Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Reminds Investors in Apollo Education Group, Inc. (APOL) of Imminent Deadline to Protect Your Rights

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2014) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Apollo Education Group, Inc. ("Apollo Education" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: APOL) of the June 23, 2014 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Apollo Education and certain executives.

A complaint has been filed in the District of Arizona on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Apollo Education securities between October 19, 2011 and April 1, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.

Specifically, the action alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Apollo Education engaged in the manipulation of federal student loan and grant programs in order to appear to be compliant with federal regulations enacted in June 2011; (ii) the Company violated federal regulations enacted in June 2011 by engaging in predatory and deceptive recruiting and enrollment practices; and (iii) Apollo Education created the appearance that it was compliant with government regulations by engaging in certain practices, including loan forbearance programs.

On April 1, 2014, the Company disclosed that the Department of Education had issued a subpoena to Apollo Education, seeking the production of documents and detailed information regarding a broad range of activities, including marketing, recruitment, enrollment, and financial aid processing.

Following this news, the Company's shares declined by $3.10 per share, or over 8%, to close at $32.06 per share on April 2, 2014.
