RAPID CITY, S.D. - Jan. 30, 2017 - Black Hills Corp. (NYSE: BKH) today announced that Robert A. Myers, senior vice president and chief human resources officer, will retire on April 1. Effective Feb. 1, Jennifer C. Landis, the company's vice president of human resources, was appointed senior vice president and chief human resources officer, reporting to David R. Emery, chairman and CEO. Myers will provide transition support until his retirement to ensure a smooth succession. Myers joined Black Hills in 2008 during a period of transformational growth for the company. Using his more than 36 years of human resources leadership experience with Fortune 500 companies, Myers helped Black Hills build the organizational capacity necessary to successfully complete numerous acquisitions including Aquila in 2008 and SourceGas in 2016. He provided invaluable insights to senior management and the board of directors as Black Hills grew into a regional energy provider, which today serves more than 1.2 million natural gas and electric customers in nearly 800 communities across eight states. "For nearly a decade, we turned to Bob to prepare, develop and evolve our organization and foster a great place to work for our nearly 2,900 employees," said David Emery, chairman and CEO of Black Hills Corp. "Throughout, he was a key organizational architect, ensuring we have the people, tools and focus needed to make the most of our talent, allowing them to continue delivering valued service to our customers. Bob has been a dynamic leader and valued partner to all of us. We will miss him and wish him all the best." In Landis's new role as senior vice president and chief human resources officer, she assumes responsibility for the company's human resource strategies, including organizational development, benefits, workforce planning and employee relations. Last year, Landis was promoted to vice president of human resources, with responsibility for the corporate and field human resources teams and the talent management function. Landis held positions of increasing responsibility throughout her 15 years with Black Hills, beginning her career in information technology and transitioning to human resources in 2008. Landis holds a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Management from National American University and a Master's Degree in Global Human Resources Development from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. "Jennifer has proven herself to be a dynamic, skilled and energetic human resources leader," said Emery. "She played a critical role in the successful integration of our workforce as we've grown, including recent acquisition and integration efforts. We look forward to her building on our success in creating a great place for our employees to work." Black Hills Corporation Black Hills Corp.

Company to host conference call on September 29, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. ET RAPID CITY, S.D., Sept. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National American University Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:NAUH), which through its wholly owned subsidiary operates National American University (“NAU” or the “University”), a regionally accredited, proprietary, multi-campus institution of higher learning, today reported unaudited financial results for its fiscal 2017 first quarter ended August 31, 2016. Ronald L. Shape, Ed.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “We continue to remain focused on our various strategic initiatives for long-term growth and remain confident that our University is well positioned in a challenging environment. We are very pleased with the enrollment growth in our continuing education and workforce development programs, the growth in our graduate program, and the growth in our doctoral program.  However, the enrollment pressures in our undergraduate programs continued to be a factor for the summer term even though we have continued to adapt our operations appropriately while also placing greater emphasis on student engagement.   We are leveraging our operational flexibility and balance sheet to take advantage of opportunities within our market.  We continue to assist students impacted by schools that have closed or have announced that they are discontinuing enrollments.  Over the past year, NAU has worked to accept transfers from other institutions where students have been unable to complete their education.  We have worked closely with these individuals and new enrollees to highlight our academic programs and the commitment we have to our students’ success.  We have grown our continuing education enrollment, and are also expanding outside of the United States through accepting enrollments from students at Canadian institutions with which NAU partners.  We believe that the infrastructure we have built over the past year has begun to gain traction.  Overall, we are excited about the initiatives we continue to work on in FY 2017 and believe these opportunities will serve to strengthen the long-term foundation upon which NAU was built nearly 75 years ago.” Total NAU student enrollment for the summer 2017 term decreased 16.1% to 6,832 students from 8,139 during the prior summer term. Students enrolled in 57,800 credit hours compared to 70,621 credit hours during the prior summer term. The current average age of NAU’s students continues to be in the mid-30s, with those seeking undergraduate degrees remaining the highest portion of NAU’s student population. The following is a summary of student enrollment at August 31, 2016, and August 31, 2015, by degree level and by instructional delivery method: The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, operates in two business segments: the academic segment, which consists of NAU’s undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral education programs and contributes the primary portion of the Company’s revenue; and ownership in and development of multiple apartments and condominium complexes from which it derives sales and rental income. The real estate operations generated approximately 1.0% of the Company’s revenue for the quarter ended August 31, 2016. The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend in the amount of $0.045 per share on all shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding and of record as of the close of business on September 30, 2016, that will be paid on or about October 7, 2016. Management will discuss these results in a conference call (with accompanying presentation) on Thursday, September 29, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. ET. The Company will also have an accompanying slide presentation available in PDF format at the “Investor Relations” section of the NAU website at http://investors.national.edu. The presentation will be made available 30 minutes prior to the conference call.  In addition, the call will be simultaneously webcast over the Internet via the “Investor Relations” section of the NAU website or by clicking on the conference call link: http://national.equisolvewebcast.com/q1-2017.

This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 regarding the Company's business. Statements made in this release, other than those concerning historical financial information, may be considered forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this release and are based on current beliefs and expectations and involve a number of assumptions. These forward-looking statements include outlooks or expectations for earnings, revenue, expenses or other future financial or business performance, strategies or expectations, or the impact of legal or regulatory matters on business, results of operations or financial condition. Specifically, forward-looking statements may include statements relating to the future financial performance of the Company; the ability to continue to receive Title IV funds; the growth of the market for the Company’s services; expansion plans and opportunities; consolidation in the market for the Company’s services generally; and other statements preceded by, followed by or that include the words “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “forecast,” “intend,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “seek,” “target” or similar expressions. These forward-looking statements involve a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by those forward-looking statements. Other factors that could cause the Company’s results to differ materially from those contained in its forward-looking statements are included under, among others, the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, which the Company filed on August 5, 2016, and in its other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Company assumes no obligation to update the information contained in this release. The following table provides a reconciliation of net income attributable to the Company to EBITDA/LBITDA: EBITDA consists of income attributable to the Company, less income from non-controlling interest, plus loss from non-controlling interest, minus interest income, plus interest expense (which is not related to any debt but to the accounting required for the capital lease), plus income taxes, plus depreciation and amortization. The Company uses EBITDA as a measure of operating performance. However, EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and when analyzing its operating performance, investors should use EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, income as determined in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company’s presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies and is therefore limited as a comparative measure. Furthermore, as an analytical tool, EBITDA has additional limitations, including that (a) it is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as tax payments; (b) it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, its working capital needs; and (c) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized often will have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments. To compensate for these limitations, the Company evaluates its profitability by considering the economic effect of the excluded expense items independently as well as in connection with its analysis of cash flows from operations and through the use of other financial measures. The Company believes EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating its operating performance because it is widely used to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to certain non-cash expenses (such as depreciation and amortization) and expenses that are not reflective of its core operating results over time. The Company believes EBITDA presents a meaningful measure of corporate performance exclusive of its capital structure, the method by which assets were acquired and non-cash charges, and provides us with additional useful information to measure its performance on a consistent basis, particularly with respect to changes in performance from period to period.
