Brower Piven Alerts Shareholders of September 19, 2016 Deadline in Class Action Lawsuit and Encourages Investors With Losses in Excess of $100,000 From Investment in K12, Inc. to Contact the Firm - LRN

/EIN News/ -- STEVENSON, Md., Sept. 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of purchasers of K12, Inc. (NYSE:LRN) (“K12” or the “Company”) securities during the period between November 7, 2013, and October 27, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until September 19, 2016 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court.  The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action.  The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in K12 securities during the Class Period.  Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff.  No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the class period that (1) the Company was publishing misleading advertisements about students’ academic progress, parent satisfaction, their graduates’ eligibility for admission to the University of California and California State University, class sizes, the individualized and flexible nature of K12’s instruction, hidden costs, and the quality of the materials provided to students, and (2) that the Company submitted inflated student attendance numbers to the California Department of Education in order to collect additional funding opening up the Company to potential civil and criminal liability.

According to the complaint, following the October 27, 2015 revelations that the Company had disappointing first quarter 2016 revenue and that the Company had received a subpoena from the Attorney General of the State of California Bureau of Children’s Justice in connection with an investigation of for-profit virtual schools, the value of K12 shares declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in K12 securities purchased on or after November 7, 2013 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.  You may also request more information by contacting Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.  Brower Piven also encourages anyone with information regarding the Company’s conduct during the period in question to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
