SHENZHEN, China, April 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Addentax Group Corp. ("Addentax" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: ATXG), an integrated service provider focusing on garment manufacturing, logistics service, property management and subleasing, and epidemic prevention supplies, today announced that it plans to assemble a specialized task force to investigate the alleged illegal trading targeting its stock. The Company believes that certain individuals or entities have participated in unauthorized sales of a substantial volume of its shares without securing proper delivery, in violation of the law. This illicit activity seems to be part of a market manipulation scheme designed to artificially depress the value of Addentax's securities.
In response to these concerns, Addentax is proactively evaluating potential actions, which may include engaging experts with a proven track record in detecting potential fraud, insider trading, and market manipulation related to short-selling activities.
Short selling, a legitimate investment practice, entails an investor borrowing shares from another party and selling them with the intention of repurchasing them at a lower price to make a profit. Conversely, naked short selling, the act of selling shares without first borrowing them, is strictly prohibited under the Securities and Exchange Commission rules.
By engaging in repeated instances of naked short selling, malicious actors can accumulate significant profits and manipulate a stock's price downward, potentially driving a company towards insolvency. In this situation, all equity is eliminated, and the naked shorts are no longer required to cover their positions.
Addentax remains steadfast in its commitment to conducting a thorough investigation of this matter and will take decisive action to pursue all available legal remedies.
