Career Education operates colleges, schools, and universities that provide educational services in career-oriented disciplines primarily in the United States. The Complaint names Career Education and certain of the Company’s directors and officers as defendants. It is alleged, that during the Class Period, Career Education reported inflated and false Placement Rates to the Accrediting Counsel for Independent Colleges and Schools (“ACICS”), the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (“ACCSC”) and the Company’s other accrediting agencies, and, as a result, misled its investors as to the health and condition of the Company, in particular its ability to continue to receive Title IV Funding. On May 17, 2011, Career Education announced that it had received a subpoena from the Attorney General of the State of New York (the “NYAG”). The subpoena requested documents pertaining to student employment outcomes and Placement Rates of graduates, among other items, in connection with the NYAG’s investigation into whether the Company and certain of its schools complied with certain New York state consumer protection, securities, finance and other laws.
