LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the January 16, 2018 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (“Omega” or the “Company”) (NYSE: OHI) securities between February 8, 2017, and October 31, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”) Omega investors have until January 16, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

On October 31, 2017, the Company held a conference call to discuss its third quarter results. On the call, Daniel J. Booth, the Company’s COO, stated that Omega was experiencing “operator performance issues,” including issues with Signature Healthcare, one of the Company’s top ten operators. On the same call, Robert Stephenson, the Company’s CFO, stated that operating revenue for the quarter was approximately $220 million, compared to $225 million for the third quarter of 2016, and that “[t]he decrease was primarily a result of placing Orianna on a cash basis” which caused the Company to record no Orianna revenue for the quarter. Stephenson also stated that the Company lowered its 2017 adjusted funds from operations guidance due, in part, to “the temporary loss of Orianna revenue for both the third and fourth quarters” and the fact that the Company placed another operator, Daybreak, on a cash basis effective September 1st.
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $2.11 per share, or 6.8%, to close at $28.86 per share on November October 31, 2017, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that financial and operating results of certain of the Company’s operators were deteriorating; (2) that, as a result, certain of the Company’s operators were experiencing worsening liquidity issues that were significantly impacting the operators’ ability to make timely rent payments; (3) that, as a result, certain of the Company’s direct financing leases were impaired and certain receivables were uncollectible; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Omega’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
