About the Lawsuit

Bridgepoint and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On March 7, 2019, the Company disclosed that its financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 would be restated, and should not be relied upon, due in part to a revenue recording process that was “not designed with sufficient precision,” leading to “material” accounting errors relating to revenue, provision for bad debts, accounts receivable and deferred revenue, which resulted in the overstatement of revenue and expenses.

On this news, the price of Bridgepoint’s shares plummeted.

The case is Stein v. Bridgepoint Education, Inc. et al, 19-cv-00460.
