Orthodontic Centers Of Amer Sues Orthodontists, Dentists

10-22-03 04:10 PM EST

METAIRIE, La. (Dow Jones)--Orthodontic Centers of America Inc. (OCA), beset by lawsuits from at least 46 dental practices affiliated with its OrthAlliance unit, filed suit against two law firms and a number of dentists represented by those firms in other litigation with the company.

In a press release Wednesday, Orthodontic, which provides business services to 365 dental practices, said the two law firms conspired to persuade its affiliated practices to breach their contracts.

One of the attorneys being sued, Richard Goldstein of Goldstein, Tanen & Trench, said Orthodontic filed a similar suit against his firm earlier this year in Florida, but then sought a voluntary dismissal. Goldstein said he looks forward to defending the case.

Efforts to reach the other defendant, Lock, Liddell & Sapp of Houston, weren't immediately successful.

The company has faced a wave of lawsuits following its 2001 acquisition of OrthAlliance. The former OrthAlliance affiliates allege that they are being overcharged for services and that their employment agreements violate state laws prohibiting fee splitting as well as the corporate practice of dentistry.

A Texas court in March ruled that employment contracts with a dozen dentists at a single practice there were invalid. At least four other state courts have upheld the contracts, and Thomas Sandeman, chief financial officer, said the company is appealing the Texas ruling, which applied only to a single lawsuit. About 38 of Orthodontic's affiliated practices are in Texas.

On Tuesday, Orthodontic filed a counter suit against two affiliate practices in Texas, alleging breach of contract and seeking a declaratory judgment that its contracts with the two practices are valid under state law.

About 39.9% of Orthodontic's public float are held as short interest. Its shares changed hands recently at $8.84 a share, down 44 cents, or 4.7%.

C'è un 40% di pubblic float tenuto come short.... :eek:
Sapete da che livelli....?!

Mi sembra ci sia una guerra in atto sul titolo... è sceso per motivi poco legati alla finanza in senso stretto...

E' shortata probabilemte dai 30$....poi gli short sono aumentati....fino ai 4$ della scorsa primavera....
naturalmente gli utili nel frattempo sono cresciuti di nuovo e sono gli stessi (vediamo la pross. trimestrale per conferma) di quando OCA stava tra i 20 e i 30$ per diversi anni....
piu informazioni le trovi su un altro vecchio post..

ciao
 
Bisogna capire fino a quando questi vorranno tenersi short...
Il flottante è comunque modesto in rapporto alla totalità della capitalizzazione...

Boh......... sembra troppo un affarone.... lo sara? :cool:
 
Raymond James Is Cutting Orthodontic Centers of America 2004 Estimate To 1.11 From 1.23 Related Stocks OCA

--------------------------------

Uno shorter che cerca di ricoprisi in tempo?
 
(Apr 02, 2003).. Currently, institutional holders own 105% of the available shares...

On the surface, the price is due to the presence of lawsuits related to a merger, however assets acquired during the merger that are in dispute are not carried on their financials in 44 of 46 cases. Consequently they were written off prior to the suits being filed. I suspect that win or lose they will have to offset goodwill with assets as cases are settled. It would even be theoretically possible to be required to take in income if they lost. If they lose, the orthos will need to buy back their practices. If they win, OCA will continue to provide the administrative and business elements of their practice. It appears that the docs were originally bought out by one of two firms that merged for cash and stock. Unfortunately the stock tanked and OCA bought out the firm cheaply locking in the docs loss. The docs are suing for breach of contract by the premerged firm by allowing their losses to be locked in.

I don't have any experience with a stock this short. I know, abstractly, a stock could have 75% of its available shares short, but that assumes availability of inventory, willingness on the part of dealers, price levels etc. I wonder where the real economic point were shortages of shares to be shorted starts happening. Currently, institutional holders own 105% of the available shares.
 
Se parte la ricerca di ricoperture sembrerebbe non possono neppure trovare le azioni sul mercato per farlo....

Ragà questa è una bomba ad orologeria.... :eek:
