NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against 2U, Inc. ("2U" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: TWOU) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired 2U securities between February 25, 2019 and July 30, 2019, both dates inclusive. Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/twou.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) 2U faced increasing competition in online education and particularly regarding graduate programs; (2) 2U faced certain program-specific issues that negatively impacted its performance; (3) as a result, the Company's business model was not sustainable; (4) 2U would slow its program launches; and (5) consequently, Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On July 30, 2019, after-market hours, 2U announced a large loss for the second quarter 2019. The Company's Chief Executive Officer, Christopher "Chip" Paucek said that the Company was working toward a "defined path to profitability by tempering short-term growth projections and leveraging our scale to drive greater operational efficiencies across the business." After this announcement, analysts demoted 2U and some mentioned that its model was "breaking." Following this news, 2U stock dropped $23.70 per share or almost 65% to close at $12.80.
