Robbins
Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP
announces that a securities class
action case was filed on behalf of purchasers of GDS Holdings Limited
(NASDAQ:GDS) American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") between November 2,
2016 and July 31, 2018 (the "Class Period"). The first complaint was
filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York,
is captioned Allison v. GDS Holdings Ltd., No. 1:18-cv-06960, and
is assigned to Judge Castel. A second complaint was filed in the U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, is captioned Ramzan
v. GDS Holdings Ltd.
, No. 4:18-cv-00539, and is assigned to Judge
Mazzant.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any
investor who purchased GDS Holdings ADSs during the Class Period to seek
appointment as lead plaintiff. A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all
other class members in directing the litigation. The lead plaintiff can
select a law firm of its choice. An investor's ability to share in any
potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead
plaintiff. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff or have questions
concerning your rights, please contact Mary
Blasy
of Robbins Geller at 800/449-4900 or 619/231-1058, or via
e-mail at djr@rgrdlaw.com. Lead
plaintiff motions must be filed with the court no later than 60 days
from August 2, 2018.

The complaint charges GDS Holdings and certain of its officers and
directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by
issuing materially false and misleading statements and/or failing to
disclose adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and
prospects, including that the Company had overstated its utilization and
occupancy rates, had made acquisitions with related parties at inflated
prices, had used suspect capital and debt raisings despite large
off-shore cash reserves, and had adopted unorthodox accounts receivable
and payable practices. As a result of defendants' false statements
and/or omissions, GDS Holdings' ADSs traded at artificially inflated
prices of more than $45 per share during the Class Period.

On July 31, 2018, Blue Orca Capital released a report alleging that "GDS
[was] borrowing crippling amounts of debt to enrich insiders by
acquiring data centers from undisclosed related parties which [we]re not
nearly as valuable as the Company [had] claim[ed]. We believe that since
becoming a public Company, GDS has borrowed recklessly to siphon off at
least RMB 696 million to insiders by inflating the purchase price of
undisclosed related party acquisitions." Following the release of this
report, the price of the Company's ADSs declined more than 37% to close
at $21.83 per share on July 31, 2018.
