Qualcomm has consented to pay $75 million to settle a classaction complaint alleging that it misled investors by hiding anticompetitive licencing and sales practices. The preliminary settlement, an allcash deal submitted to a federal court in San Diego, is pending approval by U.S. District Judge Jinsook Ohta. The case, which was approved as a class action in March 2023, charged Qualcomm with manipulating its stock price between February 2012 and January 2017. Investors said Qualcomm misrepresented the separation between its technology licencing and chip sales, accusing the company of engaging in anticompetitive bundling activities. In consenting to a settlement, Qualcomm and its former CEOs, Paul Jacobs and Steven Mollenkopf, denied any wrongdoing. Requests for comments on the settlement have yet to be received by the corporation. Read More..

The UNs International Fund for Agricultural Development IFAD created the International Day of Family Remittances IDFR to highlight remittances vital role in world economies. Remittance flows have quintupled over the last 20 years, reaching sizeable amounts that support millions, particularly in rural regions confronting poverty and climatic issues. 1.4 billion persons worldwide are still unbanked despite these advancements, with women being disproportionately impacted.

IDFR events highlight these issues and celebrate migrant contributions while urging continued efforts to reduce costs and enhance financial inclusion through remittances. Read More..
