On March 18, 2021, Tuya conducted its IPO, selling over 45 million ADSs at $21 per ADS.
On May 11, 2021, an article on techcrunch.com reported that “several top Chinese sellers” had “disappeared from Amazon,” and that over 13.1 million records documenting a fake review scam had been uncovered, with more than 200,000 Amazon accounts.
Then, on July 9, 2021, verdict.co.uk revealed that, in an attempt to crack down against paid reviews and other violations, Amazon had banned hundreds of Chinese brands across thousands of sellers’ accounts, many of which were clients of Tuya.
Then, on August 18, 2021, Tuya reported disappointing financial results for second quarter 2021. During the related conference call, the Company attributed the results to a “series of challenges” affecting its customers, “including Amazon's strict execution of seller policy, rising raw material prices and shortage of semiconductor components.”
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $1.74, or 14%, to close at $10.41 per ADS on August 19, 2021. By August 2022, Tuya ADSs had dropped below $2 per ADS, 90% below the IPO price.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired Tuya ADSs pursuant and/or traceable to the IPO, you may move the Court no later than October 11, 2022 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
