Apollo Group, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Apollo Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: APOL) today reported financial results for the three and six months ended February 28, 2013, with second quarter revenue of $834.4 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.12 per share, or $0.34 per share excluding special items.

“Higher education is rapidly evolving as workforce demands and technological innovations drive change in our global economy,” said Apollo Group Chief Executive Officer Greg Cappelli. “We are further positioning our organization and brand with our continued commitment to help students acquire real workplace skills, achieve their academic goals, and – through the power of education – realize their career aspirations.”

Second Quarter 2013 Results of Operations
  • Net revenue for the second quarter 2013 was $834.4 million, compared to $962.7 million in the second quarter 2012.
  • University of Phoenix Degreed Enrollment was 300,800, a 15.5% decrease from the prior year second quarter, and New Degreed Enrollment was 38,900, down 20.1% from second quarter 2012.
  • Operating income was $29.8 million, compared to $103.7 million from the prior year second quarter.
  • Income from continuing operations attributable to Apollo Group was $13.5 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to $62.2 million, or $0.49 per share in the second quarter 2012.

Results for the second quarter 2013 included restructuring and other charges of $44.1 million attributable to optimization efforts and $6.4 million of credits associated with the favorable resolution of certain legal matters. (See the reconciliation of GAAP financial information to non-GAAP financial information in the tables section of this press release for second quarter 2013 and 2012 special items).

Excluding the special items noted above, income from continuing operations for the second quarter 2013 was $38.0 million, or $0.34 per share, compared to $72.2 million, or $0.57 per share, for the second quarter 2012. The decrease in income from continuing operations was attributable to lower enrollment and an increase in marketing costs primarily due to higher advertising expense, which was partially offset by a reduction in certain costs associated with the Company’s restructuring activities and lower bad debt expense.
