The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of ZTO Express (Cayman), Inc. (NYSE: ZTO) ("ZTO" or the "Company") American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") issued in connection with the Company's October 27, 2016 initial public stock offering ("IPO"). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until October 16, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in ZTO's October 27, 2016 IPO. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Act of 1933 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose in connection with the October 27, 2016 IPO that the Company was improperly inflating its stated profit margins by keeping certain low-margin segments of its business out of its financial statements.

At the time of the filing of a complaint against the Company on August 14, 2017 asserting these allegations, the value of ZTO American depositary shares declined significantly.
