    2U Inc Reports Earnings Beat, Strong Demand But Analysts Remain Divided

    Online education stock 2U Inc (TWOU) has reported solid Q1 results with total revenue of $175.5M up 44% year-over-year and beating the Street consensus by $0.18 million. Meanwhile Q1 Non-GAAP EPS of -$0.33 beat by $0.07; while GAAP EPS of -$0.94 fell short of Street forecasts by just $0.01."Our first quarter results clearly show the strength, resilience, and relevance of our business and offerings," said Christopher Paucek, 2U's Co-Founder and CEO. "We believe the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 will continue to accelerate demand among universities and adult learners for high-quality online education."Nonetheless the Street remains divided when it comes to TWOU’s outlook. Speaking for the bulls, Needham analyst Ryan MacDonald reiterated his TWOU buy rating on May 1 and boosted his price target to $30 from $25. 2U Inc benefits from the increased demand for online education, says MacDonald, particularly in the core degree program segment, and is now introducing new solutions (2UOS Plus and Essential) to meet this demand.“While boot camps saw a temporary dip in demand prior to transitioning online, the business appears to be rebounding quickly and should be poised to benefit as well, particularly as unemployment continues to rise” says the analyst. In addition, he notes that the recently completed convertible debt offering provided increased flexibility for 2U to meet this heightened demand. “At a current valuation of 2.2x EV/sales, we find the shares attractive” concludes the Needham analyst.However, Oppenheimer’s Brian Schwartz takes a more cautious approach: “While believing that demand is increasing for online learning technologies, we continue seeing execution risks with 2U's business model in transition and a potential negative impact that COVID-19 could have on higher education enrollment and tuition this fall” he says. What’s more, Schwartz argues that 2U's core DGP (domestic graduate program) business faces multi-faceted challenges that are unlikely to resolve soon- and that acquired businesses are not large enough to make up for DGP's downdraft. Indeed, DGP grew 16% in the first quarter compared to the first quarter of 2019, the slowest since 2U's IPO in 2014. As a result, the analyst is staying on the sidelines without offering a price target. Overall, analysts are split 50/50 on 2U Inc- giving the stock a Moderate Buy analyst consensus. With shares flat year-to-date, the $30 average analyst price target indicates upside potential of 27%.

    2U Inc Down 8% On New Capital Raise; Pulls Financial Guidance

    Shares in online education stock 2U Inc (TWOU) fell sharply in Monday’s trading after the company announced a new capital raise and withdrew financial guidance for fiscal 2020.Specifically, TWOU intends to sell $300 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2025 in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers. It also intends to grant these purchasers a 13-day option to buy a further $45 million aggregate principal amount of notes.“The capital-raise announcement could act as an overhang for the stock as it dilutes shareholders, it likely means 2U’s business-model transition will take place in the public markets, and optionality from a potential private equity takeout is likely off the table” warned Oppenheimer analyst Brian Schwartz following the announcement. Indeed, shares fell 8% on Monday, taking TWOU’s year-to-date loss to 8%.Meanwhile the company withdrew its financial guidance for 2020, citing Covid-19 uncertainty. “Beyond the operational complexities associated with launching and supporting quality online offerings, universities are experiencing budget and cash flow shortfalls related to COVID-19,” CEO Christopher Paucek commented.However, he added that “Long-term, we believe the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 has significantly accelerated the existing secular trends driving adoption of online higher education.”At the same time, TWOU announced positive preliminary financial results for its fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2020. 2U now expects strong 1Q total revenue of $175.5M (+44% year-over-year), $1.1M above the consensus estimate. Meanwhile adjusted EBITDA is estimated at ($4.3M) which is $7.4M above the ($11.7M) consensus estimate, while 1Q GAAP net income of ($60.1M) comes in $2.2M above the ($62.3M) Street forecast.Right now analysts are cautiously optimistic about TWOU’s outlook. The stock shows a Moderate Buy consensus on TipRanks with a $28 average analyst price target (27% upside potential).

    These local companies have bucked the tanking stock market

    The stock market's catastrophic performance over the last few weeks — driven in part by fears of the economic fallout over the novel coronavirus as well as an oil-related price war — means most every publicly traded company has seen its share of share price losses as the Dow Jones Industrial Average has plummeted more than 5,000 points to about 24,267. All of these companies are up over the share prices they debuted with to start 2020, including: 2U Inc. (NASDAQ: TWOU): This Lanham online education company suffered big stock drops in 2019 after announcing a business expansion from revenue-sharing online graduate programs to include short courses and boot camps. K12 Inc.

    Analysts: 2U's new severance agreements are good business — and handy if it sells

    Lanham education company 2U Inc. (NASDAQ: TWOU) has rolled out a new, standardized severance and change in control agreement for its executives and employees — and analysts say that could come in handy if the company ever decides to sell. The new agreements give what the company calls "Tier 1" employees, including its CEO, 1.5 times the total of their base salary and bonus if they resign for good reason or are terminated without cause, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings detailing the agreements. The new agreements — normally common for C-suite executives but less so in such a standardized form for a wider swath of employees — caught the eye of 2U analysts amid speculation that the local company could be better off finding a buyer and going private.
