| Leave a Comment | News All

RTX Corp, the supplier of geared turbofan (GTF) engines, is facing a lawsuit from its investors who allege that the company misled them about the problems with the engines.

The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut by law firm Bernstein Liebhard LLP. The investors allege that RTX made false and misleading statements about the GTF engines in order to boost the company’s stock price.

Specifically, the investors allege that RTX:

  • Failed to disclose that the GTF engines were experiencing problems with premature wear and tear.
  • Failed to disclose that the company was facing increased costs to repair the engines.
  • Failed to disclose that the problems with the engines were leading to delays in deliveries.
  • Failed to disclose that the company was aware of the problems with the engines but did not take steps to correct them.

The investors are seeking damages for their losses incurred as a result of RTX’s alleged misrepresentations.

In a statement, RTX said that it is “confident that the allegations in the complaint are without merit and will be vigorously defended.”

The GTF engines are used on a variety of aircraft, including the Airbus A320neo and the Boeing 737 MAX. The engines have been plagued by problems since they were first introduced, including premature wear and tear, delays in deliveries, and safety concerns.

The lawsuit is the latest in a series of problems for RTX. The company has also been fined by the US government for violating export controls.

The lawsuit is a sign of the growing concerns about the GTF engines. It remains to be seen whether the lawsuit will be successful, but it is a reminder of the risks associated with investing in companies that are developing new technologies.

The lawsuit is also a reminder of the importance of doing your own research before investing in any company. Investors should carefully review a company’s financial statements and SEC filings to make sure that they are aware of any potential risks.

In addition, investors should talk to a financial advisor to get personalized advice on their investment portfolio.
