BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quorum Health Corporation (NYSE: QHC) today filed a Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission announcing a delay in the filing of its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. The Company, together with its financial and legal advisors, has been engaged in discussions with certain debt holders regarding a recapitalization or financial reorganization transaction. As noted in the filing, the process of negotiating with the Company’s debt holders has been a priority for management and has diverted significant management time and internal resources from the Company’s normal processes for reviewing and completing its financial statements and related disclosures. Additionally, the complexities involved with drafting a complete and accurate set of financial statements and related disclosures in light of the anticipated restructuring transaction has significantly increased the time required to prepare and finalize the Form 10-K beyond the time required during a normal review cycle.
With regard to the ongoing discussions concerning a recapitalization or financial reorganization transaction Robert Fish, Quorum Health’s President and CEO commented, “The Company remains engaged in constructive discussions with our debt holders regarding a potential recapitalization or financial reorganization transaction. Regardless of the path forward the Company chooses, Quorum Health and its hospitals will continue to maintain all operations without any interruption to service. Our facilities play a critically important role in their communities and the fight against COVID-19. We are intensely focused on ensuring our employees have the resources they need to provide quality care to the patients and communities they serve, now and well into the future.”
