Management Discussion
  • Total revenue and other revenue. Total revenue and other revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, was $62.2 million and $102.2 million, respectively, a decrease of $40.0 million, or 39.1%. For the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, University Partners segment revenue was $55.2 million and $96.0 million, respectively, representing a decrease of 42.5%, and the Zovio Growth segment revenue was $7.0 million and $6.2 million, respectively, representing an increase of 14.0%.
  • The decrease in revenue in the University Partners segment of $40.8 million between periods was primarily due to the change in business model in December 2020, and the related decrease in university-related revenue as compared to the prior year. This decrease was also due to a decrease in average weekly enrollment for the three month period ended September 30, 2021, as compared to the three month period ended September 30, 2020. Partially offsetting the decrease in the University Partners segment was the new service revenue from the Services Agreement entered into in December 2020, as well as other revenue generated from the Transition Services Agreement of approximately $2.4 million.
  • The increase in revenue in the Zovio Growth segment between periods was primarily due to the growth in new customer contracts within the related subsidiaries, Fullstack Academy and TutorMe.com.
