Yalla Group Ltd. (YALA)
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Yalla Group Limited ("Yalla" or the "Company") (NYSE: YALA). The investigation concerns whether Yalla and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated federal securities laws.
On or around September 30, 2020, Yalla conducted its initial public offering (“IPO”), issuing 18.6 million American depositary shares (“ADSs”) priced at $7.50 per ADS. Then, on November 9, 2020, post-market, Yalla issued a press release announcing its unaudited financial results for the third quarter of 2020. Among other results, Yalla reported GAAP EPS of -$0.43, and costs and expenses of “$US64.7 million . . . compared with US$8.6 million in the same period last year.” Yalla stated that “[t]he increase was primarily due to the recognition of share-based compensation of US$46.5 million upon our listing on the New York Stock Exchange on September 30, 2020. We granted substantial amount of share options before the IPO but did not recognize any share-based compensation in prior periods because exercisability of the options granted was conditional upon the completion of our IPO. Upon our listing on the NYSE, we immediately recognized a substantial amount of share-based compensation expenses associated with all outstanding options that were vested as of September 30, 2020.” On this news, Yalla’s ADS price fell $2.01 per ADS, or 17.43%, to close at $9.52 per ADS on November 10, 2020.
