NEW YORK, July 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey McKenna & Egleston announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired the securities of China XD Plastics Company Ltd. ("China XD" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CXDC) during the period between August 12, 2009 and July 10, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period"). This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants failed to disclose that: (i) China XD reports gross margins substantially higher than its main competitor, yet spends much less on research and development ("R&D"); (ii) China XD reported substantially higher revenues and net income in its SEC filings compared to filings made to the Chinese state regulatory authority known as the State Administration for Industry and Commerce ("SAIC") during the fiscal years 2008 through 2010; and (iii) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On July 10, 2014, the price of China XD common stock fell $1.17 (15%) to close at $6.48 on heavy trading volume after the release of an article by the research entity Bleeker Street Research on SeekingAlpha.com, which disclosed for the first time, among other things, that China XD reports gross margins substantially higher than its main competitor, yet spends much less on R&D, and China XD has reported higher revenues and net income in SEC filings compared to SAIC filings.
