TWOU CLASS ACTION REMINDER: Hagens Berman Reminds TWOU Investors of October 7, 2019 Lead Plaintiff Deadline; Investors Who Lost $50,000+ May Contact Firm
San Francisco - Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP reminds investors in 2U, Inc. (NASDAQ: TWOU) of the pending securities class action and lead plaintiff deadline.
If you invested in 2U between February 26, 2018 and July 30, 2019 (the “Class Period”) and suffered significant losses ($50,000+) you may qualify to be a lead plaintiff – one who selects and oversees the attorneys prosecuting the case.
If you wish to serve as a lead plaintiff in this case, you must move the Court no later than October 7, 2019 (the “Lead Plaintiff deadline”). Contact Hagens Berman immediately for more information about the case and being a lead plaintiff:
or contact Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing
According to the Complaint, Defendants concealed the following: (1) 2U faced increasing competition in online education and particularly regarding graduate programs; (2) 2U faced program-specific issues that negatively impacted its performance, including 2U’s grad business; (3) 2U’s business model was unsustainable; and (4) 2U would slow its program launches.
On July 30, 2019, the market learned the truth when Defendants announced disappointing Q2 2019 financial results and revised U2’s 2019 guidance to double its expected loss. Analysts immediately downgraded the stock, including Oppenheimer, which said 2U was “uninvestable given the uncertainty over its business model.”
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and the extent to which 2U may have misled investors about the sustainability of its business model,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding 2U should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program. Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC. For more information, call Reed Kathrein at 510-725-3000 or email TWOU@hbsslaw.com.
