"Although we don't envision the market conditions drastically changing, we're encouraged by the progress we're making in the business transition. Educational leaders recognize the need to improve student achievement, and technology is one of the leading ways to get quick results without needing more teachers and classrooms," said Bob Bowen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Interest levels in MySciLearn are strong and the need for our products is high among K-12 schools. We're seeing a dramatic increase in customers on the new platform, with over half of our customer base converted to MySciLearn. Also, the number of active school sites increased 11% over last year to 3413 sites. As we complete our 90 day review process and look to the second half of the year, we will continue to focus on sales execution and aligning our cost structure."
