Risks
  • The recent global coronavirus outbreak may continue to harm our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
  • The trading price of the shares of our common stock may fluctuate materially, and investors of our common stock could incur substantial losses.
  • Our company is highly dependent on information technology systems and their business management and customer-facing capabilities critical for the long-term competitive sustainability of the business. These capabilities include business planning and transaction information, product development and delivery, marketing and sales information and management, and system security.
  • The demand for digital and lower cost books could impact our sales volumes and pricing in an adverse way.
  • Adverse publicity could negatively impact our reputation, which could adversely affect our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • Our intellectual property rights may not be protected, which could adversely affect our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • A reduction in enrollment at colleges and universities could adversely affect the demand for our higher education products.
  • In our journal publishing business we have a trade concentration and credit risk related to subscription agents, and in our book business the industry has a concentration of customers in national, regional, and online bookstore chains. Changes in the financial position and liquidity of our subscription agents and customers, could adversely impact our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • A disruption or loss of data sources could limit our collection and use of certain kinds of information, which could adversely impact our communication with our customers.
  • If we are unable to retain key employees and other personnel, our consolidated financial condition or results of operations may be adversely affected.
  • Changes in pension costs and related funding requirements may impact our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • We may not realize the anticipated cost savings and benefits from, or our business may be disrupted by, our business transformation and restructuring efforts.
  • We may not realize the anticipated cost savings and processing efficiencies associated with the outsourcing of certain business processes.
  • We may be susceptible to information technology risks that may adversely impact our business, consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • Challenges and uncertainties associated with operating in developing markets has a higher risk due to political instability, economic volatility, crime, terrorism, corruption, social and ethnic unrest, and other factors, which may adversely impact our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • The competitive pressures we face in our business, as well as our ability to retain our business relationships with our authors and professional societies, could adversely affect our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • Changes in laws, tariffs, and regulations, including regulations related to open access, could adversely impact our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • Cyber risk and the failure to maintain the integrity of our operational or security systems or infrastructure, or those of third parties with which we do business, could have a material adverse effect on our business, consolidated financial condition, and results of operations.
  • Fluctuations in interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates could materially impact our consolidated financial condition and results of operations.
  • We may not be able to mitigate the impact of inflation and cost increases, which could have an adverse impact on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • Changes in tax laws, including regulations and other guidance in connection with the U.S. Federal tax legislation originally known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the “Tax Act”), could have a material impact on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
  • Changes in global economic conditions could impact our ability to borrow funds and meet our future financing needs.
Management Discussion
  • Revenue for the year ended April 30, 2020 increased $31.4 million, or 2%, as compared with the prior year. On a constant currency basis, revenue increased 3% mainly driven by the following factors:
  • These increases were partially offset by a decline of $44.8 million in the Academic & Professional Learning business.
  • Excluding the impact of acquisitions, revenues on a constant currency basis declined 1% as compared with the prior year.
