IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 7, 2017 / Khang & Khang LLP (the "Firm") announces a class action lawsuit against Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. ("Global Eagle" or the "Company") (ENT).

There has been no class certification in this case yet. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the Company made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: Global Eagle was unable to timely and properly account for its acquisition of Emergency Markets Communications ("EMC"); that the Company lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; and that as a result of the above, Global Eagle's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On February 21, 2017, pre-market, Global Eagle announced that its CEO David M. Davis and its CFO Thomas E. Severson Jr. 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 EMC, 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." When this information was released to the public, shares of Global Eagle declined in value.
