August 1, 2018 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating GDS Holdings Limited (“GDS” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: GDS) concerning potential securities law violations.  Investors who purchased GDS American Depositary Shares, or “ADSs” that trade under the symbol GDS may be affected.

On July 31, 2018, Blue Orca Capital issued a report alleging, among other things, as follows:

“GDS is borrowing crippling amounts of debt to enrich insiders by acquiring data centers from undisclosed related parties which are not nearly as valuable as the Company claims.  We believe that since becoming a public Company, GDS has borrowed recklessly to siphon off at least RMB 696 million to insiders by inflating the purchase price of undisclosed related party acquisitions.”


Additionally, the July 31 Blue Orca Capital report said that it had “discovered evidence of unrelated data center operators selling a substantial amount of empty cabinet space in a building which is supposedly exclusively operated and 94% utilized by GDS.”

Following this news, GDS’s American Depositary Shares plummeted by $12.92 per ADS, more than 37%, to close at $21.83 per ADS on July 31, 2018.
