Laureate Education says DOJ closed inquiry into possible FCPA violations

In a regulatory filing last night, Laureate Education disclosed that on November 21, external counsel for the company received a letter from the U.S. Department of Justice stating that the DOJ had closed its inquiry into possible violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. "In the letter, the DOJ acknowledged our voluntary disclosure and full cooperation in its investigation, and the remediation that we have undertaken. The Company previously had received a letter from the Division of Enforcement of the Securities and Exchange Commission stating that it had concluded its investigation as to the Company with respect to such matters and did not intend to recommend an enforcement action against the Company by the SEC. As previously disclosed, during the fourth quarter of 2014, we discovered irregularities with respect to a donation by our network institution in Turkey, Istanbul Bilgi University, to a charitable foundation. In June 2016, the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors initiated an internal investigation into this matter with the assistance of external counsel. We voluntarily disclosed the investigation and facts related to the donation to the DOJ and the SEC, and the Company fully cooperated with those agencies in their subsequent inquiry and investigation relating to this matter," the company stated in the filing. In afternoon trading, Laureate Education shares are down 39c, or 2.6%, to $14.57.

Chilean election result a material positive for Laureate Education, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Shlomo Rosenbaum said Chile's election result is a "material positive" for Laureate Education as Sebastian Pinera is less likely to support legislation for free post-secondary education, the prospect of which has weighed on the stock. He maintains a Buy rating and $18 price target on Laureate shares.

Outperform
Laureate Education valuation compelling at current levels, says Baird
Baird analyst Jeffrey Meuler noted Laureate Education announced its fourth divestiture since late November as part of its plans to divest five to seven locations. He believes its current valuation remains compelling as the divestitures are being done at attractive multiples well above their public market value. Meuler sees an improving risk/reward profile and reiterated his Outperform rating and $16 price target on Laureate Education shares.

Overweight
Laureate Education risk/reward compelling at current levels, says Piper Jaffray
Enrollment growth, margin upside and balance sheet improvement are the catalysts for Laureate Education shares, Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Appert tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects to see all three in 2018. Further, positive resolution of Chilean uncertainty and elimination of the preferred stock overhang could also serve as catalysts, Appert adds. He finds Laureate's risk/reward as compelling and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. The analyst upped his price target for the name to $20 from $19.
