What is this Case About: Maison Solutions Inc. (MSS) Allegedly Misled Investors Regarding its Related Entities

According to the complaint, Maison held its IPO on October 5, 2023, selling 2,500,000 shares for $4.00 per share. On December 15, 2023, Hindenburg Research published a report about Maison, alleging a number of “red flags” concerning potentially illegal activities. Hindenburg reported that defendant John Xu, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, is also the President of J&C International Group (“J&C”), a company which “support[s] immigration services for high-net-worth Chinese investors,” and that J&C, John Xu and an alleged related entity, Hong Kong Supermarkets, allegedly used supermarkets as a front to defraud the EB-5 visa program. Hindenburg’s investigation further revealed that the Company may be “being pumped by WhatsApp chat rooms” with screenshots of chatrooms showing “trading plans.”

Accordingly, plaintiffs allege that defendants failed to disclose to investors (1) that the Company’s vendor XHJC Holdings Inc., is a related party and (2) that the Company’s CEO and related entities were alleged to have used supermarkets as a front to defraud the EB-5 visa program.

On this news, shares of Maison's stock fell over 83%, to close at $2.50 per share on December 15, 2023. By the time of the class action filing, the Company's stock has traded as low as $1.50 per share, a more than 62% decline from the IPO price.
