On April 30, 2020, Nashville Business Journal reported that a proposed class action lawsuit had been filed against Brookdale, accusing the Company of, among other things, purposeful chronically insufficient staffing at its facilities in an effort to meet financial benchmarks since at least April 24, 2016. According to the lawsuit, the Company misinformed both residents and their families in promising to provide daily living services and basic care. The lawsuit also claims that the proposed class of plaintiffs have not received the care and services they paid for.
On this news, the Companys share price fell $0.56 per share, or over 15%, over two trading sessions, to close at $3.12 per share on May 1, 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 Companys business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that Brookdales financial performance was sustained by, among other things, the Companys purposeful understaffing of its senior living communities; (2) that the foregoing conduct subjected Brookdale to an increased risk of litigation and, once revealed, was foreseeably likely to have a material negative impact on the Companys financial results and reputation; (3) as a result, the Companys financial results were unsustainable; and (4) as a result, the Companys public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you purchased Brookdale securities during the Class Period, you may move the Court no later than August 24, 2020 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
