China Finance Online, Case no. 1:15-CV-07894-RMB) against the Company and alleges that the Company's public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission included materially false statements and/or omitted material facts that the Company's transactions with a Chinese entity were related party transactions, which inflated the price of the Company's securities during the period from April 29, 2013 and June 3, 2015.
