The investigation concerns whether VNET and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.

As of February 28, 2022, VNET's co-founder, Josh Sheng Chen, beneficially owned approximately 78.52 million VNET shares individually and through his sole ownership of certain companies, including GenTao Capital Limited ("GenTao") and Sunrise Corporate Holding Ltd. ("Sunrise"). 

On August 19, 2021, he and his companies entered into a $50.25 million margin loan facility with Bold Ally (Cayman) Limited ("Bold Ally"), pledging all of his shares of GenTao, Sunrise, and Beacon Capital Group Inc. as collateral, thus effectively pledging a significant percentage of his VNET shares as collateral (the "Facility Agreement"). 

On February 13, 2023, Bold Ally announced it would exercise its rights under the Facility Agreement following a default by GenTao and was entitled to 48,515,634 Class A ordinary shares (in the form of 8,085,939 American depositary shares, or "ADSs" or "shares") and 27,757,992 Class B ordinary shares of the Company.  On this news, VNET's share price fell $0.20 per share, or 3.2% to close at $6.11 per share on February 13, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume.  The Company's share price continued to decline by $1.09 per share, or 17.8%, over the next consecutive trading session to close at $5.02 per share on February 14, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume. 

Then, on February 15, 2023, VNET disclosed that its Board of Directors (the "Board") had approved and authorized the issuance of up to 555,000 newly created Class D ordinary shares to the Executive Chairman of the Board, and that these shares would be granted a 500-to-1 vote per share power.  The Company stated this measure was required in order to "protect the Company's interests and continued stability." 

On this news, VNET's share price fell $0.10 per share, or 2%, to close at $4.92 per share on February 15, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume.
