Guru Investment Theses on Apollo Education Group Inc

FPA Capital Fund Comments on Apollo Education Group Inc - May 22, 2015

Apollo (APOL) and DeVry (DV) were both poor performers in the quarter. There is no other way to say it, the second quarter numbers for Apollo were very disappointing – particularly the enrollment numbers. APOL has spent a lot of money on a new Learning Management System (LMS) for all University of Phoenix (UoP) students. This was a massive endeavor on the company’s part and will lead to a large differentiation experience for their students versus the competition. Unfortunately, like many new large software rollouts, the LMS rollout had a couple of bugs that needed to be fixed. For example, if your internet browser was updated to a new version, some of the automation links within LMS were not properly coded and the user experience diminished to the point where some students dropped out of the university. APOL believes the majority of the problems have been addressed and fixed, but management took its eye off the ball with respect to converting prospective students to new enrollees during the past quarter. Management indicated that they are now seeing an improvement in enrollments, but it is still very early in their fiscal third quarter to know for sure whether they have adequately addressed the problems.

We are clearly focused on the U.S. business. However, it is important to note that the company’s global operations are in the process of turning around and will likely be generating positive operating cash flow in the second half of this year. With over $6 of net cash per share on the balance sheet and prospects to generate additional free cash flow for the remainder of the year, APOL has the resources to overcome these missteps and get back on track. For your reference, we bought most of our APOL stock between $16 and $19 per share and made it around a 3% position at around $20. When the stock hit $34, we sold over 25% of our position. The stock price is back to $20 and we are back to about a 3% position.

FPA Capital Fund Comments on Apollo Education Group Inc - Feb 19, 2015

Looking beyond the poor performance of the energy stocks in the quarter and consistent with our investment strategy, we trimmed back two companies, Apollo Education (APOL) and InterDigital (IDCC). InterDigital creates and designs different wireless technologies and then licenses those patents to hardware manufacturers. Apollo provides on-line educational services and grants Bachelor and post- graduate degrees through its For-profit schools.



APOL (APOL) operates the online school called the University of Phoenix (UoP) as well as several international schools. UoP generates approximately 85% of Apollo’s revenue but 100% of its operating earnings. The international schools account for roughly 15% of revenues and are currently losing money but we believe they are quickly moving toward break-even and eventually profitability.



The core operation for Apollo is UoP, which is the largest independent online university in the US. UoP was the first For-profit company to offer online degrees over thirty years ago. The University of Phoenix is a well-known brand, but one that is in the process of being upgraded.



The company has invested a tremendous amount of capital into developing superior software programs not only to educate students, but also to provide a more timely feedback loop to professors who are teaching classes. As UoP rolls out this new software to all of its students, one should expect some disruptions to the business. Thus far, just 3% of the students have incurred a negative experience and dropped out of school. Nevertheless, student satisfaction and superior service for UoP’s cohort of students should help the company differentiate its platform versus either other For-profit or traditional Not- for-profit universities.



APOL is also aggressively courting businesses not just to place their graduates in a well-paying job, but to partner with them and tailor certificate programs that provide students with skills specific to an individual company or industry. Many CEOs will tell you that there is not a jobs problem in America but a skills problem. That is, many traditional, Not-for-profit universities in America are not educating students and imbuing them with skills for the 21st century global labor marketplace. APOL is now working with hundreds of companies to deliver graduates, whether they are fully credentialed students or students with a narrower certificate degree, to businesses that are looking to hire qualified people.



These initiatives will take time to fully implement and for shareholders to see tangible benefits. In the meantime, APOL management has cut expenses like marketing and recruiting to reflect the lower enrollment numbers to maintain profits and free cash flow at the company. Given where APOL was trading, we trimmed back the positioned about 25% during the quarter.



From FPA Capital Fund (Trades, Portfolio) Q4 2014 Letter.

FPA Capital Comments on Apollo - Jul 29, 2013

Apollo (APOL) is a new position in the portfolio that was initiated below $20 share earlier this year in the first quarter and after the stock declined dramatically from over $80 a few years ago. As the stock further declined from the $19 level to close to $16, we added to our position.

As we mentioned in our last letter, our investment thesis in APOL is similar but not identical DeVry. That is, we believe the efficient delivery of quality education to people who did not attend a traditional four-year college is essential for those students and workers to enhance their knowledge and compete in today's domestic and global economy. People with college degrees experience lower unemployment rates and get paid more than those with just a high school diploma. According to U.S. Census Bureau, there are approximately198 million people in the U.S. over the age of 25. 31% of these people have high school as their highest educational attainment and another 17% have some college but no degree. Hence, over 95 million people might be interested in obtaining a college degree. Many for-profit schools offer online programs, night/weekend classes, and convenient locations. All of which help working adults who seek flexible schedules earn a degree.

APOL's earnings peaked a couple of years ago at a shade over $4 per share. We believe the company's EPS could decline substantially over the next year or two, despite the consensus expectations that APOL will earn roughly $3 this year and $2.50 next fiscal year. We further believe APOL's normalized earnings, once the cost cutting efforts are complete, could be higher than street estimates. Assuming the company achieves that level of earnings and that the markets apply a reasonable earnings valuation to the stock price, we believe that the stock has good growth potential. The company's recently released results for its fiscal third quarter provide evidence that management is rationalizing the company's cost structure to generate good free cash flow for shareholders, despite the current challenging enrollment issues. In addition, the balance sheet remains pristine with more than $7 in net cash per share.
