The filed complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects.

Defendants failed to disclose to investors:

-- that the Company lacked adequate monitoring processes related to non-financial covenants within its secured financing and lease agreements; -- that, as a result, the Company could not reasonably assure compliance with certain non-financial covenants; -- that, as a result, the Company was reasonably likely to breach certain agreements; -- that, as a result, the Company had understated its short-term debt; and -- that there was a material weakness in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting.

On February 11, 2019, the Company disclosed that it “did not have adequate monitoring control processes in place related to non-financial covenants within certain of its secured financing and lease agreements.” The same day, the Company announced that it had terminated its agreement to purchase Columbia Helicopters, Inc.

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $1.22 per share, or nearly 40%, to close at $1.84 per share on February 12, 2019, on unusually heavy trading volume.

Subsequently, on February 12, 2019, the Company filed a Form 8-K with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to announce that it had terminated its agreement to purchase Columbia Helicopters, Inc., and that Jonathan E. Baliff would retire as Chief Executive Officer and step down from the Board of Directors, effective February 28, 2019.

On this news, the Company’s share price fell and additional $0.64, or nearly 35%, to close at $1.20 per share on February 13, 2019.
