INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of Dada Nexus Limited (DADA) Investors

BENSALEM, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Dada Nexus Limited (“Dada” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: DADA) securities between May 11, 2023 and January 8, 2024, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Dada investors have until March 11, 2024 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their Dada investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to [email protected].

On December 19, 2023, Dada issued a press release announcing that its Chairman of the Board, Lijun Xin, as well as its CFO, Beck Zhaoming Chen, would both be stepping down from their roles due to personal reasons.

Then, on January 8, 2024, Dada disclosed that an internal audit had identified “certain suspicious practices” that “may cast doubt on certain revenues from the Company’s online advertising and marketing services in 2023.” The Company estimated that “approximately RMB500 million of revenues from online advertising and marketing services and RMB500 million of operations and support costs may have been overstated, respectively, for the first three quarters of 2023.” Additionally, the Company advised that its previously stated revenue guidance for the fourth quarter and full year of 2023 should “no longer be relied upon.”

On this news, Dada’s stock price fell $1.45, or 45.9%, to close at $1.71 per share on January 8, 2024, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Dada revenues from online advertising, marketing services, and operations and support costs were materially overstated; (2) as a result, Dada would need to conduct an independent review to ascertain the financial impact and the scope of suspicious practices that led to overstated revenues and costs; and (3) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

If you purchased Dada securities, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020, by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to [email protected], or visit our website at www.howardsmithlaw.com.
