Churchill III is a blank check company that has partnered with MultiPlan, a healthcare costs specialist.
In July 2020, Churchill III announced that it had entered into a preliminary agreement to merge with MultiPlan, with shareholder approval. MultiPlan is a New York-based provider of end-to-end expense management solutions for the US healthcare industry.
The class action lawsuit against Multiplan alleges that the defendants made materially false and misleading statements about the business, operations and prospects of MultiPlan in connection with the merger and during the collection period.
On November 11, 2020 – just one month after the merger was completed – Muddy Waters released a report on Churchill III entitled “MultiPlan: Private Equity Necrophilia Meets The Big Money Heist 2020” (the “Muddy Waters Report”). Among other things, the Muddy Waters Report revealed that MultiPlan was about to lose its largest customer, UnitedHealthcare, which was estimated to cost the company up to 35% of its revenue and 80% of its indebted free cash flow within two years.
As a result of this news, the price of Churchill III securities fell. By November 12, 2020, the price of Churchill III’s Class A common stock had dropped to a low of just $ 6.12 per share, nearly 40% below the price at which shareholders bought their shares at the time of the shareholders’ vote Merger could have given back.
