NEW YORK, April 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of ITT Educational Services Inc. ("ITT" or the "Company") who purchased ITT common stock between April 22, 2010 and February 25, 2013 (the "Class Period"). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
The investigation concerns whether ITT and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On February 25, 2013, the Company disclosed that it received a subpoena from the Securities and Exchange Commission or SEC. The Company stated that, "in a letter accompanying the subpoena, the SEC states that it is conducting an investigation of us." The SEC's subpoena requests the production of documents and communications that, among other things, relate to the Company's actions and accounting associated with: (a) agreements that it entered into with an unaffiliated entity on February 20, 2009; and (b) agreements that it entered into with unrelated parties on January 20, 2010 to create a program, called the PEAKS Private Student Loan Program. Upon this news, shares of ITT fell $3.10 or 17% close at $15.53 per share on February 25, 2013.
