COLUMBUS, Ohio – November 29, 2022 – McGraw Hill, a leading global education company, today reported financial results for the first two quarters of fiscal year 2023, ending in September, with 26% growth in billings to $1.5 billion and 29% growth in adjusted EBITDA to $769 million.
"We're excited about the momentum we have generated in the first two quarters of the fiscal year with strong billings growth, increased profitability, and market share gains in key markets as we support educators and learners on their unique learning paths," said Simon Allen, McGraw Hill CEO. "We believe our ongoing, disciplined investments in our digital capabilities continue to serve us well and contributed to a successful back to school season."
As a result of its ongoing digital investment and innovation, the Company launched Sharpen, a direct-to-student study app which complements students' course experience to improve outcomes during the back to school season.
For the year-to-date period, McGraw Hill's K-12 group reported a 49% increase in billings, fueled by market share gains and increased education funding arising from federal fiscal stimulus programs. Digital billings grew 68% to $439 million, driven by supplemental offerings, including the acquisition of Achieve3000, that are increasingly sought by school districts to combat learning loss post-pandemic.
