Background on the Viacom Securities Class Litigation
The action alleges that, during the Class Period, defendants Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley traded in Viacom shares while in possession of material non-public information that Archegos Capital Management (“Archegos”), a family office with $10 billion under management, failed (or was likely to fail) to meet a margin call, requiring it to fully liquidate its position in Viacom. Defendants unloaded large block trades consisting of shares of Archegos’s doomed bets, including billions of dollars worth of Viacom securities beginning on March 25, 2021, before the market learned of Archegos’s collapse. As a result of these insider sales, defendants avoided billions of dollars in losses. Defendants knew, or were reckless in not knowing, that they were prohibited from trading while in possession of material, non-public information about Archegos but disposed of their Viacom shares to class members anyway before the news about Archegos was revealed and the price of Viacom’s shares plummeted.
