According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. WWE suffered from increasing tensions with the government of Saudi Arabia including a breakdown of negotiations over the renewal of its broadcasting distribution deal. The Saudi government failed to make payments to the Company number in the millions of dollars. One such payment for a June 2019 event amounted to $60 million. Orbit Showcase Network (“OSN”) terminated WWE broadcasts in the first quarter of 2019, despite its contractual obligations to continue. OSN’s actions, along with rebuffing renewal efforts, made the likelihood of a renewal in 2019 or the future very small. WWE lacked the capacity to expand its operations in the Middle East or within Saudi Arabia, despite what it had promised investors. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about WWE, investors suffered damages.
