Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Our financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 (“current quarter”) reflected improvements in revenue and operating income as compared to the prior year quarter. Additionally, total student enrollments improved as compared to the prior year
  • quarter end. The financial results include the Trident acquisition commencing on the March 2, 2020 date of acquisition and therefore the quarter ended March 31, 2020 reflects one month of financial results for Trident as compared to a full quarter of results for Trident for the current quarter. During the current quarter we continued to make targeted investments within our student support processes as well as other initiatives.
  • Total student enrollments increased 9.7% as of March 31, 2021 as compared to March 31, 2020, with CTU increasing by 12.8% and AIU increasing by 5.0%. We believe our investments in technology and student-serving functions have positively contributed to student experiences and student learning. Both CTU and AIU have continued to increase their student-serving staff and leverage data analytics and technology to enhance the effectiveness of their services to students. Additionally, CTU’s academic calendar redesign positively impacted the total student enrollments as of March 31, 2021 due to a session start date on March 30th this year as compared to a session start date that was in April in the prior year.
