16:37 EDTBPIBridgepoint restates FY13 earnings results
On May 23, the management of Bridgepoint Education concluded that the company’s previously issued financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013, as well as for the interim periods included in that fiscal year, should no longer be relied upon because of errors related to revenue recognition that resulted in material misstatements of revenue, bad debt expense and accounts receivable. Management has concluded that there are material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting, as the company did not maintain effective controls over the selection and application of accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. related to revenue recognition and restricted cash. The company expects its restated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 included in the amended Form 10-K to differ from the amounts reported in the original filing. The restated amounts for the year ended December 31, 2013 are expected to be approximately as follows: Diluted EPS in a range of 81c-84c, as compared to 74c previously reported, and revenue in a range of $749.0M-$753.0M, as compared to $768.6M previously reported.

07:23 EDTBPIGovernment not looking to push other colleges out of business, says Wells Fargo
In the wake of Corinthian Colleges' (COCO) dissolution due to actions taken by the Department of Education, Wells Fargo thinks the government did not intend for this scenario to unfold. After speaking with unnamed "knowledgeable sources" about the issue, the firm does not expect the department to take similar actions in the future because doing so would create too much of a workload for the department, Wells believes. Publicly traded companies in the space include American Public Education (APEI), Apollo Education (APOL), Bridgepoint Education (BPI), Career Education (CECO), Corinthian Colleges (COCO), DeVry (DV), Grand Canyon (LOPE), ITT Educational (ESI) and Strayer (STRA).
