Stocks in this article: APOL

Apollo Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: APOL) today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended May 31, 2013, with third quarter revenue of $946.8 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.71 per share, or $1.05 per share excluding special items.

“This is a time of extraordinary change in higher education. At Apollo Group we are creating a more nimble organization and reengineering our learning solutions to better support our student’s needs and meet the demands of employers. We are focused on making the necessary changes to deliver an improved set of educational offerings,” said Apollo Group Chief Executive Officer Greg Cappelli. “As education evolves, the transfer of knowledge and the acquisition of skills for working adults will be delivered in new and different ways. We are working directly with employers to define the skills students must bring to the workplace to more effectively compete in a global economy. The repositioning of higher education—also reflected in Apollo Group’s mission to create a more educated global workforce—has perhaps never been more important.”
