According to the lawsuit, Defendants made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) ITT's financial statements contained errors related to the accounting of the PEAKS Trust and PEAKS Program; and (2) the Company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting. On May 22, 2014, ITT announced that it was withdrawing its 2014 financial forecast and investors should no longer rely upon it due to uncertainties surrounding the accounting of its PEAKS private student loan program. This adverse news caused ITT shares to fall 21%. Then on June 24, 2014, ITT disclosed that its quarterly reports for the first three quarters of 2013 should not be relied upon and had to be restated. 

On September 19, 2014, ITT revealed that it was notified by the SEC that it has made a preliminary determination to recommend an enforcement action against the Company concerning two private education loan programs for its students. On this news, ITT shares fell over 35%.
