Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Intelsat S.A. ("Intelsat" or the Company") (NYSE: I) shares contemporaneously with defendants’ trades between November 5, 2019 and November 18, inclusive (the "Class Period). Intelsat investors have until June 8, 2020 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
Investors suffering losses on their Intelsat investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On November 5, 2019, unbeknownst to investors, Intelsat had met with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to discuss the private sale of certain wavebands controlled by Intelsat for future "5G" use (the "C-Band") and that the FCC opposed Intelsat’s then-existing proposal, instead favoring a public auction rather than private sale of the C-Band.
Then on November 18, 2019, the FCC announced that it would publicly auction the C-Band that Intelsat had been hoping to sell privately.
On this news the Company’s share price fell $5.38 per share, or over 40%, to close at $8.03 per share, thereby injuring investors.
According to the lawsuit, defendants violated provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by selling Intelsat shares while in possession of material non-public information, including that the FCC opposed Intelsat’s proposal and instead favored a public auction of the C-Band.
