While many private equity sectors lie flat with virtually no activity, education continues to grow by leaps and bounds. As the “jobless recovery” continues, people who are unemployed, underpaid, or seeking new jobs are turning to for-profit education providers to enhance job skills, prepare for new careers, or gain needed certification.
And while support for public education is a key tenet of the Obama administration, the reality is different from the hype. States such as California are seeing their budgets slashed to the bone, making it imperative they control costs through deployment of outside tools and services.
Taken together, these trends make for a huge growth opportunity, and it’s why the news from the sector has continually been positive over the past months. Just some recent examples include Princeton Review purchasing Penn Foster Education Group, TA Associates acquiring Vatterott College, and Corinthian Colleges buying Heald College -- with another dozen companies in various stages of transaction right now.
But this begs three big questions among market-savvy investors --
The answers are vital for everyone who invests in, follows or is affected by the education sector - most of all you. Which is why you should click here now to register for The Capital Roundtable’s second annual full-day MasterClass™ being held January 14 in New York City --
PE Investing in Education Companies --
How to Differentiate Your Strategy
To Be Successful in This White-Hot Sector
This is an exceptionally timely way to gain a total picture of the opportunities in 2010 for education companies. You’ll discover how you can best participate in the deal activity, what developments are on the horizon, and what you can do right now to make your current portfolio companies more competitive and profitable.
And here’s a quick lesson on the benefits of decisiveness -- you can sign up now and receive a $300 Early Bird Discount!
For-Profit Education is the Name of the Game.
Attitudes toward post-secondary education are undergoing a sea of change, where for-profit providers using the newest technologies and tools are no longer regarded as second fiddle. In high-demand areas such as nursing, allied health, IT networking and culinary arts, for-profit education has newfound credibility with employers and media opinion leaders -- and increasingly, the edge with student enrollment.
It’s why many not-for-profit educational institutions have folded, shuttered, and/or sold campuses, or in some cases converted to for-profit status. Working adults are looking for degrees and other credentials that provide a competitive edge in a tight job market, and they are weighing their choices of institution with an entirely new set of decision criteria.
At our initial 2009 Education MasterClass, every seat was filled with investors, lenders, and other professionals looking to be updated on this exciting area. And we expect our second full-day MasterClass™ on Thursday, January 14, 2010, to be no different. You’ll quickly get up to speed on where the demand is projected to be for the coming decade. Plus you’ll hear how both private and public investors currently view the industry and what steps you can take to reap the most benefit.
So if you’re a PE investor or mezz lender -- please register now.
The content of this MasterClass is fresh, timely, and unavailable anywhere else -- not in print, not online, only here. What’s more, it’s all live, candid, and open for discussion -- you’ll have plenty of time to network with our featured speakers, plus your fellow attendees, between panel presentations and over lunch. You can expect detailed answers to such real-world issues as --
You’ll also receive a thorough grounding on the State and Federal government regulations that can scuttle deals when ignored or improperly followed. The administration has recently overhauled the U.S. Department of Education to promote its pet initiatives, and it only makes good sense to align your plans with the public support available.
We’re pleased that your guide through this changing landscape will be one of today’s best-known PE education industry experts. Our chair for this MasterClass is Bruce A. Eatroff, partner at Halyard Capital in New York City. A frequent speaker at industry conferences and events, and a veteran of Wall Street dealmaking for more than twenty years, Bruce is exceptionally well-qualified to lead this MasterClass with his comprehensive knowledge, transaction experience, and good humor.
