Case Details:

RealNetworks is a technology company that was instrumental in creating the streaming media category in the mid-1990s and is involved in numerous lines of technology related business today. In recent years, the Company has increasingly focused on developing artificial intelligence based products and services such as its Secure Accurate Facial Recognition computer vision platform and its “Kontxt” natural language processing based message classification and analysis product.

The class action is on behalf of the former minority shareholders of RealNetworks against RealNetworks and the former members of its Board of Directors, including Robert Glaser, the Company’s Founder, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and largest shareholder, for their violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), 15 U.S.C. § 78n(e) and § 78t(a). Plaintiff’s claims arise in connection with the acquisition of the Company by Glaser and Glaser’s investment entities Greater Heights LLC and Greater Heights Acquisition LLC.

The Complaint alleges that, the Individual Defendants had the ability to exercise control over and did control a person or persons who have each violated Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act, by their acts and omissions as alleged therein. Thus, by virtue of their position as controlling persons, the Individual Defendants are liable pursuant to Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act. Specifically, Defendants authorized the filing of a materially false and/or misleading Schedule 14A Definitive Proxy Statement with the SEC. The Proxy omits and/or misrepresents material information concerning:

(1) the sales process for the Company;

(2) management’s financial projections; and

(3) the data and inputs underlying the financial valuation analyses that purport to support the fairness opinion provided by Houlihan Lokey.

The Complaint further alleges that, because of Defendants’ wrongful acts and omissions throughout the Class Period and the ensuing precipitous decline in the market value of the Company’s securities, Plaintiff and other Class members have suffered significant losses and damages.
