Above all, we want to thank our educators and teams around the world who make this possible.," Stuart Haselden, chief operating officer, said.

The company ended the second quarter of fiscal 2018 with $777.8 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $721.2 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2017.

Diluted earnings per share are likely to be in the range of $0.65 to $0.67 for the quarter. This guidance assumes 133.0 million diluted weighted-average shares outstanding and a 30 per cent tax rate.
