PHOENIX, Dec. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Technical Institute, Inc. (NYSE: UTI), a leading workforce solutions provider of transportation, skilled trades and healthcare education programs, reported financial results for the fiscal 2022 full year and fourth quarter ended September 30, 2022. 

  • Full year revenue of $418.8 million in 2022, an increase of 25.0% compared to the prior year, and $110.6 million in the fourth quarter, up 13.5% compared to the prior year quarter.
  • Full year net income was $25.8 million compared to $14.6 million in the prior year, while net income for the fourth quarter was $2.8 million, down 76.5% from prior year period. Adjusted net income(1) for the full year was $35.5 million, while fourth quarter adjusted net income(1) was $8.0 million.
  • Full year adjusted EBITDA(1) was $55.9 million, an increase of 71.8% versus the prior year, while fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA(1) was $14.0 million, a decrease of 23.1% versus the prior year period.
  • New student starts in the full year increased 2.7% from the prior year, while average active students increased 11.7%.
  • Met or surpassed fiscal year 2022 guidance range for all key financial metrics.
  • Provided fiscal 2023 guidance, including revenue of $595 - $610 million and adjusted EBITDA(1) of $58 - $62 million, including the ten month impact in fiscal 2023 of the Concorde Career Colleges, Inc. (Concorde) acquisition.

"We delivered strong financial results for the fiscal year that were inline or at the high-end of the guidance we provided at the beginning of the year. This was an important year for the growth of the Company, as we expanded our UTI business through new program offerings and new campuses to reach more students, enhanced our relationships with our employer and industry partners, and made significant progress against our long-term growth and diversification strategy with the acquisition of Concorde Career Colleges," said Jerome Grant, CEO of Universal Technical Institute. "Overall, I am proud of what our team accomplished in 2022, as we progressed and grew as a Company and continued to enhance the experiences and outcomes for our students."

Grant continued, "As we move into 2023, we are strategically positioned to not only execute on our previously established longer-term targets for our growth and diversification strategy, but also expand the scope of this strategy going forward. The addition of Concorde is a transformational move in our evolution as a workforce solutions provider and drastically increases our future growth prospects. With our plan in place for 2023, we expect to have great momentum heading into 2024 and beyond, and we are excited about the opportunities that we have in front of us."

Financial Results for the Three-Month Period Ended September 30, 2022 Compared to 2021

  • Revenues increased 13.5% to $110.6 million, compared to $97.5 million. The increase is primarily due to the increase in average undergraduate full-time active students driven by the addition of MIAT, and higher revenue earned per student.
  • Operating expenses increased 26.5% to $107.2 million, compared to $84.7 million. The increase was primarily driven by the incremental cost of delivery associated with growth in the average student population, including the addition of MIAT. The increase was also due to start up costs for our new campuses, acquisition related costs, integration related costs and an increase in advertising costs.
  • Operating income was $3.5 million compared to $12.8 million.
  • Net income was $2.8 million compared to $12.0 million. Adjusted net income(1) was $8.0 million compared to $13.9 million.
  • Basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $0.03 compared to $0.20.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $14.0 million compared to $18.3 million.
  • New student starts decreased 3.2%.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

At September 30, 2022, UTI's total available liquidity was $95.4 million consisting of cash and cash equivalents and held-to-maturity investments. On December 1, 2022, the company completed the Concorde acquisition for a purchase price of $50 million. Preceding the close of the acquisition, the company drew $90 million from the new revolving credit facility established in November of 2022.

For fiscal 2022, the company incurred $79.5 million of cash capital expenditures (capex) largely driven by strategic investments such as $28.7 million for the purchase of the Lisle, IL campus and $28.6 million for the initial build out and set up of the two new campuses in Austin, TX and Miramar, FL. Approximately $19.0 million of capex spend was for other major projects during the year including the facility consolidations in Avondale, AZ and Orlando, FL and the new welding program launches in Mooresville, NC, and Exton, PA. The remaining capex spend supported the initial stages of the MIAT program expansions along with other smaller initiatives and maintenance capex needs.

"Our flexible and diverse business model enabled us to deliver strong financial and operational performance for the fiscal year that met or surpassed our financial guidance across all key measures," said Troy Anderson, CFO of Universal Technical Institute. "As we move into the new fiscal year, we are starting off with the completion of two major milestones, the closing of the Concorde acquisition and our recently established revolving credit facility, the latter serving as a critical component of our long-term capital structure planning that allows us to yield the benefits of our growth and efficiency initiatives and enables us to be opportunistic as we enter our next phase of growth. We are entering fiscal 2023 as a more nimble and stronger company with achievable growth initiatives that are well underway, a healthy balance sheet and industry-leading offerings for our students."

Financial Results for the Year Ended September 30, 2022 Compared to 2021

  • Revenues increased 25.0% to $418.8 million, which was at the higher end of the full year guidance range of $410 - $420 million, compared to $335.1 million, due to an increase in average undergraduate full-time active students and higher revenue earned per student, as well as the addition of MIAT.
  • Operating expenses increased 23.8% to $396.4 million, compared to $320.1 million. Similar to the three months ended, the increase was primarily due to the incremental cost of delivery associated with growth in the average student population, the inclusion of MIAT, increased marketing expenses, and ongoing investments in support of our growth and diversification strategy.
  • Operating income was $22.4 million compared to $14.9 million.
  • Net income was $25.8 million compared to $14.6 million and includes an income tax benefit of approximately $5.4 million largely due to the valuation allowance reversal during the year. Adjusted net income(1) was $35.5 million, above the high-end of the full year guidance range of $32 - $35 million, compared to $17.5 million.
  • Basic EPS was $0.39 compared to $0.17. Diluted EPS was $0.38 compared to $0.17.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $55.9 million, above the high-end of the full year guidance range, compared to $32.5 million.
  • Cash flow provided by operating activities was $46.0 million compared to $55.2 million.
  • Adjusted free cash flow(1) was $34.9 million, slightly below the full year guidance range of $35 - $40 million.
  • New student starts increased 2.7% which was within the updated full year guidance range.

Fiscal 2023 Financial Outlook

"In 2023, we will be focused on successfully integrating Concorde into the UTI family and ensuring that we are well-positioned to take the next step in our growth and diversification strategy. Our fiscal 2023 guidance reflects the ten months of contribution of the Concorde acquisition, as well as the ramp-up of the new UTI campuses and new program launches, all of which will drive strong revenue growth. Despite the revenue growth, we expect adjusted EBITDA margin will be lower in 2023. There are several factors contributing to this, including low revenue growth in UTI as a result of lower new student starts in 2022, UTI growth investments including new campus and program ramps along with admissions channel investments, and overall inflationary pressures. Also contributing is the overall lower margin profile of Concorde and transitionary investments to operate that business in a public company environment ahead of realizing operating synergies. As we progress through 2023 and into 2024 with our currently announced initiatives including Concorde, we expect to see accelerating organic revenue growth and overall margin expansion. With that, we now see the potential to deliver revenue in excess of $700 million and adjusted EBITDA approaching $100 million in fiscal 2024," concluded Anderson.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), UTI also discloses certain non-GAAP financial information in this press release and may similarly disclose non-GAAP financial information on the related conference call. These financial measures are not recognized measures under GAAP and are not intended to be and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.  UTI discloses these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they provide investors an additional analytical tool to clarify its results of operations and identify underlying trends. Additionally, UTI believes that these measures may also help investors compare its performance on a consistent basis across time periods. Additional details on our non-GAAP measures and the tables reconciling these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure are provided below.

Adjusted EBITDA

For fiscal 2022, UTI defined adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for items not considered as part of the company's normal recurring operations. Starting in fiscal 2023, UTI defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for stock-based compensation expense and items not considered as part of the company's normal recurring operations.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow

UTI defines adjusted free cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures, adjusted for items not considered as part of the company's normal recurring operations.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss)

UTI defines adjusted net income (loss) as net income (loss), adjusted for items that affect trends in underlying performance from year to year and are not considered normal recurring operations, including the income tax effect on the adjustments utilizing the effective tax rate.     

UTI discloses any campus adjustments as direct costs (net of any corporate allocations). Management utilizes adjusted figures as performance measures internally for operating decisions, strategic planning, annual budgeting and forecasting.  For the periods presented, this includes acquisition-related costs for both announced and potential acquisitions, integration costs for completed acquisitions, costs related to the purchase of our Lisle, Illinois and Avondale, Arizona campuses, impairment charges related to intangible assets, start-up costs associated with the Austin, TX and Miramar, FL campus openings, lease accounting adjustments resulting from the purchase of our Lisle, Illinois campus and our campus consolidation efforts, the income tax benefit recorded as a result of the CARES Act, and severance expenses due to the CEO transition. To obtain a complete understanding of UTI's performance, these measures should be examined in connection with net income (loss) and net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, as presented in the financial statements and notes thereto included in the annual and quarterly filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").  Because the items excluded from these non-GAAP measures are significant components in understanding and assessing UTI's financial performance under GAAP, these measures should not be considered to be an alternative to net income (loss) or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities as a measure of UTI's operating performance or liquidity.  Exclusion of items in the non-GAAP presentation should not be construed as an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Other companies, including other companies in the education industry, may define and calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than UTI does, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure across similarly titled performance measures presented by other companies. A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is provided below and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations.

Forward Looking Statements

All statements contained in this press release and the related conference call, other than statements of historical fact, are "forward-looking" statements within the meaning of the safe harbor from civil liability provided for such statements by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (set forth in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended). These forward-looking statements which address UTI's expected future business and financial performance, may contain words such as "goal," "target," "future," "estimate," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "project," "may," "should," "will," the negative form of these expressions or similar expressions. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding (1) UTI's expectation that it will meet its fiscal year 2023 guidance for new student start growth (decline), revenue growth, Adjusted net income, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow; (2) expectation that it will continue to expand its value proposition and build a business that can grow in low-to-mid single digits with potential upside, regardless of the economic environment; (3) UTI's expectation that it will succeed in new campus launches next year; and (4) UTI's expectation of the successful integration of the Concorde acquisition. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on UTI's current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of its business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of UTI's control. UTI's actual results and financial condition may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could affect UTI's actual results include, among other things, impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic, changes to federal and state educational funding, changes to regulations or agency interpretation of such regulations affecting the for-profit education industry, possible failure or inability to obtain regulatory consents and certifications for new or modified campuses or instruction, potential increased competition, changes in demand for the programs UTI offers, increased investment in management and capital resources, failure to comply with the restrictive covenants and UTI's ability to pay the amounts when due under the Credit Agreement with Fifth Third Bank, National Association, the effectiveness of UTI student recruiting, advertising and promotional efforts, changes to interest rates and unemployment, general economic and political conditions, the adoption of new accounting standards, and other risks that are described from time to time in UTI's public filings. Further information on these and other potential factors that could affect the financial results or condition may be found in the company's filings with the SEC.  Any forward-looking statements made by UTI in this press release and the related conference call are based only on information currently available to UTI and speak only as of the date on which it is made.  UTI expressly disclaims any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future developments, changes in expectations, any changes in events, conditions or circumstances, or otherwise.

The GAAP effective tax rate for the twelve months ended September 30, 2022 has been adjusted to remove the impact from the MIAT purchase accounting adjustments for deferred tax liabilities and the reversal of the valuation allowance, both of which created a net tax benefit for the period. The GAAP effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2022 has been adjusted to reflect the normalized annual rate excluding the items noted in the twelve month rate.

The graduate employment rate calculation is based on all graduates from campuses owned and operated by UTI during the below reporting periods, including those who completed manufacturer specific advanced training programs, from October 1, 2020, to September 30, 2021, and October 1, 2019, to September 30, 2020, respectively. The calculation excludes graduates not available for employment because of continuing education, military service, health, incarceration, death or international student status. Graduates are counted as employed based on a verified understanding of the graduate's job duties to assess and confirm that the graduate's primary job responsibilities are in his or her field of study. We verify employment by sending written verification requests to the graduate and/or the employer or collecting written information with all required elements. Verifications must include employer name, job duties, job title, hire date and employer contact information. Once we receive written verification from either source, the graduate is classified as employed in field as long as all verification requirements are met. If any information provided in a written format requires clarification, a call is made to clarify certain elements with notes documented in our student database. In instances where we are unable to obtain written verification, we also classify graduates as employed in field if we are able to obtain verbal verification, collecting the same information as noted above, from both the graduate and the employer. We periodically review a sample of employment verifications to ensure accuracy.
