Dynagas Accused of Misleading Investors Regarding Two Key
Long-Term Contracts

According to the complaint, since its 2013 IPO, Dynagas attracted
investors by paying a substantial quarterly distribution. Dynagas
routinely touted its long-term charter contracts and reminded investors
of the predictable nature of revenue. However, starting in early 2018,
Dynagas began misleading investors regarding the new distribution rate.
In a February 2018 conference call, CEO Tony Lauritzen falsely assured
investors that the new distribution rate would be consistent and
sustainable for a long time. Contrary to his assurances, Dynagas knew
that its steady, predictable cash flow would be reduced in 2018 and for
years thereafter. On November 15, 2018, Dynagas disclosed that two of
its vessels entered extended charter contracts at "lower rates compared
with the previous charter contracts." On this news, Dynagas's stock fell
$1.07, or over 13.7%. Then on January 25, 2019, the magnitude of the
fraud was further revealed when Dynagas announced that it would be
cutting its quarterly distribution by 75% as it was "necessary in order
to retain more of the cash generated from the Partnership's long term
contracts to maintain a steady cash balance." On this news, Dynagas'
stock fell $1.11, or over 27.6%, to close at $2.91 per share on January
26, 2019, and has continued to fall.
