Overview

This settlement fund has been established to compensate all persons that purchased, sold, held, traded, or otherwise had any interest in any Euroyen Based Derivatives during the period of January 1, 2006 through June 30, 2011 ("Class Period"). The Plaintiffs have alleged that each of the Defendants manipulated Yen-LIBOR, Euroyen TIBOR, and the prices of Euroyen-Based Derivatives. Defendants allegedly did so by using several means of manipulation. For example, panel banks that made the daily Yen-LIBOR and/or Euroyen TIBOR submissions to the British Bankers' Association and Japanese Bankers Association (collectively, "Contributor Bank Defendants") allegedly falsely reported their cost of borrowing in order to financially benefit their Euroyen-Based Derivatives positions. Contributor Bank Defendants also requested that other Contributor Bank Defendants make false Yen-LIBOR and Euroyen TIBOR submissions on their behalf to benefit their Euroyen-Based Derivatives positions.
