National American University Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ:
NAUH), which through its wholly owned subsidiary operates National
American University ("NAU"), a regionally accredited, proprietary,
multi-campus institution of higher learning, today reported unaudited
financial results for its FY 2013 third quarter and nine months ended
February 28, 2013. 
Ronald L. Shape, Ed.D., Chief Executive Officer of the Company,
commented, "We were pleased to report stable growth on our top and
bottom lines during the fiscal 2013 third quarter as we continue to
realize greater economies of scale resulting from transitioning our
focus from geographic expansion to enrollment growth at t
he campus
locations we opened over the past few years. In spite of the
challenging environment facing our industry, NAU's enrollment during
the winter 2012-2013 quarter increased 4.8% to 11,489 students, which
was in line with our expectations. During the fiscal 2013 third
quarter, we continued to realize greater efficiencies with improved
margins driven by our educational services and SG&A line items as we
made progress in growing enrollments at our existing campus
locations. This led to margin expansion throughout the Company. We
anticipate this trend will continue, however, at a more moderate rate
as we are in the process of increasing our admissions advisor count,
and we have launched the first course at the doctorate level. The
increase in admissions advisors will result in additional salary
expense as well as marketing expense as we continue to train and
educate our existing admissions staff and hire additional advisors to
better serve our growing student population."  
Operating Review 
NAU currently leases 37 physical properties in the states of
Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico,
Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota and Texas. Several sites operate as
hybrid learning centers in strategic geographic locations. These
centers utilize small physical facilities through which the
university provides face-to-face support services as students
participate in select, traditional classroom courses while completing
their remaining coursework online. 
Of NAU's 37 locations, the following sites are pending regulatory
approvals: 


 
--  Tigard, OR
--  Roueche Graduate Center in Austin, TX
--  Houston, TX

  
Completion of Sale of Rapid City Property 
The Company today announced that it has closed on the sale of the
property located in downtown Rapid City, South Dakota, through a
contract for deed. The property was sold for $4 million at a 5%
interest rate with a three-year balloon payment. The Company expects
to record the sale by removing the asset from its books and recording
a $4.0 million note receivable and a $1.67 million deferred gain that
will be recognized once the cash for the note receivable is received.
The Company will continue to occupy a portion of the facility for its
veterinarian tech program through a 10-year lease that becomes
effective June 1, 2013. 
4.8% Enrollment Increase 
Total NAU student enrollment for the winter term of 2013 increased
4.8% to 11,489 students, up from 10,968 during the prior winter term.
Students enrolled in 99,694 credit hours compared to 96,745 credit

students continues to be in the mid-30s, with those seeking
undergraduate degrees remaining the highest portion of NAU's student
population.

Financial Review 
The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, operates in two
business segments: the academic segment, which consists of NAU's
undergraduate and graduate education programs and contributes the
primary portion of the Company's revenue; and ownership in multiple
apartments and condominium complexes from which
 it derives sales and
rental income. The real estate operations generated approximately
0.9% of revenues for the quarter ended February 28, 2013.  
Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Financial Results 


 
--  Total revenues for the FY 2013 third quarter increased 7.1% to $32.1
    million from $29.9 million for the same period last year. Primarily as
    a result of NAU's enrollment growth, the academic segment's total
    revenue increased 7.1% to $31.8 million from $29.7 million for the
    prior-year period.
    
    
--  For the FY 2013 third quarter, educational services expense was $7.0
    million, or 22.2% of the academic segment's total revenue, compared to
    $7.0 million, or 23.4%, for the FY 2012 third quarter. The decrease as
    a percentage of total revenue was the result of economies of scale
    being realized with the expansion of NAU's physical footprint.
    
    
    Educational services expense specifically relates to the academic
    segment, and includes salaries and benefits of faculty and academic
    administrators, costs of educational supplies, facility costs, faculty
    reference and support material and related academic costs.
    
    
--  During the FY 2013 third quarter, SG&A expenses were $20.7
    million, or 64.4% of total revenues, compared to $21.0 million, or
    70.3%, in the prior-year period. The decrease was primarily a result
    of aligning marketing expenses with the number of admissions
    advisors.
    
    
--  Income before income taxes and non-controlling interest for the FY
    2013 third quarter increased 127% to $2.7 million from $1.2 million
    for the same period last year.
    
    
--  Net income attributable to the Company for the FY 2013 third quarter
    increased 208% to $1.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share based on
    25.6 million shares outstanding, from $0.5 million, or $0.02 per
    diluted share based on 26.6 million shares outstanding, in the
    prior-year period. The decrease in number of shares outstanding
    resulted from the Company's repurchasing of 838,058 shares of common
    stock as a part of its 2011-2012 stock repurchase program.
    
    
--  EBITDA for the FY 2013 third quarter increased 74.2% to $4.4 million
    from $2.5 million in the prior-year period. A table reconciling EBITDA
    to net income can be found at the end of this release.

  
Fiscal 2013 Nine Months Financial Results 


 
--  Total revenues for the first nine months of FY 2013 increased 11.9% to
    $96.0 million from $85.8 million for the same period last year.
    Primarily as a result of steady enrollment growth, the academic
    segment's total revenue increased 12.0% to $95.2 million from $85.0
    million for the prior-year period. The Company attributes the
    enrollment growth to its investment in new program development,
    program expansion, and improved enrollment management systems and
    recruiting procedures. The increase in the academic segment's revenues
    was also the result of increased book sales driven by enrollment
    growth and the implementation of a new online bookstore vendor and
    book-selling process, in addition to a Board of Governors-approved
    average tuition increase of 5.4% that became effective September
    2012.
    
    
--  NAU's educational services expense for the first nine months of FY
    2013 was $21.7 million, or 22.8% of the academic segment's total
    revenue, compared to $20.2 million, or 23.8%, in the prior-year
    period. The decrease as a percentage of academic segment revenues was
    the result of economies of scale and efficiencies gained from
    geographic expansion and ensuing enrollment growth.
    
    
--  During the first nine months of FY 2013, SG&A expenses were $61.5
    million, or 64.0% of total revenues, compared to $57.2 million, or
    66.7%, in the prior-year period. During the period, the Company also
    incurred $0.7 million in increased expenses for unplanned
    health-related insurance claims.
    
    
--  Income before income taxes and non-controlling interest for the first
    nine months of FY 2013 increased 14.1% to $7.1 million from $6.2
    million for the same period last year.
    
    
--  Net income attributable to the Company during the first nine months of
    FY 2013 was $4.3 million, or $0.17 per diluted share based on 25.6
    million shares outstanding, compared to $3.5 million, or $0.13 per
    diluted share based on 26.9 million shares outstanding, in the
    prior-year period.
    
    
--  The Company's EBITDA for the first nine months of FY 2013 increased
    25.8% to $12.0 million from $9.5 million in the prior-year period. A
    table reconciling EBITDA to net income can be found at the end of this
    release.

EBITDA consists of income attributable to the Company, less income
from non-controlling interest, plus loss from non-controlling
interest, minus interest income, plus interest expense (which is not
related to any debt but to the accounting required for the capital
lease), plus income taxes, plus depreciation and amortization. The
Company uses EBITDA as a measure of operating performance. However,
EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under U.S. generally accepted
accounting principles, or GAAP, and when analyzing its operating
performance, investors should use EBITDA in addition to, and not as
an alternative for, income as determined in accordance with GAAP.
Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's
presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled
measures of other companies and is therefore limited as a comparative
measure. Furthermore, as an analytical tool, EBITDA has additional
limitations, including that (a) it is not intended to be a measure of
free cash flow, as it does not consider certain cash requirements
such as tax payments; (b) it does not reflect changes in, or cash
requirements for, its working capital needs; and (c) although
depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being
depreciated and amortized often will have to be replaced in the
future, and EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such
replacements, or future requirements for capital expenditures or
contractual commitments. To compensate for these limitations, the
Company evaluates its profitability by considering the economic
effect of the excluded expense items independently as well as in
connection with its analysis of cash flows from operations and
through the use of other financial measures. 
The Company believes EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating
its operating performance because it is widely used to measure a
company's operating performance without regard to certain non-cash
expenses (such as depreciation and amortization) and expenses that
are not reflective of its core operating results over time. The
Company believes EBITDA presents a meaningful measure of corporate
performance exclusive of its capital structure, the method by which
assets were acquired and non-cash charges, and provides us with
additional useful information to measure its performance on a
consistent basis, particularly with respect to changes in performance
from period to period.
