Lead Plaintiff Deadline:  June 15, 2020

On April 6, 2020, iAnthus disclosed that it had failed to make certain interest payments, citing the "decline in the overall public equity cannabis markets, coupled with the extraordinary market conditions that began in Q1 2020 due to the novel coronavirus." iAnthus also revealed an internal investigation regarding related party transactions involving the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Hadley Ford.

On this news, the Company's share price fell $0.29, or over 62%, to close at $0.179 per share on April 6, 2020, on unusually heavy trading volume.

The complaint alleges that iAnthus failed to disclose that they had the ability to withhold use of the interest payment escrow or that the interest escrow payment was exhausted, diminished, or otherwise unavailable to satisfy the Company's March 31, 2020 interest payment obligations.

On February 25, 2020, Grizzly Research published a report alleging, among other things, that the Company "has been drastically overstating its profitability in its US public filings, especially for 2018" and that Grizzly Research had "found multiple strong indications of past and current order ‘brushing,'" which are "essentially fake student enrollments to boost student count."

On this news, the price of GSX's American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") fell $1.33, or nearly 3%, to close at $44.09 per share on February 25, 2020.

Then, on April 14, 2020, Citron Research issued a report entitled "GSX Techedu Inc – The Most Blatant Chinese Stock Fraud since 2011," alleging that the Company "is overstating revenue by up to 70% and should immediately halt trading and launch an internal investigation."
