The complaint charges CNinsure and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. CNinsure, together with its subsidiaries, provides insurance brokerage and agency services, and insurance claims adjusting services in the People’s Republic of China.
The complaint alleges that, during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business and prospects. Specifically, defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose the following adverse facts: (a) that the Company was materially overstating its net income by understating the costs associated with the Company’s scorecard system; (b) that the Company failed to account for incentives provided to the Company’s agents as costs since those incentives were reasonably likely to be tendered at a future date; and (c) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company and its prospects.
