ATI Physical Therapy, Inc. (ATIP) Made Misleading Statements Regarding its Business, Operations, and Prospects

According to the complaint, Fortress Value Acquisition Corp. II (“FVAC”) was a special purpose acquisition company that went public in August 2020. ATI is an outpatient physical therapy company that owns and operates nearly 900 clinics across 25 states. On June 17, 2021, ATI became public via a business combination with FVAC (“business combination”).

During the relevant period, the Company stated it was “focused on accelerating hiring to serve outsized demand,” noting it was the “Employer of Choice for PT Clinicians” and touted its staffing strategy, claiming that it would achieve “significant labor savings through more productive staffing model.”

On July 26, 2021, ATI reported its financial results for second quarter 2021, the period in which the business combination was complete. ATI reported that “the acceleration of attrition among [its] therapists in the second quarter and continuing into the third quarter, combined with the intensifying competition for clinicians in the labor market, prevented us from being able to meet the demand we have and increased our labor costs.” Though ATI was implementing certain remedial actions, the Company reduced its fiscal 2021 forecast due to the foregoing factors. On this news, the Company’s share price fell $3.62, or 43%, to close at $4.72 per share on July 26, 2021, and declined an additional 19% the next trading session.
