As the economy continues to trend up, more and more private equity investors are expanding their pursuit of opportunities in the for-profit education space.
Yet as Washington starts to refocus on education regulations, there is new reason for you to take a wary look before you forge ahead.
Over the past few years, many education companies have significantly grown revenue and profitability -- and some extraordinarily so. As a result, there is now a larger pool of privately held education companies that meet the size requirements of mid-market PE funds. Recent transactions such as TA Associates’ purchase of Vatterott, BC Partners’ purchase of ATI, and Princeton Review’s purchase of Penn Foster Education Group, are potentially the front end of a wave of companies that will change ownership over the next year or two.
And while public institutions and community colleges are facing severe financial strain, enrollment in for-profit colleges has more than tripled since 2000. The Obama administration wants America to have the world’s highest percentage of college graduates by 2020, a goal which can’t be met without continued growth of the for-profit sector.
But with the federal government’s new Secretary of Education in place, and bureaucrats arming themselves with transformational agendas, the future growth of for-profit education providers can potentially be affected with the stroke of a pen -- consider the recent removal of private commercial banks from the federal student loan business.
So while there is general strength across the for-profit education sector, it’s not enough to treat the education space like a year ago, or even six months ago (when we held our last education conference).
Your ability to understand regulatory trends and anticipate future issues is absolutely crucial to your success, whether you are searching for your next deal or managing an education portfolio company.
This is why we are zeroing in on strategies to achieve 2009’s banner profit margins during 2010 and 2011 at The Capital Roundtable’s full-day encore MasterClass™ on private equity investing in education companies --
PE Investing in Education Companies --
This all-new MasterClass on Tuesday, July 13, in New York, will focus on how post-secondary education companies can continue to perform in the face of change, and what lies ahead for K-12 providers.
We’ll cover the strategies that will help you prepare for the obstacles that lie ahead and how you can differentiate your portfolio companies from the competition.
Of course some things never change about education, such as the rewards of getting an early start -- as this all-new MasterClass demonstrates. Sign up now, and you will receive our special Early Bird Discount -- a generous savings of $400!
Learn Valuable Lessons on Achieving High Growth Rates.
This all-new MasterClass provides exclusive information on the latest education industry trends, such as the globalization of distance education that is driving opportunities in China and India, and the exponential growth of online delivery in both pure and hybrid modes. You don’t want to remain on the sidelines at an opportunistic time like today, and our content will give you the confidence to take giant steps for the longer term.
You’ll be in especially good hands with Scott Harper, managing director at Primus Capital Funds in Cleveland, serving as our chair.
