Ryan & Maniskas, LLP Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Assisted Living Concepts, Inc.

Ryan & Maniskas, LLP ( www.rmclasslaw.com/cases/alc) announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the securities of Assisted Living Concepts, Inc. (“ALC” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ALC) between March 12, 2011 and August 6, 2012, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

For more information regarding this class action suit, please contact Ryan & Maniskas, LLP (Richard A. Maniskas, Esquire) toll-free at (877) 316-3218 or by email at rmaniskas@rmclasslaw.com or visit: www.rmclasslaw.com/cases/alc

The complaint charges ALC and its former Chief Executive Officer with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements, and omitted material information concerning ALC’s compliance with its obligations under a lease covering eight assisted living facilities operated by ALC. Under the terms of the lease, ALC was obligated to maintain specified occupancy rates and insure all regulatory licenses remained in good standing. In its quarterly and annual SEC filings, ALC confirmed its compliance with these obligations.

Additionally, ALC failed to maintain the specified occupancy rates and concealed this fact by treating units leased to employees as bona fide rentals. Also undisclosed to investors until revealed in a lawsuit filed by the landlord, state regulators in Georgia and Alabama served notices in February and March 2012 of their intent to revoke licenses for three of the facilities, further violating the lease.

In early May 2012, the audit committee of ALC’s board of directors launched an investigation after receiving an internal whistleblower complaint concerning “possible irregularities in connection with” the lease, and on June 21, 2012, ALC settled with the landlord, causing ALC to incur a net loss of $19.5 million for the first six months of 2012 – an amount close to ALC’s entire net income in 2011.
