GUANGZHOU, China, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EHang Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: EH) (“EHang” or the “Company”), the world's leading urban air mobility ("UAM") technology platform company, announced that the report published today by short seller Hindenburg Research contains untrue statements and misinterpretation of information regarding the Company’s business operations and financial conditions. The report highlights the short seller's cursory and incomplete understanding of the Company's industry and business operations.

The Company will continue to provide updates on its order pipeline from time to time, including significant new orders it received after obtaining the certificate for unmanned eVTOL from the Civil Aviation Administration of China.
The Company firmly denies the allegations in the short seller report that the Company misled investors about its order pipeline and sales, and will take appropriate actions to protect its and its shareholders’ interests.
