About the Lawsuit
CTPartners and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

On December 8, 2014, the New York Post published a report that female employees of CTPartners filed discrimination charges against the company with the Equal Employment Opportunity Committee, claiming that the Company stripped female employees of profitable accounts, held them to higher standards than their male colleagues, and subjected them to lewd behavior, including a booze-fueled naked romp held by a top partner. That same day, CTPartners withdrew a stock offering that had been announced less than a day before. On this news, the price of CTPartners's shares plummeted by 24%. 

On January 21, 2015, CTPartners announced preliminary results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014, including a net loss for the fourth quarter expected to be in the range of $0.3-$0.6 million, purportedly due to higher than anticipated operating expenses related to business development activity, increased marketing and upgrading the search process and corporate infrastructure. On this news, the price of CTPartners's stock fell by 30%.

Then, on January 28, 2015, CTPartners withdrew its preliminary fourth quarter and year-end guidance provided only one week earlier and revised downward its earnings guidance. CTPartners stated that the downward revision was due to a $1.7 million increase in "compensation expense" for employee bonuses. CTPartners also withdrew a proposed stock offering that had been announced only two days prior. On this news, the price of CTPartners stock fell by over 33%.
