Entwistle & Cappucci LLP (Entwistle & Cappucci) today announced it has filed a securities class action lawsuit on behalf of persons and entities that purchased securities of Dynagas LNG Partners LP (Dynagas or the Company) during the period from February 16, 2018 through March 21, 2019, inclusive (the Class Period and theClass). The case was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (the Court), Case No.1:19-cv-04512, against Dynagas, certain associated entities and certain of the Companys senior executives (collectively, Defendants).
The class action asserts claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that, during the Class Period, the Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and omitted material adverse facts to conceal the unfavorable terms of the Companys long-term contracts on its liquid natural gas ships, Arctic Aurora and Ob River, and its resulting inability to sustain its quarterly distributions. As a result of the Defendants false and misleading statements and omissions, Dynagas securities traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period. Such inflation was removed when it was revealed that the Arctic Aurora and the Ob River were commencing employment under new extended charter contracts which were at lower rates compared to the previous charter contracts, thereby undermining the Companys ability to make future distributions. The complaint seeks an award of damages, and interest thereon, to plaintiff and other Class members.
If you wish to serve as a lead plaintiff in this matter, you must file a motion with the Court no later than July 16, 2019. Any member of the proposed Class may move the Court to serve as a lead plaintiff in this matter through counsel of their choice, or they may choose to do nothing and remain a member of the Class.
