GigaCloud Technology (NASDAQ:GCT) stock is taking a beating on Wednesday after the company’s shares were hit with a short report from Grizzly Research.

Grizzly Research alleges in its short report that GigaCloud Technology is a Chinese “hustle” that is manipulating data to attract investors. It claims that the company’s e-commerce website only gets about 50 visitors per month. Even during its peak in June 2022, the firm notes visitors were only at about 1,000 users per month.

Grizzly Research claims that the company remains open by faking its revenue data and distributing products to other sellers. It does so by having employees create shell companies that order products from it.

Here’s a portion of what Grizzly Research said in its short report for GigaCloud Technology:

“We find evidence that GCT is related to a vast network of undisclosed Chinese-controlled entities in the U.S. that help the company manipulate and inflate their key metrics such as the Gross Merchandise Value (GMV), masking the real growth profile of its business. GCT is also possibly abusing these sales channels to inflate up to 40% of their revenue and sales numbers.”

GCT stock is down 6.2% as of Wednesday afternoon.
