CAPELLA EDUCATION COMPANY SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Former SEC Attorney Willie Briscoe Believes the Merger with Strayer Education, Inc. May be Unfair to Shareholders

Share:

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie
Briscoe
is investigating potential claims against the Board of
Directors of Capella Education Company ("Capella") (NASDAQ:CPLA)
concerning the merger with Strayer Education, Inc. ("Strayer") (NASDAQ: STRA). Under the terms of the agreement, valued at approximately $1.9
billion, Capella shareholders will only receive 0.86 share of Strayer
per Capella share owned. Based on the closing price of Strayer before
the deal was announced, the consideration is valued at approximately
$80.26 per share, which is significantly lower than at least one
analyst's estimated value of $90.00.

If you are an affected investor, and you want to learn more about the
investigation or if you have information that you believe would be
helpful to our investigation of the fairness of the proposed
transaction, contact Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC via

or by calling (888) 809-2750. There is no cost or fee to you.

The investigation centers on whether Capella's Board of Directors is
acting in the shareholders' best interests, whether the board considered
alternatives to the acquisition, and whether the board has employed an
adequate process to review and act on the proposed transaction. Notably,
at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance believes the true inherent
value of Capella could be as high as $90.00 per share.
