Yahoo! Inc. operates as a digital media company that delivers personalized digital content and experiences, across devices and worldwide. The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants failed to disclose that an important asset in China, Alipay, had been transferred at much less than market value. As a result of defendants' false statements, Yahoo's stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period, between April 19, 2011 and May 13, 2011, reaching a high of $18.65 per share on May 6, 2011. On May 10, 2011, Yahoo disclosed in its 10-Q for the first time that the Company's $1 billion investment in a strategic partnership with Alibaba Group Holdings Limited,("Alibaba") likely had been severely impaired by the misappropriation of Alibaba's most valuable asset, Alipay, an e-commerce payment system, from Alibaba to another private company controlled by Alibaba's Chairman, Jack Ma. On news of this partial disclosure, Yahoo's stock collapsed $1.30 per share. Subsequently, on Sunday, May 15, Yahoo issued a press release announcing negotiations to resolve all outstanding issues relating to Alipay. On this news, Yahoo's stock price fell an additional $0.74 to close at $15.85 on May 16, 2011 – a decline of 15% from its Class Period high of $18.65 per share.
