Learning Tree International Announces First Quarter FY 2013 Results

Learning Tree International (NASDAQ: LTRE) announced today its revenues and results of operations for its first quarter of fiscal year 2013, which ended December 28, 2012.

In its first quarter of fiscal year 2013, Learning Tree reported revenues of $33.3 million, loss from operations of $1.4 million, and net loss of $1.4 million or $0.11 per share. These results compare with revenues of $35.0 million, income from operations of $2.8 million and net income of $1.8 million, or $0.14 per share in its first quarter of fiscal year 2012.

“We continue to make progress on re-focusing our company toward long term growth and profitability,” said Learning Tree President Max Shevitz. “Some of these efforts result in one-time costs such as the closing of our El Segundo, CA office that resulted in a restructuring charge of $1.4 million in our first quarter. Also in our first quarter, we incurred two other unusual costs: expenditures of $0.8 million by the Special Committee of our Board of Directors to evaluate two proposals and other expressions of interest to acquire the company; and additional direct costs of $0.4 million as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Despite these costs and the adverse first quarter revenue impacts of both Hurricane Sandy and the uncertainty surrounding federal spending, we remain optimistic that the initiatives we have taken in course quality, sales, and marketing, have the potential to improve future revenues and profitability.”


An investor conference call to discuss first quarter fiscal year 2013 results is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. (EST) February 7, 2013. Interested parties may access the conference call via live webcast at: The webcast will also be available for replay at:
