Montag, 09.01.2017 22:10



PHOENIX --(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Apollo Education Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: APOL) (“Apollo” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the three months ended November 30, 2016, with first quarter revenue of $484.5 million and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.04, or $0.14 excluding special items.

“We continue to make steady progress on our transformational plan at University of Phoenix with improvement in both student persistence and enrollment,” said Greg Cappelli, Chief Executive Officer of Apollo Education Group. “This quarter, we also made additional headway in adjusting the organization’s cost base and continued to experience growth at Apollo Global. As we execute on our long-term strategic plan, we are committed to achieving successful student outcomes and ensuring we remain a focused and trusted provider of higher education for working adults.”

First Quarter 2017 Results of Operations

Apollo Education Group reported net revenue for the first quarter 2017 of $484.5 million, compared to $586.0 million for the first quarter 2016. First quarter 2017 University of Phoenix New Degreed Enrollment was 20,200 and Degreed Enrollment was 135,900, compared to New Degreed Enrollment of 24,500 and Degreed Enrollment of 176,900 for the prior year first quarter. Operating income for the first quarter 2017 was $8.4 million, compared to an operating loss of $45.2 million for the first quarter 2016. Income from continuing operations attributable to Apollo Education Group for the first quarter 2017 was $4.1 million, or $0.04 per share, compared to a loss of $57.5 million, or $0.53 per share, for the prior year first quarter.

Excluding special items, income from continuing operations attributable to Apollo Education Group for the first quarter 2017 was $15.3 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to $33.1 million, or $0.31 per share, for the first quarter 2016.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of November 30, 2016, the Company’s unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities (including current and noncurrent) totaled $641.6 million, compared to $680.7 million as of August 31, 2016. The decrease was primarily attributable to $32.4 million of payments on borrowings and $20.9 million of capital expenditures, which was partially offset by $16.5 million of cash provided by operations.

Total debt outstanding (including short-term borrowings and the current portion of long-term debt) was $56.8 million as of November 30, 2016.

Due to the pending merger transaction announced February 8, 2016, the Company is not providing an updated financial outlook at this time.

(1) Represents students enrolled in a degree program who attended a credit bearing course during the quarter and had not graduated as of the end of the quarter; students who previously graduated from one degree program and started a new degree program in the quarter (e.g., a graduate of an associate’s degree program returns for a bachelor’s degree); and students participating in certain certificate programs of at least 18 credits with some course applicability into a related degree program.

(2) As described in Footnote 1, Degreed Enrollment includes students who attended a credit bearing course during the quarter and had not graduated as of the end of the quarter. The proportion of students included in Degreed Enrollment who have completed their academic work but not yet formally graduated (“academically complete students”) increased beginning in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016 compared to the prior year periods due to changes in the manner in which graduation applications are processed. We estimate that the number of academically complete students reflected in this increase was approximately 2,000 - 3,000 for both the third and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2016, and 500 - 1,500 for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017.

(3) Represents new students and students who have been out of attendance for more than 12 months who enroll in a degree program and start a credit bearing course in the quarter; students who have previously graduated from a degree program and start a new degree program in the quarter; and students who commence participation in certain certificate programs of at least 18 credits with some course applicability into a related degree program.

(4) Represents the average of quarterly Degreed Enrollment from the beginning to the end of the respective periods.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures are intended to supplement, but not substitute for, the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Management uses, and chooses to disclose to investors, these non-GAAP financial measures because: (i) such measures provide an additional analytical tool to clarify the Company’s results from operations and help to identify underlying trends in its results of operations; (ii) as to the non-GAAP earnings measures, such measures help compare the Company’s performance on a consistent basis across time periods; and (iii) these non-GAAP measures are employed by the Company’s management in its own evaluation of performance and are utilized in financial and operational decision-making processes, such as budgeting and forecasting. Exclusion of items in the non-GAAP presentation should not be construed as an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Other companies, including other companies in the education industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure across companies.

“Adjusted EBITDA” is earnings from continuing operations before interest expense and interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and special items. It is intended to provide an indicator of our operating performance across time periods.
