CAMPUS CLOSURES AND WORKFORCE REDUCTIONS
A key component to the Company’s long-term strategy is to invest in a smaller number of institutions that have the strongest likelihood of delivering strong student outcomes, operational efficiency and strength in their market. As a result, the decision was made to close twenty-three campuses. These campuses are expected to contribute approximately $124.3 million of revenue and approximately $62.0 million of operating loss for the year ending December 31, 2012. The campuses will remain open to offer current students the ability to complete their course of study. The majority of these campuses are expected to cease operations no later than the first quarter of 2014. Along with these closures, the Company made the decision to eliminate approximately 900 positions across the organization as it reorganizes its campus and corporate functions to better align with the current student population and common operating structures across our ground campuses, most notably within our Career Schools. The position eliminations are expected to be completed by January 2013, with annual savings estimated at $45-$55 million. The fourth quarter operating results will include a pretax severance charge of approximately $7.0 million as a result of this decision.
