Lead Plaintiff motion deadline
  • $TWOU stockholder filed a claim vs. 2U for misleading about its ability to maintain key university partnerships.
  • On November 10, 2023, $TWOU fell 56.72%, losing $3.5M+ in shareholder value.
  • 2U investors can join this case to be notified about potential recovery.
Case Details:

On November 9, 2023, 2U announced it would end its 15-year partnership with USC, with USC paying $40M for the exit.

The company mentioned "portfolio management activities" offsetting a 21% decline in enrollments due to a new marketing approach since mid-2022.

They also reported flat Degree Program revenue year-over-year, with total revenue down 1%, and a 3% decrease in Alternative Credential Segment revenue for the quarter.

After this announcement, $TWOU fell 56%, losing $3.5M+ in shareholder value.

On February 12, 2024, 2U announced that it has significant doubts about its ability to continue operating due to substantial debt and financial mismanagement.

On this news, $TWOU fell 59.33%.

Based on these events, $TWOU stockholder filed a claim against 2U and its leaders, accusing them of the following:
  • 2U struggled to maintain key university partnerships, leading to program cancellations.
  • Transitioning to a platform model reduced enrollments and overstated stability.
Considering all the representations, investors have reasons to suspect that 2U hid the loss of key partnerships, leading to reduced enrollments.
