There is no cost or obligation to you.
According to the complaint, Defendants Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley collectively sold off billions of dollars’ worth of Baidu shares while in possession of material non-public information they obtained pursuant to their agreements with, and from serving as prime brokers for, Archegos Capital Management (“Archegos”). Defendants knew or recklessly disregarded that they owed a fiduciary duty, or obligation arising from a similar relationship of trust and confidence, to Archegos to keep the information confidential.
During March 2021, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley confidentially learned that Archegos had failed, or was likely to fail, to meet a margin call, requiring Archegos to liquidate its position in Baidu. Trading on this non-public information, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley avoided billions of dollars in losses on their Baidu investments by selling Company securities in late March 2021 before the market learned of Archegos’ difficulties. When this information reached the market, the price of Baidu securities fell sharply, damaging Company investors.
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 Baidu’s conduct to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
