The Luckin Coffee Collapse
In the early months of 2020, investigations had found out about the existence of a preliminary $314 million accounting fraud at the Chinese coffee chain, Luckin Coffee. This triggered not just a lot of inquiries but also the following effects:
- an almost automatic 76% collapse in shares
- affected billions of dollars of shareholder wealth
- chairman Charles Zhengyao Lu was removed from the billionaire’s list
While the last point might not seem to be a global issue, it still amounts to billions of dollars lost during the collapse.
Ways To Prevent The Collapse
Many experts and accounting firms in Singapore have noted the difference in factors leading to the collapse.
Firstly, senior management should have been required to check the accuracy of their financial statements. There should have been an audit committee that provided oversight over the adequacy of the internal controls and oversight of external auditors.
The internal auditors could have done a better job at risk management, and employees could have been allowed a good reporting mechanism for bad company practices.
