Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in Centene Corporation To Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, July 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Centene Corporation ("Centene" or the "Company") (NYSE: CNC).

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that Centene's 2012 outlook provided on February 7, 2012, lacked a reasonable basis when made due to existing and known competitive pressures.  On June 11, 2012, the Company cut its full-year profit and revenue forecasts due to higher-than-expected medical costs.

Also on June 11, 2012, the Company (1) revised its 2012 guidance; (2) disclosed that expenses were above initially projected for commercial polices sold by its Celtic Insurance unit; and (3) revealed that Centene was evaluating goodwill and intangible assets at the unit, which may result in a non-cash charge of about $28 million.  Upon this news, shares of Centene stock fell from a close of $35.47 the previous business day to a close of $27.58 per share.
