The Complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

-- Bridgepoint’s processes for recording revenue for its Corporate Full Tuition Grant program were inaccurate; -- Bridgepoint maintained deficient internal controls; -- due to the foregoing deficiencies, Bridgepoint was prone to and did commit material accounting errors related to revenue, provision for bad debts, accounts receivable and deferred revenue, which resulted in the overstatement of revenue and expenses; and -- as a result, Bridgepoint’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On March 7, 2019, Bridgepoint disclosed that its previously issued financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 should no longer be relied upon. Bridgepoint further disclosed the “restatement primarily relates to the revenue for the Full Tuition Grant program portion of our student contracts.”

On this news, Bridgepoint’s stock price fell sharply, closing at $6.23 per share on March 7, 2019, a decline of 34%.
