Review of Significant Business Activities

Ron Packard, Chief Executive Officer of K12 Inc., stated, "This fiscal year was a transformational one for K12. We are pleased with the many accomplishments across our business. As a company, we achieved revenue growth of over 35 percent with most of it being organic. We made three acquisitions during the year that, combined, enhance our online public school offering and scale our Institutional Business and Private School distribution channels. In aggregate, acquisitions contributed 10.4 percent to revenue growth in fiscal year 2011. We completed several strategic initiatives this year that contributed 1.8 percent to our growth. Our virtual public school business is strong and growing. The increasing acceptance of online learning has enabled us to open schools in two new states for Fall 2011 and raise or eliminate several enrollment caps. We also now have a meaningful presence in China and have had an outstanding business development year. School is already open for the 2011/2012 school year and we are delighted to serve so many more children."

Significant accomplishments of Fiscal Year 2011:

  • Total average enrollment increased by over 45% to 98,890, including acquisitions;
  • Strategic acquisitions of KC Distance Learning (KCDL), American Education Corporation (AEC) and International School of Berne complement and expand our virtual charter school business, institutional sales and private school offering;
  • Our investment in Web International Education positions us for a significant growth opportunity in China; and
  • Our launch of new initiatives, including Capital Education, Middlebury Interactive Languages (MIL), SF Flex School and brick and mortar classroom pilot programs, positions K12 in several complementary markets;
  • We materially strengthened our financial position with the completion of a private placement of 4 million shares with Technology Crossover Ventures providing proceeds of approximately $125 million; and
  • We have continued our investment in curriculum and learning systems, now a cumulative $240 million.

Mr. Packard concluded, "Looking ahead to Fiscal 2012, we are encouraged by the robust enrollment season for the 2011 / 2012 school year. We have seen acceleration in the organic enrollment growth rate in virtual schools and a decrease in customer acquisition costs. We are very pleased to open schools in two new states, Louisiana and Tennessee and to launch the George Washington University Online High School."

Financial Results for the Fiscal Year ended June 30, 2011

  • Revenues for FY 2011 were $522.4 million, an increase of 35.9 percent. This increase was primarily due to 23.7 percent organic revenue growth. In addition, acquisitions contributed 10.4 percent to revenue growth and new initiatives contributed 1.8 percent to revenue growth. Total average enrollments including acquisitions increased 45.7% to 98,890 for the year ended June 30, 2011 from 67,878 for the same period in the prior year.
  • Instructional costs and services expenses for FY 2011 were $307.1 million, an increase of $85.1 million or 38.3 percent. This increase was primarily attributable to a $63.9 million increase in expenses to operate and manage schools including the programs acquired with KCDL and the MIL summer programs. In addition, costs to supply curriculum, books, educational materials and computers to students increased $10.6 million, and amortization of curriculum and online learning systems also increased $10.6 million. Included in the $85.1 million increase in instructional costs and services expenses were start-up and launch expenses of $7.5 million for several new initiatives.
  • Selling, administrative, and other operating expenses for FY 2011 were $174.8 million, an increase of $57.4 million or 48.9 percent. This increase is primarily attributable to increases in: strategic marketing including brand awareness and student recruitment; personnel costs, primarily those acquired with KCDL and AEC; depreciation and amortization including the effects of purchase accounting; and professional services. Transaction and integration expenses, financial systems and process improvement costs; and executive stock compensation expenses associated with a new contract totaled $9.4 million. Startup expenses of $6.6 million for several new initiatives were also included.
  • Product development expenses for FY 2011 were $16.3 million, an increase of $6.7 million or 70.7 percent. Included in the $6.7 million increase in product development expenses are expenses of $1.8 million related to new initiatives and ERP system implementation expenses of $1.0 million.
  • EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure (see reconciliation below), for FY 2011 was $67.1 million, an increase of 9.6 percent. EBITDA has been impacted by $12.0 million of cumulative transaction expenses, merger integration costs, financial systems and process improvement costs, effects of purchase accounting, and by losses from new initiatives totaling $7.9 million.
  • Operating income was $24.2 million for FY 2011, a decrease of 31.8 percent, partially attributable to the factors above and an increase of $17.2 million in depreciation and amortization expense primarily due to investments in curriculum and systems to support growth and due to the effects of purchase accounting.
  • Income tax expense was $11.3 million for FY 2011, representing an effective tax rate of 49.3 percent. Income tax expense for the prior year was $13.2 million, an effective tax rate of 38.8 percent. The increase in the tax rate is primarily attributable to certain non-deductible transaction expenses in the current period and R&D tax credits that reduced the effective tax rate in the prior year.
  • Net income to common and Series A shareholders was $12.8 million for FY 2011, a decrease of 40.5 percent due to the factors described above.
  • Diluted net income attributable to common stockholders per share was $0.37 as compared to $0.71 in the prior period, a decrease of 47.9 percent, due to the factors described above. Diluted net income per share reflects a pro rata allocation of net income to Series A Special Stock.

Financial Results for the Three Months ended June 30, 2011 (Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2011)

  • Revenues for the fourth quarter of FY 2011 were $128.3 million, an increase of 45.2 percent. This increase was primarily due to 26.9 percent organic revenue growth. In addition, acquisitions contributed 16.4 percent to revenue growth and new initiatives contributed 1.9 percent to revenue growth.
  • Instructional costs and services expenses for the fourth quarter of FY 2011 were $78.1 million, an increase of $22.2 million or 39.8 percent. This increase was primarily attributable to an $18.6 million increase in expenses to operate and manage schools including the programs acquired with KCDL. Included in the $22.2 million increase in instructional costs and services expenses are startup and launch expenses for new initiatives of $0.9 million.
  • Selling, administrative, and other operating expenses for the fourth quarter of FY 2011 were $52.3 million, an increase of $20.0 million or 61.8 percent. This increase is primarily attributable to increases in: personnel costs, primarily those acquired with KCDL and AEC; professional services; depreciation and amortization including the effects of purchase accounting; and strategic marketing including brand awareness and student recruitment. Transaction and integration expenses, ERP implementation and process improvement costs totaled $1.4 million. Start up expenses of $2.3 million for several new initiatives were also included.
  • Product development expenses for the fourth quarter of FY 2011 were $4.0 million, an increase of $2.0 million over the same period in the prior year. The increase is primarily due to internal software development projects and initiatives to support the Aventa curriculum acquired with KCDL. Included in the $2.0 million increase in product development expenses are expenses of $0.5 million related to new initiatives and ERP system implementation expenses of $0.9 million.
  • EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure (see reconciliation below), for the fourth quarter of FY 2011 was $6.3 million, an increase of 13.7 percent. EBITDA has been impacted by $2.4 million of financial systems and process improvement costs, transaction and integration expenses. In addition, losses from new initiatives totaled $2.1 million during the period described above.
  • Operating loss was ($6.2) million for the fourth quarter of FY 2011 as compared to an operating loss of ($1.9) million for the same period in the prior year. Depreciation and amortization were $12.5 million, an increase of $5.1 million or 68.6 percent primarily due investments in curriculum and systems to support growth and the effects of transaction related purchase accounting. Results give effect to transaction and merger integration expenses of $2.4 million and operating losses generated by new initiatives of $2.1 million.
  • Income tax benefit was $3.0 million for the fourth quarter of FY 2011, representing an effective tax rate of 46.2 percent. Income tax benefit for the fourth quarter of FY 2010 was $0.4 million, an effective tax rate of 19.7 percent. The increase in the tax rate is primarily due to non-deductible transaction expenses in the current period and tax credits that reduced the effective tax rate in the same period in the prior year.
  • Net loss to common and Series A shareholders was ($2.8) million as compared to a net loss of ($1.3) million in the prior year due to the factors mentioned above.
  • Diluted net loss attributable to common stockholders per share was ($0.08) for the fourth quarter of FY 2011 as compared to ($0.04) in the same period in the prior year due to the factors described above. Diluted net income per share reflects a pro rata allocation of net income to Series A Special Stock.

Cash, Capital Expenditures and Capital Leases

  • As of June 30, 2011, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $193.1 million, reflecting an increase of $111.3 million from June 30, 2010.
  • Capital expenditures for the FY 2011 was $47.6 million and was comprised of:
    • $19.6 million for property and equipment, including enterprise software, expanded facilities, and build-out of our second data center

    • $9.9 million for capitalized software development.
  • Capital leases financed additional purchases of $15.6 million for the full year FY 2011, primarily for computers and software for students and $1.9 million related to enterprise software.

Fiscal Year 2012 Outlook

Consistent with prior practice, Management will provide its outlook for fiscal year 2012 (FY 2012) when it announces first quarter 2012 results. Since this release is later than in previous years, we anticipate the organic growth rate for the 2011 / 2012 school year will be higher than it was last year and we believe customer acquisition costs will decline on a per customer basis. Additionally, certain costs incurred in FY 2011, particularly ERP implementation expenses, continued into the first quarter of FY 2012. We will provide the exact enrollment numbers as well as the 2012 guidance in our November call.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA

EBITDA consists of net income (loss), plus net interest expense, plus income tax expense, minus income tax benefit, plus depreciation and amortization and noncontrolling interest charges. Interest expense primarily consists of interest expense for capital leases, long-term and short-term borrowings. 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 (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, 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;
  • 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; and,
  • on an adjusted basis in determining compliance with the terms of our credit agreement.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA.
