Michael Mathews, Chairman & CEO of Aspen Group, commented, 鈥淎spen鈥檚 team delivered another quarter of record financial and enrollment results. In our seasonally weakest quarter, revenue growth accelerated 46% year-over-year, a material step-up from the prior quarter鈥檚 increase of 38%. The quarter's revenue acceleration was bolstered by the record quarterly enrollments in our USU MSN-FNP and Aspen University Pre-licensure BSN programs, our highest LTV degrees. The Company delivered these record enrollment results while increasing its marketing spend by only $50K sequentially. As a result, marketing spend dropped to 18% of revenue, which lifted GAAP gross profit to $9.0 million for a 56% improvement over Q1 2020. Operating expenses grew by 29%, reflecting the staffing increase in our enrollment center to support our FY鈥2021 annual enrollment goals across all our business units. Despite the increase in G&A, operating margin expanded and net loss narrowed by 55%. Our performance this quarter demonstrates the scale in our business and confirms that the Company is on the path to profitability.鈥

Mr. Mathews continued, 鈥淔inally, as we announced earlier today, Aspen Group is now debt free following the auto conversion of its $10 million secured Convertible Notes, eliminating $700,000 of interest per annum. Moreover, given the improving operating performance of the company, elimination of the debt, and current cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents of approximately $19 million, we don鈥檛 intend to utilize our existing undrawn $5 million revolving credit facility.鈥

*Non-GAAP 鈥 Financial Measures:

This press release includes both financial measures in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, as well as non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company鈥檚 performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplemental to, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), operating income (loss), and cash flow from operating activities, liquidity or any other financial measures. They may not be indicative of the historical operating results of AGI nor are they intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Our management uses and relies on Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that management, analysts and shareholders benefit from referring to the following non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate and assess our core operating results from period-to-period after removing the impact of items that affect comparability. Our management recognizes that the non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations because of the excluded items described below.

We have included a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We believe that providing the non-GAAP financial measures, together with the reconciliation to GAAP, helps investors make comparisons between AGI and other companies. In making any comparisons to other companies, investors need to be aware that companies use different non-GAAP measures to evaluate their financial performance.

Investors should pay close attention to the specific definition being used and to the reconciliation between such measure and the corresponding GAAP measure provided by each company under applicable SEC rules.

AGI defines Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as net earnings (loss) from operations adding back non-recurring charges and stock-based compensation expense as reflected in the table below.听 Included are $543,384 of non-recurring charges for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, compared to $132,949 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020. The non-recurring charges for Q1 fiscal 2021 include $123,947 of interest expense, which arose from the acceleration of amortization arising from the exercise of warrants issued to a lender.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net loss and earnings (loss) per share to Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share:

Three Months Ended July 31,
2020 2019
Earnings (loss) per share $ (0.04 ) $ (0.11 )

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) $ 87,298 $ (1,443,916 )
Adjusted Earnings (Loss) per Share $ 0.00 $ (0.08 )

**Same share count used for GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures.

AGI defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (or loss) from operations before the items in the table below. Included are $419,437 of non-recurring charges for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, compared to $132,949 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020. An additional non-recurring item in Q1 2021 of $123,947 is included in interest expense, net, which arose from the acceleration of amortization arising from the exercise of warrants issued to a lender. Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of our operating performance because it allows management, analysts and investors to evaluate and assess our core operating results from period-to-period after removing the impact of items that affect comparability.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA:

Three Months Ended July 31,

Adjusted EBITDA $ 1,307,298 $ (86,099 )

Definitions

Bookings 鈥 is defined by multiplying LTV by new student enrollments for each operating unit.

Lifetime Value ("LTV") 鈥 is calculated as the weighted average total amount of tuition and fees paid by every new student that enrolls in the Company鈥檚 universities, after giving effect to attrition.

Average Revenue per Enrollment ("ARPU") 鈥 is defined by dividing total bookings by total enrollments.

Marketing Efficiency Ratio ("MER") 鈥 is defined as revenue per enrollment divided by cost per enrollment.

EBITDA Margin 鈥 is defined as EBITDA divided by revenues. We believe EBITDA margin is useful for management, analysts and investors as this measure allows a more meaningful comparison between our performance and that of our competitors. EBITDA margin has certain limitations in that it does not take into account the impact to our consolidated statement of operations of certain expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin 鈥 is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenues. We believe Adjusted EBITDA margin is useful for management, analysts and investors as this measure allows a more meaningful comparison between our performance and that of our competitors. Adjusted EBITDA margin has certain limitations in that it does not take into account the impact to our consolidated statement of operations of certain expenses.

Forward-Looking Statements:

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 including the Company being on a path 听to profitability, expected fiscal 2021 revenue, our estimates as to Lifetime Value and the future impact of bookings. The words 鈥渂elieve,鈥 鈥渕ay,鈥 鈥渆stimate,鈥 鈥渃ontinue,鈥 鈥渁nticipate,鈥 鈥渋ntend,鈥 鈥渟hould,鈥 鈥減lan,鈥 鈥渃ould,鈥 鈥渢arget,鈥 鈥減otential,鈥 鈥渋s likely,鈥 鈥渨ill,鈥 鈥渆xpect鈥 and similar expressions, as they relate to us, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our financial condition, results of operations, business strategy and financial needs. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ from those in the forward-looking statements include the continued demand of nursing students for the new programs, student attrition, national and local economic factors including the substantial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, and the competitive impact from the trend of major non-profit universities using online education and consolidation among our competitors. Other risks are included in our filings with the SEC including our Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2020, and prospectus supplement dated August 31, 2020. Any forward-looking statement made by us herein speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
