Thank you Mike, good morning and thanks for joining us on the call today. Before reviewing the results for the quarter, I just want to share how delighted I am that I came to K12. My entire career is focused on providing instructional services to kids who need the most help. I have always been a champion of school choice and educational options for students. Now, after almost 3 months on the job, I’m even further convinced that there is no better platform to do this at scale and to make a difference with kids than in K12. I’ve spent the last 75 days visiting schools, attending school board meetings, listening to customers and talking with employees to quickly gain a deep understanding of the Company’s operations, curriculum and talent. My takeaway is that the K12 team is more than just a leader in building create curriculum and technology; it’s a team of incredibly passionate and committed individuals including teachers, school administrators and support personnel who are on a mission. It’s those individuals that truly differentiate this organization and make us a true pioneer and leader in online and blended education.

Enrollment At Nation’s Largest For-Profit Charter Operator Still Growing Despite Lawsuits, Regulatory Problems

K12 Inc. is facing a litany of regulatory problems and a new shareholder lawsuit, but as long as new students are signing up, none of that matters to investors.

Molly Hensley-Clancy

BuzzFeed News Reporter

A K12 student does coursework in of the company’s virtual charter schools.

The problems plaguing K12 Inc., the country’s largest publicly traded virtual charter operator, are no secret. They’ve been hit with two shareholder lawsuits, subjected to state investigations, and weathered exposes in the New York Times and the Associated Press.

But in their quarterly earnings call today, K12 reported that enrollment has grown yet again, swelling to 125,000 students — an increase of more than 5% since March of last year. Their revenue, which topped $235 million, actually exceeded analysts’ estimates, as did their operating margins. Net income was $15.9 million.

Enrollment is what matters to the company and its shareholders: each student that signs up for K12’s online schools comes with public funding attached, and as long as enrollment grows, revenue likely will, too.

Though enrollment is growing, as many as 50% of K12’s students drop out within a year, according to Gary Miron, a researcher with the National Education Policy Center at the University of Colorado. Because funding is allocated on a yearly basis in most states, however, Miron says that doesn’t matter much to K12’s bottom line.

“It doesn’t really hurt them because if the student leaves, the money stays,” Miron said. “They can just enroll another student the next year.”

A representative for the company disputed Miron’s analysis, saying, “K12 is not paid for the students who are not there.”

In addition to high dropout rates, K12’s student outcomes are notoriously poor, with students performing worse than their counterparts in brick-and-mortar schools. As a result, just a quarter of their schools meet adequate yearly progress metrics. Just like for-profit giants University of Phoenix and Everest College, K12 attributes these outcomes to the higher numbers of poor and academically challenged students it enrolls, and the high turnover among its students.

After a 2011 article in the New York Times highlighted the company’s many problems with student performance, shareholders filed suit against K12, alleging that they had been misled about student outcomes and had boosted its enrollment and revenue by using “deceptive recruitment” practices. That lawsuit was eventually settled last year, although a portion of its claims were voluntarily dismissed. A second one is in the works, according to an announcement by law firm Levi & Korsinsky.

A K12 representative noted that the company has seen academic improvement “in some areas.”

Prominent hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson, of Kase Capital, has been one of K12’s biggest critics, announcing last year that the company was his biggest short position.

Though legislators and state education departments have started to go after K12 and its smaller counterparts, Miron said most attempts to close down or limit funding to underperforming virtual charter schools have been settled or dropped altogether.

On the company’s earnings call, executives assured investors that the latest attempt to scale back virtual schools, a Pennsylvania bill that targets online charter funding, would have minimal impact.

Why K12 Inc. Stock Fell 22% in October

The for-profit educator continues to struggle in 2015.

What: Shares of childhood educator K12 Inc(NYSE:LRN) were sent to the principal’s office last month, falling 22% according to data from S&P Capital IQ. As the chart below shows, the stock skidded late in the month following an unimpressive earnings report.

LRN data by YCharts

So what: The school-aged curriculum provider posted first quarter revenue of $221.2 million, down 6% from a year ago, but that drop was largely due to the Agora Cyber School’s shift from a managed curriculum to a non-managed curriculum. More importantly, K12 posted a loss of $0.34 per share for the summer months, which are typically loss-generating for the company, worse than an expected $0.30 shortfall. Another warning sign was that overall enrollment fell by about 7,000 in the quarter, or 5%.

As the for-profit college industry has crumbled, pressure on K12 stock has increased, and the stock now trades at an all-time low. What was once a high-growth company is on the decline as skepticism about for-profit education has spread quickly.

Now what: Revenue growth at K12 has flatlined, and even after lapping the Agora shift next year, analysts are only expecting a 4% increase in sales. The decline in K12 stock has made its valuation much more reasonable at a price-to-earnings around 15 times, but the company will need to show it can deliver profitable growth before shares move higher. Revenue guidance for the next quarter at $205 to $215 million is in line with expectations, but it remains unclear how management plans to return the company to growth. Earnings per share are expected to fall by more than half, in part due to the loss of Agora as a managed program, but that was because the school did not make adequate yearly progress according to No Child Left Behind.

As the government continues to crack down on underperforming for-profit schools, the potential for another such development remains. Until K12 can reassure investors that its schools are delivering positive results, the company is unlikely to find significant growth, and the stock will remain mired in the single digits.
