Guru Investment Theses on Apollo Education Group Inc

FPA Capital Fund Comments on Apollo Education Group - Feb 09, 2016

APOL (NASDAQ:APOL) is trading at less than book value, less than 10% of sales (net of cash), and less than 1x enterprise value-to-EBITDA. APOL is a very cheap stock, in our opinion, and we added to the position in the quarter.

Let’s discuss APOL in greater detail. APOL declined 28% in the December quarter due to reporting lower than expected new student enrollment and a non-fundamental issue. The most important items, profits and free cash flow, met expectations. Incredible as it is irresponsible, the stock partly sold off because the Chairman of the Board received a margin call on stock he had pledged as collateral for a real estate loan he assumed many years ago. Per our discussion with APOL management, the loan was for a little over $25 million and it had a condition that provided that the loan would come due immediately if APOL declined below $10 a share. This occurred on October 22, when APOL announced its earnings, lower new student enrollments, and a $110 million acquisition in Germany. Shareholders initially sold off the stock a couple of dollars and pushed the stock just below $10. Unfortunately, the Chairman did not have the proceeds immediately available that day to pay off the loan, and the margin clerk proceeded to indiscriminately sell approximately three million of the Chairman’s shares, pushing the stock down to close to $7.

Not only do we find this behavior financially irresponsible but also inconsistent with the prudent stewardship of a publicly-traded company. Subsequently, we wrote a letter to the management team and board, and had a lengthy phone call with the company’s lead- independent board member expressing our views. In summary, we suggested that the company buy back all of the remaining Chairman’s stock and eliminate the dual-class shareholder arrangement. APOL has historically generated excellent returns on capital and has some good opportunities once it completes its repositioning of the University of Phoenix (UoP). Its global business is growing very fast, its global profit margins are expanding, and the global business is expected to generate material operating cash flow this year and in the future. The stock is incredibly cheap by our metrics, at roughly 1x enterprise value-to-EBITDA, but investors are unsure of the repositioning strategy at the UoP and concerned about the heightened regulatory environment.

However, thus far, APOL has largely avoided any material penalties from the numerous investigations that seemingly never end in the for-profit education industry. For example, on January 15, 2016, the Department of Defense (DoD) removed the UoP from probationary status after a three-month review of UoP’s business practices with respect to Tuition Assistance (TA) grants. Anti-for-profit education activists last year made a number of claims about UoP and its enrollment of military personnel in its school. There were concerns that active and former military personnel would never again receive financial aid to attend UoP and APOL would have to pay a massive fine. The bottom line is that the DoD conducted a thorough investigation and within three months removed the TA probation, and APOL was not fined a penny.

Reviewing UoP’s operations, we agree with Tim Slottow, the current President of UoP and the former CFO at the University of Michigan, and his strategy and vision for UoP. President Slottow’s vision is to attract highly qualified adult students to UoP’s Baccalaureate programs and provide them an excellent education in a very efficient system that will allow these students to continue to move their careers up the corporate ladder or healthcare employment track. Retention and graduation rates are among the most significant factors President Slottow is focused on, as well as job placement for students with the hundreds of businesses that recruit from UoP.

Going forward, UoP will require prospective students to take diagnostic tests to determine their capability to complete their degree, rather than having essentially an open-enrollment policy. In the short term this means fewer students will enroll in UoP, but in the long run it is likely more students will persist all the way through to graduation. The objective is to graduate more students who are less likely to drop out and not be able to pay off their student loans.

Subsequent to year-end 2015, on January 11, APOL’s Board of Directors issued a press release indicating that the board hired two investment banks and a law firm to evaluate strategic alternatives for the company. Later that day, the Dow Jones newswire service reported that the private equity firm Apollo Global Management was rumored to have offered over $1 billion to acquire APOL.

We immediately penned another letter to APOL’s board and detailed our assessment of what APOL’s shares are worth. We are concerned that Apollo Global Management is going to offer a reasonable premium above the January 11th, 2015 closing price, but enormously below the intrinsic value of the business, and the board will capitulate and sell the company at the bottom of the cycle. If the board agrees to sell the entire company at what some of the rumors are suggesting -- $1 billion -- that would value the business at less than 2x trailing twelve-months EBITDA -- after considering the net $6 per share of cash on the balance sheet. To put that into perspective, based on Apollo Global Management’s 2015 presentation, LBO takeover EBITDA multiples averaged 9.3x over the past decade, and the lowest average multiple was 8x in 2009 during the financial crisis period.

The $1 billion valuation for APOL would be unquestionably rejected by us, and we hope every other shareholder would reject it. Furthermore, that valuation would give absolutely no consideration for APOL’s rapidly growing international business, nor the large profit improvement opportunity for UoP. Green shoots are now sprouting at UoP, with retention rates starting to turn positive and student enrollment potentially bottoming this quarter. We will update you later should any materially new information be announced with respect to APOL’s strategic review, but below we provide our estimate of what APOL is worth.

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.
