Laureate Education : Announces Closing of Sale of its Operations in Brazil

05/28/2021 | 05:06pm EDT

BALTIMORE, May 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Laureate Education, Inc. (NASDAQ: LAUR) today announced that it has closed the previously announced sale of its higher education institutions in Brazil to Ânima Holding S.A. (B3: ANIM3).

Ânima is one of the largest private higher education organizations in Brazil, with around 140,000 students in the states of São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Goiás, Santa Catarina, Paraná, Bahia and Sergipe. Ânima's mission is to build a national network of educational institutions committed to quality, innovation and assessment of the learning process and integrated with the regional culture.

The transaction, which closed on the terms previously disclosed, resulted from Laureate's previously announced efforts to explore strategic alternatives for each of its businesses in order to unlock shareholder value.

President and Chief Executive Officer of Laureate, Eilif Serck-Hanssen, said: "We wish the institutions and Ânima well as they continue to deliver quality education with high employability and student satisfaction outcomes."
