The information contained on this website is only a summary of information presented in more detail in the Notice of Pendency and Proposed Settlement of Class Action which you can access by clicking here. Because this website is just a summary, you should review the Notice for additional details.
Please read the Notice carefully. Your rights will be affected by the legal proceedings in this action.
IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR A SETTLEMENT PAYMENT, YOU MUST TIMELY SUBMIT A PROOF OF CLAIM AND RELEASE FORM (“PROOF OF CLAIM”) BY DECEMBER 2, 2021.
• The estimated average recovery is $0.45 per ADS (before the deduction of any Court-approved fees, expenses, and costs as described herein) for the approximately 20.2 million affected PPDAI ADSs. This is not an estimate of the actual recovery per ADS you should expect. Your actual recovery, if any, will depend on the aggregate losses of all Settlement Class Members, the date(s) you purchased, acquired and sold PPDAI ADSs, the purchase, acquisition and sales prices, and the total number and amount of claims filed.
• Plaintiffs’ Counsel have been prosecuting the Actions on a wholly contingent basis since their inception, have not received any payment of attorneys’ fees for their representation of the Settlement Class, and have advanced the funds to pay expenses necessarily incurred to prosecute the Actions. Plaintiffs’ Counsel will apply to the Court to award attorneys’ fees in an amount not to exceed 33⅓% of the Settlement Fund. In addition, Plaintiffs’ Counsel will seek no more than $110,000 in litigation expenses, as well as an application for reimbursement of the reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Plaintiffs of no more than $2,000 each directly related to their representation of the Settlement Class. The estimated average cost for such fees and expenses, if the Court approves Plaintiffs’ Counsel’s fee and expense application, is $0.15 per affected PPDAI ADS.
