Corrections Corporation of America (CXW)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Corrections Corporation of America To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Corrections Corporation of America (“Corrections Corporation” or the “Company”) (NYSE:CXW) of the October 24, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee on behalf of all those who purchased Corrections Corporation securities between February 27, 2012 and August 17, 2016 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Grae v. Corrections Corporation of America et al, No. 3:16-cv-02267 was filed on August 23, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Aleta Arthur Trauger.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Corrections Corporation’s facilities lacked adequate safety and security standards and were less efficient at offering correctional services than the Federal Bureau of Prisons’ (“BOP”) facilities; (ii) Corrections Corporation’s rehabilitative services for inmates were less effective than those provided by BOP; (iii) the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) was unlikely to renew and/or extend its contracts with the Company; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

Specifically, on August 18, 2016, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates announced the DOJ’s decision to end its use of private prisons, after officials concluded that the facilities are both less safe and effective at providing correctional services than those run by the federal government.

After this announcement, Corrections Corporation’s share price fell from $27.22 per share on August 17, 2016 to a closing price of $17.57 on August 18, 2016—a $9.65 or a 35.45% drop.
