JA Solar Accused of Depressing Stock Value Before Going Private

According to the complaint, JA Solar engaged in a scheme to deceive the market and artificially deflate the price of its stock by failing to disclose relevant facts. On November 17, 2017, JA Solar entered into an agreement and plan of merger. The Proposed Transaction implied a total equity value for JA Solar of $362.1 million. The merger was approved by shareholder vote on March 12, 2018, and closed on July 16, 2018. A mere three days later, it was revealed that JA Solar would be acquired by Tianye Tonglian in a reverse merger, allowing JA Solar to return to the stock market by relisting on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange at a multiple. JA Solar failed to disclose that it had plans to relist its shares in China prior to closing the transaction and delisting from the NASDAQ. As a result, shareholders unknowingly, and to their detriment, sold their shares at a depressed price.
