The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business and financial results, and that the Company failed to maintain proper internal controls to ensure that risk-sharing agreements were properly recorded.
On February 22, 2013, ITT filed its Form 10-K with the SEC for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, disclosing that the Company was under investigation by the SEC in relation to possible involvement in some private student-loan agreements. ITT also revealed that on February 8, 2013, it had received a subpoena from the SEC requesting documents related to a 2009 loan risk-sharing agreement and ITT's PEAKS Private Student Loan Program. Upon this news, ITT's stock fell $3.10 per share to close at $15.53 per share on February 25, 2013, a one-day decline of nearly 17% on volume of over 1.7 million shares.
