The filed complaint alleges that throughout the class period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

-- Diplomat had downplayed its success in integrating and growing its PBM business, which included LDI Integrated and National Pharmaceutical, two companies Diplomat had acquired in late 2017; -- consequently, Diplomat would need to record a non-cash impairment charge upwards of approximately $630 million relating to its PBM business and these 2017 acquisitions; -- due to the foregoing, Diplomat would withdraw its preliminary 2019 full-year outlook issued less than seven weeks prior; and -- as a result, defendants’ statements about Diplomat’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On February 22, 2019, Diplomat filed a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announcing it was postponing the release of its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 due to a “recent determination” that it would need to record a non-cash impairment charge upwards of approximately $630 million relating to 2017 acquisitions for its PBM business.

On this news, Diplomat’s share price fell from $13.46 per share on February 21, 2019 to a closing price of $5.87 on February 22, 2019, a 56.4% drop.
