INVESTOR ALERT: Kirby McInerney LLP Reminds Investors That a Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against The Boeing Company and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm Before June 10

May 9, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2019--The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of those who acquired The Boeing Company (“Boeing” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BA ) securities during the period from January 8, 2019 through March 21, 2019 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until June 10, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that Boeing made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that (i) the 737 MAX airplanes were in fact so less safe than previous models that they included undisclosed “hacks” in an attempt to overcome these safety concerns created by engineering compromises and lacked safety features which Boeing sold as “optional” add-ons which were designed to help address these safety concerns; (ii) that most airlines did not purchase these safety “options”; and (iii) that the FAA handed oversight and certification of Boeing’s MCAS to Boeing, which had a clear conflict of interest as it was rushing the 737 MAX to market.

On March 10, 2019, 157 people perished after an Ethiopian Airlines-operated Boeing 737 Max 8 jet crashed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia shortly after takeoff. In the wake of the crash, regulators in China and several other countries grounded all Boeing 737 Max 8 jets. On this news, Boeing’s stock price fell $47.13, approximately 11.2%, during the next two trading days to close at $375.41 on March 12, 2019.
