Baidu Inc. is a Chinese multinational technology company specializing in internet related products and services and artificial intelligence.
According to the complaint, the defendants Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley collectively sold billions of dollars of Baidu shares while in possession of material non-public information which they obtained pursuant to their agreements with , and serving as prime brokers for, Archegos Capital Management (âArchegosâ). The defendants knew or unwisely ignored that they owed a fiduciary duty, or an obligation arising from a similar relationship of trust, to Archegos to keep the information confidential.
In March 2021, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley confidentially learned that Archegos had failed, or was likely to fail, to respond to a margin call, forcing Archegos to liquidate its position in Baidu. By trading on this non-public information, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley avoided billions of dollars in losses on their investments in Baidu by selling the company’s securities in late March 2021 before the market learned of Archegos’ difficulties. When this information reached the market, the price of Baidu’s securities fell sharply, hurting the company’s investors.
If you wish to act as the principal applicant, you must apply to the Court at the latest February 14, 2022. A principal plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of the other members of the class to direct the litigation. Your ability to participate in any recovery does not require you to serve as the principal applicant. If you choose not to take any action, you can remain an absent group member.
