Financial Results for the Three-Month Period Ended December 31: 2017 Compared to 2016

  • Revenues for the quarter were $81.2 million, compared to $84.2 million for the prior year period. The year-over-year revenue variance was attributable to a 5.8% decrease in UTI\'s average student population.
  • Operating expenses for the quarter were $84.8 million, compared to $82.8 million for the prior year period.
  • Operating loss for the quarter was $3.6 million compared to operating income of $1.4 million for the prior year period. The decline reflects the $3.0 million decrease in revenues as well as increases in advertising, contract services and professional services expenses, partially offset by a decrease in compensation expense.
  • Income tax benefit was $2.8 million for the quarter, compared to an income tax expense of $2.6 million for the prior year period. The current period benefit was primarily a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was enacted in December 2017, as well as the loss before taxes during the quarter.
  • Net loss for the quarter was $1.1 million, compared to $1.7 million for the prior year period.
  • Net loss available for distribution to common shareholders was $2.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to $3.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share for the prior year period.
