NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2019--Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”) and KSF partner, the former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., remind investors with losses in excess of $100,000 that they have only until May 10, 2019 to file lead plaintiff applications in a securities class action lawsuit against Bridgepoint Education, Inc. (NYSE: BPI). Investor losses must relate to purchases of the Company’s securities between March 8, 2016 and March 7, 2019. This action is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.

About the Lawsuit

On March 7, 2019, Bridgepoint 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 flawed revenue recording process resulting in “material” accounting errors and 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.
