Request more information now by clicking here: www.faruqilaw.com/HRBN On June 16, 2011, shares of Harbin declined over 50 percent to close at $6.98 per share on extremely heavy trading after Citron Research (“Citron”) alleged the Company was committing fraud on its U.S. investors. In the note, Citron said it has “hundreds of pages of SAIC documents – the in-country filings of Harbin’s subsidiaries over the years. These documents do not even remotely resemble the company that Harbin portrays to US investors in its SEC filings.” This follows an earlier note in June which raised questions about a $400 million credit agreement between Harbin’s Chief Executive Officer and China Development Bank to finance a buyout of Harbin.
