On February 23, 2023, Medical Properties announced its fourth quarter and full year 2022 financial results. Among other items, the Company disclosed an impairment of approximately $171 million on four properties leased to Prospect Medical Holdings (“Prospect”) and announced a plan to write off about $112 million for unbilled rent related to Prospect. 

On this news, Medical Properties stock price fell $1.06 per share, or 8.7%, to close at $11.14 per share on February 23, 2023.

The action alleges that Medical Properties made materially false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose to investors (1) that Prospect was facing significant pressures affecting the profitability of its Pennsylvania properties, (2) that, as a result, there was a significant risk that Prospect would be unable to meet its rental obligations owed to Medical Properties, and (3) that “given the elongated timing of the Pennsylvania recovery,” the Company was reasonably likely to record an impairment charge to the real estate value of the Pennsylvania properties, among other things.
