According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of CTPartners Executive Search Inc (NYSEMKT:CTP) common shares between February 26, 2014 and January 28, 2015, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws.
More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between February 26, 2014 and January 28, 2015, defendants allegedly repeatedly highlighted CTPartners Executive Search’s reputation within the industries in which it operated based on the “integrity” of its employees and on the strength and qualifications of its search consultants. Further, the plaintiff alleges that while CTPartners Executive Search represented that these consultants were promoted based on “objective” and “transparent” criteria related to their merits, and that this purported meritocracy had been and would be a key to the Company’s ongoing success, the defendants, however, allegedly failed to disclose that CTPartners Executive Search allegedly operated as a “den of discrimination” that subjected employees to crude, improper and discriminatory practices, which threatened the Company’s ability to raise capital, retain employees or successfully execute its core business functions. The plaintiff claims that as a result of certain defendants’ statements, CTPartners Executive Search common stock traded at artificially inflated prices between February 26, 2014 and January 28, 2015, reaching a high of $23.15 per share on November 12, 2014.
CTPartners Executive Search Inc reported that its annual Total Revenue rose from $132.92 million in 2012 to $134.28 million in 2013 and that its Net Loss declined from $3.58 million in 2012 to $1.63 million in 2013. Shares of CTPartners Executive Search Inc (NYSEMKT:CTP) grew from $3.15 per share in May 2013 to as high as $23.13 per share in November 2014.
On December 8, 2014, a media outlet reported that a complaint had been filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Committee by a former employee of CTPartners Executive Search Inc. The complaint reportedly detailed CTPartners Executive Search Inc as “a den of discrimination where women are stripped of profitable accounts, held to a higher standard than their male colleagues and subjected to lewd behavior.” That same day CTPartners Executive Search Inc announced that it is withdrawing, effective immediately, the previously announced public offering of 702,703 shares of common stock by the Company and 404,767 shares of common stock by Brian M. Sullivan, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, due to market conditions.
On January 21, 2015, CTPartners Executive Search Inc announced its preliminary fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2014 financial results. CTPartners Executive Search Inc announced preliminary adjusted earnings per share (“EPS”) for the quarter of $0.06 to $0.08 per share.
Then, on January 28, 2015, CTPartners Executive Search Inc announced that it is revising its fourth quarter and full year 2014 preliminary earnings results previously announced on January 21, 2015. CTPartners Executive Search Inc said that the revision is a result of a $1.7 million increase in the Company’s estimate of operating expenses for the fourth quarter primarily due to compensation expense associated with consultant performance bonuses. Shares of CTPartners Executive Search Inc (NYSEMKT:CTP) declined to as low as $3.01 per share on January 29, 2015.
