The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New Yorkon behalf of all those who purchased Tencent Music securities between December 12, 2018 and August 26, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  The case, Gordon v. Tencent Music Entertainment Group, No. 1:19-cv-05465, was filed on September 26, 2019.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) Tencent Music’s exclusive licensing arrangements with major record labels were anticompetitive; (2) consequently, sublicensing such content from Tencent Music was unreasonably expensive, in violation of Chinese antimonopoly laws; (3) these anticompetitive efforts were reasonably likely to lead to regulatory scrutiny; and (4) as a result, Defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On August 27, 2019, Bloomberg reported that China’s antitrust authority, the State Administration of Market Regulation, was investigating the exclusive licensing deals between Tencent Music and major record labels including Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Music Group.

On this news, Tencent Music’s stock fell from $13.49 on August 26, 2019 to $12.57 on August 27, 2019—a $0.92 or a 6.82% drop.

The court-appointed lead plaintiff is the investor with the largest financial interest in the relief sought by the class who is adequate and typical of class members who directs and oversees the litigation on behalf of the putative class. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision to serve as a lead plaintiff or not.  

Faruqi Faruqi, LLP also encourages anyone with information regarding Tencent Music’s conduct to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
