NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Quorum Health Corporation ("Quorum" or the "Company") (NYSE: QHC) of the November 8, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee on behalf of all those who purchased Quorum stock or options between May 2, 2016 and August 10, 2016 (the "Class Period"). The case, Rao v. Quorum Health Corporation et al, No. 3:16-cv-02475 was filed on September 9, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Waverly D. Crenshaw, Jr.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that Quorum was suffering from several indicators of impairment, including the underperformance of several of its hospitals, at the time when the Company spun off from Community Health Systems, Inc. ("CHS") effective on or about April 29, 2016.
Specifically, on August 10, 2016, Quorum issued a press release and filed a Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the SEC announcing the Company's financial and operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2016. In it, the Company reported $250.4 million in impairment charges, causing a substantial quarterly operating net loss, related to the spinoff from CHS.
After the announcement, Quorum's share price fell $4.99, from $10.02 per share on August 10, 2016 to a closing price of $5.03 on August 11, 2016 —a 49.8% drop.
