Case Summary

The Vipshop Holdings Ltd. class action lawsuit charges Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  The Vipshop class action lawsuit seeks to represent investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Vipshop shares contemporaneously with defendants’ allegedly unlawful trades from March 22, 2021 through and including March 29, 2021 (the “Class Period”).  The Vipshop class action lawsuit was commenced on October 12, 2021 in the Southern District of New York and is captioned Tan v. Goldman Sachs Group Inc., No. 21-cv-08413.

CASE ALLEGATIONS: The Vipshop class action lawsuit alleges that Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley sold Vipshop shares to public shareholders after confidentially learning that Archegos Capital Management (“Archegos”), a family office with $10 billion under management, failed (or was likely to fail) to meet a margin call, requiring it to fully liquidate its position in Vipshop.  The Vipshop class action lawsuit further alleges that Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley avoided billions in losses by trading on this alleged material non-public information.  As further alleged by the Vipshop class action lawsuit, according to subsequent media reports, defendants unloaded large block trades consisting of shares of Archegos’ doomed bets, including billions worth of Vipshop securities, late Thursday, March 25, 2021, before the Archegos story reached the public, sending Vipshop’s stock into a complete tailspin. 

THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Vipshop shares during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Vipshop class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.  A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Vipshop class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Vipshop class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery of the Vipshop class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.
