The filed complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

  • Tencent Music’s exclusive licensing arrangements with major  record labels were anticompetitive;
     
  • consequently, sublicensing such content from Tencent Music was unreasonably expensive, in violation of Chinese antimonopoly laws;
     
  • these anticompetitive efforts were reasonably likely to lead to regulatory scrutiny; and
     
  • as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On August 27, 2019, Bloomberg News reported that the State Administration of Market Regulation, China’s antitrust authority, was investigating exclusive licensing deals between Tencent Music and major record labels including Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Music Group.

On this news, Tencent Music’s ADR price fell $0.92 per share, or 6.83%, to close at $12.57 per share on August 27, 2019.
