On July 28, 2017, Defendants announced during Mednax’s second quarter earnings call with investors and analysts that (1) Mednax did not complete any acquisitions of anesthesiologist practices during the quarter, and (2) any future anesthesiologist acquisitions were unlikely. This news appeared to be inconsistent with earlier statements that the Company had a robust pipeline of anesthesiologist deals.

This news drove the price of Mednax shares down $8.76, or over 15%, to close at $47.73 that day.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and Defendants’ apparently misleading statements to Mednax investors about the sustainability of its acquisition-oriented business model,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
