NQ Mobile is a company incorporated in the Cayman Islands, with headquarters in Beijing, China. The Company was founded in 2005, and purports to provide mobile internet services in the areas of privacy, mobile security, personalized cloud, productivity, and family protection. The Company offers a variety of products such as NQ Mobile Vault, NQ Mobile Call Blocker, and NQ Space.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made 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 and/or misrepresented adverse facts, including that: (1) errors existed in NQ Mobile's revenue recognition practices; (2) NQ Mobile lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the NQ Mobile's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On October 24, 2013, Muddy Waters Research issued a report (the "Report") that asserted that NQ Mobile has greatly overstated its true financial performance. The report alleges, among other matters, that at least 72% of NQ Mobile's purported China security revenue is fictitious. The Report continues to allege that NQ Mobile is its own largest customer and its actual market share in China is approximately 1.5%, rather than the 55% claimed by the Company. The Report questions the accuracy and veracity of NQ Mobile's cash balances, its reported international revenue and its financial statements filed with the State Administration for Industry & Commerce of the People's Republic of China and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
On this news, shares of NQ Mobile fell $10.79 per share, more than 47.16% on intraday trading on October 24, 2013.
