SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges EHang Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: EH) investors who suffered substantial losses to submit your losses now.
EHang Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: EH) Investigation:
The investigation focuses on the propriety of EHang’s statements concerning the business prospects for its electric vertical take-off and landing (“eVTOL”) aircraft.
On Nov. 7, 2023, Hindenburg Research published a scathing report entitled “EHang: Hollow Order Book And Fake Sales Make This China-Based eVTOL Company Last In Line For Takeoff.” The report concludes, “[o]verall, EHang seems to have a major credibility issue – whether it be by fluffing up its preorder book (which looks to almost entirely be vapor) or by brazenly misleading about early sales that bear all the hallmarks of fake revenue.”
Hindenburg first explained that EHang’s share price has surged, in part, due to “a recently granted aircraft design certification from the Chinese government, and a 1,300+ unit pre-order book, suggest[ing] imminent largescale revenue.”
Hindenburg found that: (1) “EHang’s much-touted, recently granted certification comes with numerous flight restrictions that it has failed to fully disclose to investors[;]” (2) “[t]he restrictions invalidate the bulk of its commercial use cases[;]” and (3) “EHang’s flagship aircraft would need a billion-dollar redesign and an entirely different class of certification to avoid the limitations.”
Hindenburg further found that “92+% of EHang’s claimed 1,300+ unit preorder book is based on ‘dead’ or ‘abandoned’ deals, failed partnerships, and newly-formed customer entities with no discernible operations.” As one example, Hindenburg observes that EHang’s largest deal is a 1,000 unit preorder from one of its pre-IPO investors (United Therapeutics) but that United is looking for aircraft with a 250 nautical range versus the 19-mile range offered by EHang. Hindenburg also quotes a United executive as saying “‘I don’t think anyone could say right now that they [Ehang] have a certifiable configuration in terms of aircraft design.’”
In response, the price of EHang American Depositary Shares closed sharply lower on Nov. 7, 2023.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and are investigating whether EHang may have misled investors about whether its purported 1300+ preorder book could possibly translate into actual sales revenues,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
