According to the complaint, Global Eagle provides content, connectivity, and digital media solutions for travel industry worldwide. On July 27, 2016, Global Eagle announced that it had completed its previously announced acquisition of Emergency Markets Communications, a communications services provider to maritime and hard-to-reach land markets.

The complaint alleges that, on February 21, 2017, pre-market, Global Eagle announced that the its Chief Executive Officer David M. Davis and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) Thomas E. Severson Jr. had resigned from their positions with the company. Global Eagle also announced that it expected to file its Annual Report for fiscal year 2016 after the March 16, 2017 U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission deadline, citing the company’s “increased size and complexity” after its acquisition of Emerging Markets Communications, as well as “its need to transition the finance department after the prior CFO’s departure and its need to complete additional financial-closing procedures associated with the Company’s material weaknesses in internal control over its financial reporting.”

Following this news, Global Eagle’s share price fell $1.74, or 27.97%, to close at $4.48 on February 21, 2017.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Global Eagle was unable to timely and properly account for the Emerging Markets Communications acquisition; (ii) consequently, the company lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; and (iii) as a result, Global Eagle’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
