Quality Systems Accused of Misrepresenting Its Financial Condition
According to the complaint, Quality Systems officials aggressively promoted the company's "extraordinary" and "strong record of growth" while claiming projected increases as high as 35% for its earnings and revenue guidance. Company officials continued to express confidence in Quality Systems' growth prospects and recommended that investors purchase Quality Systems stock. Despite the company's representations, Quality Systems' revenues were decreasing because the company's new bookings and sales pipeline had begun to decline. On July 26, 2012—three days after Quality Systems affirmed its guidance—the company suddenly announced that its earnings per share had precipitously declined and that it was retracting its guidance. On this news, Quality Systems' stock fell 33% to close at $15.95 per share on July 26, 2012. Since the truth about the company's financial condition was revealed, the company's stock decline has wiped out more than $600 million in shareholder value.
