EDU says:

“We face competition for our “Elite English” program primarily from Wall Street Institute and EF English First, both of which offer English training courses for adults in many cities in China. Wall Street Institute began providing high-end English training courses to adults in major cities several years before we entered this market and enjoys a first-mover advantage.”

Last year, Carlyle group sold Wall Street Institute to U.K.-based publisher Pearson PLC for $ 240m.

Nice catch.

Yeah, very expensive. I'm not sure how Karr can have 26% of his portfolio in this name. Seems like a ton of risk.
