As previously disclosed, shortly after the short-seller firm Culper Research published a report on the Company on September 28, 2023 (the “Short Seller Report”), the Company’s board of directors authorized an independent review into certain claims raised in the Short Seller Report (the “Independent Review”). The Independent Review was conducted by the audit committee of Company’s board of directors (the “Audit Committee”) with the assistance of independent professional advisors, including White & Case LLP, an international law firm as its legal advisor and FTI Consulting (China) Limited (“FTI Consulting”), a forensic accounting expert that is not related to the Company’s auditor. Under the instructions of the Audit Committee, White & Case LLP and FTI Consulting reviewed key allegations in the Short Seller Report for the relevant time period as instructed by the Audit Committee.
The Independent Review within the instructed scope has now been completed. Based on such Independent Review, the Audit Committee has concluded that the reviewed claims in the Short Seller Report were not substantiated.
