Trading Review: Looking at Unusual Volume for K12, Inc. (NYSE:LRN)

by Engelwood Staff August 9, 2016

Shares of K12, Inc. (NYSE:LRN) are experiencing unusual volume during today’s trading.  While the stock price moved along with the volume change, shares are touching $11.04 at the time of writing.  The day’s total volume of 365438 this morning is in contrast from the three-month daily average of 153.50K.  When we divide the current volume by the three-month average volume, we get a relative volume of 4.15.

The difference between yesterday’s closing price and today’s opening price was -6.86%.  

Why is this important?

Trading volume is a hugely important consideration for any investor.  By watching how many shares are trading hands and looking for any changes in that activity, trading opportunities can be spotted along with a deeper understanding of the reliability of other indicators on the stock.  A significant increase in trading volume means that more than double the average amount of stocks are moving.  When volume is decreased significantly, it may indicate there is an issue that shareholders should watch out for.  It’s also important to take into consideration how long the unusual volume sustains for.  If it’s only the one trading day, it can be dismissed as an anomaly.

Looking Back

K12, Inc. (NYSE:LRN)‘s market capital, the total dollar value of all of their outstanding shares, is 509.09m.  Including today’s unusual volume, K12, Inc.‘s stock is performing at 45.80% on the year.  For the week, the stock is performing -1.53%.  Over the past month the firm’s stock is -1.00%, 7.18% for the last quarter, 33.09% for the past six-months and -9.77% for the last year.

Current levels places the company’s stock about -20.59% from the 50-day high and 0.16% away from the 50-day low.

Robbins Arroyo LLP: K12, Inc. (LRN) Misled Shareholders According to a Recently Filed Class Action

July 22, 2016 07:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time

SAN DIEGO & HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Shareholder rights law firm Robbins Arroyo LLP announces
that a class action complaint was filed against K12, Inc. (NYSE: LRN) in
the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The
complaint is brought on behalf of all purchasers of K12 securities
between November 7, 2013 and October 27, 2015, for alleged violations of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by K12’s officers and directors. K12
Inc., a technology-based education company, offers proprietary
curriculum, software systems, and educational services to facilitate
individualized learning for students primarily in kindergarten through
12th grade.

“In the Matter of the Investigation of:
For-Profit Virtual Schools.”

K12 Accused of Lying About The Success Rate of Its Students

According to the complaint, throughout the class period, K12 filed
several press releases and submitted multiple filings with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission touting the company’s business
prospects. The company issued a press release on February 4, 2014,
stating, “Our Managed Schools are now…using many of the new educational
programs we put in place this year which we believe will improve
educational outcomes for all engaged families.” The company further
emphasized that improving academic outcomes is its number one priority
and that it would invest in new systems to drive further improvements
for its students. However, the complaint alleges that K12 officials
failed to disclose that: (1) K12 was publishing misleading
advertisements about students’ academic progress, parent satisfaction,
their graduates’ eligibility for University of California and California
State University admission, class sizes, the individualized and flexible
nature of K12’s instruction, hidden costs, and the quality of the
materials provided to students; (2) K12 submitted inflated student
attendance numbers to the California Department of Education in order to
collect additional funding; (3) as a result, K12 was open to potential
civil and criminal liability; and (4) the company would likely be forced
to end these practices, which would have a negative impact on K12’s
operations and prospects.

On October 27, 2015, Stanford’s Center for Research on Education
Outcomes published a study and a related press release about online
charter schools, including K12, stating, “Innovative new research
suggests that students of online charter schools had significantly
weaker academic performance in math and reading, compared with their
counterparts in conventional schools.” On the same day, K12 reported
disappointing first quarter 2016 financial results compared to the same
quarter in fiscal year 2015, including revenues of $221.2 million
compared to $236.7 million, Earnings Before Interest, Taxes,
Depreciation and Amortization of negative $3.9 million compared to $3.7
million, and an operating loss of $20.5 million compared to an operating
loss of $13.2 million. On October 27, 2015, K12 disclosed in its Form
10-Q that it received a subpoena from the Attorney General of the State
of California, Bureau of Children’s Justice in connection with an
investigation known as “In the Matter of the Investigation of:
For-Profit Virtual Schools.” On this news, K12 stock fell over 20% to
close at $9.71 per share on October 30, 2015.

K12 Earnings Call

This week CAVA’s management company K12 Inc. held its third quarter earnings call with executives, reporting revenue growth of 4 percent “year over year” and operating income (profit) of just about $19 million for the quarter.  On the conference call, recently-hired CEO Stuart Udell expressed his delight with being one of the newest members of the K12 executive team as well as his excitement about what he sees as K12’s potential to deliver for students.  It’s no surprise that Udell, whose pay and employment depends on improving K12’s stock performance and investor satisfaction, presented an extremely optimistic front as he speculated that K12’s fourth quarter will be even better.

This despite a rough start for the company’s current fiscal year – one that essentially began with a shareholder revolt that resulted in the voting down of K12’s executive compensation proposal, CAVA

teachers delivering a report card of straight F’s to K12’s leadership for its failure to invest in students and teachers, the removal of Nate Davis as the company’s CEO, and sharp criticism of the for-profit company following the release of a series of studies pointing to problems with virtual charter schools due to weak oversight and the industry’s misplaced priorities.

But, if you ask Stuart Udell, at K12 everything is awesome.  This is an interesting contrast to the doom and gloom the company sought to broadcast as early as last week in response to the recent articles published by the San Jose Mercury News, which raise very serious questions about how CAVA and K12 are using the public education dollars they receive – millions of dollars intended to provide instruction to our kids but instead funneled out of the state.  CAVA and K12 have yet to respond to the actual merits of the news story, instead opting to blame it all away on teachers who have stood up for our students by forming a union.  Hmmm.

Oh, and speaking of contradictions, did you know that one of K12’s newest ventures is in partnership with – wait for it – a labor union?!  That’s right.  Executives on this week’s conference call also touched on their excitement around K12’s Destinations Career Academy – a new technical education online high school in Wisconsin that offers a construction apprenticeship program in partnership with the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 139.  Imagine that – K12 seeking to deliver for students in partnership with organized labor.

We sincerely look forward to the day decision-makers at our school embrace a partnership with teachers and our union too – not only for the benefit of shareholders and the bottom line, but for the success of CAVA’s students.  Now, talk about awesome.

K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN) Reports Bad News, But Blames Contract Changes

0

The management of K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN) has attempted to explain why its headline result for F3Q2016 couldn’t match a similar quarter last year: changes in a major client account. Revenue in F3Q2016 as well as in the nine months to March 2016 fell compared to a similar period a year earlier because of the same reason.

The affected client account was that of Agora Cyber Charter School. K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN) said that contracted moved to Non-managed from Managed program, thus causing revenue disruption.

What was the report for 1Q?

K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN)’s F3Q2016 revenue of $221.3 million marked a pullback from $224.6 million in a similar quarter a year ago. Non-GAAP EBITDA of $36.7 million also fell from $45.2 million in the previous year.

Almost all of K12’s key financial metrics fell in the latest quarter compared to a year ago because operating income of $19.1 million was down from $27.4 million in 1Q2015. Net income attributable to common shareholders contracted to $14.3 million from $17 million and diluted EPS attributable to common shareholders shrunk to $0.37 from $0.45.

What about the nine months to end of March?

The narrative was largely the same. Revenue of $651.4 million in the first nine months of F2016 was down from $712.6 million in the first nine months of F2015. Non-GAAP EBITDA of $64 million pulled back from $87 million and operating income of $13.4 million sharply down from $34.7 million.

K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN) further reported that net income attributable to common shareholders of $10 million was down from $22.6 million in the initial nine months of F2015. The same story went for diluted EPS attributable to shareholders that came in at $0.26 relative to $0.60 in the initial nine months of F2015.

Performance in line with expectations

Despite the pullback in both the results of F3Q2016 and the first nine months of F2015, CEO, Stuart Udell, insisted that the company continues to achieve results according to its guidance for the year. Perhaps that is another way of saying that the transition of the Agora Cyber Charter School contract was expected and had been baked in the projections for the year.

What about the future?

For F4Q2016, K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN) is looking for revenue in the band of $205 to $215 million. Operating income for the quarter is expected to be between $5 million and $9 million.

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.

As of March 31, 2016, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $199.5 million, an increase of $3.6 million compared to the $195.9 million reported at June 30, 2015. This increase is largely the result of normal seasonal trends.

Capital expenditures for the nine months ended March 31, 2016 were $41.0 million, a decrease of $4.3 million from the prior year’s first nine months, and was comprised of:

  • $2.5 million for property and equipment,
  • $26.3 million for capitalized software development, and
  • $12.2 million for capitalized curriculum.

Capital leases financed additional purchases of $6.9 million during the nine months ended March 31, 2016, primarily for student computers.  This compares to capital leases financed during the nine months ended March 31, 2015 of $12.1 million.

Revenue

The following table sets forth the Company’s revenues — Managed Public School Programs (curriculum and services sold to managed public schools), Institutional (curriculum, technology and services provided to school districts, public schools and other educational institutions that the Company does not manage), and Private Pay Schools and Other (private schools for which the Company charges student tuition and makes direct consumer sales) – for the periods indicated.

Beginning in fiscal 2016, the Company has presented revenue from Non-managed Programs as part of the Institutional line of business, along with the Institutional Software and Services, which together constitute total Institutional revenue.  In the prior year these revenues were presented as part of the Public School Programs line of business, which included both Managed and Non-managed Public School Programs. We believe this revised presentation clarifies and better aligns the disclosure of Non-Managed Program revenues with the Company’s operational and sales structure.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA

EBITDA consists of net income plus net interest expense, plus income tax expense, minus income tax benefit, plus depreciation and amortization and non-controlling interest. Interest expense primarily consists of interest expense for capital leases. We use EBITDA in addition to income from operations and net income as a measure of operating performance. However, EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and when analyzing our operating performance, investors should use EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, net income as determined in accordance with GAAP. Not all companies use identical calculations for EBITDA, therefore our presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Furthermore, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for our management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as capital expenditures, tax payments, interest payments, or other working capital.

We believe EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because it is widely used to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as depreciation and amortization, which can vary depending upon accounting methods and the book value of assets, and to present a meaningful measure of corporate performance exclusive of our capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired. Our management uses EBITDA:

  • as an additional measurement of operating performance because it assists us in comparing our performance on a consistent basis; and
  • in presentations to the members of our Board of Directors to enable our Board to have the same measurement basis of operating performance as is used by management to compare our current operating results with corresponding prior periods and with the results of other companies in our industry.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA:
