K12 Inc. Reports Financial Guidance for Full Year and First Quarter of Fiscal 2016


By GlobeNewswire,  October 14, 2015, 07:15:00 AM EDT

HERNDON, Va., Oct. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN), a technology-based education company and leading provider of proprietary curriculum and online school programs for students in pre-K through high school, today announced guidance for the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2016 (“FY 2016″) and the first fiscal quarter of 2016.

Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook

  • Revenues of $830 million to $865 million, compared to $948.3 million for the full fiscal year of 2015. The year over year decline is largely due to the Agora Cyber School shifting from a managed to non-managed program. The net impact of this transition is approximately $110 million for the year.
  • Operating income of $17 million to $23 million, compared to $18.4 million for the full fiscal year of 2015.
  • Capital expenditures, defined as curriculum development, software development, purchases of property and equipment and capitalized leases for student computers, of $70 million to $80 million, compared to $76.5 million for the full fiscal year of 2015.
  • Effective income tax rate of 39% to 41%.

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook

  • Revenues of $218 million to $222 million, compared to $236.7 million in the first quarter of FY 2015. The year over year decline is largely due to the Agora Cyber School shifting from a managed to non-managed program. The net impact of this transition for the first quarter is approximately $25 million.
  • Operating loss of $20 million to $22 million, compared to an operating loss of $13.2 million in the first quarter of FY 2015. Operating losses in the first quarter relate to the seasonality of SG&A costs at the beginning of every school year, which includes enrollment center and promotional expenses.
  • Capital expenditures, defined as curriculum development, software development, purchases of property and equipment and capitalized leases for student computers, of $15 million to $17 million, compared to $22.9 million in the first quarter of FY 2015.

The following table provides detail on student enrollments in Public School Programs as of the October count date. Public School Programs include both virtual and blended schools where a district or independent board has contracted with K12 to provide a full-time program of educational products and services. Enrollments are classified into Managed Programs and Non-managed Programs. Managed Programs include schools where K12 provides substantially all of the management, technology and academic support services in addition to curriculum, learning systems and instructional services. Non-managed Programs include schools where K12 provides curriculum and technology, and the school can also contract for instruction or other educational services. Non-managed programs, however, do not offer primary administrative oversight.

         
  Three Months Ended September 30, 2015 / 2014
   2015   2014  Change Change %
         
Managed Public School Programs (1,2,3)  104,429  118,609  (14,180) -12.0%
Non-managed Public School Programs (1,3)  27,754  20,630  7,124 34.5%

(1) If a school changes from a Managed to a Non-managed program, the corresponding enrollment classification would change in the period in which the contract arrangement changed.
(2) Public School Programs include enrollments for which K12 receives no public funding or revenue.
(3) Public School Program enrollments are equal to the official count date number, which is the first Wednesday of October in a year, or October 7, 2015 for Q1 FY16 and October 1, 2014 for Q1 FY15.

K12 Inc., a company of educators, is leading the transformation to individualized learning as the nation’s foremost provider of technology-powered proprietary online solutions for students in pre-kindergarten through high school.

HERNDON, Va., Sept. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — K12 Inc., the nation’s leading provider of K-12 online school programs released a new report on Nevada Virtual Academy’s innovative college and career readiness programs and the school’s collaboration with University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).

The full report can be found here.

Nevada Virtual Academy is a statewide online public charter school serving over 2,000 students in kindergarten through high school.

Nevada Virtual Academy is driving innovation in online learning and continuing to focus on post-secondary preparedness,” said Caroline McIntosh, Head of School at Nevada Virtual Academy. “We are proud to be at the forefront of this important effort in education.”

The report outlines new ways that Nevada Virtual Academy is offering families a personalized learning experience through innovative Learning Pathways which are designed to meet each learner’s individual needs and enhance his or her capabilities.

Nevada Virtual Academy offers high school students five academic pathways to college and career readiness. Students on the Advanced Dual Credit pathway can take up to 24 credits at any one of the Nevada System of Higher Education institutions, including UNLV and University of Nevada-Reno, which will transfer to a degree program of their choice. Students on the Jump Start College Pathway, a partnership with Western Nevada College, have the opportunity to earn an Associate of Arts degree in conjunction with a high school diploma.  

The report also highlights how Nevada Virtual Academy is providing students increased exposure to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education. The school offers unique STEM programs through online and blended (face-to-face) learning approaches, including clubs and activities offered through its collaboration with UNLV. Data reported from the U.S. Bureau of Labor reports that STEM employment is projected to grow to more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022.

In the 2014-15 school year, more than 100 students graduated from NVVA. Many graduates went on to attend prestigious colleges and universities including Brigham Young University, Cornell University, University of California, and UNLV.

“From our newly established learning pathways for personalized learning to our strong ties with UNLV and West Nevada College providing dual-credit programs and STEM education, Nevada Virtual Academy is offering high quality educational opportunities to students across the state,” said Ms. McIntosh.

This report is the latest in a series of white papers on academics and instruction published by K12 Inc.  An archive of the publications, along with K12’s annual academic report, can be found here.
