On or around March 29, 2018, iQIYI conducted its initial public offering (“IPO”), issuing 125,000,000 American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) priced at $18.00 per share.
Then, on April 7, 2020, Wolfpack Research (“Wolfpack”), a global financial research and due diligence firm, published a report alleging that iQIYI “was committing fraud well before its IPO in 2018 and has continued to do so ever since.” Wolfpack estimates that the Company inflated its 2019 revenue by approximately RMB 8 billion to RMB 13 billion, or 27% to 44%, by overstating its user numbers by approximately 42% to 60%.
Following publication of the Wolfpack report, iQIYI’s ADS price fell $0.79 per share, or 4.57%, to close at $16.51 per share on April 8, 2020.
