On January 31, 2018, Defendants filed Qualcomm’s quarterly report for the period ended December 24, 2017.  In that filing, Defendants discussed several matters concerning Broadcom’s attempted hostile takeover of the Company for $70 per share.

The complaint charges Defendants omitted to also inform investors that two days before the January 31 filing they had requested the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”) to investigate Broadcom’s proxy solicitation activities.

On March 12, 2018, Defendants attached a CFIUS letter discussing Defendants’ January 29 request and expressing its concerns about potential national security risks posed by Broadcom’s attempted hostile takeover.

This news drove the price of Qualcomm shares down $3.11, or almost 5%, to close at $59.70 on March 13, 2018.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and which of Qualcomm’s senior officers knowingly omitted the January 29, 2018 CFIUS request from the January 31 quarterly report,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
