About the Lawsuit

The complaint alleges that HCP violated securities laws by failing to disclose during the class period that one of the Company's major clients, ManorCare, was engaged in rampant billing fraud that may have generated more than $6 billion in false claims for reimbursement, and that the value of HCP's interest in ManorCare was questionable.

On April 21, 2015, HCP disclosed that the U.S. Department of Justice had intervened in whistleblower lawsuits. Then on May 5, 2015, HCP disclosed a recorded $478 million non-cash impairment charge related to certain of its lease arrangements with ManorCare. Then on February 9, 2016, HCP disclosed that its equity stake in ManorCare had been written down to zero, and that it had taken an $836 million non-cash impairment on its ManorCare lease assets and placed all of its ManorCare real estate assets on a "Watch List."
