RLX purports to be the “No. 1 branded e-vapor company in China,” which the Company claims is its “largest potential market.”
In January 2021, RLX conducted its initial public offering (the “IPO”), selling approximately 116.5 million American Depositary Shares (“ADSs” or “shares”) at $12 per ADS, raising approximately $1.4 billion in gross proceeds.
On March 22, 2021, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology posted draft regulations confirming that e-cigarettes and new tobacco products would be regulated similar to traditional tobacco offerings.
On this news, RLX’s share price fell $9.31, or 48%, to close at $10.15 per share on March 22, 2021, thereby injuring investors.
Then, on June 2, 2021, the Company announced its first quarter 2021 financial results, reporting only a 48% increase in net revenues quarter over quarter, and second quarter guidance suggesting that its gross margin would “remain steady.”
On this news, RLX’s share price fell $0.97, or nearly 9%, to close at $9.90 per share on June 4, 2021, thereby damaging investors further. The Company’s shares have traded as low as $7.89 per ADS, or 32% below the IPO price.
Whistleblower Notice: Persons with non-public information regarding RLX should consider their options to aid the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower Program. Under the program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC. For more information, call Charles H.
