Filing Date: November 14, 2016
According to the law firm press release, on March 24, 2016, the Company completed the acquisition of Health Net, Inc. (“Health Net”) for approximately $6 billion, including the assumption of debt. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination, which requires that assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recognized at their fair values as of the acquisition date.
The complaint filed in this action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements concerning the recent acquisition of Health Net as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, including the underperformance of Health Net legacy insurance programs and the need to increase reserves to offset losses caused by these programs. The complaint further alleges that Defendants failed to inform investors (1) that certain Health Net insurance programs were significantly underperforming; (2) that Health Net’s insurance plans were generating material losses; (3) that Centene had overstated Health Net’s financial prospects; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Centene’s business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
This case was transferred to the Eastern District of Missouri on March 1, 2017. Plaintiffs filed an amended Complaint on July 17.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
