Private Equity Investing in For-Profit Education Companies

New York Athletic Club

January 2015
7:30AM - 4:30PM Wednesday
In today’s for-profit education marketplace, investors who truly understand the space, and what drives value, are finding that disruption can bring dividends. Investors are encouraging education providers to restructure debt, sell and lease back real estate, implement efficiency improvements …even improve relationships with regulators who worry about the cost-benefit gap of the schools’ curriculums. In addition, investors are increasingly focusing on the service provider companies that are targeting for-profit education -- from marketing and enrollment services to course instruction and fundraising. In short, after a rough patch, the future of the for-profit marketplace is brightening, and this Capital Roundtable conference will highlight the ways many middle-market investors are doing well.
