SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky Announces Investigation into Possible Breaches of Fiduciary Duty by Board & the Majority Shareholder of Erickson Air-Crane, Inc.

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors and the majority shareholder of Erickson Air-Crane, Inc. ("Erickson" or the "Company") (NasdaqGM: EAC) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the purchase of Evergreen Helicopters, Inc. ("Evergreen").

Evergreen was in financial distress leading up to its acquisition by Erickson, with suppliers withholding parts due to unpaid bills and a resulting inability to maintain its aircraft. As a result of this financial situation, it was unlikely Evergreen would be able to pay off the substantial second lien debt it owed to a group of private equity funds collectively known as ZM Funds. This consortium held, at the time, 60% of Erickson stock. Then on March 20, 2013, Erickson announced it had agreed to acquire Evergreen for $250 million—a deal that effectively allowed ZM Funds to exchange approximately $120 million in distressed debt of Evergreen Helicopters for millions of Erickson shares.

The investigation concerns whether the acquisition of Evergreen constituted a breach of fiduciary duty by the Board of Erickson, and its majority shareholder, ZM Funds.
