Luckin Coffee purported to be one of China’s fastest-growing coffee retailers, in terms of number of stores and cups of coffee sold. According to its public filings with the SEC, Luckin Coffee pioneered a technology-driven new retail model to provide coffee, tea and other products with high quality, high affordability and high convenience to customers.
This morning before the opening of trading, a Special Committee brought to the attention of Luckin Coffee’s Board of Directors information indicating that, beginning in the second quarter of 2019, Mr. Jian Liu, the chief operating officer and a director of the Company, and several employees reporting to him, had engaged in certain misconduct, including fabricating certain transactions. The Special Committee recommended certain interim remedial measures, including the suspension of Mr. Jian Liu and such employees implicated in the misconduct and the suspension and termination of contracts and dealings with the parties involved in the identified fabricated transactions. The Board accepted the Special Committee’s recommendations and implemented them with respect to the currently identified individuals and parties involved in the fabricated transactions. The information identified at this preliminary stage of the internal investigation indicates that the aggregate sales amount associated with the fabricated transactions from the second quarter of 2019 to the fourth quarter of 2019 amounted to approximately $300 million US dollars.
On this news, Luckin Coffee ADSs traded as low as $4.90 per ADS after opening for trading. Luckin Coffee traded as high as $51.38 per ADS as recently as January 17, 2020.
