Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Capella Education Co. (“Capella” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS:CPLA) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct in seeking shareholders’ approval for the Company’s 2014 Capella Education Company Equity Incentive Plan.

Specifically, in the Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 24, 2014, the Board of Directors recommends that Capella’s shareholders vote to approve an increase of the total shares of common stock for issuance by 480,000 under the 2014 Capella Education Company Equity Incentive Plan. The issuance of these shares could have a substantial dilutive effect on the shares of Capella common stock.
