According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Healthcare Services knew or recklessly failed to understand that the Company was accused of manipulating quarterly earnings per share, which meant shareholders could not rely on the Companys historical performance until an investigation into these allegations was complete. In fact, Healthcare Services concealed from the public that the SEC had written a letter to the Company in November 2017 inquiring into the Companys practice of rounding its earnings per share. The Company also concealed an SEC subpoena delivered in March 2018 which demanded documentation of its earnings per share calculations. Based on these facts, the Companys public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Healthcare Services, investors suffered damages.
