MEDICAL PROPERTIES TRUST, INC. – Twersky Law Group, a highly regarded and reputable law firm based in New York, wishes to inform investors about a significant development in the form of a class action lawsuit against Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (“Medical Properties Trust” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: MPW) and certain officers of the company. This lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all individuals and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired Medical Properties Trust, Inc. securities from May 23, 2023 through August 17, 2023 (the “Class Period”). Investors who acquired Medical Properties Trust securities during this defined timeframe are strongly encouraged to participate in this case by contacting email@example.com. The deadline to file a motion for appointment of lead plaintiff is November 28, 2023.
The fundamental objective of this class action lawsuit is to recover for the benefit of investors who purchased Medical Properties Trust securities during the Class Period, the losses they sustained as a consequence of the misleading statements made by Defendants in violation of the federal securities laws.
ALLEGATIONS AGAINST MEDICAL PROPERTIES TRUST, INC.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Recap Transaction was subject to regulatory approval and had in fact been placed on hold by the DMHC; (ii) accordingly, MPW had misrepresented the regulatory process for the Recap Transaction’s approval; (iii) as a result of the foregoing, MPW overstated the approval prospects and benefits of the Recap Transaction; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s public statements regarding the Recap Transaction were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On August 18, 2023, the Wall Street Journal published an article entitled “Cracks Deepen for America’s Biggest Hospital Landlord: Struggling Tenants, a Bailout on Hold”. That same day, MPW issued a press release responding to the WSJ Article, in which the Company downplayed the DMHC Order as a “standard, expected, and non-controversial part of the approval process for [the Recap Transaction]” and attempted to excuse the Company’s non-disclosure of the DMHC Order to shareholders by stating that the “DMHC’s request was deemed immaterial to [MPW’s] financials and thus did not require disclosure.” Despite MPW’s attempts to reassure investors, following publication of the WSJ Article, MPW’s stock price fell $0.57 per share, or 7.6%, to close at $6.93 per share on August 18, 2023.
