On April 4, 2023, GDS filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission its Annual Report on Form 20-F for 2022. In the 2022 Annual Report, GDS admitted that Company founder and Chief Executive Officer William Wei Huang had entered into previously undisclosed pre-paid forward sale contract transactions, which would have significant consequences if Huang’s share ownership fell below 5%—an outcome that GDS acknowledged was a possibility if “Huang chooses to settle these transactions by transferring ownership of [his] ordinary shares to the counterparties”. Specifically, the Annual Report stated that “[i]f Mr. Huang’s beneficial ownership in our company falls below 5%, our dual-class share structure will terminate and a change of control would be triggered under certain of our material commercial and loan agreements, and our business development, financial condition and future prospects may be materially and adversely affected.”
On this news, GDS’s stock price fell $1.30 per share, or 7.01%, over the following two trading sessions, closing at $17.24 per share on April 5, 2023.
