    Pearson Falls on Concerns Over Testing Without Consent

    The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that Pearson has been embedding messaging into some versions of its learning software programs to track whether students who had received them performed better than students who hadn’t. Privacy concerns are top of mind for investors following high-profile data breaches, such as the scandal involving Facebook Inc. and Cambridge Analytica, which retained information on millions of the social network’s users without their consent. “This issue is definitely in the spotlight and you don’t want to be a company that’s dragged into it,” said Ian Whittaker, an analyst at Liberum Capital Ltd. who rates the stock a sell.

    Pearson in talks to sell U.S. K12 business, hits 2017 profit target

    Educational publisher Pearson said on Friday it was in talks with potential buyers to sell its K12 school business in the United States, as it reported 2017 adjusted operating profit at the top end of its guidance. The British company is restructuring after issuing a string of profit warnings sparked by the cost of moving to digital from paper textbooks, repeatedly knocking investor confidence and forcing it to cut thousands of jobs. It said on Friday its profit was 576 million pounds, down 9 percent but above its recently upgraded range of 570 million to 575 million pounds, due to a lower tax rate.

    Pearson hit again as weak U.S. demand weighs on education group

    Educational publisher Pearson (PSON.L) expects pressure from its North American business to weigh on 2018 earnings, the former owner of the Financial Times newspaper warned on Wednesday, sending its shares to three-month lows. Pearson, which has struggled since turning its focus to education, said retail partners had turned more cautious when ordering books, forecasting 2017 sales in U.S. higher education course materials down 3 percent on an underlying basis. "Our higher ed courseware business is about 25 percent of Pearson, the other 75 percent of the business has performed well," Chief Executive John Fallon said.

    Education group Pearson has agreed the sale of its Wall Street English (WSE) business to Baring Private Equity Asia and CITIC Capital for around $300 million (225.3 million pounds), although its proceeds from the deal will be just a third of that. Pearson, which has sold several assets to focus on its core education business and cut debt, said that of the $300 million, $50 million would cover tax and net transaction costs while $150 million would be retained in the disposed business. Pearson, which has sold off assets including the Financial Times newspaper and the Economist magazine, had net debt of 1.3 billion pounds at the end of September.
