What is this Case About: DouYu International Holdings Limited (DOYU) Subject to Increased Enforcement Measures

According to the complaint, during the class period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Chinese government, due to concerns about issues such as video game and computer addiction, as well as content challenging its authority, could become increasingly aggressive towards DouYu regardless of how effective or sincere its attempts to comply with Chinese law were; (2) this increasingly aggressive posture subjected DouYu to a heightened risk of an investigation and subsequent government enforcement action and ultimately resulted in enforcement action; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

As information about China's plans to impose new restrictions on its live-streaming sector came to light, the price of DouYu ADSs declined, harming investors.

Then, on May 8, 2023, the CyberSpace Administration of China released a statement on its website entitled “The working group of the cyberspace department entered the Douyu platform.” This release stated, in full, “[i]in response to serious ecological problems such as pornography and vulgarity on the Douyu platform, on May 8, the State Internet Information Office instructed the Hubei Provincial Internet Information Office to send a working group to the Douyu platform to carry out a one-month centralized rectification supervision.” On this news, the Company's share price fell over 9% on May 9, 2023.
