Learning Tree International Announces Second Quarter FY 2014 Results

Learning Tree International (NASDAQ: LTRE) announced today its revenues and results of operations for its second quarter of fiscal year 2014, which ended March 28, 2014.

In its second quarter of fiscal year 2014, Learning Tree reported revenues of $25.0 million, loss from operations of $4.3 million, and net loss of $4.6 million or ($0.35) per share. These results compare with revenues of $26.9 million, loss from operations of $3.8 million and net loss of $4.0 million, or ($0.30) per share in its second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

“The harsh winter weather we experienced in North America during our second quarter of fiscal year 2014 adversely impacted our results of operations,” said Learning Tree President, Max Shevitz. “The scope of the impact, however, was less than it might have been, because many of the affected course participants were able to change their plans from attending their courses at our education centers to attending from their homes or offices by using AnyWare™, our proprietary web-based attendance platform.”

Webcast

An investor conference call to discuss second quarter fiscal year 2014 results is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. (ET) May 8, 2014. Interested parties may access the conference call via live webcast at: www.learningtree.com/investor. The webcast will also be available for replay at: www.learningtree.com/investor.
