On November 5, 2019, 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 filed complaint, 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.
