OSCAR’S ALLEGED MISCONDUCT
In March, 2021, Oscar conducted its IPO, selling 36,391,946 shares of Class A common stock at a price of $39.00 per share. Oscar received net proceeds of approximately $1.3 billion from the IPO.
On August 12, 2021, Oscar disclosed that its Medical Loss Ratio (MLR) for the second quarter of 2021 was 82.4%, an increase of 2170 basis points year-over year, claiming that the increase was primarily driven by meaningfully lower utilization in 2Q20 as a result of COVID-19, as well as higher COVID-19 testing and treatment costs. Oscar also disclosed that its net loss for the quarter was $73.1 million, an increase of $32.1 million year-over-year.
Then, on November 10, 2021, Oscar disclosed that its third quarter 2021 MLR increased 920 basis points year-over-year, to 99.7%. Oscar claimed, again, that the MLR increase was primarily driven by higher net COVID costs, as well as several other purported reasons. Oscar also disclosed that its net loss for the quarter was $212.7 million, an increase of $133.6 million year-over-year.
Following this news, Oscar’s share price fell $4.05 per share, or 24.5%, to close at $12.47 per share on November 11, 2021. At the time of the filing of the complaint, Oscar stock has traded as low as $5.76 per share, a more than 85% decline from the $39.00 per share IPO price.

Oscar investors may, no later than July 11, 2022 seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
