The Complaint charges Corinthian Colleges and certain of the Company's executive officers with violations of federal securities laws. Corinthian Colleges is a post-secondary education company that offers various diploma programs, as well as undergraduate and graduate-level degrees in the United States and Canada. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants knew or recklessly disregarded that their public statements concerning Corinthian Colleges’ financial performance and prospects were materially false and misleading. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company overstated its growth prospects by engaging in illicit and improper recruiting activities, which also had the effect of artificially inflating the Company’s reported results and future growth prospects; (2) the Company's financial results were overstated in that the Company’s colleges inflated tuition costs and its student loan repayment rates were well below levels required for participation in federal loan programs; (3) the Company failed to maintain adequate systems of internal operational or financial controls; and (4) based on the foregoing, defendants lacked a basis for their positive statements about the Company, its prospects and growth.
