NEW YORK, October 9, 2020 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized shareholder rights law firm, is investigating potential claims against ACM Research, Inc. (“ACMR”) (NASDAQ: ACMR) on behalf of ACMR stockholders. Our investigation concerns whether ACMR has violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.
ACMR and senior management have repeatedly assured investors of the adequacy of the company’s internal controls over financial reporting and repeatedly touted its revenue and earnings growth.
But, on Oct. 8, 2020, J Capital Research published a report, entitled “Dirty business,” bringing all of management’s prior statements into serious question.
More specifically, J Capital concludes ACMR is a fraud, over-reporting both revenue and profit. According to the report, “ACMR reports industry-beating gross margins of 47%” but “[w]e believe the real gross margins are half at best.” J Capital also concludes revenues are overstated by 15-20%, undisclosed related parties are diverting revenue and profit from the company, the key means by which ACMR tunnels over-reported profit out of the company may be through about $20 million in overstated inventory and through cash that is inflated or compromised, and warranty and service costs are understated by at least $11 million.
On this news, ACMR’s share price declined sharply on Oct. 8, 2020, to close at $66.23 per share
