Education Management Corporation Corrects Senator Harkin's Report Concerning Department Of Defense Tuition Assistance Data









PITTSBURGH, Feb. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Education Management Corporation (NASDAQ: EDMC), one of the largest providers of post-secondary education in North America, today responded to a report issued yesterday by the Senate HELP Committee entitled "Department of Defense Data Reveals For-Profit Colleges Are Taking in The Bulk Of Military Education Benefits," Tony Guida, EDMC's Senior Vice President of External Affairs, released the following statement:

"We were surprised to see Education Management Corporation (EDMC) mentioned in Senator Harkin's report on military education benefits.  EDMC is not a major recipient of Department of Defense Tuition Assistance (TA) benefits.  In fact, Department of Defense TA benefits represented less than 0.1% of net revenues recognized by EDMC in fiscal 2011.  Sen. Harkin's report also included a quote from a document provided voluntarily by EDMC to the HELP Committee that suggests that EDMC targets military spouses for their entitlements.  As EDMC advised the HELP Committee staff last May, that document was written by a consultant hoping to work with EDMC that EDMC did not retain."
