REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 7, 2019--The following statement is being issued by Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP and Cotchett, Pitre & Mccarthy, LLP regarding the Alibaba Securities Litigation Settlement:

YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that a hearing will be held on May 17, 2019, at 9:00 a.m., before the Honorable Richard H. DuBois at the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo, Department 16, Courtroom 7A, 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063, to determine whether: (1) the proposed settlement (the “Settlement”) of the above-captioned action as set forth in the Stipulation of Settlement (“Stipulation”) 2 for $75,000,000 in cash should be approved by the Court as fair, reasonable and adequate; (2) the Judgment as provided under the Stipulation should be entered; (3) to award Plaintiffs’ Counsel attorneys’ fees and expenses out of the Settlement Fund (as defined in the Notice of Proposed Settlement of Class Action (“Notice”), which is discussed below) and, if so, in what amount; (4) to pay Plaintiffs for representing the Class out of the Settlement Fund and, if so, in what amount; and (5) the Plan of Allocation should be approved by the Court as fair, reasonable and adequate.

This Action is a consolidated securities class action brought on behalf of those Persons who purchased or acquired Alibaba ADS pursuant or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus for Alibaba’s IPO, against Alibaba and certain of its officers, directors and underwriters of Alibaba’s IPO (collectively, “Defendants”) for, among other things, allegedly misstating and omitting material facts from the Registration Statement and Prospectus filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the IPO. Plaintiffs allege that these purportedly false and misleading statements inflated the price of the Company’s stock, resulting in damage to Class Members when the truth was revealed. Defendants deny all of Plaintiffs’ allegations.

IF YOU PURCHASED OR ACQUIRED ALIBABA ADS BETWEEN SEPTEMBER 18, 2014 THROUGH AND INCLUDING OCTOBER 5, 2015, YOUR RIGHTS MAY BE AFFECTED BY THE SETTLEMENT OF THIS ACTION.

To share in the distribution of the Settlement Fund, you must establish your rights by submitting a Proof of Claim and Release form (“Proof of Claim”) by mail (postmarked no later than May 2, 2019) or electronically (no later than May 2, 2019). Your failure to submit your Proof of Claim by May 2, 2019, will subject your claim to rejection and preclude your receiving any of the recovery in connection with the Settlement of this Action. If you are a member of the Class and do not request exclusion therefrom, you will be bound by the Settlement and any judgment and release entered in the Action, including, but not limited to, the Judgment, whether or not you submit a Proof of Claim.

If you have not received a copy of the Notice, which more completely describes the Settlement and your rights thereunder (including your right to object to the Settlement), and a Proof of Claim, you may obtain these documents, as well as a copy of the Stipulation (which, among other things, contains definitions for the defined terms used in this Summary Notice) and other settlement documents, online at www.AlibabaSecuritiesLitigation.com, or by writing to:
