Apollo not enrolling students in programs impacted by gainful employment rules

In a regulatory filing, Apollo Education disclosed that in connection with the University of Phoenix's initiative to transform itself into a more focused, higher retaining and less complex institution, beginning in September 2015 and continuing through early fiscal year 2017 the University ceased enrolling new students in programs it believed may be impacted by new gainful employment regulations. As a result of these and subsequent actions, as of December 2016 the University will have ceased enrolling new students in all of the programs that failed to meet both of the minimum debt service-to-earnings ratios for DMYR15. "These programs, and the other programs that were retired in connection with the broader initiative to transform the University, represented approximately 20% of the University's total degreed enrollment as of August 31, 2016. Students who are currently enrolled in such programs are being taught-out. The University intends to provide financial and other assistance to its students who are enrolled in programs that lose eligibility to participate in Title IV student financial aid due to application of the gainful employment regulations, in order to assist the affected students to complete their programs of study. The ultimate cost of this assistance cannot be predicted currently, but could be substantial, depending on the number of students who qualify and choose to participate," the company stated. Based on the draft rates, University of Phoenix programs representing approximately 16% of the University's total degreed enrollment as of August 31, 2016 failed to satisfy either of the two minimum debt service-to-earnings ratios. Programs that fail to meet both tests for two out of three consecutive years will be ineligible to participate in Title IV student financial aid. In addition, a small number of programs neither passed nor failed and therefore are in the "zone." Programs that are in the zone, or fail, for four consecutive years will be ineligible to participate in Title IV student financial aid. "We intend to monitor these programs carefully and, where appropriate and feasible, make modifications over time to address the impact of the gainful employment regulations," the company added.

Apollo could be worth $17/share if taken private, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Appert says Apollo Education Group could be worth $13-$17 per share in a go-private transaction. The stock has "meaningful" upside potential if the company can overcome the legal, regulatory and financial hurdles to complete a sale transaction, Appert tells investors in a research note. He says there is "considerable uncertainty" as to whether Apollo can overcome such challenges. The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on the stock with a $9 price target.

Piper sees regulatory pressure on education industry easing
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Appert thinks regulatory pressure in the education industry could "ease meaningfully" in the Trump administration. The sector could see a "positive reset in valuations" after significant underperformance over the last several years, Appert tells investors in a research note. His top picks in the space are DeVry (DV) and Grand Canyon (LOPE).
