NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Aircastle Limited ("AYR" or the "Company") (NYSE: AYR) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Marubeni Corp and Mizuho Leasing Co.

WeissLaw is investigating whether AYR's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the acquisition agreement. Notably, the Company recently declared a fourth quarter 2019 cash dividend of $0.32 per AYR share. This represents AYR's 54th consecutive dividend, and reflects a 6.7% increase in dividend distribution over the previous period.
Moreover, AYR also announced unaudited lease rental revenue of $203 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2019, representing an increase of $21 million year-over-year when compared to the $182 million reported in the same period of the previous year.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is concentrating its investigation on whether the acquisition enhances shareholder value. WeissLaw is concerned whether the proposed acquisition undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed acquisition is fully and fairly disclosed.

We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.
