Background on the Tuya Inc. Securities Class Action

Tuya is a China based technology company that developed and offers a purpose-built “Internet of Things” (“IoTs”) cloud platform that delivers offerings that include Platform-as-a-Service (“PaaS”) and Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) to business and developers. Tuya’s products and services enable so-called “smart devices,” e.g., household items and appliances connected to the internet, to communicate and interact with end uses and online information and services.

The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the IPO Registration Statement was negligently prepared and included false and/or misleading statements of material fact because it failed to disclose that: (i) a material portion of Tuya’s China-based customers were engaged in widespread illicit activities such as systematic manipulation of reviews and product offerings in violation of Amazon.com ’s terms of use; (ii) prior to the IPO, a consumer investigation and data breach had exposed an illicit fake review scheme being perpetrated by Tuya’s clients, among others, which included, in pertinent part, the exposure of 13 million records of organized fake review scams linked to over 200,000 Amazon account profiles; (iii) there was a substantial risk that a material portion of Tuya’s significant customers would be barred from using Amazon’s platform as a result of such misconduct, which would negatively impact Tuya’s business, revenue, earnings, and prospects. As a result of the foregoing, Tuya’s representations in the IPO Registration Statement concerning historical, financial, and operational metrics and purported market opportunities and expected growth did not accurately reflect the actual business, operations, financial results, and trajectory of the Company at the time of the IPO. By August 2022, Tuya ADSs had dropped below $2 per ADS, 90% below the IPO price.
