According to the Complaint, Defendants misled investors by misrepresenting and concealing (1) Evolent’s business model was designed to inflate its revenue by extracting enormous fees at the expense of its operating partners such as Passport and, therefore, did not align its interests with those of its partners, (2) the model became increasingly unsustainable after Kentucky cut its reimbursement rates, (3) Evolent was draining Passport of functions, employees and money, further undermining Passport’s solvency, and (4) Passport was trying to sell itself for several months to avoid liquidation.
On May 29, 2019, Evolent shocked investors when it unexpectedly announced it was buying a controlling interest in Passport. This news drove the price of Evolent shares sharply lower.
“We’re focused on Defendants’ statements about having no plans to buy Passport or any other health plans for the foreseeable future may have misled investors,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
