Hesai Group (HSAI) Failed to Disclose that Margins Might Decrease Because of a Lower “In-House Plant Capacity Utilization Rate”

A shareholder filed a class action on behalf of persons or entities who purchased or acquired Hesai Group (NASDAQ: HSAI) pursuant and/or traceable to the registration statement and related prospectus issued in connection with the Company’s February 2023 initial public offering (“IPO”). The complaint alleges violations of the Securities Act of 1933. Hesai Group purports to be “the global leader in three-dimensional light detection and ranging (LiDAR) solutions.”

According to the complaint, while the Company stated that margins may decrease, the registration statement issued in support of the Company’s IPO failed to disclose the extent to which it might decrease or that its gross margin decrease was caused by a lower in-house utilization rate. Further, Hesai Group’s gross margin was 30% for the fourth quarter—which was completed over a month before the date of the amended registration statement.

Since the IPO, and as a result of the disclosure of material adverse facts omitted from Hesai Group’s registration statement, Hesai Group’s ADS price has fallen substantially below its IPO price, damaging class members. As of April 6, 2023, Hesai Group’s ADSs closed at $12.17, a 35.9% decline from the IPO price.
