The investigation focuses on whether certain individuals violated federal securities laws by, among other things, failing to disclose that: (1) the Company’s ability to produce the plant product tonnage was inconsistent with the tonnage the Company had reported to the SEC and investors as shipments of sales in its financial results; (2) by including unearned revenue the Company’s reported financial statements were grossly inflated; and (3) the rate of growth of the Company’s business was inconsistent with what it had reported.
On May 9, 2011, the Company announced its financial results for its first quarter 2011, including reported revenue of $50.2 million and net income of $8.4 million. On May 11, 2011, Seeking Alpha issued an article entitled “Yongye International’s Reported Production: SEC Filings Raise Red Flags.” The article concluded that an analysis of Yongye’s SEC filings show that the Company “could not have produced, and therefore sold, the reported plant product tonnages given the [C]ompany’s stated manufacturing capacity and shipments.” After this news hit the market, Yongye’s stock fell to $4.85 per share on May 12, 2011 from $5.19 per share on May 10, 2011.
