Luckin Coffee Shares plummets after a $310 million financial scandal

Luckin Coffee Inc., considered to be Starbucks China’s challenger, saw shares plummet 75.6% in Thursday trading after a special committee of three independent directors investigated “misconduct, including fabrication of certain transactions” that spanned during the 2nd to 4th quarters of 2019.

The special committee has discovered Jian Liu, Luckin Coffee COO and Founder and Employees reporting to him fabricated sales adding up to 2.2 billion yuan ($310 million).

“As a result of the investigation, Investors should no longer rely upon the Company’s previous financial statements and earning releases for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and the two quarters starting April 1, 2019 and ended September 30, 2019, including the prior guidance on net revenues from products for the 4th quarter of 2019, and other communications relating to these consolidated financial statements,” Luckin Coffee said in a statement released recently.

The company has since suspended the individuals involved in the misconduct and will pursue legal action against them.
