NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 20, 2020--

Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R) between July 23, 2015 and February 13, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Ryder investors under the federal securities laws.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. AN INVESTOR’S ABILITY TO SHARE IN ANY POTENTIAL FUTURE RECOVERY IS NOT DEPENDENT UPON SERVING AS LEAD PLAINTIFF.

Ryder provides transportation and supply chain management solutions. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, alleges that between 2015 and 2020, Ryder grossly overstated the residual values assigned to its trucks. As a result, Ryder is alleged to have recorded smaller depreciation expenses and artificially inflated its earnings.

The truth was revealed between July 2019 and February 2020, when Ryder drastically reduced its 2019 full year earnings forecast, and recorded hundreds of millions of dollars in additional depreciation expenses due to reductions to the residual value of its fleet, and recorded tens of millions of dollars in losses on sales of used vehicles. Ryder’s stock price fell from a July 30, 2019 price of $59.32 per share to a close of $40.12 per share on February 14, 2020.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) failed to disclose that Ryder’s financial results were inflated as a result of the Company’s practice of overstating the residual values of the vehicles in its fleet; (2) there was no reasonable basis to believe that Ryder would sell its used vehicles for the amounts that it had assigned to them; (3) Ryder’s residual values for its fleet of vehicles exceeded the expected future values that would be realized upon the sale of those vehicles by such a degree that the Company ultimately took a $357 million depreciation charge in 2019 related to Ryder’s reduction of its residual values to align them with the amounts for which they could realistically be sold; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 20, 2020.
