Washington Post sale to affect education company Kaplan Inc.

August 6, 2013

With the recent announcement of the sale of the Washington Post newspaper to Amazon.com’s founder Jeff Bezos, education company Kaplan Inc. will now make up nearly two-thirds of the revenue of the soon-to-be-renamed Washington Post Co. Kaplan and its subsidiaries, including Kaplan Higher Education and its mostly online Kaplan University, will remain part of the publicly- traded Washington Post Co. For-profit Kaplan has seen revenue decline in recent years, with a 9% decrease in the first 6 months of 2013 compared to 2012. Chronicle of Higher Education | Washington Post | Inside Higher Ed
