Second

Quarter 2021
Financial
Results


Graphic

Florianopolis, Brazil, August 25, 2021 – Vitru Limited, or Vitru (Nasdaq: VTRU), the leading pure digital education group in the post-secondary digital education market in Brazil, today reported financial and operating results for the three-month and six-month period ended June 30, 2021 (second quarter 2021 or 2Q21 and first half 2021 or 1H21). Financial results are expressed in Brazilian Reais and are presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Vitru operates its hubs under the UNIASSELVI brand with almost 364 thousand students in digital education undergraduate and graduate courses, more than 3.3 thousand tutors, and 795 hubs distributed throughout Brazil.

Vitru announces the Definitive Agreement for Business Combination with Unicesumar to accelerate its sustainable organic growth

To our shareholders

Since our IPO, we have selectively pursued dozens of M&A opportunities, looking at the strategic rationale and the value-creation potential of each of them. From the beginning, it was clear to us that we did not want to grow for the sake of growing, but instead we sought companies that shared our values and beliefs in the power of high-quality education in the lives of our students.  We believe we have found this partner in Unicesumar. This agreement is a transformational deal for us, consolidating Vitru (through Uniasselvi and now Unicesumar) as what we believe to be a leading and fast-growing digital education player in Brazil. It also allows us to start offering medical education, which we believe is a resilient and highly profitable segment.  We are very grateful and honored by the trust placed in us by the founding families that created Unicesumar 30 years ago and are committed to carry on their legacy and maintain its culture going forward. The definitive agreement is subject to customary conditions precedents, including approval by the Brazilian antitrust authorities.

Regarding Uniasselvi, first semester results reaffirmed our sustainable growth and value creation throughout key academic, operational, and quality indicators. As of June 30, 2021, Vitru reached 370.8 thousand students enrolled in the courses provided, of which 98.1% of them enrolled in digital education. The virtuous evolution of the student’s base is driven by another strong intake process, which grew 32% in the first semester of 2021 when compared to the first semester of 2020.  

We also kept our capability to quickly expand our geographical presence all over Brazil. We reached a total of 795 hubs in June 2021, 187 of which were opened in the last 12 months. It is important to highlight that most of them are still in maturation, which we believe demonstrates our ability to keep growing. It also demonstrates our commitment to fulfill our mission: to democratize access to education in Brazil, so more and more students can benefit from our disruptive hybrid student-centric model that combines high quality with an affordable price.      

We are very proud of another achievement related to academic development. Uniasselvi, our higher education institution and commercial brand in Brazil, received the highest grade—concept 5 out of 5—for the potential offering of up to 22,200 annual seats of digital undergraduate course in law. We are optimistically waiting for our final authorization from MEC, which will represent a significant opportunity to expand the digital education addressable market in Brazil, as nowadays this course is only offered through the traditional on-campus model, and represents 18% of the on-campus private students base in Brazil (744 thousand students).

In addition, we are proud to have received authorization to offer a digital undergraduate course in nursing, after the Brazilian Secretariat for Regulation and Supervision of Higher Education (Secretaria de Regulação

2Q21 Results

Graphic

e Supervisão do Ensino Superior) issued Ordinance number 802 on August 5, 2021, related to the completion of the legal and regulatory procedures of MEC.

Our recently launched Flex Courses concept was consolidated during this quarter. Flex Courses are based on a model to offer our class- and tutor-centric academic approach in synchronous, virtual meetings to students who would not be served by our traditional hybrid model, and was designed for small cities and/or courses with low demand in a given city. As of June 30, 2021, 130 undergraduate courses are available in this modality.

Finally, Uniasselvi has launched a program of Diversity and Inclusion called SOMA UNIASSELVI, which promotes activities around issues such as freedom, expression and equality, stigmatization of individuals and social groups, among others. As an example of our belief in the transforming power through sports and education, Uniasselvi became a new official sponsor of the Brazilian women’s national soccer competition, Brasileirão Feminino A1 2021. 

As we look forward, we will remain focused on improving operational and financial metrics, as well as on preparing the smooth integration with Unicesumar, which we can only execute once we receive the authorization of the Brazilian antitrust authorities. At the same time, we are more confident than ever about the positive perspectives for the digital education segment, given that the changes in consumption and studying habits—brought by the COVID-19 pandemic—are happening faster than expected. We are prepared to keep delivering our mission and positively affecting the lives of hundreds of thousands of Brazilians.

Businesses Seasonality

Vitru’s digital education undergraduate courses are structured around separate monthly modules. This enables students to enroll in digital education courses at any time during a semester. Despite this flexibility, Vitru generally experiences a higher number of enrollments in the first semester of each year than in the second semester of each year, due to the high school calendar in Brazil, where classes conclude in December. New enrollments in Digital Education Undergraduate courses are concentrated in the first and third quarters (beginning of academic semesters in Brazil).

The seasonality in enrollments has a direct effect on revenues. In addition, Vitru generally records higher revenue in the second and fourth quarters of each year reflecting the effect of the dynamics of the intake cycle.

Additionally, a significant portion of expenses are also seasonal. For example, due to the nature of the intake cycle, a relevant amount of selling and marketing expenses are incurred in connection with the first semester intake, particularly in the first quarter of each year.

Below is the breakdown of the consolidated Adjusted EBITDA and the intake of the Digital Education Undergraduate segment over the past four quarters of the financial year ended on December 31, 2020, and the first and second quarters of 2021:

OPERATING RESULTS

Students base and hubs

The number of enrolled students is a relevant operational metric for Vitru. As of June 30, 2021, Vitru had 370.8 thousand students enrolled in the courses provided, an increase of 28.8% over the same period of the prior year.

Another relevant metric is the percentage of digital education students to total enrolled students, which we believe best demonstrates the focus on digital education (comprising both undergraduate courses and continuing education courses) and its relevance to the services offered. As of June 30, 2021, students enrolled in digital education represented 98.1% of the total number of enrolled students, up 1.2 p.p. from the same period of the prior year.

It is important to highlight that the number of hubs is one of the drivers that enable the Company to increase its enrolled students base. A relevant portion of Vitru’s growth is driven by the expansion and subsequent maturation of the hubs.

Vitru has substantially expanded its operations and geographic presence throughout Brazil with the opening of new hubs in the last few years. In fact, 89.6% of the current 795 hubs are still ramping up, representing a substantial growth avenue: the current maturation ratio of such hubs is only 34.0%. The Company estimates that a typical hub reaches its full capacity in terms of the number of students (and hence is deemed to be mature) after seven or eight years of operations.

Graphic

The compelling strength and sustainability of Vitru’s growth, and the maturation of its hubs can be demonstrated by the total amount charged as courses tuition from digital education undergraduate students (which is the sum of gross revenue and the hub partners’ portion of the tuition less other academic revenue and cancellations).

DE Undergraduate tuitions for 2Q21 amounted to R$219.6 million, 31.4% higher than the R$167.2 million recorded in 2Q20. For 1H21, DE Undergraduate tuitions totaled R$401.5 million, 21.9% higher than the R$329.4 million in the same period for the previous year. Such growth rates reflect mostly the organic increase in the number of students enrolled in digital education undergraduate courses.

The average monthly ticket of Digital Education Undergraduate courses decreased 3.8%, from R$284.3 in 1H20 to R$273.6 in 1H21. This reduction of the average ticket in DE Undergraduate is due to a more back-ended intaking profile of students during the 2021.1 intake cycle compared to the profile observed in 2020.1, mainly as a result of the delay of the ENEM national exam (an important driver of enrollments in the Brazilian higher education sector), which resulted in lower tuitions per student.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Revenue

Graphic

Consolidated Net Revenue in 2Q21 was R$166.5 million, up 30.1% from 2Q20. For 1H21, Consolidated Net Revenue was R$317.2 million, an increase of 23.6% over the prior year. This organic growth was driven by the increase in the number of enrolled students in the Digital Education undergraduate segment.

Net Revenue Breakdown (%)

Graphic

Net Revenue from digital education undergraduate courses in 2Q21 was R$139.5 million, up 35.3% from R$103.1 million in 2Q20, solely on an organic basis. For 1H21, Net Revenue from digital education undergraduate courses was R$259.9 million, up 27.6% from R$203.7 million in the previous year. This achievement was primarily driven by the 30.2% increase in the student base, as a result of the aforementioned expansion and maturation in operational hubs.

Net Revenue from continuing education courses for 2Q21 was R$14.2 million, up 21.4% from R$11.7 million in 2Q20. Net Revenue for 1H21 was R$31.2 million, up 46.5% from R$21.3 million in 1H20. The intake process of graduate courses was positively affected by the new digital marketing approach implemented in late 2020, with strong results in 1Q21.

2Q21 Results

Graphic

Net Revenue from on-campus undergraduate courses in 2Q21 amounted to R$12.8 million, a decrease of 3.0% from R$13.2 million in 2Q20. Net Revenue for 1H21 was R$26.1 million, down 17.4% from R$31.6 million in 1H20. The decrease was primarily attributable to the ongoing shift to digital education as a whole, as a result of the increased number and attractiveness of digital education undergraduate courses. The decline in the contribution of the on-campus segment in our numbers is in line with the Company’s expectation and strategic vision for the overall Higher Education business in Brazil.

Cost of Services

Cost of services in 2Q21 amounted to R$59.6 million, 22.1% higher than the R$48.8 million reported in 2Q20. Cost of services for 1H21 was R$112.6 million, 6.2% higher than the R$106.0 million in 1H20. Cost of services includes certain restructuring costs as well as depreciation and amortization expenses, which were R$9.5 million in 2Q21 and R$8.3 million in 2Q20, and R$23.2 million in 1H21 and R$18.5 million in 1H20.

Cost of services as reported in the Adjusted EBITDA calculation was R$50.1 million in 2Q21 and R$40.5 million in 2Q20, representing a year-over-year increase of 23.7%, and a decrease of 1.5 p.p. as a percentage of Net Revenue in each period. This decrease in the percentage of net revenue was primarily attributable to: (i) optimizations in personnel costs, including as a result of the full implementation in 1Q21 of the Flex Course academic model that was launched (as a pilot project) in the second semester of 2020; and (ii) overall gains of scale as we grow further the business and dilute fixed costs. Besides, for the sake of clarification, it is important to highlight we registered a R$3.0 million provision in 1Q20 for academic material (books) that were supposed to be sent to students and such process was stopped by the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil. Then, once the books were not sent, such provision was reverted later on 2Q20.

In 1H21, Gross Margin was 64.5%, 5.8 p.p. higher than the 58.7% reported in 1H20.

General and Administrative (G&A) expenses in 2Q21 were R$20.2 million, an increase of 114.9%, compared to 2Q20. In 1H21 G&A expenses were R$42.0 million, an increase of 72.1%, compared to 1H20. Second quarter and the first half of 2021 were negatively impacted mostly by expenses related to our share-based compensation plan and one-time restructuring and M&A expenses.

G&A expenses as reported in the Adjusted EBITDA calculation were R$10.9 million in 2Q21 and R$8.9 million in 2Q20, representing an increase of 22.5%. In 1H21 it was R$23.9 million and R$19.6 million in 1H20, an increase of 21.9%, which is attributable to slight growth in personnel expenses given our new reality as a listed company. Regarding Adjusted G&A expenses as a percentage of Net Revenue it was 6.5% in 2Q21, a decrease of 0.5 p.p. compared to 7.0% in 2Q20, and 7.5% in 1H21, a decrease of 0.1 p.p. compared to 7.6% in 1H20.

Net impairment losses on financial assets (PDA)

Net impairment losses on financial assets represent the provisions for doubtful accounts. In 2020, the Company implemented a stricter policy for the calculation of the PDA, which has been in place since then.

In 2Q21, the PDA effect was R$27.9 million, which represents 16.8% of the net revenue in the period. In 2Q20, the PDA was R$18.3 million, equivalent to 14.3% of the net revenue. The year-over-year increase in the annual rate is mainly explained by changes in the mix of students (given the strong intake of newcomers in the 2H20) as well as the current economic and sanitary crisis.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA in 2Q21 totaled R$56.3 million, up 21.7% from R$46.3 million in 2Q20. Adjusted EBITDA Margin was 33.8%, a 2.3 p.p. decrease compared to 36.1% for 2Q20. This decrease in the Adjusted EBITDA Margin in the quarter was mainly due to an increase in online advertising in 2Q21 compared to 2Q20 (given the more back-ended intake profile in the first semester of 2021) and the R$3.0 million reversion in the provision for academic material (books) in 2Q20, as stated earlier.

Graphic

Notes: (i) all figures in this graph include the adjustments applied in our definition of Adjusted EBITDA; (ii) PDA is defined as “Net impairment losses on financial and contract assets” in our Financials.

Adjusted EBITDA in 1H21 totaled R$96.5 million, up 28.6% from R$75.1 million in 1H21. Adjusted EBITDA Margin was 30.4%, a 1.1 p.p. increase compared to 29.3% for 1H20. This increase in the Adjusted EBITDA Margin in 1H21 was primarily attributable to the improvement of the Gross Margin.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted Net Income in 2Q21 was R$23.6 million, down 46.2% from the same period of the prior year. This year-on-year decrease is due to the recognition of deferred taxes assets and the increase in financial expenses in 2Q21 (R$9.5 million increase compared to the same period of the previous year). The main reason for the increase in expenses in this line is related to the index used to update most of our debt (IPCA): in 2Q20 the index was negative, due to the effects of the pandemic, whilst in this quarter the IPCA had a total increase of 1.67%.

Adjusted Net Income in 1H21 was R$39.6 million, down 43.0% from the same period of the prior year. This year-on-year decrease is due to the recognition of deferred taxes assets, in 1Q20, for an amount of R$17.9 million.

Cash Flow and Cash Conversion from Operations

Adjusted Cash Flow from Operations amounted to R$37.1 million, an increase of 15.3% compared to the number presented in 2Q20. Regarding the half-year figures, there was an increase of 32.7% in Adjusted Cash Flow from Operations: from R$57.5 million in 1H20 to R$76.3 million in 1H21. These increases were primarily attributable to a continued discipline in receivables management.

(1)The Company calculates Adjusted Cash Flow Conversion from Operations as adjusted cash flow from operations (which we calculate as cash from operations plus income tax paid) divided by Adjusted EBITDA (as defined above but without taking non-recurring expenses into consideration). Adjusted Cash Flow Conversion from Operations is a non-GAAP measure. The calculation of Adjusted Cash Flow Conversion from Operations may be different from the calculation used by other companies, including competitors in the industry, and therefore, the Company’s measures may not be comparable to those of other companies. For further information see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”.

CAPEX

Capital Expenditures in 1H21 totaled R$24.7 million, 31.5% lower than the amount of R$36.1 million in 1H20. This decrease was mainly due to lower investments in property and equipment, given the lower amount of owned hubs opened in 1H21 vs 1H20.

ABOUT VITRU (NASDAQ: VTRU)

VITRU is the leading pure digital education postsecondary group in Brazil based on the number of enrolled undergraduate students as of December 31, 2019 according to the Brazilian Ministry of Education (Ministério da Educação), or the MEC in October 2020, the latest data available.

Vitru is listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange in the United States (ticker symbol: VTRU) since September 18, 2020, and its mission is to democratize access to education in Brazil through a digital ecosystem and empower every student to create their own successful story.

Through its subsidiaries, Vitru provides a complete pedagogical ecosystem focused on a hybrid distance learning experience for undergraduate and continuing education students. All the academic content is delivered in multiple formats (videos, eBooks, podcasts and html text, among others) through its proprietary Virtual Learning Environment, or VLE. The pedagogical model also incorporates in-person weekly meetings hosted by dedicated tutors who are mostly local working professionals in the subject area they teach. The Company believes that this unique tutor-centric learning experience sets it apart, creating a stronger sense of community and belonging and contributing to higher engagement and retention rates of its student base.

The Company’s results are based on three operating segments:

Digital education undergraduate courses. What differentiates Vitru’s digital education model is its hybrid methodology, which consists of weekly in-person meetings with on-site tutors, alongside the benefit of the virtual learning environment, where students are able to study where and when they prefer. The Company’s portfolio of courses is composed mainly of pedagogy, business administration, accounting, physical education, vocational, engineering and health-related courses. This is Vitru’s largest business unit, accounting for approximately 82% of net revenue of 1H21.
Continuing education courses. Vitru offers continuing education and graduate courses predominantly in pedagogy, finance and business, but also in other subjects such as law, engineering, IT and health-related courses. Courses are offered in three different versions, consisting of (i) hybrid model, (ii) 100% online, and (iii) on-campus.
On-campus undergraduate courses. Vitru has 14 campuses that offer traditional on-campus undergraduate courses, including engineering, law and health-related courses.

Key Information—D. Risk Factors” in the most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F of the Company. These documents are available on the SEC Filings section of the investor relations section of our website at investors.vitru.com.br.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement the Company’s consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board—IASB, VITRU uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Cash Flow Conversion from Operations information for the convenience of the investment community, which are non-GAAP financial measures. A non-GAAP financial measure is generally defined as one that purports to measure financial performance but excludes or includes amounts that would not be so adjusted in the most comparable GAAP measure.

VITRU calculates Adjusted EBITDA as the net income (loss) for the period plus:

deferred and current income tax, which is calculated based on income, adjusted based on certain additions and exclusions provided for in applicable legislation. The income taxes in Brazil consist of corporate income tax (Imposto de Renda Pessoa Jurídica), or IRPJ, CSLL, which are social contribution taxes;
financial results, which consists of interest expenses less interest income;
depreciation and amortization;

interest on tuition fees paid in arrears, which refers to interest received from students on late payments of monthly tuition fees and which is added back;
impairment of non-current assets, which consists of impairment charges associated with on-campus undergraduate courses segment, given the deterioration in the prospects of this business;
share-based compensation plan, which consists of non-cash expenses related to the grant of share-based compensation, as well as fair value adjustments for share-based compensation expenses classified as a liability in the consolidated financial statements;
other income (expenses), net, which consists of other expenses such as contractual indemnities and deductible donations among others;
M&A, pre-offering expenses and restructuring expenses, which consists of adjustments that Company believes are appropriate to provide additional information to investors about certain material non-recurring items. Such M&A, pre-offering expenses and restructuring expenses comprise: mergers and acquisitions, or M&A, and pre-offering expenses, which are expenses related to mergers, acquisitions and divestments (including due diligence, transaction and integration costs), as well as the expenses related to the preparation of offerings; and restructuring expenses, which refers to expenses related to employee severance costs in connection with organizational and academic restructurings.

VITRU calculates Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss)for the period plus:

share-based compensation plan, as defined above;
M&A, pre-offering expenses and restructuring expenses, as defined above;
impairment of non-current assets, as defined above;
amortization of intangible assets recognized as a result of business combinations, which refers to the amortization of the following intangible assets from business combinations: software, trademark, distance learning operation licenses, non-compete agreements, customer relationship and teaching-learning material. For more information, see notes to the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission;
interest accrued at the original effective interest rate (excluding restatement as a result of inflation) on the accounts payable from the acquisition of subsidiaries, related to the acquisition of our operating units from Kroton in 2016 and 2017. See notes to the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission; and
corresponding tax effects on adjustments, which represents the tax effect of pre-tax items excluded from adjusted net income (loss). The tax effect of pre-tax items excluded from adjusted net income (loss) is computed using the statutory rate related to the jurisdiction that was affected by the adjustment after taking into account the effect of permanent differences and valuation allowances.

VITRU calculates Adjusted Cash Flow Conversion from Operations as adjusted cash flow from operations (which is calculated as cash from operations plus income tax paid) divided by Adjusted EBITDA (as defined above but without taking M&A, pre-offering expenses and restructuring expenses into consideration).

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Cash Flow Conversion from Operations are the key performance indicators used by Vitru to measure the financial performance of its core operations and Vitru believes that these measures facilitate period-to-period comparisons on a consistent basis. As a result, its management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investment community. These summarized, non-audited or non-GAAP financial measures are in addition to, and not a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Additionally, the calculations of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Cash Flow Conversion from Operations may be different from the calculations used by other companies, including competitors in the education services industry, and therefore, Vitru’s measures may not be comparable to those of other companies. For a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Cash Flow Conversion from Operations to the most directly comparable IFRS measure, see the tables in the end of this document.

Vitru Limited

Notes to the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

June 30, 2021 and 2020.

(In thousands of Brazilian Reais, except as otherwise indicated)

1.Corporate information

Vitru Limited (“Vitru”) and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) is a holding company incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands on March 05, 2020 and whose shares are publicly traded on the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations Payments exchange (NASDAQ) under the ticker symbol “VTRU”.

Vitru is a holding company jointly controlled by Vinci Partners, through the investments funds “Vinci Capital Partners II FIP Multiestratégia”, “Agresti Investments LLC”, “Botticelli Investments LLC”, Raffaello Investments LLC”, and the Carlyle Group, through the investment funds “Mundi Holdings I LLC” and “Mundi Holdings II LLC”

The Company is principally engaged in providing educational services in Brazil, mainly undergraduate and continuing education courses, presentially through its eight campuses in two states, or via distance learning, through 795 (December 31, 2020 – 709) learning centers (“hubs”) across the country.

These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements were authorized for issue by the Board of Directors on August 20th, 2021.

1.1.

Significant events during the period.

a)

Operating events

Seasonality:

The distance learning undergraduate courses are structured around separate monthly modules. This enables students to enroll in distance learning courses at any time during a semester. Despite this flexibility, generally a higher number of enrollments in distance learning courses occurs in the first and third quarters of each year. These periods coincide with the beginning of academic semesters in Brazil. Furthermore, there is a higher number of enrollments at the beginning of the first semester of each year than at the beginning of the second semester of each year. In order to attract and encourage potential new students to enroll in undergraduate courses later in the semester, the Group often offers discounts, generally equivalent to the number of months that have passed in the semester. As a result, given revenue from semiannual contracts are recorded over the time in a semester, revenue is generally higher in the second and fourth quarters of each year, as additional students enroll in later in the semester. Revenue is also higher later in the semester due to lower dropout rates during that same period.

Leases (Note 8):

With the opening of new hubs according to the Group’s expansion strategy, new lease contracts were signed for the Group’s own hubs during the six months ended June 30, 2021. During this period, the Group also concluded renegotiation of terms of a few lease contracts for the extension of lease period at reduced prices. Such new and amended lease contracts resulted in an increment of R$ 8,673 to both right-of-use assets and lease liabilities.

Accounts payable from acquisition of subsidiaries (Note 12):

The company settled part of the debt that was under discussion with its creditors regarding the December 2019 installment. The amount settled was R$ 10.557.

b)

Coronavirus pandemic

The Company is closely monitoring the situation of the 2019 novel coronavirus, or Covid-19, and taking the necessary measures for the safety and well-being of employees, students, associates and partners. The global impact of the outbreak has been rapidly evolving, and the outbreak presents material uncertainty and risk with respect to the Company´s future performance and financial results. In particular and in the interest of public health and safety, state and local governments in Brazil have required mandatory school closures, which has resulted in the closure of on-campus learning facilities and hubs.

In response to the outbreak, the Company has efficiently implemented several measures aimed at safeguarding the health of employees, students and hub partners and the stability of operations, including: (1) creating a crisis management committee and a financial committee to discuss the action plan for the Company to address the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic; (2) temporarily replacing in-person weekly meetings at the hubs with online meetings between students and tutors across all units, as a result of which since March 30, 2020 all students have had real-time meetings with their tutors; (3) training teachers and tutors to support students in this new format; (4) remote support to deliver high-quality content to students and maintain high levels of engagement and a superior learning experience; (5) making no changes to the course schedule or curriculum; (6) putting in place remote emotional and psychological support to students and employees, provided by the Company´s psychology department; and (7) making home office available for all the employees.

Vitru Limited

Notes to the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

June 30, 2021 and 2020.

(In thousands of Brazilian Reais, except as otherwise indicated)

As of June 30, 2021, there has been no material impact on the Company’s operations, as most of the Company’s services are already delivered remotely (Distance learning undergraduate courses and most of continuing education courses) or capable of being delivered remotely (some of Continuing education courses and On-campus undergraduate courses). In addition, based on preliminary information available until the approval of these unaudited interim consolidated financial statements:

·

There was no relevant impact on net revenue for the six months period ended June 30, 2021, which presented a growth 24% when compared to prior year. Student defaults have remained within the expected levels and the engagement of students, compared to 2020, deteriorated very slightly.

·

The provision for expected credit losses increased as result of the methodology used which captures the increase in historical losses with receivables during 2020, which, as a consequence, already reflects the incurred impacts of Covid-19 pandemic.

·

The Company assessed the existence of potential impairment indicators and the possible impacts on the key assumptions and projections caused by the pandemic on the recoverability of long-lived assets (impairment tests) and concluded that no additional provision for impairment of long-lived assets needed to be recorded in the financial statements.

·

The Company has obtained rent concessions on lease contracts due to the temporary suspension of classes in the on-campus learning facilities and hubs caused by the mandatory school closures during the pandemic. A gain of R$ 210 was recognized as Other income (expenses), net, in the statement of profit and loss. Except for these concessions, there were no changes to contractual obligations regarding leased buildings and there were no changes in the expected useful life and residual amount of properties and equipment as a result of Covid-19.

·

No changes in the provision for contingencies against the Company were identified as a result of Covid-19.

·

The Company currently has sufficient working capital and other undrawn financing facilities to service its operating activities and ongoing investments.

Due to the ongoing populational inoculation the Company is ready to resume on-campus unit’s classes with the necessary measures for the safety and well-being of students as soon as the state and local governments in Brazil authorize the schools reopening.

2.

Basis of preparation of the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Group as of June 30, 2021 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 – Interim Financial Reporting as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”). The information does not meet all disclosure requirements for the presentation of full annual consolidated financial statements and thus should be read in conjunction with the Group’s consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).

The accounting policies adopted are consistent with those of the previous fiscal year and corresponding interim reporting period. The Group has not early adopted any other standard, interpretation or amendment that has been issued but is not yet effective.

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in Brazilian reais (“R$”), and all amounts disclosed in the financial statements and notes have been rounded off to the nearest thousand currency units unless otherwise stated.

There were no changes since December 31, 2020 in the accounting practices adopted for consolidation and in the direct and indirect interests of the Company in its subsidiaries for the purposes of these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

2.1.

Significant accounting estimates and assumptions

The preparation of unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Group requires management to make judgments and estimates and to adopt assumptions that affect the amounts presented referring to revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities at the reporting date. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

In preparing these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements, the significant judgements and estimates made by management in applying the Group’s accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that are set the consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020.

2.2.

Financial instruments risk management objectives and policies

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all financial risk management information and disclosures required in the annual consolidated financial statements; they should be read in conjunction with the Group’s annual consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2020. There have been no changes in the risk management department or in any risk management policies since the year-end.

3.Segment reporting

Segment information is presented consistently with the internal reports provided to the Senior management team, consisting of the chief executive officer, the chief financial officer and other executives, and which is the Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM) and is responsible for allocating resources, assessing the performance of the Company's operating segments, and making the Company’s strategic decisions.

In reviewing the operational performance of the Company and allocating resources, the CODM reviews selected items of the statement of profit or loss and of comprehensive income, based on relevant financial data for each of the Company’s operating segments, represented by the Company’s main lines of service from which it generates revenue, as follows:

Distance learning undergraduate courses
Continuing education courses
On-campus undergraduate courses

Segment performance is primarily evaluated based on net revenue and on adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA). The Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as operating profit plus depreciation and amortization plus interest received on late payments of monthly tuition fees and adjusted by the elimination of effects from share-based compensation plus/minus exceptional expenses. General and administrative expenses (except for intangible assets’ amortization and impairment expenses), finance results (other than interest on tuition fees paid in arrears) and income taxes are managed on a Company’s consolidated basis and are not allocated to operating segments.

There were no inter-segment revenues in the period ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. There were no adjustments or eliminations in the profit or loss between segments.

The CODM do not make strategic decisions or evaluate performance based on geographic regions. Currently, the Company operates solely in Brazil and all the assets, liabilities and results are allocated in Brazil
