Johnson Fistel, Globally-Recognized Law Firm Encourages Shareholders to Submit Their DDL Losses
Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has commenced on behalf of investors of Dingdong (Cayman) LTD (NYSE: DDL) (“Dingdong” or the “Company”). The class action is on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise, acquired Dingdong pursuant and/or traceable to the registration statement and related prospectus (collectively, the “Registration Statement”) issued in connection with Dingdong’s June 2021 initial public offering (the “IPO”). Investors are hereby notified that they have until October 24, 2022 to move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff in this action.

There is no cost or obligation to you.
According to the complaint filed in the Southern District of New York, the registration statement and prospectus used to effectuate the Company’s IPO misstated and/or omitted facts concerning Dingdong’s so-called commitment to ensuring the safety and quality of the food it distributes to the market. For example, despite claiming that it applies “stringent quality control across [its] entire supply chain to ensure product quality to [its] users,” Dingdong sold food past its sell-by date. Consequently, Dingdong was, in fact, no better at providing or assuring access to “fresh” groceries than the supermarkets, traditional Chinese wet markets, or traditional e-commerce platforms it repeatedly claimed to be displacing. Moreover, the foregoing conduct subjected Dingdong to an increased risk of regulatory and/or governmental scrutiny and enforcement, all of which, once revealed, were likely to (and did) negatively impact Dingdong’s business, operations, and reputation. In fact, as the truth about Dingdong’s business and its failure to meet its self-imposed food safety responsibilities reached the market, the value of the Company’s shares declined dramatically. By the commencement of the action, Dingdong’s shares traded as low as $2.51 per ADS, representing a decline of over 89% from the $23.50 IPO offering price.
A lead plaintiff will act on behalf of all other class members in directing the Dingdong class-action lawsuit. The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the class-action lawsuit. An investor’s ability to share any potential future recovery of the Dingdong class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.
