Tencent Music Entertainment Group (NYSE: TME)/FONT>
A class action has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Tencent Music Entertainment Group (NYSE: TME) securities during the period between December 12, 2018 and August 26, 2019, (the “Class Period”).
According to the complaint, in December 2018, Tencent Music completed its initial public offering ("IPO") of 41,029,829 ADSs for $13.00 per ADS. In its official filings with the SEC, Tencent Music highlighted its "strong partnerships" with a wide range of music labels including Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and others, assuring that its business competed within normal competitive conditions and that its sub-licensing was "in accordance with the terms of relevant master license and distribution agreements." However, these representations were materially false and failed to disclose that Tencent Music's exclusive licensing arrangements with major record labels were actually anticompetitive, which allowed Tencent Music to charge unreasonably expensive sublicensing fees, violating Chinese antimonopoly laws. Then, on August 27, 2019, Bloomberg reported that China's antitrust authority was investigating the exclusive licensing deals between Tencent Music Group and the previously mentioned major record labels. On this news, Tencent Music ADSs fell 6.8% to close at $12.57 and have yet to recover.
