COLUMBUS, Ohio (February 13, 2024) – McGraw Hill, a leading global education company, today reported financial results for the nine months ended December 31, 2023, with $1.6 billion in year-to-date (YTD) billings and $638 million in Adjusted EBITDA. YTD billings declined 8% compared to the prior year largely due to an anticipated smaller U.S. K-12 adoption market opportunity with billings growth of 5% across the rest of the business.

Statistics, Year-to-Date Billings through Q3 FY24 $1.6B; Digital billings now represent 60% of our total billings.

Fiscal Q3 billings were up 8%.
