LHC, a Delaware corporation headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana, is a health care provider specializing in the post-acute continuum of care primarily for Medicare beneficiaries. The Company provides home-based services, primarily through home nursing agencies and hospices, and facility-based services, primarily through long-term acute care hospitals. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the Defendants failed to disclose that the reported growth in LHC’s home-based healthcare segment during the Class Period was created, in large part, by the Company engaging in a pattern of practice designed to achieve the most profitable number of therapy visits, regardless of patient need, to maximize revenue. As a result of defendants’ false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
