According to the suit, CCCR mislead investors about its involvement in risky loans and loan guarantee obligations. In a February 18, 2014 Forbes article, CCCR's CEO was quoted as saying that "[highly risky loans] among microcredit companies [in China] are not widespread." On May 9, 2014, in a public offering, CCCR sold 1,650,386 of its shares at $3.99 per share, with net proceeds to it of $6.14 million. In the prospectus, dated May 8, 2014, CCCR represented that it estimates loss on its guarantee business to be about 1% of the contract amount.
On July 25, 2014, CCCR issued a press release stating that (a) it had paid out $5.4 million in loan guarantees in Q1 2014, and had received only $0.7 million in cash and $2.1 million in one-year notes from the borrowers, and (b) it had paid out $3.7 million in guarantees in Q2 2014, of which it had only recovered $1.1 million, and converted $1.6 million of it to one-year notes. On this news, CCCR's stock price fell $1.20, or 32%, damaging investors.
