Lead plaintiff deadline approaching: kessler topaz meltzer & check, llp announces deadline in securities fraud class action lawsuit filed against chegg, inc.

RADNOR, Pa, FEB 2022 The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP informs investors that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed against Chegg, Inc.

The action charges Chegg with violations of the federal securities laws, including omissions and fraudulent misrepresentations relating to the company’s business, operations, and prospects. As a result of Chegg’s materially misleading statements to the public, Chegg investors have suffered significant losses.

Chegg operates a direct-to-student learning platform. Chegg’s services include subscription services and required materials that comprise its print textbooks and eTextbooks.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants touted that Chegg was “in a unique position to impact the future of the higher education ecosystem” and that the primary cause of Chegg’s success was its “strong brand and momentum” which would allow Chegg “to continue to grow and take advantage of the ever-expanding opportunities in the learner economy.”

The truth was revealed on November 1, 2021, when Chegg reported its financial results revealing fewer-than-expected enrollments while failing to provide 2022 guidance. In addressing these concerns, CEO Dan Rosensweig stated, “a combination of variants, increased employment opportunities and compensation, along with fatigue, have all led to significantly fewer enrollments than expected this semester. And those students who have enrolled are taking fewer and less rigorous classes and are receiving less graded assignments.” Following this news, shares of Chegg plunged nearly 50% on November 2, 2021.


Chegg investors may, no later than February 22, 2022, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP encourages Chegg investors who have suffered significant losses to contact the firm directly to acquire more information.


A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. The lead plaintiff is usually the investor or small group of investors who have the largest financial interest and who are also adequate and typical of the proposed class of investors. The lead plaintiff selects counsel to represent the lead plaintiff and the class and these attorneys, if approved by the court, are lead or class counsel. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision of whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.
