Saxena White P.A. Files Securities Fraud Class Action Against Adeptus Health Inc. With Expanded Class Period

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - November 17, 2016) - Saxena White P.A. has filed a securities fraud class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas against Adeptus Health Inc. ("Adeptus Health" or the "Company") (NYSE: ADPT) and certain of the Company's executive officers and/or directors and underwriters. This class action is filed on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the Class A common shares of the Company during the period between June 25, 2014 and November 1, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period). The complaint brings forth claims for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

In addition, the class action complaint is also filed on behalf of investors who purchased Adeptus Health's common stock pursuant or traceable to the Company's initial public offering of its common stock (the "IPO") on or about June 25, 2014 and the Company's secondary public offerings on or about May 5, 2015, July 29, 2015, and June 2, 2016 (together with the IPO, the "Offerings"). The complaint brings forth claims for violations of the Securities Act of 1933.

Adeptus Health is one of the largest operators of independent freestanding emergency rooms in the United States and has a large network of partnerships with certain healthcare systems. The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose to investors that: (i) Adeptus Health was engaged in the widespread overbilling of patients, including low-acuity patients; (ii) Adeptus Health's billing practices were causing decreases in patient volume and would subject it to decreased revenues; (iii) the Company's billing practices exposed it to major financial, reputational, legal and regulatory risks; (iv) the Company's financial statements were not compliant with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"); and (v) as a result, the Company's statements were false and misleading at all relevant times.
