BENSALEM, Pa. -- (Business Wire)
Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has
been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District
of New York on behalf of all purchasers of the common stock of ITT
Educational Services, Inc. (“ITT” or the “Company”) (NYSE:ESI) between
April 22, 2010 and February 25, 2013, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
ITT provides postsecondary degree programs in the United States.
The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period the Company and
certain of its officers and directors violated federal securities laws
by issuing false and misleading statements. On February 22, 2013, ITT
announced that the Securities and Exchange Commission was investigating
the Company’s involvement in certain private student-loan agreements.
According to ITT, the Company had received a subpoena from the SEC on
February 8, 2013, along with a letter informing the Company of the
investigation. The subpoena issued by the SEC requested documents
related to a 2009 loan risk-sharing agreement and ITT’s PEAKS Private
Student Loan Program. As a result of this news, ITT stock declined $3.10
per share, or nearly 17%, to close on February 25, 2013, at $15.53 per
share, on unusually heavy volume.
No class has yet been certified in this action. Until a class is
certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. If
you purchased ITT common stock during the Class Period, you have certain
rights, and have until May 10, 2013 to move for lead plaintiff status.
To be a member of the class you need not take any action at this time,
and you may retain counsel of your choice. If you wish to discuss this
action or have any questions concerning this Notice or your rights or
interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith,
