TAL Education Group (TAL) Securities Class Action:

The lawsuit focuses on TAL’s and senior management’s statements assuring investors about the legitimacy of TAL’s revenues and business practices.

According to the complaint, defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) TAL’s revenue and operational growth was the result of deceptive marketing tactics and business practices that flouted PRC laws, regulations and policies; (2) TAL used misleading and fraudulent advertising, including provision of false and misleading discount information designed to obfuscate the true cost of TAL’s programs to customers, fake customer reviews to lure customers to TAL programs, misrepresentation of teacher qualifications and course qualities, and marketing of rigged promotional events; (3) TAL defied PRC policies designed to alleviate the burden on students and their families, including imposing hefty advances and recurring debt payments on enrollees; and (4) as a result, TAL was subject to an extreme risk of enforcement actions, regulatory fines and penalties, and the imposition of rules and regulations adverse to TAL’s business.

Beginning in Mar. 2021, news reports revealed the PRC held sessions aimed at more strictly regulating the online education industry to combat fee scams and market abuse by large players such as TAL, and PRC regulators ordered a large state broadcaster to remove TV commercials from TAL and fined TAL and others for faking teacher qualifications, exaggerating training effects, and faking user reviews. By July 23, 2021, the PRC banned companies that teach school curriculum from making profits, raising capital, or going public.

These events drove the price of TAL American Depositary Shares sharply lower.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving defendants lied about TAL’s practices and the sustainability of its business,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
