In its fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, Learning Tree reported revenues of $32.1 million, loss from operations of $4.1 million, and net loss of $4.8 million or $0.37 per share.

For the full fiscal year 2012, Learning Tree reported revenues of $129.0 million, loss from operations of $6.9 million, and net loss of $11.9 million or $0.89 per share.
