NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
AS OF AND FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED FEBRUARY 28, 2015 AND FEBRUARY 28, 2014
(Dollar amounts, except share and per share amounts, in thousands)

1.  
STATEMENT PRESENTATION AND BASIS OF CONSOLIDATION
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements are presented on a consolidated basis. The accompanying financial statements include the accounts of National American University Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), its subsidiary, Dlorah, Inc. (“Dlorah”), and its divisions, National American University (“NAU” or the “University”), and Fairway Hills.  The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a basis substantially consistent with the Company’s audited financial statements and in accordance with the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial reporting. As permitted under these rules, certain footnotes and other financial information that are normally required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) can be condensed or omitted. The information in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of May 31, 2014, was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements for the Company for the year then ended. Accordingly, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s annual financial statements which were included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2014, filed on August 8, 2014.  Furthermore, the results of operations and cash flows for the nine month periods ended February 28, 2015 and 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year. These financial statements include consideration of subsequent events through issuance.

In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation as prescribed by U.S. GAAP.

Unless the context otherwise requires, the terms “we”, “us”, “our” and the “Company” used throughout this document refer to National American University Holdings, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Dlorah, Inc., which owns and operates National American University, sometimes referred to as “NAU” or the “University”.

Estimates — The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts and disclosures reported in the financial statements. On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates the estimates and assumptions, including those related to bad debts, income taxes and certain accruals. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

2.  
NATURE OF OPERATIONS
 
The Company, through Dlorah, owns and operates National American University. NAU is a regionally accredited, proprietary, multi-campus institution of higher learning, offering associate, bachelors, masters and doctoral degree programs in business-related disciplines, such as accounting, applied management, business administration and information technology, and in healthcare-related disciplines, such as nursing and healthcare management. The Company, through Dlorah’s Fairway Hills real estate division, also manages apartment units and develops and sells multi-family residential real estate in Rapid City, South Dakota.

RECENTLY ADOPTED AND NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standard Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which removes inconsistencies and weaknesses in revenue requirements, provides a more robust framework for addressing revenue issues, improves comparability of revenue recognition practices across entities, provides more useful information to users of the consolidated financial statements through improved disclosure requirements, and simplifies the preparation of the consolidated financial statements by reducing the number of requirements to which an entity must refer.   The ASU outlines five steps to achieve proper revenue recognition: identify the contract with the customer, identify the performance obligations in the contract, determine the transaction price, allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies the performance obligation.  This standard is effective for public entities for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period.  This standard will be effective for the Company’s fiscal year 2018 in the first quarter ending August 31, 2017.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact implementation will have on the consolidated financial statements.
 
In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, that will explicitly require management to assess an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern, and to provide related footnote disclosures in certain circumstances.  This standard will be effective for the Company’s fourth quarter ending May 31, 2017.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-02, Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis, which requires reevaluation of all legal entities under a revised consolidation model.  The standard will specifically affect limited partnerships and similar legal entities, the evaluation of fees paid to a decision maker or a service provider as a variable interest, the effect of fee arrangements and related parties on the primary beneficiary determination, and certain investment funds.  This standard will be effective for the Company’s fiscal year 2017 in the first quarter ending August 31, 2016.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
4.  
CONTRACT FOR DEED
During fiscal year 2013, the Company signed a contract for deed on its former Rapid City campus located at 321 Kansas City Street on March 28, 2013 for $4,000.  The sale did not meet the accounting requirements to be considered consummated because the buyer’s initial and continuing investment was not adequate in accordance with ASC 360-20-40, and the note receivable was not supported by specific evidence of collectability.  As such, at May 31, 2014 the property remained on the condensed consolidated balance sheets and continued to be depreciated because the asset had not met the held for sale criteria, the note receivable was not recorded, and interest income was recognized as received.

On July 11, 2014, the contract for deed was settled.  The Company collected the outstanding proceeds, which included $3,230 principal and $85 of interest that was offset by $59 of lease-back payments and maintenance expenses related to the long-term operating lease.  All remaining liens on the property were released and deemed sold, resulting in a gain of $1,743.  Rent payments will be made directly to the lessor now that the contract for deed is paid in full.

For federal income tax purposes, the sale was recognized in full as of March 28, 2013 and will be brought into income as proceeds are received due to the installment sale treatment.  A portion of the taxable gain was due for the year ended May 31, 2013, and the remaining portion will be payable for the year ended May 31, 2015.

5.  
CAPITAL LEASE OBLIGATION
During the quarter ended November 30, 2013, the Company increased its capital lease obligation by $2,000 to account for tenant improvements.  The Company initially paid for the improvements; however, an agreement was entered into with the lessor to reimburse the Company under the terms of a $2,000 note receivable.  Payments under the note receivable directly offset the monthly payments to the lessor under the capital lease obligation.  On June 30, 2014, the landlord of the property paid the $1,373 remaining balance of the note receivable.

6.  
STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
 
The Company’s outstanding stock-based awards consist mainly of restricted stock awards, restricted stock units and stock options.  As of February 28, 2015, the Company had 886,770 shares available for future grants of stock-based compensation plans.

During the nine months ended February 28, 2015, the Company reversed $0.9 million expense net of tax that was previously recorded in connection with performance based restricted stock awarded during the quarter ended August 31, 2013.  It is the opinion of management that the performance shares will not be issued because the required metrics will not be achieved.

Stock options
 
The Company accounts for stock option-based compensation by estimating the fair value of options granted using a Black-Scholes option valuation model. The Company recognizes the expense for grants of stock options on a straight-line basis in the consolidated statements of operations as operating expense based on their fair value over the requisite service period.
 
For stock options issued in the nine months ended February 28, 2015 and 2014, and for stock options modified during the nine months ended February 28, 2014, the following assumptions were used to determine fair value:
 
   
For the nine months ended February 28,
   
For the nine months ended February 28,
 
Assumptions used:
 
2015

Expected term (in years)
    5.500       5.750  
Expected volatility
    51.40 %     56.10 %
Weighted average risk free interest rate

Weighted average risk free interest rate range     1.52 %     1.90 %
Weighted average expected dividend
    5.79 %     4.91 %
Weighted average expected dividend range     5.79 %     4.91 %
Weighted average fair value
  $ 0.88     $ 1.26  
 
The volatilities are based on historic volatilities from the traded shares of the Company over the past three years.  The Company has analyzed the forfeitures of stock and option grants and has deemed the effect to be immaterial and therefore did not include a forfeiture rate in the expense calculation. The expected term of options granted is the safe harbor period. The risk-free interest rate for periods matching the contractual life of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. Expected dividend is based on the historic dividend of the Company.

EARNINGS PER SHARE
 
Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net income attributable to National American University Holdings, Inc. by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the applicable period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution that could occur assuming vesting, conversion or exercise of all dilutive unexercised options and restricted stock.

COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
From time to time, NAU is a party to various claims, lawsuits or other proceedings relating to the conduct of its business. Although the outcome of litigation cannot be predicted with certainty and some claims, lawsuits or other proceedings may be disposed of unfavorably, management believes, based on facts presently known, that the outcome of such legal proceedings and claims, lawsuits or other proceedings will not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, cash flows or future results of operations.

On November 21, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education notified NAU of its final audit determination with respect to the Title IV compliance audit for the period June 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013.  The final audit determination asserts that NAU improperly disbursed Title IV program funds to students at the Wichita West campus location before it was approved as an additional location for Title IV program participation requirements by the Department in August 2013.  This resulted in a requirement to return approximately $664 in Title IV funds and assessed interest to the Department, as it is deemed a return of previously recorded revenue.  This amount was timely remitted during the three months ended February 28, 2015 and is shown as a direct reduction of academic revenue during the nine months ended February 28, 2015.

Following is a summary of the valuation techniques for assets and liabilities recorded in the consolidated condensed balance sheets at fair value on a recurring basis:

CD’s and money market accounts:  Investments which have closing prices readily available from an active market are used as being representative of fair value.  The Company classifies these investments as level 1.  Market prices for certain CD’s are obtained from quoted prices for similar assets.  The Company classifies these investments as level 2.

U.S. treasury bills and notes:  Closing prices are readily available from active markets and are used as being representative of fair value.  The Company classifies these investments as level 1.

Fair value of financial instruments:  The Company’s financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, CD’s and money market accounts, US treasury bills and notes, receivables, payables, and capital lease payables.  The carrying values approximated fair values for cash and cash equivalents, receivables, and payables because of the short term nature of these instruments.  CD’s and money market accounts, and treasury bills and notes are recorded at fair values as indicated in the preceding disclosures.

SEGMENT REPORTING
 
Operating segments are defined as business areas or lines of an enterprise about which financial information is available and evaluated on a regular basis by the chief operating decision makers, or decision-making groups, in deciding how to allocate capital and other resources to such lines of business.

 
13

 
 
The Company operates two operating and reportable segments: NAU and other. The NAU segment contains the revenues and expenses associated with the University operations and the allocated portion of corporate overhead.  The other segment contains primarily real estate.  These operating segments are divisions of the Company for which separate financial information is available and evaluated regularly by executive management in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. General administrative costs of the Company are allocated to specific divisions of the Company. The following table presents the reportable segment financial information, in thousands:

Background
 
National American University, or NAU, is a regionally accredited, proprietary, multi-campus institution of higher learning offering associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in business-related disciplines, such as accounting, management, business administration and information technology, and in healthcare-related disciplines, such as nursing and healthcare management. Courses are offered through educational sites as well as online. In August 2013, NAU was approved by the Higher Learning Commission to offer an Education Doctorate (Ed.D.) in Community College Leadership, which is offered in Austin, Texas. Operations include 37 locations located in Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota and Texas; distance learning service centers in Indiana and Texas; and distance learning operations and central administration offices in Rapid City, South Dakota.
 
As of February 28, 2015, NAU had enrolled 1,849 students in courses at its physical locations, 6,212 students for its online programs, and 1,534 students at its hybrid learning centers that attended physical campus locations and also took classes online.  NAU supports the instruction of 2,000 additional students at affiliated institutions for which NAU provides online course hosting and technical assistance. NAU provides courseware development, technical support and online class hosting services to various colleges, technical schools and training institutions in the United States and Canada that do not have the capacity to develop and operate their own in-house online curriculum for their students. NAU does not share revenues with these institutions, but rather charges a fee for its services, enabling it to generate additional revenue by leveraging its current online program infrastructure.
 
The real estate operations consist of apartment facilities, condominiums and other real estate holdings in Rapid City, South Dakota. The real estate operations generated less than 1.0% of our revenues for the quarter ended February 28, 2015.
 
Key Financial Results Metrics
 
Revenue. Revenue is derived mostly from NAU’s operations. For the nine months ended February 28, 2015, approximately 91% of our revenue was generated from NAU’s academic revenue, which consists of tuition and fees assessed at the start of each term. The remainder of our revenue comes from NAU’s auxiliary revenue from sources such as NAU’s book sales, and the real estate operations’ rental income and condominium sales. Tuition revenue is reported net of adjustments for refunds and scholarships and is recognized on a daily basis over the length of the term. Upon withdrawal, students generally are refunded tuition based on the uncompleted portion of the term. Auxiliary revenue is recognized as items are sold and are recorded net of any applicable sales tax.
 
Factors affecting net revenue include:

 
●  
the number of students who are enrolled and who remain enrolled in courses throughout the term;

 
●  
the number of credit hours per student;

 
●  
the student’s degree and program mix;

 
●  
changes in tuition rates;

 
●  
the affiliates with which NAU is working as well as the number of students at the affiliates; and

 
●  
the amount of scholarships for which students qualify.

We record unearned tuition for academic services to be provided in future periods. Similarly, we record a tuition receivable for the portion of the tuition that has not been paid. Tuition receivable at the end of any calendar quarter largely represents student tuition due for the prior academic quarter. Based upon past experience and judgment, we establish an allowance for doubtful accounts to recognize those receivables we anticipated will not be paid. Any uncollected account more than six months past due on students who have left NAU is charged against the allowance. Bad debt expenses as a percentage of revenues for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 and 2014 were 3.7% and 2.5%, respectively.
 
We define enrollments for a particular reporting period as the number of students registered in a course on the last day of the reporting period. Enrollments are a function of the number of continuing students registered and the number of new enrollments registered during the specified period. Enrollment numbers are offset by inactive students, graduations and withdrawals occurring during the period. Inactive students for a particular period are students who are not registered in a class and, therefore, are not generating net revenue for that period.
 
We believe the principal factors affecting NAU’s enrollments and net revenue are the number and breadth of the programs being offered; the effectiveness of our marketing, recruiting and retention efforts; the quality of our academic programs and student services; the convenience and flexibility of our online delivery platform; the availability and amount of federal and other funding sources for student financial assistance; and general economic conditions.
 
The following chart is a summary of our student enrollment on February 28, 2015, and February 28, 2014, by degree type and by instructional delivery method.

We experienced a 13.4% decrease in enrollment in the winter term 2015 over the winter term 2014. This decline was across all degree programs and course delivery methods with the exception of the newly created continuing education courses and doctoral program that were not in place during the prior year. We believe our investment to grow our current physical location and expand academic programming and our strategic plan will be critical in returning to the growth and results of operations that we have seen over the recent years.
 
We plan to continue expanding and developing our academic programming focusing on growth at our 37 existing locations and potentially making strategic acquisitions. Enrollments will be subject to applicable regulatory requirements and market conditions. With these efforts, we anticipate our enrollments will once again trend upward. To the extent the economic downturn has caused enrollment growth in the past, our ability to maintain or increase that level of growth will depend on how economic factors are perceived by our target student market in relation to the advantages of pursuing higher education. If current market conditions continue, we believe that enrollment trends will be correlated with the number of programs that are developed, the number of programs that are expanded to other locations, and, potentially, the number of locations and programs added through strategic acquisitions. If market conditions decline or if we are unable to open new physical locations, develop or expand academic programming or make strategic acquisitions, whether as a result of regulatory limitations or other factors, our growth rate will likely decline.
 
Expenses. Expenses consist of cost of educational services, selling, general and administrative, auxiliary expenses, the cost of condominium sales, and the gain/loss on disposition of property and equipment. Cost of educational services expenses contains expenditures attributable to the educational activity of NAU. This expense category includes salaries and benefits of faculty and academic administrators, costs of educational supplies, faculty reference and support material and related academic costs, and facility costs. Selling, general and administrative expenses include the salaries of the learner services positions (and other expenses related to support of students), salaries and benefits of admissions staff, marketing expenditures, salaries of other support and leadership services (including finance, human resources, compliance and other corporate functions), legal expenses, expenses related to expansion and development of academic programs and physical locations, as well as depreciation, bad debt expenses and other related costs associated with student support functions. Auxiliary expenses include expenses for the cost of goods sold, including costs associated with books and clothing. The cost of condominium sales is the expense related to condominiums that are sold during the reporting period. The gain/loss on disposition of property and equipment expense records the remaining book value of assets that are no longer used by us.

Factors affecting comparability
 
Set forth below are selected factors we believe have had, or which we expect to have, a significant effect on the comparability of our recent or future results of operations:
 
Introduction of new programs and specializations. We plan to develop additional degree and diploma programs and specializations over the next several years, subject to applicable regulatory approvals. When introducing new programs and specializations, we invest in curriculum development, support infrastructure and marketing research. Revenues associated with these new programs are dependent upon enrollments, which are lower during the periods of introduction. During this period of introduction and development, the rate of growth in revenues and operating income has been, and may be, adversely affected, in part, due to these factors. Historically, as the new programs and specializations develop, increases in enrollment are realized, cost-effective delivery of instructional and support services are achieved, economies of scale are recognized and more efficient marketing and promotional processes are gained.
 
Stock-based compensation. We expect to incur increased non-cash, stock based compensation expense in connection with existing and future issuances under our 2009 Stock Option and Compensation Plan, the 2013 Restricted Stock Unit Plan or other equity incentive plans.
 
Seasonality. Our operations are generally subject to seasonal trends. While we enroll students throughout the year, summer and winter quarter new enrollments and revenue are generally lower than enrollments and revenue in other quarters due to the traditional custom of summer breaks and the holiday break in December and January. In addition, we generally experience an increase in enrollments in the fall of each year when most students seek to begin their post-secondary education.

Compliance Reviews

From August 18, 2014 to August 22, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education conducted a program review of our administration of Title IV programs for the 2013-2014 award year, as well as our administration of the Clery Act and related regulations and our compliance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and related regulations. The on-site activities of the program review occurred at our Rapid City and Lee’s Summit campuses. The Department issued its preliminary program review report on November 5, 2014, containing findings and requesting additional information with respect to our implementation of requirements for returns of Title IV funds for withdrawn students, measurement of students’ satisfactory academic progress, verification of student eligibility for federal student aid, gainful employment program information disclosures, and enrollment data reporting.  We responded to the Department’s preliminary findings and information requests on March 10, 2015.  We are unable to predict whether the Department will request additional information in connection with this matter or when it will issue its final program review determination.  If the Department’s final program review determination were to include significant findings of non-compliance with Title IV program requirements, it could have a material effect on our business, condition and results of operations.

On November 21, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education notified NAU of its final audit determination with respect to the Title IV compliance audit for the period June 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013.  The final audit determination asserts that NAU improperly disbursed Title IV program funds to students at the Wichita West campus location before it was approved as an additional location for Title IV program participation requirements by the Department in August 2013.   This resulted in a requirement to return approximately $664 in Title IV funds and assessed interest to the Department.  The Company has recorded this amount as a return of previously recorded revenue. This amount was timely remitted during the three months ended February 28, 2015 and is shown as a direct reduction of academic revenue during the nine months ended February 28, 2015.

We have been institutionally accredited since 1985 by the Higher Learning Commission (“HLC”), a regional accrediting commission recognized by the Department. Our accreditation was last reaffirmed in 2008 for the maximum term of 10 years as part of a regularly scheduled reaffirmation process. In May 2010, a three-person team from the HLC visited our central administration offices in Rapid City, South Dakota, in response to the university’s change of control request in connection with the November 2009 merger with Camden Learning Corporation. The change of control request was approved with a visit scheduled in 2014-15. On September 22-26, 2014, we hosted a comprehensive accreditation review team visit.  On January 30, 2015, NAU was notified that our accreditation had been reaffirmed by the Institutional Actions Council of the HLC, effective January 26, 2015, for a period of 10 years.

Department of Education Rulemaking

On October 23, 2014, the Department published final regulations regarding the definition of “adverse credit” for borrowers of certain loans.  On October 20, 2014, the Department also published final regulations addressing topics related to, among other things, the scope of campus crime statistics that Title IV participating institutions are required to distribute to current and prospective students and employees.  These final regulations will be effective on July 1, 2015.

On October 31, 2014, the Department published final regulations to define whether certain educational programs, including all programs offered by NAU, comply with the Higher Education Act’s requirement of preparing students for “gainful employment” in a recognized occupation.  The final gainful regulations require each educational program offered by proprietary institutions to achieve threshold rates in two debt measure categories: an annual debt-to-annual earnings (“DTE”) ratio and an annual debt-to-discretionary income (“DTI”) ratio. The final regulations eliminate the debt measure category related to program cohort default rates that was contained in the proposed regulations.

The various formulas are calculated under complex methodologies and definitions outlined in the final regulations and, in some cases, are based on data that may not be readily accessible to institutions.  The DTE ratio is calculated by comparing (i) the annual loan payment required on the median student loan debt incurred by students receiving Title IV Program funds who completed a particular program and (ii) the higher of the mean or median of those students’ annual earnings approximately two to four years after they graduate, to arrive at a percentage rate.  The DTI rate is calculated by comparing (x) the annual loan payment required on the median student loan debt incurred by students receiving Title IV Program funds who completed a particular program and (y) the higher of the mean or median of those students’ discretionary income approximately two to four years after they graduate to arrive at a percentage rate. The Department receives the earnings data used to calculate these ratios from the Social Security Administration (“SSA”), but institutions do not have access to the SSA earnings information.

The final regulations outline various scenarios under which programs could lose Title IV eligibility for failure to achieve threshold ratios over certain periods of time.  A program must achieve a DTE ratio at or below 8%, or a DTI ratio at or below 20%, to be considered “passing.”  A program with a DTE rate greater than 8% but less than or equal to 12%, or a DTI rate greater than 20% but less than or equal to 30%, is considered “in the zone.”  A program with a DTE rate greater than 12% and a DTI rate greater than 30% is considered “failing.”  A program will cease to be eligible for students to receive Title IV Program funds if its DTE and DTI ratios are failing in two out of any three consecutive award years or if both of those rates are either failing or in the zone for four consecutive award years for which the Department calculates debt-to earnings rates.

The final regulations also require an institution to provide warnings to current and prospective students in programs which may lose Title IV eligibility at the end of an award or fiscal year.  If a program could become ineligible for students to use Title IV Program funds based on its ratios for the next award year, which could occur based on the program’s DTE ratios for a single year, the institution must: (1) deliver a warning to current and prospective students in that program at the prescribed time and by a prescribed method which, among other things, states that students may not be able to use Title IV Program funds to attend or continue to attend the program (“Warning”); and  (2) not enroll, register or enter into a financial commitment with a prospective student in the program, until three business days after (a) a Warning is provided to the prospective student or (b) a subsequent Warning is provided to the prospective student, if more than 30 days have passed since the Warning was first provided to the prospective student.

If a program becomes ineligible for students to use Title IV Program funds, the institution cannot seek to reestablish the eligibility of that program, or establish the eligibility of a similar program, based on having a classification of instructional program (“CIP”) code that has the same first four digits as the CIP code of the ineligible program, until three years following the date on which the program became ineligible.

In addition, among other requirements, the final regulations impose extensive reporting and disclosure obligations on institutions offering gainful employment programs.  The final regulations will be effective on July 1, 2015.

We are in the process of evaluating the effect of the final gainful employment regulations and the other new regulations on us.  While we cannot predict with certainty what impact the final gainful employment regulations will have on our business, compliance with the final regulations could increase our cost of doing business, reduce our enrollments and have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
