In an SEC filing on April 2, 2020, Luckin Coffee disclosed that an internal probe found that its chief operating officer fabricated 2019 sales by approximately $310 million.

According to CNBC, the investigation found that Luckin’s chief operating officer and several employees had engaged in misconduct, including fabricating sales. Liu and the employees implicated in the misconduct have been suspended, and the company announced it plans to take legal action, according to the article.

The company also announced that investors should not rely on its prior 2019 financial statements and earnings releases for the nine months ended Sept. 30.

This new disclosure follows a January 2020 Muddy Waters research report, which described a Luckin Coffee fraud based on an anonymous 89-page report, and described the company as a “fundamentally broken business.”
