NEW YORK, April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. ("American Renal" or the "Company") (NYSE: ARA), a company that through its subsidiaries owns and operates kidney dialysis centers.

Investors that purchased American Renal securities between August 10, 2016 and March 27, 2019, inclusive (the "Class Period"), may be affected.
According to the complaint, on November 9, 2018, American Renal filed a Form 10-Q with the SEC in which the Company disclosed that in October 2018, SEC staff "requested that the Company voluntarily provide documents and information relating to certain revenue recognition, collections and related matters."

On March 8, 2019, American Renal announced that it was delaying the filing of its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, as well as the issuance of its earnings release for the fourth quarter and full year 2018. American Renal also reported that its Audit Committee review was continuing and, with the assistance of its advisors, that its Audit Committee was examining reserve computations and other accounting practices that could have an impact on accounts receivable and revenue for fiscal year 2018, as well as previously reported fiscal years from 2014 through 2017.
Following this news, American Renal's shares fell $2.05 per share, about 16.4%, to close at $10.46 per share on March 8, 2019.
Then, on March 27, 2019, after the market closed, the Company announced the resignation of its CFO, and that American Renal would restate its financial results for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2014 through December 31, 2018.
