K12 Inc. Reports Full Year Fiscal 2020 with Revenues of $1.04 Billion

Results Exceed Company’s Guidance for Revenue and Adjusted Operating Income

HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN), one of the nation’s leading tech-enabled education companies, today announced its results for the fourth fiscal quarter and full fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.


Financial Highlights for the Full Fiscal Year 2020 Compared to Full Fiscal Year 2019

  • Revenues of $1,040.8 million, compared to $1,015.8 million driven by increased enrollments and the acquisition of Galvanize Inc. in January 2020. Excluding the impacts from the acquisition of Galvanize, revenues would have been $1,029.8 million.
  • Income from operations of $32.5 million, compared to $45.5 million. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, income from operations would have been $50.5 million due to increased revenue and cost efficiencies.
  • Net income of $24.5 million, compared to $37.2 million. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, net income would have been $38.3 million.
  • Diluted net income per share of $0.60, compared to $0.91. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, diluted net income per share would have been $0.94.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash of $213.3 million, compared to $284.6 million. The change in cash is due to the cash used for the acquisition of Galvanize, partially offset by a draw down from a revolving credit facility.
  • Adjusted operating income of $56.1 million, compared to $62.2 million. Excluding the impacts from the acquisition of Galvanize, adjusted operating income would have been $74.1 million. (1)
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $128.2 million, compared to $133.6 million. Excluding the impacts from the acquisition of Galvanize, adjusted EBITDA would have been $142.0 million. (1)

Financial Highlights for the Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Compared to Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2019

  • Revenues of $268.9 million, compared to revenues of $256.3 million due to increased enrollments, the Galvanize acquisition, and revenue recognized on the resolution of claims related to prior period services. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, revenues would have been $261.2 million.
  • Income from operations of $7.0 million, compared to $2.7 million driven by the increased revenue and lower costs related to COVID-19 partially offset by Galvanize costs. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, income from operations would have been $17.0 million
  • Net income of $4.9 million, compared to $3.3 million. The increase was driven by improved income from operations somewhat offset by increased interest expense. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, net income would have been $12.7 million.
  • Diluted net income per share of $0.12, compared to $0.08 per share. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, diluted net income per share would have been $0.31.
  • Adjusted operating income of $12.9 million, compared to $7.2 million. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, adjusted operating income would have been $22.8 million. (1)
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $32.2 million, compared to $25.4 million. Excluding the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize, adjusted EBITDA would have been $39.3 million. (1)

(1)

To supplement our financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we also present non-GAAP financial measures including adjusted operating income and adjusted EBITDA. Management believes that these additional metrics provide useful information to our investors as an indicator of performance because they exclude stock-based compensation expense. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is provided below.

CEO Commentary

“While the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the dreams and goals of many students, the academic experience for students in K12-powered programs has continued on schedule. The schools we support did not experience disruption, and we are thankful to have graduated more than 8,000 students this year,” said K12 CEO and Chairman Nate Davis. “As we approach the new school year, we’re preparing for increased student enrollments by hiring more teachers and expanding our learning platform. Managed public school enrollments are already 150 thousand, as of August 7th, and we are entering what has historically been the busiest part of our enrollment season. We are therefore positioned to deliver double-digit growth in both revenue and adjusted operating income in the coming year. This is only an early estimate and not formal guidance.”

Cash Flow and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash of $213.3 million, a decrease of $71.3 million compared to $284.6 million reported at June 30, 2019. The decrease in cash year-over-year is the result of several items, the largest of which being K12’s $165 million, plus working capital, cash acquisition of Galvanize in January 2020. In the third quarter of fiscal 2020, K12 borrowed $100.0 million from its revolving credit facility as a pre-emptive measure against potential capital market disruptions, which remains outstanding as of June 30, 2020.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the year ended June 30, 2020 were $45.0 million, a decrease of $3.4 million from the prior full fiscal year, and comprised

  • $1.7 million on property and equipment,
  • $24.0 million on capitalized software development, and
  • $19.3 million on capitalized curriculum development.

  • Adjusted operating income (loss) is defined as income (loss) from operations as adjusted for stock-based compensation.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from operations as adjusted for stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization.
  • Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating income (loss) exclude stock-based compensation, which consists of expenses for stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, and performance stock units.

Management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors relating to our financial performance. These measures remove stock-based compensation, which is a non-cash charge that varies based on market volatility and the terms and conditions of the awards. Adjusted EBITDA also removes depreciation and amortization, which can vary depending upon accounting methods and the book value of assets. Adjusted EBITDA provides a measure of corporate performance exclusive of capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.

We also have adjusted revenues, income from operations, net income and diluted net income per share to exclude the impact from the acquisition of Galvanize. We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors to allow comparisons against our historical results which did not include the Galvanize business prior to January 2020.

Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures:

  • as additional measures of operating performance because they assist us in comparing our performance on a consistent basis; and
  • in presentations to the members of our Board of Directors to enable our Board to review the same measures used by management to compare our current operating results with corresponding prior periods.

Other companies may define these non-GAAP financial measures differently and, as a result, our use of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be directly comparable to similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Although we use these non-GAAP financial measures to assess the performance of our business, the use of non-GAAP financial measures is limited as they include and/or do not include certain items not included and/or included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, revenues, income or loss from operations, net income or loss, and net income or loss per share or other related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
