Holzer & Holzer, LLC announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania on behalf of investors who purchased Education Management Corporation (“Education Management” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:EDMC) securities between August 8, 2012 and September 16, 2014. The complaint alleges, among other things, Education Management and certain of its officers issued false and misleading statements during that time regarding the company’s business, operational and compliance policies. According to the Complaint, Education Management violated federal securities laws by allegedly failing to adequately disclose that: 1) the Company was overstating revenue by not properly increasing its bad debt reserve upon student withdrawal; 2) it was overstating its goodwill; 3) it was manipulating federal student loan and grant programs in order to appear to be in compliance with federal regulations enacted in June 2011; and 4) otherwise engaged in improper recruiting and enrollment practices. On September 16, 2014, the Company announced that it was delaying the release of its Annual Report, which sent its stock price down significantly.

If you purchased EDMC securities between August 8, 2012 and September 16, 2014, or if you have continuously held EDMC securities since at least August 8, 2012, and you are interested in your legal rights, you are encouraged to contact Corey D. Holzer, Esq. via email at, or Marshall P. Dees, Esq. via email at, or via toll-free telephone at (888) 508-6832.
