We are the largest global network of degree-granting higher education institutions, with more than one million students enrolled at our 71 institutions in 25 countries on more than 200 campuses, which we collectively refer to as the Laureate International Universitiesnetwork. We  participate in the global higher education market, which was estimated to account for revenues of approximately $1.5 trillion in 2015, according to GSV Advisors. We believe the global higher education market presents an attractive long-term opportunity, primarily because of the large and growing imbalance between the supply and demand for quality higher education around the world. Advanced education opportunities drive higher earnings potential, and we believe the projected growth in the middle class population worldwide and limited government resources dedicated to higher education create substantial opportunities for high-quality private institutions to meet this growing and unmet demand. Our outcomes-driven strategy is focused on enabling millions of students globally to prosper and thrive in the dynamic and evolving knowledge economy.
