Case Summary

The Ontrak, Inc. class action lawsuit charges Ontrak and certain of its executives with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and seeks to represent purchasers or acquirers of Ontrak securities between November 5, 2020 and February 26, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  The Ontrak class action lawsuit was commenced on March 3, 2021 in the Central District of California and is captioned Farhar v. Ontrak, Inc., No. 21-cv-01987.

Ontrak is a healthcare company that offers a Predict-Recommend-Engage platform that organizes and automates healthcare data integration and analytics.  A critical component of this platform are Ontrak programs, which are designed to provide healthcare solutions to members with behavioral conditions that cause or exacerbate chronic medical conditions.

The Ontrak class action lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Ontrak’s largest customer evaluated Ontrak on a provider basis, valuing Ontrak’s performance based on achieving the lowest cost per medical visit rather than clinical outcomes or medical cost savings; (ii) as a result, Ontrak’s largest customer did not find Ontrak’s program to be effective and was reasonably likely to terminate its contract with Ontrak; (iii) because this customer accounted for a significant portion of Ontrak’s revenue, the loss of the customer would have an outsized impact on Ontrak’s financial results; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about Ontrak’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On March 1, 2021, Ontrak revealed that its largest customer had terminated its contract with Ontrak, effective June 26, 2021.  Ontrak stated that this customer “evaluated Ontrak on a provider basis” and “[a]s such, the customer evaluated [Ontrak’s] performance based on [its] ability to achieve the lowest possible cost per medical visit, and not on [its] clinical outcomes data or medical cost savings.” Ontrak also stated that “the coaching model which Ontrak has pioneered for over a decade was seen by the customer to be less relevant to their performance metrics.”  On this news, Ontrak’s share price fell by more than 46%, damaging investors.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Ontrak securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Ontrak class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.  A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Ontrak class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Ontrak class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery of the Ontrak action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.  If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff of the Ontrak class action lawsuit or have questions concerning your rights regarding the Ontrak class action lawsuit, please provide your information here or contact counsel, Michael Albert of Robbins Geller, at 800/449-4900 or 619/231-1058 or via e-mail at malbert@rgrdlaw.com  Lead plaintiff motions for the Ontrak class action lawsuit must be filed with the court no later than May 3, 2021.
