Corinthian Colleges Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

During the second quarter ended December 31, 2012, we received an investigative subpoena from the California Attorney General which requires the production of a broad range of documents and other items related to cohort default rates, placement and completion data, marketing, admissions, enrollment and financial aid processes, and other matters. The subpoena appears to be part of a broader investigation of the for-profit education industry in California. On January 11, 2013, we received a request from the Wisconsin Attorney General, requiring the production of information related to the Everest Milwaukee campus, including student outcomes, employers and externships, enrollment processes, financial aid, and marketing. Our Milwaukee campus was placed in discontinued operations as of December 31, 2012. We expect to provide reasonable cooperation in responding to both of these Attorneys General.


The following guidance is for continuing operations and excludes any one-time charges.
Time Period Revenue Diluted EPS Total New Student Growth Non-ATB   New Student Growth

Certain statements in this press release may be deemed to be forward-looking statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The company intends that all such statements be subject to the "safe-harbor" provisions of that Act. Such statements include, but are not limited to, those regarding our belief that reduced tuition for several programs and lower interest rates on third-party loans has made or will make our programs more affordable and attractive to prospective students; our belief that launching new diploma programs in ground schools and offering free GED preparation programs at some Everest campuses will help increase enrollment; our expectation that some portion of successful GED completers will enroll at Everest or other post-secondary institutions; our expected return to growth in Online Learning; overall enrollment growth or declines in future periods; our ability to manage student outcomes and improve the student value proposition; and the statements under the heading "Guidance" above. Many factors may cause the company's actual results to differ materially from those discussed in any such forward-looking statements or elsewhere, including: potential negative effects from the loss of ATB students; the uncertain outcome of ED's determination related to our financial responsibility composite score; ED's possible responses to a U.S. District Court ruling that invalidated its gainful employment rule, which could change the manner in which we conduct our business; the company's effectiveness in its regulatory and accreditation compliance efforts; the outcome of ongoing reviews and inquiries by accrediting, state and federal agencies, including state attorneys general; the outcome of pending litigation against the company; risks associated with variability in the expense and effectiveness of the company's advertising and promotional efforts; potential increased competition; changes in general macroeconomic and market conditions (including credit and labor market conditions, the unemployment rate, and the rates of change of each such item); and the other risks and uncertainties described in the company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The historical results achieved by the company are not necessarily indicative of its future prospects. The company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
