NEW YORK, NY – April 3, 2020 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of DouYu International Holdings Limited (“DouYu” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: DOYU), a Chinese company that provides a live-streaming video-game platform.  A class action securities lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased shares in or traceable to the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”).  

On or about July 18, 2019, DouYu completed its IPO by issuing 67,387,110 American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) priced at $11.50 per ADS. 

The complaint alleges that the offering documents for the IPO failed to disclose that (1) a top streamer was actively misrepresenting herself on DouYu’s platform, (2) the costs associated with retaining top streamers was swelling, (3) DouYu did not ensure that all of its products were fully compliant with current regulatory requirements before those products became available on line, and (4) key interactive features of DouYu’s “lucky draw” were noncompliant with current regulatory requirements, requiring DouYu to remove them from operations, which negatively impacted user engagement activity and caused disappointing financial results.

According to the complaint, a series of disclosures in the months following the IPO revealed to investors that certain of DouYu's risks related to its top streamershad materialized; that the Company had failed to ensure that all of its products were fully compliant with current regulatory requirements before they became available online; and that key interactive features of DouYu's "lucky draw" were non-compliant, requiring DouYu to remove them from operations, which negatively impacted user engagement activity and caused disappointing financial results.

Since the IPO, DouYu's ADSs have traded as low as $6.11 per share,representing a decline of more than 45% from the offering price.
