The action, captioned In re Luckin Coffee, Inc. Securities Litigation, Case No. 1:20-CV-01293-JPC-JLC (S.D.N.Y.) (“Action”), was brought in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (“Court”). The Action alleged that Defendants violated the federal securities laws by making false and misleading statements and omissions regarding, among other things, Luckin’s operating expenses and financial reports. Luckin has denied and continues to deny the claims and allegations asserted against it and the other Defendants in the Action.
The Court-appointed Class Representatives, Sjunde AP-Fonden and Louisiana Sheriffs’ Pension & Relief Fund, on behalf of themselves and the Class, have settled the Action with Luckin Coffee, Inc. ("Luckin") for $175,000,000 in cash ("Settlement"). The Settlement resolves all claims in the Action.
On July 22, 2022, the Court held a hearing to consider final approval of the Settlement and related matters. At the hearing, the Court approved the Settlement and Plan of Allocation and Class Counsel’s motion for attorneys’ fees and expenses. Following the hearing, the Court entered a final Judgment approving the Settlement and orders approving the Plan of Allocation and awarding attorney's fees and litigation expenses.
