Baidu Inc. is a Chinese multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products and artificial intelligence.
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.

A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
