On March 23, 2020, Hindenburg Research published a report revealing that HF Foods had, among other things, failed to disclose: (i) transactions with related-parties; (ii) its flagrant misuse of shareholder funds; and (iii) its gaming of the FTSE/Russell Index criteria.
On this news, shares of HF Foods' fell $2.52 per share, or over 20%, to close at $9.80 per share on March 23, 2020, damaging investors.
