Recent News & Updates
Hailiang Sees The Writing On The China Blackboard
China's sweeping private education reform, known locally as “double reduction,” included the banning of after-school tutoring on weekends and public holidays, and the requirement that all private sector operators get official education licenses and run on a non-profit basis. Hailiang was relatively less affected by recent government-led cleanup of private education sector, but still faces large uncertainties. Hailiang Education Group announced last week that it has received a buyout offer from a group led by its founder Feng Hailiang.
Hailiang Education Walks Fine Line Between Growth And Raising Regulatory Ire
Hailiang Education has reported solid revenue and profit growth for its latest fiscal year before sweeping regulatory changes took effect. Company’s high-growth after-school tutoring services are likely to take big hit from regulatory changes, as future uncertainty weighs on its shares. With the tutoring business most likely set to leave the company’s future financials, Hailiang needs to find growth somewhere else.
