CASE ALLEGATIONS: Tingo Group purports to be a holding company that operates in the areas of financial technology and agri-fintech through its subsidiaries and entities. As of March 30, 2023, Tingo, Inc. owned 15.7% of Tingo Group’s outstanding common stock.
The Tingo Group class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Tingo, Inc.’s majority shareholder, defendant Dozy Mmobuosi, fabricated biographical claims about himself; (ii) Tingo Group had photoshopped its logo onto pictures of airplanes it did not own; (iii) Tingo Group inflated its food division margins; (iv) Tingo Group published misleading images of its planned Nigerian food processing facility and overstated its progress on the facility’s construction; (v) Tingo Group inflated its food inventory; (vi) Tingo Group did not have relationships with the two farming cooperatives it claimed; (vii) Tingo Group did not generate $128 million in revenue for its handset leasing, call, and data segments as it claimed; (viii) Tingo Group’s mobile operation in Nigeria was delinquent on its tax obligations; (ix) Tingo Group photoshopped its logo over pictures from a different point of sale system operator’s website; (x) Tingo Group did not generate $125.3 million in revenue from its online marketplace, NWASSA; (xi) Tingo Group’s agricultural export business was not on track to deliver $1.34 billion in exports by the third quarter of 2023; and (xii) Tingo Group lacked effective controls over accounting and financial reporting.
On June 6, 2023, Hindenburg Research published a report titled “Tingo Group: Fake Farmers, Phones, and Financials – The Nigerian Empire That Isn’t.” The report concluded, among other things, that Tingo Group is a “scam with completely fabricated financials.” The report further claimed that defendant Mmobuosi appears to have fabricated his biographical claims, including that he developed the first mobile payment app in Nigeria and that he received a Ph.D. in rural advancement from a Malaysian university in 2007. The report also revealed that Tingo Group appears to have made several other false representations about its business. On this news, the price of Tingo Group stock fell more than 48%, damaging investors.
