Michael Mathews, Chairman & CEO of Aspen Group, commented, “Fiscal year 2020 finished on a strong note delivering positive EBITDA in the fourth quarter on record revenue of $14.1 million and a reduction in operating loss of 75% compared to the prior year period. For the full year, revenue grew 44% and gross margin improved by 800 basis points due to a year-over-year decline in marketing expense as a percentage of revenue from 27% to 19%. Gross profit increased by $11.5 million, or 67% year-over-year, which means that 77% of our $15 million 2020 revenue increase dropped to the gross profit line. Gross profit is growing at a faster rate than revenue due to increased contribution from higher margin degrees, namely our pre-licensure BSN and MSN-Family Nurse Practitioner degree programs, and our increased marketing efficiency, as evidenced by our 10X+ Marketing Efficiency Ratio at both universities. The $5.2 million year-over-year increase of recurring G&A expense on revenue growth of $15 million meets our stated goal of growing annual G&A expense at 50% of our revenue growth. As a result, we narrowed our operating loss significantly and reduced net loss by $3.6 million for the full year, demonstrating the scale in our business with higher profit revenue streams and controlled operating expense growth. All these things combined demonstrate the Company is on a trajectory to achieve sustainable profitability.”

1Bookings are defined by multiplying LTV by new student enrollments for each operating unit.
2Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) is defined by dividing total bookings by total enrollments for each operating unit.

Revenues increased 38% to $14.1 million for the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2020 as compared to $10.2 million in Q4 2019. USU accounted for 29% and AU’s Pre-Licensure BSN program accounted for 17% of overall Company revenues.

During the company's standard year end revenue testing procedures we determined that our earned revenue report at Aspen University inadvertently wasn't reporting credits issued to withdrawn students for certain de minimus technology fees. Note that all invoices and credits issued to students were correct and their student ledger accounts are accurate, so this earned revenue reporting error has no effect on our student body. For fiscal year 2020, this incorrect earned fee calculation amounted to $480,303. Consequently, revenue for the fourth fiscal quarter is $14.1 million, rather than the pre-announced revenue estimate of $14.5 million.

Gross profit increased by 47% to $8.4 million or 59% gross margin for Q4 2020 versus $5.7 million or 56% gross margin in Q4 2019. AU gross margin represented 60% of AU revenues for Q4 2020, and USU gross margin represented 63% of USU revenues for Q4 2020. AU instructional costs and services represented 18% of AU revenues for Q4 2020, while USU instructional costs and services represented 21% of USU revenues for Q4 2020. AU marketing and promotional costs represented 18% of AU revenues for Q4 2020, while USU marketing and promotional costs represented 16% of USU revenues for Q4 2020.

Net loss applicable to shareholders was $(0.7 million) or net loss per basic share of ($0.03) for fourth quarter of 2020 versus ($1.6 million) or ($0.09) for prior year period. For the fourth quarter of 2020 AU generated $1.9 million of net income, and USU generated $0.6 million of net income. AGI corporate incurred a net loss of ($3.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2020.

EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $0.2 million or 2% margin as compared to an EBITDA of ($0.7 million) or (7%) margin in the fourth quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure was $1.4 million or 10% margin as compared to $0.1 million or 1% margin in prior year period.

AU generated EBITDA of $2.4 million or 24% margin and Adjusted EBITDA of $3.1 million or 31% margin for the fourth quarter of 2020. Note that Aspen’s pre-licensure BSN program accounted for $0.8 million of the $2.4 million EBITDA generated at AU, operating at an EBITDA margin of 36% — remaining the highest margin unit of the Company. USU generated EBITDA of $0.6 million or 15% margin and $0.7 million of Adjusted EBITDA or 17% margin in the fourth quarter of 2020. AGI corporate generated EBITDA of ($2.8 million) and Adjusted EBITDA of ($2.4 million) for Q4 2020.

For the year ended April 30, 2020 the Company reported cash and cash equivalents of $17.9 million, which includes restricted cash of $3.5 million. The Company used cash of ($1.9 million) in operations in the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to using ($2.8 million) in same period last year, an improvement of 31% year-over-year.

The increases in Bookings and enrollments lifted the fiscal year 2020 ARPU by over 27% to $14,514.

Non-GAAP – Financial Measures:

This press release includes both financial measures in accordance with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, as well as non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplemental to, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), operating income (loss), and cash flow from operating activities, liquidity or any other financial measures. They may not be indicative of the historical operating results of AGI nor are they intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Our management uses and relies on Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA, each of which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that both management and shareholders benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons.  Our management recognizes that the non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations because of the excluded items described below.

AGI defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (or loss) from operations before the items in the table below. It is important to note that there were $77,000 of non-recurring charges for the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2020 compared to $106,589 in the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2019. Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of our operating performance because it allows management, investors and analysts to evaluate and assess our core operating results from period-to-period after removing the impact of items that affect comparability.

We have included a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We believe that providing the non-GAAP financial measures, together with the reconciliation to GAAP, helps investors make comparisons between AGI and other companies. In making any comparisons to other companies, investors need to be aware that companies use different non-GAAP measures to evaluate their financial performance. Investors should pay close attention to the specific definition being used and to the reconciliation between such measure and the corresponding GAAP measure provided by each company under applicable SEC rules.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net loss allocable to common shareholders to Adjusted EBITDA:

Definitions

Bookings - defined by multiplying LTV by new student enrollments for each operating unit.

Lifetime Value ("LTV") - Lifetime Value as the weighted average total amount of tuition and fees paid by every new student that enrolls in the Company’s universities, after giving effect to attrition.

Average Revenue per Enrollment ("ARPU") - defined by dividing total bookings by total enrollments for each operating unit.

Marketing Efficiency Ratio ("MER") - is defined as revenue per enrollment divided by cost per enrollment.

EBITDA Margin - is defined as EBITDA divided by revenues. We believe EBITDA margin is useful for analysts and investors as this measure allows a more meaningful comparison between our performance and that of our competitors. EBITDA margin has certain limitations in that it does not take into account the impact to our consolidated statement of operations of certain expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin - is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenues. We believe Adjusted EBITDA margin is useful for analysts and investors as this measure allows a more meaningful comparison between our performance and that of our competitors. Adjusted EBITDA margin has certain limitations in that it does not take into account the impact to our consolidated statement of operations of certain expenses.

Forward-Looking Statements:

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 including the Company being on a trajectory to profitability, our estimates as to Lifetime Value and the future impact of bookings. The words “believe,” “may,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “plan,” “could,” “target,” “potential,” “is likely,” “will,” “expect” and similar expressions, as they relate to us, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our financial condition, results of operations, business strategy and financial needs. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ from those in the forward-looking statements include the continued demand of nursing students for the new programs, student attrition, national and local economic factors including the substantial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, and the competitive impact from the trend of major non-profit universities using online education. Other risks are included in our filings with the SEC including our Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2020. Any forward-looking statement made by us herein speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
