NEW YORK, March 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against The Boeing Company ("Boeing" or the "Company") (NYSE: BA) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, and docketed under 16-cv-02454, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Boeing securities between February 9, 2012 and February 11, 2016 inclusive (the "Class Period"). This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
If you are a shareholder who purchased Boeing securities during the Class Period, you have until April 22, 2016 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.

Boeing, together with its subsidiaries, designs, develops, manufactures, sells, services, and supports commercial jetliners, military aircraft, satellites, missile defense, human space flight, and launch systems and services worldwide. The Company operates in five principal segments: Commercial Airplanes, Boeing Military Aircraft, Network & Space Systems, Global Services & Support, and Boeing Capital.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Boeing's use of program accounting for the Company's 787 Dreamliner and/or 747 jumbo aircrafts relied on inflated sales forecasts; (ii) Boeing's use of program accounting for the Company's 787 Dreamliner and/or 747 jumbo aircrafts relied on understated estimates of production costs; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Boeing's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On February 11, 2016, Bloomberg News reported that the SEC is investigating whether Boeing properly accounted for the costs and expected sales of its 787 Dreamliner and 747 jumbo aircraft.
On this news, Boeing shares fell $7.92, or 6.8%, to close at $108.44 on February 11, 2016.
