NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Aspen Group, Inc. (OTCBB:ASPU), a nationally accredited online postsecondary education company, announced today that Chairman and CEO Michael Mathews will present at the LD Micro Summit on Thursday, October 4th at 4:30 PM PDT / 7:30 PM EDT. The summit is an invite-only event that showcases the “best of the best” businesses to a select group of over 600 private and institutional investors.
Mr. Mathews will present a focused overview of the company’s recent achievements and business objectives to an elite group of interested parties and will participate in private one-on-one meetings.
“I’m looking forward to presenting at the Summit and sharing the substantial progress we’ve made at Aspen University this year,” said Mathews. “I will be discussing in detail our business model which is unique to the industry. Our post-graduate degree focus, vertically-integrated marketing approach and low tuition rate structure is translating to a first of its kind virtually ‘cash-based’ for-profit online university, given our 2011 Title IV revenues were only 7% of our total cash receipts.”
The conference is being held at the Luxe Sunset Bel Air Hotel in Los Angeles. For more information about Aspen Group Inc., visit www.aspen.edu; for investor relations inquiries call David Garrity, CFO, at 646-450-1843.
