NetworkNewsBreaks – ProBility Media Corp. (PBYA) Enters Binding Letter of Intent to Purchase Cranbury International

Education technology company ProBility Media Corp. (OTCQB: PBYA) this morning announced that it has signed a binding letter of intent to purchase Cranbury International, an exporter of educational and reference materials located in Montpelier, Vermont. The acquisition is expected to close within 30 days and will significantly expand ProBility’s reach in markets throughout South and Central America, as well as the Caribbean. Cranbury, which markets and represents roughly 40 major publishers, currently sells educational materials to government institutions and private sector markets in Brazil, Mexico, Columbia, Trinidad and other international regions. “The purchase of Cranbury complements ProBility’s international strategy of offering educational and training materials dedicated to the skilled trades and further expands our international footprint,” Evan Levine, chairman and chief executive officer of ProBility, stated in the news release. “Cranbury’s trailing twelve month revenue of approximately $1.5 million is a meaningful addition to ProBility’s revenue base as well and we anticipate synergistic growth in the coming twelve months.”

ProBility Media Corp.’s (PBYA) E-Learning Brand Is Transforming Businesses

- July acquisition of W Marketing further expanded the ProBility educational brand into the U.S. electrical industry, a $130 billion market
- Products include virtual reality products for 3D animation and modeling training, thanks to a 51 percent ownership stake in ProBility Immersive Technologies
- ProBility Safety Academy now offers courses in private security, public safety, criminal justice and police science

An EdTech company serving numerous career-intensive fields, ProBility Media Corp. (OTCQB: PBYA) is offering businesses full-service training and career advancement resources. Small- and medium-sized businesses in these areas have traditionally had to rely on disparate e-learning resources. Now, ProBility is offering high quality materials that are consistent with those accessible by enterprise-level organizations. The company has recently expanded into many fields, serving businesses of all sizes in multiple industries with materials for training and career advancement.

ProBility closed an acquisition of W Marketing, Inc. in July 2017, expanding its reach into the electrical industry, valued at roughly $130 billion in the U.S. The resources available now include educational courses and exam preparation materials that are compliant with all relevant standards. They can potentially be used by the tens of thousands of electrical contractors in the country and by hundreds of thousands of electrical workers who install, maintain, and repair lighting, power, and communications systems.

The company’s educational products extend all the way into the virtual reality realm. In a strategic joint venture with Industrial3D Corp., ProBility Immersive Technologies was formed to create content focused on the virtual reality and interactive media content trades. Initially, the company added a library with over 200 industry-specific intellectual property animations. It also offers subscription services to energy and industrial sector employers.

Another recent addition to the company’s brand is ProBility Safety Academy. It is a complete online security and safety training institution spanning many fields, from private security to public safety, police science and criminal justice. Books, course content, and practice tests are open to students and professionals in any part of the safety and security industry. A joint venture with Ranger Guard and Investigations, the academy is accredited in the state of Texas.

ProBility isn’t just focusing on expanding its e-learning reach into various industries. Its recent letter of intent to purchase Cranbury International, which exports educational/reference materials to South and Central America and Caribbean nations, is evidence that the company is looking to expand internationally. A future acquisition, expected to close within 30 days (http://nnw.fm/0gWHm), could give ProBility access to private sector and government markets in Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, and other regions. Cranbury represents about 40 major publishers.

The company serves skilled trades through numerous divisions, including Brown Technical Publications Inc.; Brown Technical Media Corp.; Brown Book Shop, Inc.; One Exam Prep, LLC; and National Electrical Wholesale Providers. ProBility Safety Academy is one of these divisions as well. The available e-learning products for career training and advancement and compliance span over 60 trades, and the company continues to work toward expanding its scope.

ProBility Media Corp. (PBYA) eLearning Programs Support America’s Infrastructure Development

- eLearning programs to close the skills gap
- Shortage of electricians on the horizon
- Building an international training brand for technical vocations and trades

Although the details have not been published to date, Infrastructure Week, in early June, kept alive the hopes stemming from President Trump’s campaign promise to spend $1 trillion updating America’s aging infrastructure. If that grand initiative gets underway, thousands of skilled workers in a variety of fields will be required, but are they likely to be there when we need them? With the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reporting the national unemployment rate for June 2017 at 4.4 percent (http://nnw.fm/0DqVy), employers are finding it increasingly difficult to find the right hires, and millions of jobs remain vacant. Yet many of the unemployed cannot fill those positions, since they lack the required skills. To close this skills gap and make American workers infrastructure-ready, ProBility Media Corp. (OTCQB: PBYA) is offering a comprehensive suite of eLearning and training programs. The Houston, Texas-based company is building the first full service eLearning training and career advancement brand for technical vocations and trades.

Those infrastructural projects rebuilding roads and bridges and dams are going to need thousands of well-trained HVAC (heating, ventilation & air-conditioning) technicians, plumbers, and electricians. Electricians, particularly, are forecast to be in high demand. The BLS estimates that about 86,000 additional electricians will be needed by 2024. This rise in quantity demanded over the next seven years will be driven by the wiring of new homes and businesses, as well as an overall growth of the construction industry.

Due to these developments, the electrician field is projected to see a much faster than average growth rate of 14 percent in the years ahead, resulting in 85,900 new jobs by 2024. In addition, the BLS notes that because many employers have reported “difficulty finding qualified applicants,” a shortage of electricians is looming (http://nnw.fm/4eOLJ). This shouldn’t be. The median income for electricians is $51,880, higher than that for construction trades workers and higher than the median for all occupations. Electricians, it seems, make livable wages in a high-growth career.

With ProBility’s comprehensive suite of eLearning and training programs, budding electricians can build their resumes and their skills to take on those lucrative roles. But the company has positioned itself as a key industrial training resource not only for individuals, but for small- and medium-size businesses (SMEs) and enterprise customers. To individuals and institutions alike, ProBility’s objective is to offer consistent high-quality training services and materials for education, testing, and career advancement.

ProBility is endeavoring to become one of the largest certification providers in the country, with programs in 22 states and a goal of servicing all 50. It is pursuing a roll-up strategy in the disparate vocational training space, acquiring and amalgamating educational services for a variety of skilled trades under one roof, a strategy that is already showing signs of success. Revenues for the quarter ended April 30, 2017, were $1.8 million, up 153 percent over same period 2016, and revenues for the first six months of the 2017 financial year, at $2.9 million, were just below whole year 2016 revenues of $3.1 million. If sales continue at this level, ProBility is on track to see top line revenue exceed $7 million for 2017. The bottom line will be a better-trained workforce ready and able to take America’s infrastructure into the 21st century.

NetworkNewsBreaks – ProBility Media Corp. (PBYA) Advances on International Expansion Strategy with Acquisition of Cranbury International

EdTech innovator ProBility Media (OTCQB: PBYA) has completed its acquisition of Cranbury International, a Vermont-based exporter of educational and training materials to governmental institutions and the private sector in 40 international markets, including Brazil, Mexico, Columbia and Trinidad. “This acquisition is a major step in our geographic expansion plan. Once again we have found a great suite of products with an attractive customer base which enhances our model. ProBility will continue to provide the same standards of quality that Cranbury delivered to their clients, while simultaneously introducing virtual reality and digital animation products that we believe will be adopted more and more going forward. This acquisition is truly a marriage of traditional learning with ed-tech and is another exciting milestone for ProBility and its shareholders,” ProBility president and COO Noah Davis stated in the news release.

ProBility Media Corp. (PBYA) Recent Acquisitions, New Service Offerings Position Company as E-Learning Market Leader

- Strategic acquisitions driving company growth, offering unique opportunities for investment
- Company completed Cranbury International acquisition, expanding portfolio and international reach
- Product roster further expands with VR training materials and 3D animations

Innovative EdTech company ProBility Media Corp (OTCQB: PBYA) is solidifying its position on the e-learning and training market via a series of recent acquisitions and new service and product offerings. With a declared goal of building the first full-service career advancement and training brand for skilled trades, ProBility is offering a combination of training and educational materials with virtual reality-based products for modeling training and 3D animation to an expanding international market.

The Houston, Texas-based company has just completed the acquisition of Vermont-based provider of education and training materials Cranbury International, thus gaining access to a wide range of new products destined for government institutions and private sector markets in several countries, including Brazil, Colombia, Trinidad, Mexico and many others. Aside from increasing its international reach and customer base, the acquisition will allow ProBility to introduce several of its own e-learning and virtual reality programs to new markets, at the same quality standards Cranbury has been adhering to since its creation in 2010.

Virtual reality has been a major component of ProBility’s product roster for a while, being used successfully for crane operator training, and the technology’s role is set to increase further as a result of ProBility’s joint venture with Industrial3D Corp., a provider and developer of 3D modeling, 3D animation and interactive media. Under the name ProBility Immersive Technologies, the joint venture specializes in creating interactive media and virtual reality content for ProBility’s current educational offerings, as well as for any custom products designed for clients who want to conduct their training in-house.

The joint venture has enhanced ProBility’s portfolio with over 200 3D animations targeting the industries it already serves, such as energy, medical manufacturing, engineering, etc., and it also enables the company to significantly expand its comprehensive offering of career advancement, training and compliance materials for more than 60 skilled trades.

The move came shortly after ProBility took a larger share of the educational market for the electrical contractor industry, estimated at $130 billion, following the acquisition of W Marketing, Inc., a provider of National Electrical Codes to the construction and electrical industries with a vast library of educational courses and exam preparation materials. In addition to strengthening ProBility’s financial position, the acquisition will allow the company to become one of the largest wholesale providers of National Fire Protection Association electrical codes in the United States.

The company has also expanded into the field of safety and security with the launch of an online training place, the ProBility Safety Academy – the result of a joint venture with Range Guard and Investigations Vice President Jonah Nathan. The Texas-accredited academy offers training, exam materials and courses for various security and safety fields including police science, public safety, private security, private investigation and criminal justice.

ProBility’s strategic acquisitions policy is making the company an appealing opportunity for investors in the e-learning and training space who are looking for ways of tapping into a growing organization serving dozens of industries and helping bring skilled trades and businesses into the 21st century. With an impressive portfolio of training and education programs, both online and in print, the company aims to change the landscape for small and medium businesses by offering them access to quality training materials typically only available to enterprise firms. Through its ever-growing product offerings and its acquisition policy, ProBility is set to position itself as a market leader in the e-learning sector and a high-quality source of testing, education and career advancement services.

Demand for Skilled Labor Creates Opening for EdTech Leaders

NetworkNewsWire Coverage: Roughly 20.5 million students attended American colleges and universities in the fall of 2016, marking an annual increase of about 5.2 million since 2000. This surge, as reported by the National Center for Education Statistics1, comes alongside seemingly endless escalations of tuition expenses and a mounting student loan debt crisis2, which Forbes notes is now the second-highest consumer debt category. Between 2011-2012 and 2016-2017, published tuition and fee prices rose by roughly nine percent in the public four-year sector and 13 percent at private nonprofit four-year institutions, according to The College Board3. ProBility Media Corp. (PBYA) (PBYA Profile) is providing an alternative to the expenses of traditional colleges with a selection of career training and advancement programs aimed at capitalizing on rising demand for skilled workers. Along with competitors such as IHS Markit Ltd. (INFO), TrueBlue, Inc. (TBI), GP Strategies Corp. (GPX) and Aspen Group, Inc. (ASPU), ProBility is working to address the skilled labor shortage that’s threatening to stunt the forward growth of the U.S. economy.

A 2017 report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce4 gives additional insight into the rising demand for skilled labor across the country. Among those surveyed by the Chamber of Commerce, roughly two-thirds of employers said that they’ll be hiring new employees over the next month, but approximately 95 percent noted difficulty in finding skilled workers for their existing job openings in the second quarter of 2017. This dearth of eligible applicants comes as the Trump administration seeks to make good on its promise to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure5 in the U.S. Bob Pitts, senior policy advisor for the Associated Builders and Contractors Greater Tennessee Chapter, summed up the issue in an interview with the Memphis Daily News6. “The economy has gotten stronger, the demand for construction and new building has expanded significantly and it doesn’t show any signs of declining,” Pitts stated. “It’s going to take additional people that the industry does not have to meet the demands of the next couple of decades.”

Many analysts suggest that vocational education programs and related EdTech opportunities could serve as a solution to this labor shortage, and the EdTech industry is flourishing as a result. Earlier this year, Research and Markets forecast a compound annual growth rate of around 7.2 percent for the global EdTech market over the next decade, with the sector reaching $325 billion by 2025. ProBility Media, as the first company to offer full chain career advancement programs, is primed to capitalize on this growth. Currently focused on changing the landscape for small- and medium-sized businesses by providing consistent, high quality online training courses that are typically only accessible for enterprise companies, ProBility’s offerings target the needs of more than 60 skilled trades and include a comprehensive suite of career training, advancement and compliance tools. This expansive portfolio has helped the company attract and maintain an extremely diversified customer base that includes over 15,000 corporate customers, including many Fortune 500 businesses and government agencies around the world.

Leveraging a disruptive strategy of defragmenting the marketplace of small competitors through strategic platform acquisitions and organic growth, ProBility is currently in a period of rapid expansion that parallels the growth of the vocational education industry itself. In its corporate presentation, the company forecast organic growth in excess of 100 percent in 2017, in addition to its robust and active pipeline of acquisitions. This pipeline has been particularly noteworthy year-to-date, as ProBility has already completed four strategic acquisitions that will likely bolster its position at the forefront of the market. In January, the company announced the acquisition of both National Electric Wholesale Providers (http://nnw.fm/Gx3dB), a provider of electrician-related study materials and the National Electric Code with 2016 revenues of $1.54 million, and One Exam Prep (http://nnw.fm/O2e6Q), which established ProBility’s “footprint in the construction training business, one of the largest certification populations in the United States,” according to ProBility president and COO Noah Davis. ProBility also acquired W Marketing in June and Cranbury International (http://nnw.fm/gDLQ1) earlier this month. These two companies recorded combined 2016 revenues in excess of $4.3 million.

After announcing the W Marketing acquisition, Davis noted the importance of this aggressive expansion strategy to expanding ProBility’s presence in the education technology market and promoting returns for the company’s shareholders, particularly as the White House pushes for large scale infrastructure updates. “With the aggressive push from the current administration and the anticipated apprenticeship program, ProBility is positioned to take advantage of the projected upturn in the macroeconomic environment for construction and building by offering high quality products with the emphasis on safety,” he stated in a news release (http://nnw.fm/ch4RN).

In addition to its aggressive acquisition activity in recent months, ProBility’s freshly-launched ProBility Safety Academy serves as an example of the company’s commitment to facilitating organic growth. Formed as a joint venture with Jonah Nathan, vice president of Ranger Guard and Investigations, ProBility Safety Academy offers courses, training and exam preparation materials for a variety of fields, including private investigation, private security, public safety, police science and criminal justice. In a news release (http://nnw.fm/V3EJd), Nathan noted that ProBility Safety Academy is “one of the only online institutions in the U.S. that is solely dedicated to these fields.”

IHS Markit, formed following the July 2016 merger of IHS Inc. and Markit Ltd., is another company that’s capitalizing on the demand for skilled labor, offering comprehensive training courses in formats and frequencies for professionals around the globe. IHS serves more than 50,000 key business and government customers, including 80 percent of the Fortune Global 500, meaning that it shares many customers with ProBility Media Corp. In addition to its training programs, IHS also supports world-class academic and educational practices across civilian, commercial and military spheres by delivering reliable data, information, analysis and forecasting to a variety of industries and technologies. In late June, IHS gave prospective investors some insight into the growth potential offered by its forays into these career advancement markets when it reported its second quarter 2017 financial results. Among the highlights, the company’s revenue totaled $906 million for the three-month period, up from $588 million in the same period of 2016. As of August 20, shares of IHS traded at approximately $45.75, up more than 25 percent from one year ago.

Another company operating in the growing career advancement space is TrueBlue. According to its website, TrueBlue’s portfolio of employment brands puts more than 840,000 people to work each year, partnering with about 130,000 companies around the world. Notable among these brands are PeopleReady, TrueBlue’s employment solution for the general labor and construction industries; PeopleScout, a managed service provider that boasts 98 percent client retention with its integrated and highly-customized talent solutions; and Staff Management, TrueBlue’s high-volume temporary staffing solution. The differentiator for these brands is a commitment to providing clients with a competent workforce that can improve productivity and drive growth for TrueBlue’s sizable client base.

GP Strategies is a leader in sales and technical training, EdTech solutions, management consulting and engineering services. As GPX notes on its website, “Traditional approaches to learning solutions are no longer equipped to deliver the business impact that organizations need.” As such, the company offers advanced managed learning services aimed at providing specialized training to employees that’s designed to tackle the unique challenges faced by clients from a number of industries. GPX specializes in helping its clients analyze their existing learning solutions in an effort to identify key areas for improvement, such as shifting from live events to more modern, technologically advanced blended solutions that take advantage of existing EdTech platforms. GPX notes the potential upside to this analysis in a case study on its website. By developing an engaging e-learning program, the company helped client MasterCard transform its annual compliance training from a ‘check-the-box’ activity, and the results speak to the efficacy of such efforts. MasterCard met its target of exceeding industry standards following implementation of GPX’s customized solution.

Post-secondary education company Aspen Group targets the education market with responsibly priced distance-learning education opportunities. Taking aim at the rising costs of traditional college education, Aspen offers curriculums in professional studies, nursing, education and business and technology. For shareholders, this business model has proven lucrative. Earlier this month, Aspen listed its shares on the Nasdaq Capital Market, a move that chairman and CEO Michael Mathews noted “should provide expanded visibility for Aspen Group, improved liquidity for [ASPU] stock, and greater value for [ASPU] shareholders.” In late July, Aspen reported 69 percent revenue growth and record revenues of $14.25 million in fiscal 2017. The company’s gross profit was up 101 percent year-over-year for the 12-month period. With this performance, it should come as little surprise that ASPU’s PPS has recorded strong growth in recent months. In January, the company’s shares hovered near $3.60. By June, they climbed to a high of $6.70.

Rising tuition expenses and increasing demand for skilled labor are putting into motion a modern-day renaissance in the global education industry. Companies like ProBility Media are uniquely positioned to capitalize on this evolving market by offering specialized products and services aimed at bolstering the availability of qualified candidates for hiring employers and boosting retention rates by developing customized training and career advancement programs. The recent stock performance of industry players IHS Markit Ltd. and Aspen Group Inc. highlights the massive upside this industry presents to shareholders, and the aggressive expansion efforts undertaken by ProBility Media Corp. suggest that it could be an intriguing opportunity for prospective investors to cash in as the employment market kicks into high gear.

NetworkNewsBreaks – ProBility Media’s (PBYA) One Exam Prep Division Strengthens National Presence with Asset Purchase Agreement

- Company now includes Brown Technical Media Corp., Brown Technical Publications Inc., Brown Book Shop, Inc., National Electrical Wholesale Providers, W Marketing, One Exam Prep, LLC, ProBility Safety Academy, ProBility Immersive Technologies, Cranbury International and its partnership with GlobalSim Inc.

ProBility Media Corp (OTCQB: PBYA) has been driven to serve as many customers in diverse fields as possible, and a solid acquisition and growth strategy has helped it become an emerging leader in the eLearning and training segment. It is developing a full-service training and career advancement brand that is benefiting small- and medium-sized companies that can now have access to the same resources as their larger counterparts. Its product offerings include high-tech training that incorporates intensive interactive media such as virtual reality and 3D modeling. Thanks to ProBility, clients can find these products and more without having to resort to gathering them from multiple sources, saving time, effort and money.

Having recently acquired National Electrical Wholesale Providers and W Marketing, Inc., ProBility now serves the electrical industry. A variety of educational courses and exam preparation products are accessible through the company’s website. Any electrical contractor can obtain the training they need and learn how to properly install, maintain, and repair power, lighting, and communication systems. There is also a digital media library of intellectual property animations, plus subscription services that energy/industrial employers can take advantage of.

The EdTech company has expanded its scope as much as its industry reach. With the purchase of Cranbury International, it can now offer the same breadth of service to the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. It also now offers heating ventilation and air conditioning training via Brown Technical, plus training materials on ASTM codes and standards, and plumbing and pipefitting training courses, handbooks, and other materials.

Its 1 Exam Prep division enables ProBility to offer access to exam preparation at the state, county, or OSHA level.

There are also numerous resources for employers that want to manage their training on-premises.

An expanding set of training, compliance and career advancement materials are open to businesses in over 60 trades. Electrical, HVAC, plumbing, crane operations and boilermakers are just a few of them.

ProBility Media Corp. (PBYA) Professional e-Learning and Training Addressing Rising Demand for Skilled Labor

- ProBility now offers leading vocational educational materials in 60+ fields, including the electrical, construction, plumbing and security industries
- An overwhelming majority of technical employers are struggling to find workers with the appropriate skills
- Technical high schools are simulating workplaces to prepare students for their careers in historically underprivileged areas

Access to technology-based education resources is becoming open to more people. Even as the National Center for Education Statistics reported about 20.5 million students (fall 2016) were enrolled in colleges and universities throughout the U.S., career training and advancement materials are becoming more available to those looking for jobs requiring skilled labor. ProBility Media Corp. (OTCQB: PBYA) is a growing brand serving the training requirements for several different technical fields. In many of these, 95 percent of employers are having trouble finding workers with the right skills in 2017, based on U.S. Chamber of Commerce data published in a recent report (http://nnw.fm/Fe8zJ) on skilled labor demand.

Thanks to several recent acquisitions, ProBility can now provide study materials for electricians, construction workers, contractors, and plumbers, as well as many other skilled trades. The company provides access to all the latest NEC National Electrical Codes, with books, reference guides, and digital media available on CD and DVD. It has also reached into the public safety market. The launch of ProBility Safety Academy means training is open to those looking to advance their potential in public safety, private security, criminal justice, and police science.

The need for vocational training services is reaching from coast to coast. High school teachers and students alike are benefiting. In fact, technical high schools are cropping up in places like Huntington, West Virginia, as a recent New York Times article pointed out (http://nnw.fm/xTD3Y). Four teachers at a summer training program worked on a miniature boiler similar to larger counterparts found at power generating plants. The educational programs they’re preparing for will simulate workplaces and include everything from vocational training to random drug testing, to get students familiarized with work environments and prepared for future careers.

Simulated workplaces also have real-world equipment, ranging from drafting tables and welding torches to stethoscopes and 3D printers. Laser engraving equipment and professional software are expected to be used, from leading brands like AutoDesk Inventor. As part of the program, students will also get breaks during the day as employees working for technical organizations do.

ProBility is focused on providing a one-stop resource. Therefore, small- and medium-sized businesses can access e-learning resources, so they can offer employees training and career advancement opportunities. Its efforts to provide a single source of training materials does not stop at the borders of the United States. The recent acquisition of Cranbury International extends the company’s e-learning reach into the Caribbean, Mexico, Columbia, Brazil, and other countries in Central and South America.
