Kaplan Higher Education (KHE) includes Kaplan’s domestic postsecondary education businesses, made up of fixed-facility colleges and online postsecondary and career programs. KHE also includes the domestic professional and other continuing education businesses.

Since 2012, KHE has closed campuses, consolidated facilities and reduced its workforce. On September 3, 2015, Kaplan completed the sale of substantially all of the remaining assets of its KHE Campuses business. In connection with these and other plans, KHE incurred $2.5 million and $5.4 million in restructuring costs in the second quarter and first six months of 2015, respectively. For the second quarter of 2015, these costs included severance ($1.0 million), lease obligation losses ($0.9 million) and accelerated depreciation ($0.6 million). For the six months of 2015, these costs included severance ($2.2 million), lease obligation losses ($1.8 million), accelerated depreciation ($1.3 million) and other items ($0.1 million).

In the second quarter of 2015, Kaplan recorded a $6.9 million long-lived asset impairment charge in connection with the KHE Campuses business. KHE results, excluding the impairment charge, include revenue and operating losses (including restructuring charges) related to all KHE Campuses, those sold or closed, including Mount Washington College and Bauder College, as follows:

       
Three Months Ended Six Months Ended
June 30 June 30
(in thousands)     2016     2015     2016     2015
Revenue $ 266     $ 66,152 $ 1,064     $ 131,459
Operating loss $ (907 ) $ (6,776 ) $ (2,099 ) $ (19,063 )
 

In the second quarter and first six months of 2016, KHE revenue declined 34% and 32%, respectively, due to campus sales and closings, and declines in average enrollments at Kaplan University. KHE operating results declined in the second quarter of 2016 due primarily to lower enrollment at Kaplan University, offset by reduced losses at the KHE Campuses business. KHE operating results improved in the first six months of 2016 due to reduced losses at the KHE Campuses business and lower marketing expenditures at Kaplan University.

New higher education student enrollments at Kaplan University declined 25% in the second quarter of 2016 and 31% for the first six months of 2016 due to lower demand across Kaplan University programs. Total students at Kaplan University were 33,367 at June 30, 2016, down 19% from June 30, 2015.

Kaplan University enrollments at June 30, 2016 and 2015, by degree and certificate programs, are as follows:

   
As of June 30
      2016     2015
Certificate 6.6 %     2.9 %
Associate’s 20.4 % 28.0 %
Bachelor’s 50.4 % 46.8 %
Master’s 22.6 %     22.3 %
100.0 %     100.0 %
 

Kaplan Test Preparation (KTP) includes Kaplan’s standardized test preparation programs. KTP revenue declined 1% and 3% for the second quarter and first six months of 2016, respectively. Enrollments, excluding the new economy skills training offerings, were down 10% for the first six months of 2016 due primarily to declines in pre-college programs; however, unit prices were generally higher. In comparison to 2015, KTP operating results were down 1% in the second quarter of 2016, but improved for the first six months of 2016. KTP's results reflect a reduction in operating expenses, despite increased investment in new economy skills training programs.

Kaplan International includes English-language programs, and postsecondary education and professional training businesses largely outside the United States. In January and February 2016, Kaplan acquired Mander Portman Woodward, a leading provider of high-quality, bespoke education to UK and international students in London, Cambridge and Birmingham; and Osborne Books, an education publisher of learning resources for accounting qualifications in the UK.

Kaplan International revenue declined 9% and 10% for the second quarter and first six months of 2016, of which 3% was due to currency fluctuations. The remaining decrease is due to enrollment declines in English-language and UK Pathways programs, partially offset by enrollment growth in Singapore and Australia higher education programs. Revenue growth from the 2016 acquisitions was largely offset by revenue declines due to prior year dispositions. Operating income declined in the second quarter and first six months of 2016, due largely to the declines in English-language and Pathways results, partially offset by operating income from newly acquired businesses.

Kaplan corporate and other represents unallocated expenses of Kaplan, Inc.’s corporate office, other minor businesses and certain shared activities. In the second quarter of 2015, Kaplan corporate recorded $13.6 million in restructuring charges, including accelerated depreciation ($9.7 million) and lease obligation losses ($3.8 million), related to office space managed by Kaplan corporate. In the first six months of 2015, Kaplan corporate recorded $21.2 million in restructuring charges, including accelerated depreciation ($16.2 million) and lease obligation losses ($4.9 million) related to office space managed by Kaplan corporate. In 2016, Kaplan corporate expenses also declined due to the benefits from restructuring activities. Also, 2015 spending for the replacement of its human resources system was not repeated in 2016.

In the first quarter of 2016, Kaplan sold Colloquy, which was a part of Kaplan corporate and other, for a gain of $18.9 million that is included in other non-operating income. In the second quarter of 2015, Kaplan sold two small businesses; one was part of KHE and the other was part of Kaplan International. The gains on these dispositions are included in other non-operating income in the second quarter of 2015.

Television Broadcasting

Revenue at the television broadcasting division increased 6% to $96.5 million in the second quarter of 2016, from $90.8 million in the same period of 2015; operating income for the second quarter of 2016 increased 5% to $44.2 million, from $42.0 million in the same period of 2015. The revenue increase is due primarily to $5.3 million more in retransmission revenues. The increase in operating income is due to the revenue increase, offset by higher spending on digital initiatives and increased network fees.

Revenue at the television broadcasting division increased 8% to $188.5 million in the first six months of 2016, from $174.3 million in the same period of 2015; operating income for the first six months of 2016 increased 6% to $85.4 million, from $80.6 million in the same period of 2015. The revenue increase is due primarily to $10.1 million more in retransmission revenues and a $2.7 million increase in political advertising revenue. The increase in operating income is due to the revenue increase, offset by higher spending on digital initiatives and increased network fees.

In May 2016, the Company announced that it had reached an agreement with Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. and Media General, Inc. to acquire WCWJ, a CW affiliate television station in Jacksonville, FL and WSLS, an NBC affiliate television station in Roanoke, VA for $60 million in cash and the assumption of certain pension obligations. The Company will continue to operate both stations under their current network affiliations. The acquisition is subject to approval by the FCC, other regulatory approvals, and the satisfaction of closing conditions.

Other Businesses

Other businesses is comprised of three manufacturing businesses, including Dekko, a manufacturer of electrical workspace solutions, architectural lighting, and electrical components and assemblies acquired in November 2015; and providers of home health and hospice services. Other businesses also include SocialCode, a provider of marketing solutions on social-media platforms; Slate and Foreign Policy, which publish online and print magazines and websites; and certain other new ventures.

The increase in revenues for the second quarter and first six months of 2016 is mostly due to the Dekko acquisition. In the second quarter and first six months of 2016, positive operating results from the manufacturing and healthcare businesses were offset by intangibles amortization and losses from publishing, SocialCode and new ventures.

Supplementary information regarding manufacturing results is as follows:

In June 2016, the Company acquired the outstanding 20% redeemable noncontrolling interest in Residential Healthcare (Residential). Also in June 2016, Celtic Healthcare (Celtic) and Residential combined their business operations and the Company now owns 90% of the combined entity. The Company incurred approximately $2.0 million in expenses in conjunction with these transactions in the second quarter of 2016.

In June 2016, Residential and a Michigan hospital formed a joint venture to provide home health services to West Michigan patients. Residential manages the operations of the joint venture and holds a 40% interest. The pro rata operating results of the joint venture are included in the Company's equity in earnings of affiliates. In connection with this transaction, the Company recorded a pre-tax gain of $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 that is included in other non-operating income.

In January 2015, Celtic Healthcare and Allegheny Health Network formed a joint venture to combine each other’s home health and hospice assets in the western Pennsylvania region.

The pro rata operating results of the joint venture are included in the Company’s equity in earnings of affiliates. In connection with this transaction, the Company recorded a noncash pre-tax gain of $6.0 million in the first quarter of 2015 that is included in other non-operating income.

The total pension credit for the Company’s traditional defined benefit plan was $32.1 million and $34.1 million in the first six months of 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Without the pension credit, corporate office expenses declined in the first six months of 2016 due primarily to lower compensation costs.

At June 30, 2016, the Company held interests in a number of home health and hospice joint ventures, and interests in several other affiliates. The Company recorded equity in losses of affiliates of $0.9 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared to losses of $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2015.

As a result of these transactions, income from continuing operations excludes the operating results and related loss, if any, on dispositions of these businesses, which have been reclassified to discontinued operations, net of tax, in 2015.

  • the ability to identify trends in the Company’s underlying business; and
  • a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company’s underlying business.

Income from continuing operations, excluding certain items, should not be considered substitutes or alternatives to computations calculated in accordance with and required by GAAP.
