  • Investigations, legislative and regulatory developments, and general credit market conditions related to the student loan industry may result in fewer lenders and loan products and increased regulatory burdens and costs in the U.S.
  • We rely on one or more third parties for software and services necessary to administer Strayer University's and Capella University's participation in Title IV programs and failure of such a third party to provide compliant software and services, or by us in our use of the software, could cause Strayer University or Capella University to lose eligibility to participate in Title IV programs.
  • Our business could be harmed if Strayer University or Capella University experience a disruption in their ability to process student loans under the Federal Direct Loan Program.
  • Our business could be harmed if Congress makes changes to the availability of Title IV funds.

  • Adding new locations, programs, and services is dependent on our forecast of the demand for those locations, programs, and services and on regulatory approvals.

  • Our success depends in part on our ability to update and expand the content of existing academic programs and develop new programs in a cost-effective manner and on a timely basis.

  • Failure to maintain adequate processes to prevent and detect fraudulent activity related to student online enrollment or financial aid could adversely affect the Universities’ operations.
  • Strayer University and Capella University, with their online programs, operate in a highly competitive market with rapid technological changes, and they may not compete successfully.
  • Integrating SEI and Capella Education Company (“CEC”), and the recently acquired Torrens University and related assets in Australia and New Zealand (“ANZ”) may be more difficult, costly or time consuming than expected, and the combined company may not realize all of the anticipated benefits of the merger and acquisition.
  • The goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets recorded in connection with the Merger and the acquisition of ANZ could become impaired in the future.
  • The current COVID-19 pandemic and other possible future public health emergencies may adversely affect our business, our future results of operations, and our overall financial performance.
  • COVID-19 related regulatory and legislative changes may contain ambiguous provisions that could result in penalties in case of institutional noncompliance.
Management Discussion
  • As discussed above, we completed our acquisition of ANZ on November 3, 2020. Our results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 include the results of ANZ, but the results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 do not include the financial results of ANZ. Accordingly, the financial results of each period presented are not directly comparable.
  • In the second quarter of 2021, we generated $299.2 million in revenue compared to $255.8 million in 2020. Our income from operations was $26.7 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $46.4 million in 2020 primarily due to lower earnings in
  • the USHE segment and restructuring costs incurred in the second quarter of 2021, partially offset by the inclusion of ANZ's income from operations. Net income in the second quarter of 2021 was $20.0 million compared to $34.2 million for the same period in 2020. Diluted earnings per share was $0.83 compared to $1.55 for the same period in 2020. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, we generated $589.5 million in revenue, compared to $521.1 million for the same period in 2020. Our income from operations was $38.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to $90.4 million for the same period in 2020 primarily due to lower earnings in the USHE segment and restructuring costs incurred in the first six months of 2021, partially offset by the inclusion of ANZ's income from operations. Net income was $29.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to $69.4 million for the same period in 2020, and diluted earnings per share was $1.22 in the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to $3.15 for the same period in 2020.
