Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. (SPR) Securities Fraud Class Action:

The litigation focuses on Spirit AeroSystem’s past statements concerning its operational performance and quality controls, particularly with respect to supplying its largest customer (Boeing).

According to the complaint, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Spirit lacked adequate production quality controls; (2) Spirit incorrectly installed fittings designed to join the aft fuselage to the vertical tail for some Boeing 737 MAX airplanes; (3) Spirit would have to develop an inspection and repair procedure for the affected fuselages; and (4) the foregoing would negatively impact Spirit’s financial results.

Investors began to learn the truth on Apr. 13, 2023, when the financial press reported that Spirit notified Boeing of a quality problem that could stretch back to 2019. Reuters reported that “[t]he issue will likely affect a ‘significant’ number of undelivered 737 MAX airplanes both in production and in storage, and could result in lowered 737 MAX deliveries in the near term” and “[t]he problem, which affects a portion of the 737 MAX family […] involves the installation of two fittings that join the aft fuselage made by Spirit to the vertical tail, which were not attached correctly before it was sent to Boeing.”

Most recently, on May 3, 2023, Spirit announced that fuselage repair costs would negatively impact 2023 gross profit by $31 million and said that additional costs are expected.

These events have driven the price of Spirit shares sharply lower.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving Spirit knew it embarked on a cost cutting program that adversely affected quality control,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
