On March 6, 2019, during aftermarket hours, Bridgepoint disclosed that “the Company’s previously issued unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 (the “Restated Periods”), should no longer be relied upon because of errors. Additionally, the Company’s earnings and press releases and similar communications to the extent that they relate to our financial statements for the Restated Periods should no longer be relied upon.” The Company further disclosed that “the Company determined that the process used for recording the revenue for the Full Tuition Grant program portion of our student contracts and the related judgments and estimates were not designed with sufficient precision. As a result, the Company identified errors, relating to revenue, provision for bad debts, accounts receivable and deferred revenue, which resulted in the overstatement of revenue and expenses for the Restated Periods. The errors described above were material to the Restated Periods...”
