San Diego, CA — 11/07/2017 — The acquisition of Capella Education Company is under investigation over possible wrongdoing. The investigation was announced for investors in NASDAQ:CPLA shares concerning whether the takeover of Capella Education Company by Strayer Education, Inc for a value of approximately $80.26 per share is unfair.

On October 30, 2017, Strayer Education, Inc. (NASDAQ:STRA) and Capella Education Company (NASDAQ:CPLA) announced that they have agreed to combine in an all-stock merger of equals transaction, creating a national leader in education innovation. Pursuant to the terms of the merger agreement, Strayer and Capella will combine in an all-stock merger of equals with Capella shareholders receiving 0.875 Strayer shares for each Capella share.
