Item 1.01       Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 15, 2016, DeVry Education Group Inc. (“DeVry Group”) announced that DeVry Group, DeVry University, Inc. (“DeVry University”), and DeVry/New York Inc. (collectively, the “DeVry Parties”) and the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) agreed to a Stipulation as to Entry of an Order for Permanent Injunction and Monetary Judgment (the “Agreement”) resolving litigation brought by the FTC regarding DeVry University’s use of employment statistics in former advertising.  The Agreement will become effective upon its entry as an Order in the United States District Court of the Central District of California.

Under the terms of the Agreement, the DeVry Parties agreed to pay $49.4 million to be distributed at the sole discretion of the FTC; to forgive $30.4 million of institutional loans issued before September 30, 2015; and to forgive outstanding DeVry University accounts receivable balances by $20.2 million for former students.  DeVry Group expects to record a related pre-tax settlement charge in the range of $52 million to $55 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 arising from the monetary terms of the settlement.  In addition, the DeVry Parties agreed that DeVry Group institutions marketing to U.S. consumers will maintain specific substantiation to support any future advertising regarding graduate outcomes and educational benefits, and will implement training and other agreed-upon compliance measures.

DeVry Group chose to settle the FTC litigation after filing an answer denying all allegations of wrongdoing.  Student services and access to federal student loans are not impacted by the Agreement, and at no time has the academic quality of a DeVry University education been questioned.  DeVry Group is pleased this matter is reaching resolution, particularly as its institutions implement recently announced student commitments and as it continues to focus on investments that directly support its students’ success.

The foregoing description of certain terms contained in the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the copy of the Agreement filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
Item 7.01       Regulation FD Disclosure
On December 15, 2016, DeVry Group issued a statement regarding the signing of the Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
