The complaint alleges that Centene made materially false and misleading statements concerning the acquisition of Health Net, Inc. on March 24, 2016, as well as failed to disclose: that certain Health Net insurance programs were significantly underperforming, which led to the need to increase reserves to offset losses caused by these programs; that Centene overstated the financial prospects of Health Net; and that as a result of the above, the Company's statements its business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When this information was disclosed to the public, the value of Centene fell, causing investors harm.
