The decrease in revenue is primarily due to lower total student enrollment, which was 59,552 as of September 30, 2014 compared with 68,566 in the same period last year. Additionally, the company reminds that fourth quarter is traditionally a shorter revenue quarter than third quarter, and in the fourth quarter, it will have 83 revenue days, 9 fewer than in the current quarter. The fewer revenue days will result in lower revenues as compared to third quarter, and the lower revenue will be reflected in lower earnings as compared to the current quarter.

The company anticipates new enrollments will be positive throughout 2015, and total enrollments will turn positive in the second half of the year. The company currently view 2014 earnings as the bottom. With these positive student outcomes and a continued focus on operational efficiencies, it is focused on improving operating margins in 2015, and longer-term goal of EBITDA margin remains in the mid-teens. Throughout 2015, it will continue to review uses of cash balances and auctions for enhancing shareholder value, including acquisitions that would meaningfully diversify Bridgepoint Education, share repurchases and other value-creating opportunities. For fiscal 2014, the company expects capital expenditure should be in a 3% to 3.5% range. For the fourth quarter of 2014, the company expects, tax rate is going to be higher within the quarter. The company expects annualized target of 46 3% for 2014.
