Allegations in the 17 Education & Technology Class Action Lawsuit

17 Education & Technology offered tutoring services related to academic subjects to students from kindergarten through the last year of senior high school (“K-12 Academic AST Services”) in the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”). On December 4, 2020, 17 Education & Technology held its IPO, issuing approximately 27,400,000 American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) to the investing public at $10.50 per ADS, pursuant to the Registration Statement.

PRC authorities have been targeting private education companies and tutoring companies, especially including those that are Western-financed, for reform publicly since at least February 2019. In January 2021, the month after the IPO, Chinese authorities publicly made clear within the PRC, again, that they would reform the private tutoring industry in which 17 Education & Technology operated. In doing so, for example, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the highest internal enforcement division of the Chinese Communist Party, and the National Supervision Commission of the PRC released an article warning about reforms of abuses by private education companies. In light of the proposed, discussed, and enacted reforms from and connected to the 2018-2022 plan for modernizing Chinese education, several other Chinese education technology firms, including VIPKid, Huohua Siwei, Zuoyebang, and Yuanfudao, reportedly scrapped or postponed plans for initial public offerings.

The 17 Education & Technology Group class action lawsuit alleges that the IPO’s Registration Statement was false and/or misleading and/or failed to disclose that: (i) 17 Education & Technology’s K-12 Academic AST Services would end less than a year after the IPO; and (ii) as part of its ongoing regulatory efforts, Chinese authorities would imminently curtail and/or end 17 Education & Technology’s core business.

On July 23, 2021, mere months after the IPO, Chinese authorities formally revealed to the public continued regulations which banned after-school tutoring companies that teach the school curriculum from making profits, raising capital, or going public. These measures formally ended any potential growth in the for-profit tutoring sector in the PRC.

As of July 13, 2022, the price of 17 Education & Technology ADS has fallen by approximately 85% from the $10.50 IPO price, as investors sussered losses in 17 Education & Technology.
