Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Apollo Education Group, Inc. ("Apollo" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:APOL) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to consortium led by private investment firm The Vistria Group for approximately $1.1 billion.

The Company's stockholders will only receive $9.50 in cash for each share of Company common stock they own. However, the offer is below at least one analyst target price of $10 per share and the 52-week high of $28.66 per share.
