Twersky Law Group, a highly regarded and reputable law firm based in New York, wishes to inform investors about a significant development in the form of a class action lawsuit against Sea Limited (“Sea” or “the Company) (NASDAQ: SE) and certain officers of the company. This lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all individuals and entities that held, purchased, or otherwise acquired Sea securities from April 23, 2022 through May 15, 2023 (the “Class Period”). Investors who acquired Sea securities during this defined timeframe are strongly encouraged to participate in this case by contacting email@example.com. The deadline to file a motion for appointment of lead plaintiff is September 19, 2023.
The fundamental objective of this class action lawsuit is to recover for the benefit of investors who purchased Sea securities during the Class Period, the losses they sustained as a consequence of the misleading statements made by Defendants in violation of the federal securities laws.
ALLEGATIONS AGAINST SEA LIMITED
The allegations against the Company, Sea Limited, are as follows:
Defendants have consistently asserted that these purported synergies allow the Company to grow its user base and loan book in an efficient, cost-effective manner, while managing risks impacting the Company’s profitability. The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. More specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Sea overstated its ability to manage the growth of its user base and loan book while enhancing its profitability; (ii) Sea’s expansion to a broader user base and growing loan book rendered the Company significantly more vulnerable to higher credit losses; (iii) as a result, the Company was likely to book a significant increase in loan loss reserves; (iv) the foregoing was likely to have a significant negative impact on Sea’s earnings; and (v) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On May 16, 2023, Sea issued a press release announcing its financial results for the first quarter of 2023. Among other items, Sea reported first-quarter earnings that fell significantly short of expectations due to a sharp increase in loan loss reserves. The Company advised that “[o]ur provision for credit losses increased by 120.5% to US$177.4 million in the first quarter of 2023 from US$80.5 million in the first quarter of 2022, primarily driven by expansion to a broader user base and the growth of our loan book” (emphasis added). Sea also disclosed that the Company’s previous Chief Investment Officer, David Ma, had left that role and joined the Company’s Board of Directors. On this news, Sea’s American Depositary Share (“ADS”) price fell $15.62 per ADS, or 17.74%, to close at $72.45 per ADS on May 16, 2023.
