SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Encourages Investors Who Have Losses in Excess of $200,000 From Investment in Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. to Contact Brower Piven Before the August 2, 2013 Lead Plaintiff Deadline -- SPR

STEVENSON, Md., June 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas on behalf of purchasers of Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. ("Spirit AeroSystems" or the "Company") (NYSE:SPR) common stock during the period between May 5, 2011 and October 24, 2012, inclusive (the "Class Period").

If you have suffered a net loss from investment in Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. common stock purchased on or after May 5, 2011, and held through October 24, 2012, you may obtain additional information about this lawsuit and your ability to become a lead plaintiff by contacting Brower Piven at www.browerpiven.com, by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com, by calling 410/415-6616, or at Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, 1925 Old Valley Road, Stevenson, Maryland 21153. Attorneys at Brower Piven have combined experience litigating securities and class action cases of over 60 years.

No class has yet been certified in the above action. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff no later than August 2, 2013 and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement and how much of a settlement to accept for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in the Company during the Class Period.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Company was having difficulties executing its diversification and growth strategy as it expanded its customer-base, manufacturing sites, and product design capabilities, while managing multiple development programs with significant design changes and schedule delays, and that the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls over cost overruns associated with its 787 program, G650 Wing program, BR725 program and G280 Wing program. According to the complaint, following the Company's October 25, 2012 disclosure that it expected to record charges against 2012 earnings, and to future years' earnings, totaling $590 million, attributed to significant operational problems with the Company's 787 program, G650 Wing program, BR725 program, G280 Wing program, and other combined programs, the value of Spirit AeroSystems shares declined significantly.

If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
