InvestorNewsBreaks – Tingo Group Inc.’s (NASDAQ: TIO) Legal Counsel to Investigate False Marketing of Financial Institution, Unusual Stock Price Volatility

Tingo Group Inc. (NASDAQ: TIO) today announced that it has become aware of credible evidence that a New York-based financial institution has been soliciting investors with an offer of the company’s securities with the pretense of a fund raise, which was in direct contravention of the company’s explicit wishes. The company is not planning any placement, offering or issuance of its equity securities and has expressly instructed the NY financial institution not to conduct any such solicitation. Tingo Group has also demanded that the NY financial institution notify all the parties solicited to date and inform them that the company is not planning any form of equity fundraising. “We believe that the false marketing by this financial institution has had a materially negative impact on our share price, including on Tuesday, May 30, 2022, when we issued the announcement of our significant export transactions and export deal pipeline,” said Darren Mercer, chief executive officer of Tingo. “Our lawyers have been instructed to investigate the actions of the financial institution and their associates and also provide an assessment of the damages caused to both the company and to its shareholders. The two law firms have extensive experience, and have achieved much success, representing companies in bringing claims against financial institutions for, among other things, breach of various rules and regulations, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, perpetration of stock manipulation, and other securities violations.”
