private equity investing in education

MarketDrivenEdu is pleased to announce The Capital Roundtable’s full-day conference on Private Equity Investing in Education-Focused Companies.

Coming up on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, in New York City, the theme of this conference is How Successful Investors Spot Rewarding Trends in the Education Industry.

Bain Capital Double Impact Fund’s acquisition of Penn Foster — and its subsequent add-on of Ashworth College — is a classic example of how a private equity firm can successfully capitalize on multiple rewarding trends —

  • online learning
  • middle-skills training
  • counter-cyclical investment
  • roll-ups to add value
  • and impact investing

 

But Bain’s deal is also an investment that keeps in focus two critical long-term fundamentals in the education industry — costs and outcomes.

 

  • Costs — Neither Penn Foster nor Ashworth accepts Title IV funding, and both say this enables them to keep the costs of their educations affordable to students. In fact, Ashworth lists its cost per tuition hour at only $64 — one-seventh the fees charged by one of its notable competitors

 

  • Outcomes — And while both schools have faced issues with outcomes over the years, these appear to have improved because of the two education companies’ unrelenting focus on them. For instance, Bain says an astonishing 60% of Penn Foster’s students report higher pay after graduation.

 

Hotly favored areas of investment in education come and go (remember MOOCs and coding schools?), but the twin fundamentals of costs and outcomes remain constant, or, if anything, have actually increased in importance!

 

Join more than 20 experts as they assess the outlook for the education industry at this all-day conference, chaired by Robert Puopolo, partner at Epic Partners.

At this conference, you’ll enjoy exceptional networking opportunities. The agenda includes ample time, with session breaks and a buffet lunch, to exchange ideas, swap business cards, and form new relationships.

MarketDrivenEdu is pleased to announce it’s 10th annual Media sponsorship of The Capital Roundtable’s full-day conference on Private Equity Investing in Education-Focused Companies.

 

Coming up on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, in New York City, the theme of this conference is The Role for Private Capital in Bridging the Gap Between Education & Employment.

 

As a friend of MarketDrivenEdu, you qualify for a special VIP rate — $995 ($500 off the standard rate). To register, please call Kristi Paris, at 212-832-7300 ext. 0, or email her at kparis@capitalroundtable.com.

 

In this politicized age, it seems like people don’t agree on much to do with education. For instance —

  • 57% of Republicans support charter schools, versus just 36% of Democrats.
  • Only 33% of Republicans think spending on public schools in their district should be increased, versus 58% of Democrats.
  • Just 28% of Republicans believe college is worth the cost, versus 43% of Democrats.

If you’re a private investor, those stats may make you feel nervous. For instance, you may not want to invest in a for-profit college during Donald Trump’s administration, if the next president may be Elizabeth Warren and the rules may change again.

 

One path forward lies in something everyone can agree on — that the U.S. education system needs to do better at preparing people for joining the workforce.

 

Join more than 20 experts as they assess the outlook for PE investing in the education sector at this all-day conference, chaired by Daniel Pianko, co-founder & managing director at University Ventures.

At this conference, you’ll enjoy exceptional networking opportunities. The agenda includes ample time, with session breaks and a buffet lunch, to exchange ideas, swap business cards, and form new relationships.
