The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the Company's failure to disclose during the Class Period, that the process of developing a unified product offering after the merger of Allscripts-Misys Healthcare Solutions, Inc. and Eclypsis Corporation in August 2010 had suffered debilitating setbacks, including major undisclosed schisms among the most senior levels of the Company, which ultimately resulted in the loss of key personnel and harmful upheaval in Company leadership, that a material portion of Allscripts' revenue and net income was predicated on the successful integration of these systems, and substantial business relationships had been destroyed by the Company's inability to make material progress in this area. According to the complaint, after, on April 26, 2012, the Company reported earnings sharply below guidance and expectations, as well as the termination of the Chairman of its Board of Directors, the resignation of three Company directors, and the resignation the Company's Chief Financial Officer, the value of Allscripts shares declined significantly.
If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
