(“Viacom” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VIAC) (NASDAQ: VIACA) between March 22, 2021 and March 29. 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

According to the lawsuit, defendants Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley jointly sold several billion dollars worth of Viacom shares while in possession of material non-public information they obtained under their agreements with and as a prime broker for Archegos Capital Management (“Archegos”). The defendants knew or recklessly disregarded that they owed a duty of loyalty to Archegos or an obligation arising from a similar relationship of trust to keep the information confidential.

In March 2021, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley learned confidentially that Archegos had failed or likely would fail to meet a margin call that prompted Archegos to liquidate its position in Viacom. Trading this non-public information enabled Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to avoid billions in losses on their Viacom investments by selling the company’s securities in late March 2021 before the market learned of Archegos’ troubles. When this information reached the market, the price of Viacom securities fell sharply, causing harm to the company’s investors.
