About the Lawsuit

HCP, HCR ManorCare, Inc. ("ManorCare"), and certain of their executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, including that ManorCare, most important client, was engaged in rampant billing fraud, violating federal securities laws.

On April 21, 2015, HCP disclosed that the DOJ had intervened in whistleblower lawsuits against ManorCare. On May 5, 2015, HCP disclosed that it had recorded a $478 million impairment charge related to lease arrangements with ManorCare. Then, on February 9, 2016, HCP disclosed that it had written down its 10% equity stake in ManorCare to zero and had taken an $836 million impairment on its ManorCare lease assets.

On this news, the price of HCP's stock plummeted.
