ORLANDO, Fla., March 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The success axiom for real estate is eternal, that the three most important elements are ‘location, location, location.’ For small and microcap equities, where good ideas are in abundance but proof of concept is rare, the defining characteristic for success may well be “revenue, revenue, revenue.’
And when that revenue is garnered in a clear growth industry, the corporate story may warrant further inspection.
Enter Greenwood Hall (OTCBB:ELRN), an education technology company that helps colleges and universities manage the student journey for the benefit of all involved. For roughly a decade, Greenwood Hall has applied their proprietary approach to simultaneously improve student outcomes while assisting colleges and universities with increasing their revenues and expansion into new marketing channels.
Its successes are founded in a highly specialized offering that assists schools in the planning of superior eLearning degree programs as well as helping schools significantly improve student outcomes. The holistic service offering provided to the colleges includes strategic planning, market research, comprehensive operating infrastructure for recruitment, value-add student services, retention, and counseling for students.
With higher education still only 10% serviced by companies in this vertical, Greenwood Hall has distinguished itself by partnering with leading institutions like The University of Alabama, University of Mississippi, University of Oklahoma, and the University of Central Florida – over 50 educational clients and 70 degree programs in all. In 2015 alone the company grossed over $ 8.1 million and is closing in on profitability.
The revenue pattern and the associations serve to simultaneously validate the Company’s technology and its ability to market it services effectively. But it is staggering to think that 90% of schools have yet to get on this technology train, leaving a vast untapped market for the proven industry leaders.
And in a market full of would-be nascent companies seeking revenue, revenue, revenue, Greenwood Hall’s ability to grow its top line in a true growth market certainly sets it apart from a diverse group of those who will never get this far.
