  • Q4 results: Revenue fell below analysts' expectations, particularly in its Degree Program and Alternative Credentials segments. The company attributed this to lower enrollments in its coding boot camp offerings, indicating a specific area of struggle.

This downgrade reflects worries that high debt levels combined with performance declines could lead to potential bankruptcy if not addressed.
