[^] Notable Class Action Settlements in 2020

  Settlement Amount   Class Action
  -----------------   ------------
  $9,600,000,000      In re Roundup Products Liability Litigation
                      (MDL No. 2741), Case No. 3:16-md-02741
                      (N.D. Cal.)

                      Consumers from across the United States who
                      were exposed to The Monsanto Company's
                      Roundup(TM) (glyphosate) weed killer sued
                      the company over medical bills and lost
                      wages due to a cancer diagnosis. Roundup
                      has been designated as a probable human
                      carcinogen by the International Agency for
                      Research on Cancer (IARC), an arm of the
                      World Health Organization (WHO), and those
                      exposed are at risk of developing non-
                      Hodgkin lymphoma and other forms of cancer.
                      In September 2016, Monsanto agreed to be
                      acquired by Bayer AG for $66 billion.  In
                      June 2020, Bayer publicly announced the
                      settlement with five of the leading law
                      firms in the Roundup cancer litigation. The
                      agreements were reached after more than a
                      year of negotiations and three consecutive
                      trial losses for Bayer that resulted in a
                      combined $2.424 billion in jury verdicts
                      for the plaintiffs. The settlement includes
                      funding for medical and scientific research
                      into the diagnosis and treatment of NHL.
                      Bayer has agreed to separately pay up to
                      $2 billion to resolve future claims.

                      Announced June 24, 2020.

  Settlement Amount   Class Action
  -----------------   ------------
  $1,210,000,000      In re Valeant Pharmaceuticals
                      International, Inc. Securities Litigation,
                      Master No. 3:15-cv-07658-MAS-LHG (D.N.J.)

                      Investors allege that defendants made
                      materially false and misleading statements
                      or omitted material facts, artificially
                      inflating the price of Valeant's
                      securities.  Specifically, defendants
                      failed to disclose that Valeant had
                      deficient internal controls; Valeant had a
                      relationship with a network of specialty
                      pharmacies used to boost sales of its high-
                      priced drugs; the use of specialty
                      pharmacies left Valeant vulnerable to
                      increased regulatory risks; defendants were
                      under government scrutiny for its financial
                      assistance programs for patients, pricing
                      decisions and the distribution of its
                      products; Valeant faced the risk of
                      scrutiny over its price increases; without
                      using specialty pharmacies, Valeant's
                      financial performance would be negatively
                      impacted; without using specialty
                      pharmacies, Valeant's class period
                      performance would have been negatively
                      impacted; Valeant's true relationship with
                      Philidor and the extent of that
                      relationship; Valeant controlled Philidor;
                      Valeant's subsidiary KGA had a secured lien
                      interest on Philidor's ownership;
                      Defendants were engaged in a scheme to
                      manipulate Valeant's stock price; and as a
                      result, Valeant's public statements were
                      materially false and misleading and/or
                      lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant
                      times. When the true details entered the
                      market, the investors suffered damages.  An
                      amended complaint alleges that certain
                      defendants sold Valeant securities while in
                      possession of material, nonpublic
                      information.  The parties vigorously
                      litigated this case for four years before
                      agreeing to mediation. Defendant
                      PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is not a party
                      to the settlement.

                      Announced December 15, 2019.

                      Final Approval entered January 31, 2021.

  $641,250,000        In re Flint Water Litigation, No.
                      17-108646-NO (Mich. Cir., 7th Judicial,
                      Genesee County)

                      The lawsuits assert that when the City of
                      Flint switched to the Flint River as the
                      source of water in 2014, the water was not
                      treated correctly and that it caused pipes
                      to corrode and release lead and other
                      contaminants into the water. Flint
                      residents suffered personal injury,
                      property damage, economic loss, or any
                      other type of damage or injury as a result
                      of exposure to, use of, or being obligated
                      to pay for, the contaminated water.
                      Plaintiffs allege the Defendants made the
                      situation worse by, among other things,
                      concealing and misrepresenting the scope of
                      the water contamination, failing to take
                      effective action to eliminate the source of
                      the contamination, failing to properly
                      treat the water in general, failing to
                      properly provide engineering services and
                      advice on treating and addressing
                      contamination of the water, and then lying
                      about it to cover up the misconduct.

                      The total settlement fund is divided into
                      three general categories:

                      (1) 79.5% of the total fund (less fees and
                          expenses allowed by the Court) will be
                          allocated to children who were under
                          age 18 when they were first exposed to
                          the water.

                      (2) 2% of the total fund (less fees and
                          expenses allowed by the Court) will be
                          allocated to educational programs for
                          Flint children affected by the water.

                      (3) 18.5% of the total fund (less fees and
                          expenses allowed by the Court) will be
                          allocated to adults, property owners
                          and renters, and/or business owners and
                          operators, or are legally liable for
                          the water payments who are claiming
                          injury, damage, or loss of any kind.

                      Plaintiffs allege, among things, that
                      customers of Santee Cooper paid utility
                      rates for amounts related to the
                      construction of two new nuclear power
                      plants at the V.C. Summer nuclear power
