IMPORTANT SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brodsky & Smith, LLC Reminds Qudian Inc. (NYSE: QD) Shareholders That Important Deadline Nears

BALA CYNWYD, January 10, 2018 /Access Wire/ – On behalf of the Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC, notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of those who purchased or otherwise acquired Qudian Inc. (“Qudian” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: Qudian) securities between October 17, 2017 and November 20, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”).  The class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of federal securities laws.

Qudian operates online consumer finance platforms in the People’s Republic of China.  The Company offers small-sized cash credit products and merchandise credit products.

On or about October 18, 2017, Qudian completed an IPO of its securities, selling over 43 million shares to investors at $24.00 per share for gross proceeds of over $1 billion.

The lawsuit alleges that, that the documents filed in connection with Qudian’s IPO were negligently prepared, contained untrue statements of material fact, and were not prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations governing their preparation.  Among other things, the complaints allege that Qudian’s IPO documents failed to disclose that: (1) Qudian engaged into unethical business and accounting practices, (2) Qudian failed to maintain adequate control to ensure the protection and safety of its users’ personal information, and (3) consequently, Qudian was exposing detailed user data to leakages and online resale.

On November 21, 2017, Bloomberg published an article entitled, “Chinese Online Lender Qudian Reportedly Suffers Data Leak Related to Millions of Student Users.” Following that news, shares of the Company’s securities declined to as low as $12.22 per share on November 24, 2017.

If you are a member of the class described above, and suffered a financial loss during the class period, by no later than February 12, 2018 you may seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class.  Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff.
