Press Release

EQUITY ALERT: Rosen Law Firm Announces Filing of Securities Class Action Lawsuit Against Pearson plc – PSO

New York, N.Y., March 3, 2017. Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of Pearson plc securities (NYSE: PSO) from January 21, 2016 through January 17, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Pearson investors under the federal securities laws.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.

The complaint alleges that defendants during the Class Period made overly optimistic projections for 2017 and 2018 regarding its U.S. education business when, in reality, students were not likely to purchase Pearson’s products when more affordable alternatives were available. On January 18, 2017, Pearson revealed that it no longer expected to achieve its operative profit guidance for 2018 as a result of “[t]he North American higher education courseware market being much weaker than expected” and that Pearson would “rebase” its dividend “from 2017 onwards.” Following this news, shares of Pearson fell approximately 29% to close at $7.13 per share on January 18, 2017, damaging investors.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than April 25, 2017.
