China Auto Logistics Inc.

iQIYI, Inc.

China Auto Logistics Inc. shares closed up 5.33% yesterday but gave back more than half of those gains in after-hours trading. The stock soared as Barna Capital acquired additional 5.5% in the Chinese auto logistics provider and intends to push for its privatization. After this transaction, Barna Capital now holds 25% stake in the top seller in China of luxury imported automobiles and a leading provider of auto-related services. Barna Capital wants to be actively involved in Company's operations by taking a seat on the company's board. Barna intends to push China Auto to either pay dividends or repurchase stocks as the Company’s NAV (Net asset value) is higher than the market cap. Its "ultimate goal," Barna Capital stated, "is to have management either take the company private or sell the company altogether." China Auto has been under investigation for related party transaction, and therefore has neither released its financial statement for the past two quarters, nor its annual report for 2017. This delay has resulted in the company's non-compliance with Nasdaq's continued listing requirements. It was last month that the Company announced that it had submitted a plan to Nasdaq detailing how the Company plans to regain compliance with Nasdaq's continued listing requirements. If the plan is rejected, China Auto Logistics will be able to appeal the decision to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel. It was at the end of last month that Pawar Law Group announced that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of shareholders who purchased shares of China Auto Logistics Inc. According to the press release, the lawsuit says that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) China Auto failed to maintain adequate internal controls over identifying and reporting certain relationships and related transactions; and (2) as a result, defendants' public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. The company faces several lawsuits from different firms.
