Universal Technical Institute Reports Fiscal Year 2022 Second Quarter Results

38 mins read

PHOENIX, May 4, 2022 — Universal Technical Institute, Inc. (NYSE: UTI), a leading provider of transportation and technical training programs, reported financial results for the fiscal 2022 second quarter ended March 31, 2022.

  • Revenue increased 31.4% to $102.1 million in the second quarter compared to the prior year quarter.
  • Net income of $7.4 million, adjusted net income* of $6.4 million, and adjusted EBITDA* of $10.9 million represent significant profitability gains over the prior year period. 
  • Average undergraduate full-time active students increased 13.6% from the prior year quarter, while new student starts decreased 5.4%.
  • Company revised full year fiscal 2022 guidance to reflect positive first half results for revenue and profitability, and lower than anticipated new student starts.
  • Subsequent to quarter’s end, the Company announced it entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Concorde Career Colleges, a leading provider of industry-aligned healthcare education programs.

“I’m pleased to report that we delivered another strong top and bottom-line performance this quarter, driven by growth in student population and higher overall revenue per student, as well as the addition of MIAT College of Technology for a full quarter,” said Jerome Grant, UTI’s Chief Executive Officer. “We made good progress this quarter on the integration of MIAT, positioning the Company to begin introducing programs such as aviation, robotics and renewable energy across UTI campuses beginning in fiscal 2023.  Additionally, our two new campuses in Austin, Texas and Miramar, Florida are progressing well and we expect them to open in the third and fourth quarters, respectively.” 

Grant continued, “I’m also excited about the announcement we made yesterday regarding the agreement to acquire Concorde Career Colleges, which represents a significant next step in the continued execution of our growth and diversification strategy. The addition of Concorde will broaden the Company’s family of education brands into the sizeable and growing healthcare field.  As we move forward with this strategic action and others in the future, our constant guiding principle will be our ability to have extraordinary outcomes in terms of student performance and employment while focusing in areas that have significant demand in the workforce. Our growth and diversification strategy is focused on offering a broader array of high-quality, in-demand workforce solutions which both prepare students for a variety of careers in fast-growing fields and help close the country’s skills gap by leveraging key industry partnerships.”

Financial Results for the Three-Month Period Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to 2021

  • Average undergraduate full-time active students increased 13.6% driven by strong new student starts throughout fiscal 2021 and the addition of MIAT. New student starts decreased 5.4% in the period, which reflects the impacts of the Omicron variant.
  • Revenues increased 31.4% to $102.1 million compared to $77.7 million primarily 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 rose by 24.4% to $98.7 million, compared to $79.4 million.  The increase was primarily due to the incremental cost of delivery associated with growth in the average student population, the inclusion of MIAT and ongoing investments in support of our growth and diversification strategy. 
  • Operating income was $3.4 million, compared to an operating loss of $1.7 million, driven by revenue growth and operating leverage across our business model.
  • Net income was $7.4 million and includes an income tax benefit from the reversal of a majority of our valuation allowance during the quarter, compared to a net loss of $1.5 million. Adjusted net income* was $6.4 million compared to adjusted net loss* of $0.8 million
  • Basic and diluted income (loss) per share (EPS) were $0.11 compared to $(0.09).    
  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $10.9 million, compared to $2.8 million.

“Our year-to-date results have met or exceeded our expectations on most metrics through the first half of fiscal 2022, thus giving us the confidence to raise the lower end of our guidance range on our key financial metrics. This is despite the modest impact we saw during the quarter from the Omicron variant, which was mostly concentrated on new student starts,” said UTI Chief Financial Officer, Troy Anderson. “The second quarter lower starts, along with the later than originally planned opening of the Austin campus, have resulted in us lowering our start growth guidance for the fiscal year 2022. That said, we still expect to achieve double-digit start growth in the second half of the year, and strong overall growth for the full fiscal year.”

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

At March 31, 2022, UTI’s total available liquidity was $61.5 million, which reflects the previously disclosed $28.4 million net cash outflow in February 2022 associated with our acquisition of the entity that owns our Lisle, Illinois campus.  After the quarter end, in April 2022 the Company completed the financing of the Lisle campus purchase with net proceeds of approximately $20 million after certain fees and the retirement of the existing debt that transferred with the acquired entity.   Additionally, consistent with UTI’s growth and diversification strategy, year-to-date capital expenditures excluding the Lisle campus purchase were $24.8 million, driven primarily by the Austin, TX and Miramar, FL new campus build-outs, new welding programs, and the campus optimization initiatives, all of which are expected to be completed during fiscal 2022.

Financial Results for the Six-Month Period Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to 2021


  • Average undergraduate full-time active students increased 14.9% driven by strong new student starts throughout fiscal 2021 and the addition of MIAT. New student starts decreased 2.0% in the period and reflects impacts from the Omicron variant primarily during the second quarter.
  • Revenues increased 34.7% to $207.2 million compared to $153.8 million.  Similar to the three months ended, the increase is primarily due to higher average undergraduate full-time active students and higher revenue earned per student, as well as the addition of MIAT. Revenue per student in the prior year period was negatively impacted by the pace in which students were progressing through their programs due to the continuing effects of the pandemic. 
  • Operating expenses increased by 22.9% to $190.2 million, compared to $154.7 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 and ongoing investments in support of our growth and diversification strategy.
  • Operating income was $17.0 million, compared to an operating loss of $0.9 million.
  • Net income was $22.2 million and includes an income tax benefit from the reversal of a majority of our valuation allowance during the current year, compared to a net loss of $0.5 million.  Adjusted net income* was $21.8 million, compared to $0.3 million
  • Basic and diluted EPS were $0.36, compared to $(0.09).    
  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $30.9 million, compared to $7.1 million.
  • Operating cash flow provided $10.4 million, compared to $17.5 million.
  • Adjusted free cash flow* used cash of $0.2 million, compared to providing cash of $10.4 million.

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

UTI defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and adjusted for 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, 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 2022 guidance for new student start growth (decline), revenue growth, net income, 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 MIAT 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, the Credit Agreement with Valley National Bancorp, 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.
