices of assets to conceal its revenue inflation; and (iv) iQIYI’s misleading financial reporting created the appearance of a cash generative company. The report concluded “[iQIYI] was committing fraud well before its IPO in 2018 and has continued to do so ever since.” On this news, ADSs of iQIYI fell almost 6% to close at $16.51 per ADS.
