The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Allegiant securities between June 8, 2015 and April 13, 2018 (the “Class Period”). The case, Daniel Checkman v. Allegiant Travel Company et al, No. 2:18-cv-03417 was filed on April 24, 2018 and has been assigned to Judge John F. Walter.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws.
Specifically, on April 13, 2018, CBS News announced it would air a 60 Minutes segment on Sunday, April 15, 2018, criticizing the Company’s safety and maintenance record.
After the announcement, Allegiant’s share price fell from $165.25 per share on April 12, 2018 to a closing price of $151.05 on April 13, 2018—a $14.20 or a 8.59% drop.
Then, on April 15, 2018, CBS News aired a 60 Minutes report revealing that: (i) Allegiant aircraft had a high number of serious mechanical incidents from mid2015 through October 2017; (ii) Allegiant lacks the infrastructure and personnel to adequately maintain their aircraft; and (iii) Allegiant has discouraged pilots from reporting safety and maintenance issues.
After the announcement, Allegiant’s share price fell from $151.05 per share on April 12, 2018 to a closing price of $146.40 on April 13, 2018—a $4.65 or a 3.07% drop.
