The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and misleading statements to investors during the Class Period, and failed to disclose to investors that:

-- the Company’s financial statements were false and could not be relied upon; and -- American Renal had material weaknesses in its internal controls over financial reporting. The complaint further alleges that, as a result of the foregoing, investors purchased American Renal’s common stock at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period and suffered investment losses as a result of the defendants’ conduct.

On March 8, 2019, American Renal disclosed that it was delaying the filing of its fiscal 2019 Annual Report, and that the Company’s Audit Committee was “examining reserve computations and other accounting practices that could have an impact on accounts receivable and revenue for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, as well as the previously reported fiscal years….”

Following this news, shares of the Company’s stock declined $2.05 per share, or over 16% in value, to close on March 8, 2019 at $10.46 per share, on heavy trading volume.
