Shareholder Securities Fraud Litigation

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces A Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against FLY Leasing Limited (NYSE: FLY)

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of FLY Leasing Limited (“FLY” or the “Company”) (NYSE: FLY) between May 8, 2014 and March 7, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).

If you purchased shares of FLY during the Class Period, and wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact Timothy J. MacFall, Esquire or Peter Allocco of Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 2 Righter Parkway, Suite 120, Wilmington, DE 19803 at (888) 969-4242; by e-mail to info@rl-legal.com.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects.  As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.

According to the Complaint, on March 8, 2016, FLY disclosed that the Company and the SEC were discussing FLY’s accounting policy for business combinations, including FLY’s accounting policy for intangible assets and liabilities for aircraft acquired with in-place leases.  FLY stated that “if it is determined after the conclusion of the [SEC’s] review that FLY should separately recognize other intangible assets or liabilities from what has been previously recorded, the impact could be material to FLY’s previously issued consolidated financial statements and require modification to its accounting for the current and prior year results,” and that, “as a result of the ongoing discussions with the [SEC], FLY may not be able to timely file its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2015.”

On this news, shares of FLY dropped over 8%, closing at $12.27 per share on March 8, 2016, on heavy trading volume.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 23, 2016.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
