In this tablet, revenue increased as higher as 20%, it can reflect the movement of income of its main business, it is an important index to analyze growth status and development capability of an enterprise. EBITDA is a profit measure index, it means under the circumstance that operation capital net demand stays unchanged, the operating cash net flow is equivalent to EBITDA. 11% increase explains Navitas will make more use of this amount to pay for interest. Maybe 10% increase in Profit attributable to members can reflect the worthiness of investment at least from view of benefit. From earnings per share, we can regard it as an indicator of a corporation’s profitability. Its calculation is like this: =(Net Income-Dividends on Preferred Stock)/Average Outstanding Shares. It is a profit made by a corporation after dividing its shares outstanding. Made such good achievement, no wonder temporarily stock interest can be reduced by 1%. Final dividend per share is the sum of dividend announced for every ordinary share issued. It is the total dividends paid through a whole year after dividing by the number of outstanding ordinary shares. Before an investment, we should pay great attention to the enterprise evaluation, at the same time, final aim of ore and more enterprises is to maximize the holders value, on this occasion, EVA occured, it stands for Economic value Added), 11% increase can help us have a further understanding about the financial status. Next is operating cash flow，as everyone knows, operating cash flow is of great importance, it can reflect a corporation’s ability if it can generate sufficient enough cash flow to develop, maintain, improve or perfect its operations and projects, or whether it may require additional financing support. Data shows Navitas has enough ability to run business. Return on capital employed is a term, account ratio in finance, valuation and accounting. After considering the amount en enterprise used, it is an effective measure to compare the relevant profitability. Formula of ROCE is Earning before interest and Tax/ capital employed. From whole statistics, though total equity decreases, the overall development trend is rather satisfactory.
Based on Navitas Limited Financial Report, 30 June 2014, the company recorded 20% revenue growth to C$878.2m (FY13: $731.7m)and, in line with prior market guidance, underlying EBITDA growth (excluding goodwill impairment) of 11% to $144.9m (FY13: $130.0m). Among which the revenue distribution of FY13 is Australia accounted for 71%; UK 7%; Europe 6%; Canada 6%; US 4%; ROW 6%. While in FY14, revenue distribution is Australia accounted for 67%; UK 9%; Europe 7%; Canada 6%; US 5%; ROW 6%. In interest: net interest expense of $6.2m was 18% lower than the FY13 charge of $7.6. This was primarily the result of lower debt volumes although this was weighted towards the second half. In Reported NPAT, the University Programs Division incurred a $23.3m goodwill impairment in relation to SIBT. The Division also had a $7.2 goodwill impairment for EduGlobal and AUSI has been reduced to nil. In Balance Sheet, Net debt at 30 June 2014 is $54.5m (30 June 2013: $94.9m). The $40.4m decrease is primarily attributable to record operating cash flows arising from growth in University Programs student recruitment. Net debt is now just 0.38x underlying EBITDA which is considered very conservative. Shareholders’ funds at 30 June 2014 were $211.7m (30 June 2013: $222.7m) an increase of 16% during the year. In Cash Flows, operating cash flows increased by 11% to $140.9m for the year ended 30 June 2014(FY13: $126.8m). This reflects strong growth receiving from customers as a result of emerging new student growth and the Group’s negative working capital model Capex for the year was $25.7m (FY13:$20.3m) reflecting SAE’s relocated sydney, Milan and New York campuses and investment in new systems. In Shareholder Value, Navitas utilizes the economic value added (EVA) framework to assess Shareholder value with EVA being a measure of returns relative to the Group’s weighted average cost of capital for funds employed by the business. EVA for FY14 was $51.8m which represents $5.2m growth in EVA. In addition Navitas was ranked 23rd in the ASX 100 Total Shareholder Return list for FY14 with a Total Shareholder Return of 30.6%. In Dividend, The Directors have declared a fully franked final dividend of 10.1 cents per share (FY13:10.2 cents).This takes the full year dividend to 19.5 cents (FY13: 19.5cents) which is in line with the Groups commitment to hold dividends steady while transitioning to an 80% payout ratio. #p#分页标题#e#
In the light of the University Programs enrollment growth moderates released on April 1st, 2015, we can see Navitas Limited announced a 3% increase in student enrollments for the first semester of 2015(201501) for its University Programs colleges.  This cohort, compared to the prior corresponding period (pcp), represents 19,740 equivalent full time student units (EFTSU). Mr. Jones pointed EFTSU growth in Australian University Programs colleges has continued to moderate with a flat result compared to pcp. Enrollments have been impacted by two key factors: a reduction in enrollments form Nepal and India compared to pcp; and a significant decline in SIBT’s Australian domestic student enrollments. Despite slowing growth rates in Australia and the UK due to self-imposed stricter student assessment criteria, demand for tertiary education remains strong across all key source countries and globally enrollments continue to grow solidly. The number of students choosing to study overseas continues to increase and with colleges in the top education destinations the University Programs Division remains well positioned for future long term sustainable growth. By geographical region, EFTSUs are distributed in 201401 was Australia accounts for 58%; UK 14%; Canada 13%; US 4%; Rest of World 11%. EFTSUs are distributed in 201501 was Australia accounts for 57%; UK 14%; Canada 14%; US 5%; Rest of World 10%. EFCTSU for 201401 variance against the pcp was : Canada up 16%; US up 15%; Australia and New Zealand up 1%; UK up 1% and Asia/Africa down 2%.
