The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Centene made materially false and misleading statements concerning the acquisition of Health Net, Inc. and failed to disclose: (1) that certain Health Net insurance programs were significantly underperforming, which led to the need to increase reserves to offset losses caused by these programs; (2) that Centene overstated the financial prospects of Health Net; and (3) that as a result of the above, the Company's statements concerning its business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

If you suffered a loss in Centene you have until January 13, 2017 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
