The overall response to the issue was a low key on primarily two grounds. The first is that the company had entered into owning schools and a college which they have recognised as a folly and are in the process of disposing off. This has affected their returns from the capital employed perspective and is hurting the performance of the company and hence the valuations look extremely stretched. Second the last few companies that are in the sector and are listed have done quite badly and have not generated returns for the investors. This leads to a lack of interest in the sector and explains the poor response to the issue. One hopes that the sector and this company in particular does help restore confidence in education.
