    Healthcare Services Group, based in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, engages in
    the management, administrative, and operating services to the
    housekeeping, laundry, linen, facility maintenance, and dietary service
    departments to nursing homes, retirement complexes, rehabilitation
    centers, and hospitals in the United States.

    The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants
    failed to disclose that (1) Healthcare Services Group was strategically
    rounding its quarterly earnings per share (“EPS”) upward for more than a
    decade, thus misrepresenting the Company’s financial condition
    throughout the Class Period; (2) the Securities and Exchange Commission
    (“SEC”) had written to the Company in November 2017 to inquire into its
    EPS rounding practices; and (3) the SEC delivered a subpoena to the
    Company in March 2018 to produce documents in connection with its
    calculation of EPS.

    On March 4, 2019, in a Form 8-K filed with the SEC, Healthcare Services
    Group disclosed it had received a letter in November 2017 from the SEC
    regarding an inquiry into the Company’s EPS calculation practices and
    requesting that the Company voluntarily provide certain information and
    documents relating to its EPS rounding and reporting practices. The
    Company further disclosed it also had received a subpoena in March 2018
    from the SEC in connection with those matters and had been providing
    information and documents to the SEC.

    Following those disclosures, the Company’s stock price declined by $4.96
    per share, or 13.14%, to close at $32.78 on March 4, 2019.
