"Bridgepoint Education's positive second quarter results across all key reporting metrics were driven by strong total student enrollment growth," said Andrew Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Bridgepoint Education. "With quality as the overriding driver of our operations, it is our value proposition -- a combination of affordability, transferability, accessibility and heritage - that resonates with our current and prospective students, and remains a key point of differentiation for Bridgepoint and its academic institutions. The positive results generated by this value proposition are a testament to a solid management team experienced in operating large-scale education companies and an academic team dedicated to achieving high quality learning outcomes."

See "Forward-Looking Statements," "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" below.

  • Total student enrollment is expected to be between 48,000 and 49,000 at December 31, 2009.
  • GAAP revenue is expected to be between $425.0 million and $430.0 million.
  • GAAP net income is expected to be between $32.4 million and $33.5 million.
  • Non-GAAP net income is expected to be between $58.1 million and $59.2 million.
  • GAAP fully diluted earnings per common share is expected to be between $0.50 and $0.52, based on an estimated fully diluted weighted average share count of 45.5 million for the year ending December 31, 2009, as discussed below.
  • Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per common share is expected to be between $1.00 and $1.02, based on an estimated fully diluted weighted average share count of 58.1 million for the year ending December 31, 2009.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which statements are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP instructional costs and services, non-GAAP marketing and promotional expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per common share.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of its recurring core business operating results and may help in comparing its current-period results with those of prior periods. Management believes that they and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making and (2) they are used by institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the results of the Company's business.

The material limitations of these non-GAAP financial measures are as follows: non-GAAP instructional costs and services, non-GAAP marketing and promotional expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per common share are not recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be alternatives to instructional costs and services, marketing and promotional expenses, general and administrative expenses, operating income, net income or fully diluted earnings per common share, respectively, as indicators of operating performance or any other GAAP measures. Moreover, because not all companies use identical measures and calculations, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. These limitations are compensated for by using non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with traditional GAAP operating performance and cash-flow measures.

The following is a description of the non-GAAP financial measures referenced above:

Non-GAAP operating income. Non-GAAP operating income is defined as operating income, plus (1) the charge of $11.1 million taken in the first quarter of 2009 related to the settlement of a stockholder claim (of which $10.6 million was non-cash), and (2) the non-cash expense of $30.4 million taken in the second quarter of 2009 related to the acceleration of certain exit options in connection with the Company's initial public offering, as discussed below.

  • Settlement of stockholder claim. In February 2009, certain holders of common stock and warrants to purchase common stock asserted various claims against the Company, its directors and officers and its majority stockholder. On March 29, 2009, the Company reached a settlement with the claimants regarding these claims. The Company recorded a total expense of $11.1 million related to the settlement, of which $10.6 million was a non-cash expense, in the first quarter of 2009.
  • Acceleration of exit options. In March 2009, the Company's board of directors amended certain exit options awarded to members of the management team to add an additional vesting condition so that the number of shares underlying the options that would not have vested upon the closing of the Company's initial public offering, under the original terms of the options, would vest in full upon the closing of the offering. The amendment to the exit options resulted in additional compensation expense of $30.4 million, a non-cash expense which was recorded upon the completion of the offering in the second quarter of 2009.

Non-GAAP instructional costs and services. Non-GAAP instructional costs and services is defined as instructional costs and services less the portion of the $30.4 million option acceleration charge taken in the second quarter of 2009 attributable to instructional costs and services ($2.1 million).

Non-GAAP marketing and promotional expenses. Non-GAAP marketing and promotional expenses is defined as marketing and promotional expenses less the portion of the $30.4 million option acceleration charge taken in the second quarter of 2009 attributable to marketing and promotional expenses ($5.0 million).

Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses is defined as general and administrative expenses, less (1) the $11.1 million settlement charge taken in the first quarter of 2009 and (2) the portion of the $30.4 million option acceleration charge taken in the second quarter of 2009 attributable to general and administrative expenses ($23.3 million).

Non-GAAP net income. Non-GAAP net income is defined as net income, plus (1) management's current estimate of the net income effect of the $11.1 million settlement charge taken in the first quarter of 2009, and (2) the net income effect of $17.1 million related to the $30.4 million option acceleration charge taken in the second quarter of 2009.

Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per common share. Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share is defined to mean non-GAAP net income, less accretion for preferred dividends, divided by fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding assuming the conversion of redeemable convertible preferred stock into common stock as if the conversion happened on January 1, 2009, for the applicable period. Management believes non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per common share provides a meaningful comparison to future results because all redeemable convertible preferred stock was converted to common stock at the closing of our initial public offering.

These non-GAAP financial measures have been reconciled to the related GAAP measures as required under the rules and regulations promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" below.
