After hours news revealed:
Kindred Healthcare confirmed it is engaged in active discussions with the DOJ in an effort to find a mutually acceptable resolution to the investigation of RehabCare Group (KND) :The skeleton dances with renewed vigor.
Based on the progress of continuing settlement discussions through October 2015, the Company, in accordance with GAAP, recorded an additional $30 million loss provision in the third quarter of 2015 (for a total loss reserve of $125 million) related to this matter. The Company recorded a $95 million loss reserve for this matter in the first quarter of 2015 and disclosed an estimated settlement range of $95 million to $125 million. The Company accrued the estimated loss contingency in the first quarter of 2015 at the minimum of the estimated range in accordance with GAAP as no amount within that range was a better estimate than any other amount. These continuing settlement discussions also indicate that a corporate integrity agreement will likely be required as part of any final settlement related to this matter.
The discussions are ongoing, and until they are concluded, there can be no certainty about the timing or likelihood of a definitive resolution, the scope of any potential restrictions that may be agreed upon in connection with a settlement or the cost of a final settlement.
