NEW YORK, Dec. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of ViacomCBS Inc. (“ViacomCBS” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VIAC). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (“Goldman Sachs”) and/or Morgan Stanley and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
According to media reports, in March 2021, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley confidentially learned that the family office Archegos Capital Management (“Archegos”) had failed or was likely to fail to meet a margin call, requiring Archegos to liquidate its position in ViacomCBS. Trading on this non-public information, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley avoided billions of dollars in losses on their ViacomCBS investments by selling Company securities in late March 2021 before the market learned of Archegos’s difficulties. When this information reached the market, the price of ViacomCBS securities fell sharply, damaging Company investors.
