SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (NYSE: MPW) investors who suffered substantial losses to submit your losses now.
Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (NYSE: MPW) Securities Fraud Class Action:
The litigation focuses on the propriety of Medical Properties Trust’s statements about its recapitalization transaction (“Recap Transaction”) with its third largest tenant, Prospect Medical Holdings.
The complaint alleges Medical Properties Trust misrepresented and failed to disclose that: (i) the Recap Transaction was subject to regulatory approval and (ii) on or about July 20, 2023, the company had received an order from the California’s Department of Managed Health Care (“DMHC”) placing the transaction on hold.
Investors learned the truth on Aug. 18, 2023, when the Wall Street Journal reported on Medical Properties Trust and, referring to the Recap Transaction, said that “[t]he nation’s largest hospital landlord said an unusual transaction that provided crucial financial support for one of its biggest tenants was a done deal” and “[i]t wasn’t.” The WSJ further reported that on Aug. 8, 2023, the company said the transaction boosted its revenue while in possession of an order by a California state regulator putting the transaction on hold and observed that Medical Properties Trust did not disclose the regulator’s order when it filed its quarterly earnings report.
In response, the price of Medical Properties Trust shares fell significantly lower on Aug. 18, 2023.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and investigating whether senior management had a duty to disclose the California regulator’s hold order,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
