Company to host conference call on April 6, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. ET RAPID CITY, S.D., April 05, 2017 (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 third quarter and nine months ended February 28, 2017. Management Commentary Ronald L. Shape, Ed.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “We continue to see enrollment trending in a more positive direction and were pleased to report a second consecutive period of quarter-over-quarter enrollment growth from fall to winter 2016-17 term, even in spite of typical seasonality due to the holidays. As year-over-year enrollment declines are narrowing with each term, our continuing education, doctoral, and graduate programs continue to see healthy growth. Across our footprint, an increasing number of our campuses have begun turning organic enrollment growth on a year-over-year basis. While this may be a reflection of the markets in which other schools have closed, NAU has also refocused its marketing and redesigned its website to be more accessible and intuitive for prospective and current students. We remain focused on providing our students with the necessary tools and support to help them persist with their academic studies and ultimately achieve their goals of graduating and finding a job within their field of study. In this regard, we introduced NAU Tuition Advantage during the spring 2017 term, a new pricing structure that is simple to understand and enables students to take advantage of more courses at a lower per-credit hour price point. Not only does this make an education at NAU more affordable for our students, but we expect it will have a positive impact on our top and bottom lines in the quarters to come.” Dr. Shape continued, “During the fiscal 2017 third quarter, we enrolled former students of Career Point College in San Antonio and Austin, Texas, as well as other institutions that closed their doors during this challenging time. We also continue to accept enrollments from students in Canada while remaining cognizant of the compliance requirements of various Canadian regulatory authorities. Though we are growing to serve a broader population of students, we have made continued efforts to right-size our operations to be more in line with current enrollment levels while keeping in mind our commitment to academic quality and student support. As a result of several cost-cutting initiatives, we have reduced SG&A expenses by nearly 15% year to date and continue to closely monitor areas where we may be able to find cost savings. With this conservative approach, we believe we are in an increasingly advantageous position to execute on our strategic plan and to move forward with any suitable opportunities we may see within the space.” Total NAU student enrollment for the winter 2016-17 term decreased 4.4% to 7,314 students from 7,649 during the prior winter term. Students enrolled in 62,607 credit hours compared to 66,295 credit hours during the prior winter 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 February 28, 2017, and February 29, 2016, by degree level and by instructional delivery method: The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, operates in two business segments: academics, 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 1.3% of the Company’s revenue for the quarter ended February 28, 2017. 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 March 31, 2017, that will be paid on or about April 7, 2017. Management will discuss these results in a conference call (with accompanying presentation) on Thursday, April 6, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. ET. Accompanying Slide Presentation and Webcast 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.

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/LBITDA 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/LBITDA as a measure of operating performance. However, EBITDA/LBITDA is not a recognized measurement under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and when analyzing its operating performance, investors should use EBITDA/LBITDA 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/LBITDA 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/LBITDA 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/LBITDA 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/LBITDA 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/LBITDA 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.

(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 announced the launch of the University’s College of Military Studies.

Building upon the University’s commitment to exceptional student service, the College of Military Studies brings military students and NAU’s general academic programming together to allow NAU to better serve their specific academic and support needs. Ronald L. Shape, Ed.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “With the launch of the College of Military Studies, we are pleased to expand our dedication to our military student population who face a different set of challenges from our traditional students. Military service is complex, self-sacrificing and demanding. Service members and their families are faced with extended deployments, temporary duty assignments and frequent permanent change of station moves, all while trying to maintain a stable household and obtain an education during their free time. Given these constraints, a traditional education oftentimes is not a viable option for service members. Staff at the College of Military Studies understand and recognize all the complexities and demands placed on service members and their families, as the majority of them are veterans who have served themselves. Our mission is to help military students fully understand their options during the admissions process and to offer a complete support system as they pursue their educational goals in an experience that is specifically designed for their lifestyle.” About National American University Holdings, Inc.

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. (NYSE: BKH) is a growth-oriented, vertically integrated energy company with a tradition of improving life with energy and a vision to be the energy partner of choice.
