“We remain comfortable with our estimates for revenues, adjusted EBITDA and EPS, all of which are approximately in line with Street expectations. Our projections assume Y/Y growth across all segments save for Sandy, which faces a difficult compare for both training and publication revenues. In Learning Solutions (LS), we model mid-single digit Y/Y growth driven by the initial ramp of key wins in Europe with a large pharmaceutical customer and more recently, ABB. We anticipate a return to positive growth in Professional & Technical Services (PTS) on increasing contribution from oil and gas customers.”,” B. Riley’s analyst commented.
