(“Acadia” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ACHC ) securities between February 23, 2017 and October 24, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

On October 24, 2017, Acadia reported disappointing Q3 2017 results. Revenue for the quarter was only $716.7 million, compared to $734.7 million for the third quarter of 2016. The Company attributed the results, in part, to “lower census and higher operating costs than anticipated” in the United Kingdom. Acadia also reduced revenue guidance for fiscal year 2017 from “a range of $2.85 billion to $2.9 billion” to “a range of $2.82 billion to $2.83 billion.”
On this news, Acadia’s share price fell $11.44, or 25.9%, to close at $32.68 per share on October 25, 2017, thereby injuring investors.
The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business and operations. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Defendants falsely stated that the quality of Acadia’s U.K. operations gave it a “competitive strength” that would drive future growth and profitability; and that Defendants caused Acadia to issue false and misleading guidance regarding the Company’s actual and projected fiscal 2017 revenue, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and earnings per share (“EPS”).
