NEW YORK, Dec. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bernstein Liebhard LLP announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased or acquired the American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) of iQIYI, Inc. (“iQIYI” or “Company”) (NASDAQ: IQ) between March 22, 2021 and March 29, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

According to the complaint, Defendants Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley collectively sold a large number of iQIYI shares while in possession of material non-public information 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 fully liquidate its position in the Company. Trading on this non-public information, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley avoided billions of dollars in losses on their iQIYI 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 iQIYI securities fell sharply, damaging Company investors.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than January 31, 2022. 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.
