This lawsuit is for anyone who acquired securities in BlueCity Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: BLCT) from July 5, 2020 through July 19, 2021.
The lawsuit alleges that the Company and certain of its executives violated federal law. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that, in the Prospectus to the Company's IPO, the Company misled investors regarding its financial condition. More specifically, the lawsuit alleges that the Company misled investors by failing to tell investors that the Company was ill-equipped to handle costs related to the expected post IPO expansion.
On December 2, 2020, BlueCity reported its third quarter and fiscal year 2020 results, disclosing, among other results, that the Company's cost of revenues had increased 41.4% year-over-year, selling and marketing expenses had increased 86.3% year-over-year, technology and development expenses had increased 49.5% year-over-year, and general and administrative expenses had increased 4,349% year-over-year. On this news, the Company's share price dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume. Then, on March 23, 2021, BlueCity reported its results for the fourth quarter of 2020, disclosing, among other results, revenue of $42.7 million, missing consensus estimates by $3.92 million. As a result, the stock price again dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume and, at the time of this lawsuit, trades at a lower price than it did at the time of the Company's IPO.
