Item  8.01    Other Events.


On April 26, 2005, BearingPoint, Inc. (the “Company”) became aware of press reports that a series of class action lawsuits have been filed against it and certain of its current and former officers and directors. Based upon these press reports, the Company believes that the complaints allege violations of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder in respect of the highly likely restatement of the Company’s financial statements, the goodwill impairment charge in the Company’s Europe, Middle East and Africa segment and the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. It is possible that additional lawsuits concerning these and similar matters will be threatened or filed. The Company has not yet received service of process and has not had an opportunity to review the complaints.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
