The lawsuit alleges that Defendants violated the Exchange Act by selling Intelsat shares while they were in possession of material non-public information, including that Intelsat S.A. had met with the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) on November 5, 2019, to discuss the private sale of certain wavebands controlled by Intelsat S.A. for future “5G” use (the “C-Band”) and that the FCC opposed Intelsat S.A’s then-existing proposal, instead favoring a public auction rather over a private sale of the C-Band.

It is alleged that on November 18, 2019, after the FCC announced that it would publicly auction the C-Band that Intelsat S.A. had been wanting to sell privately, Intelsat S.A’s share price declined 40% to close at $8.03 per share.
