HCP invested directly in ManorCare prior to the start of the Class Period. According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period misrepresented ManorCare's financial performance, the value of HCP's ManorCare assets, and that HCP's revenue stream from ManorCare leases was secure. Moreover, HCP and ManorCare represented that ManorCare had "a long history of compliance with regulations," and that ManorCare's billing practices had been "audited" in the past and were "to the standard one would want." When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
