NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, continues to investigate potential securities claims on behalf of shareholders of Huazhu Group Limited (NASDAQ: HTHT) resulting from allegations that Huazhu may have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public.
SO WHAT: If you purchased Huazhu securities you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement. The Rosen Law firm is preparing a class action seeking recovery of investor losses.

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT: On September 21, 2020, Bonitas Research issued a report on the Company which alleged that Huazhu “lied about the ownership of its hotel portfolio to produce fake financials.” The report also stated that Bonitas’ fieldwork “confirmed that Huazhu secretly supported operating costs of franchisee hotels owned by undisclosed current Huazhu employees & other undisclosed related parties (‘off-book hotels’).” Bonitas further asserted that it “believe[s] that Huazhu concealed operating expenses using undisclosed related party transactions to artificially inflate Huazhu’s reported profits[,]” and that it “calculate[s] that Huazhu’s fake profits manifested as RMB 2 billion (US$ 300 million) of fake PP&E on its CYE’19 balance sheet.”
On this news, Huazhu’s American Depositary Share ("ADS") price fell $1.54, or over 3%, to close at $40.48 per ADS on September 21, 2020, thereby injuring investors.
