Career Education Corporation Reports Results For Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012

Career Education Corporation (NASDAQ: CECO) today reported total revenue of $354.7 million, and a net loss of $61.5 million, or -$0.93 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to total revenue of $438.3 million and net loss of $120.4 million, or -$1.64 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the full year 2012, total revenue of $1.49 billion, and net loss of $142.8 million, or -$2.15 per diluted share decreased from total revenue of $1.87 billion and net income of $18.6 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the full year 2011.

“While our financial results were unacceptable and unsustainable, 2012 was a year of renewal for Career Education,” said Steven H. Lesnik, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We made significant progress on the regulatory and accreditation fronts, reinforced our leadership team, reorganized and reduced the footprint of our institutions, adopted a long-term strategy and continued our investment in cutting-edge education technology.”

“Looking to 2013, we will sustain our sharp focus on student outcomes, continue to re-engineer and right-size the organization and leverage our investment in ground-breaking learning technology. The Company’s return to growth and profitability will be rooted in exceptional educational experiences and strong outcomes for our students.”

The Company believes it is useful to present non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude certain significant items, as a means to understand the performance of its core business. On a non-GAAP basis, the loss per diluted share from continuing operations was -$0.35 for the fourth quarter 2012 as compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.32 for the fourth quarter 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, on a non-GAAP basis, the loss per diluted share from continuing operations was -$0.44 as compared to earnings per diluted share of $2.14 for the year ended December 31, 2011. (See tables below and the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation attached to this press release for further details.)
