1. Message from Management

These quarter’s results reinforce that our strategy has been successful, marked by the consistent growth of our operational and financial results, with significant increases in net revenue and adjusted EBITDA year over year. Once again, we have successfully concluded our intake process with a 100% of occupancy in all medical schools which enables us to reassure our 2022 guidance. It is also important to highlight that our operational leverage and capital allocation discipline are resulting in a robust net income and EPS expansion even considering the business combinations and the higher interest rates in the period.

With the pandemic finally losing its strength, our students, employees, and partners are again extracting the best from our ecosystem. For the second quarter in a row, we can see our Continuing Education recovery compared to last year. After challenging periods, our practical classes are boosting again, as we’ve invested in an expansion plan that allowed us to double our campuses, launch new courses, and to strength our intake process.

As presented on Afya´s Q2 earnings release, our digital services results is progressively ramping up. We’re proud that our tools are being able to help physicians’ during their medical journey and, throughout development and new acquisitions, our digital ecosystem is being built with multiple offerings, unlocking new interactions and revenue streams that go beyond the physicians, achieving pharma players, hospitals, labs and drugstores chains, scratching the surface of a total addressable market of R$28.4 billion. The acquisitions we completed this quarter – Cardiopapers and Glic - along with our previous acquisitions completed our 6 pillars, is strengthening the digital services strategy and ecosystem. Since the beginning of the year, we have been disclosing our B2P and B2B figures, breaking down our Digital Service’s net revenue within these two for a better perspective.

Along with that scenario, the expansion of our offering in the Undergrad segment continues to grow strong, as we’ve successfully consolidated our leadership in medical school seats in Brazil. So far this year, we have increased 200 operating seats with four new Mais Médicos authorized units by MEC, with operations to start in the second semester and 28 new seats from the UniSL Ji-Paraná campus, reaching 2,759 approved seats. Considering potential additional organic and inorganic seats, we have an expected upside to achieve more than 32 thousand undergrad medical students at maturity. We have become highly efficient in operating medical schools and we continue to see opportunities in this area. All this effort means one thing: our medical education business remains, and will continue to be, the cornerstone of our business in the short and middle terms, delivering a highly predicted growth combined with high profitability and cash generation.

Also, since 2020 we’ve been presenting our ESG evolution and achievements each quarter, and we are proud to say that we’ve been making significant improvements in the environmental, social, and governance agenda, sequentially. One important accomplishment this quarter was the increase in the number of women as board members, which went from 18% to now 27%. Subjects related to climate change, clean energy powering, environmental governance, social impact on vulnerable areas, transparency, compliance, and many others are widely disclosed in our 2021 Sustainability Report.

With another round of high and sustainable growth, our mission remains solid as ever: to become the reference partner of physicians in their journey, through rewarding lifelong experience and an enhanced daily practice through Afya’s digital services. We are very proud of our business and of what we have achieved so far, as well as of what we are planning for the future.

2. Key Events in the Quarter:

Seasonality

Undergrad’s and Continuing Education tuition revenues are related to the intake process and monthly tuition fees charged to students over the period thus the Company does not have significant fluctuations during the semester. Digital Services is comprised mostly by Medcel, Pebmed and iClinic revenues. While Pebmed and iClinic do not have significant fluctuation regarding seasonality, Medcel’s revenue is concentrated in the first and last quarter of the year, as a result of the enrollments of Medcel’s clients period. The majority of Medcel’s revenues are derived from printed books and e-books, which are recognized at the point in time when control is transferred to the customer. Consequently, the Digital Services segment generally has higher revenues and results of operations in the first and last quarters of the year compared to the second and third quarters of the year.

Revenue

This quarter the Company recovered R$22.1 million of the mandatory discounts in tuition fees previously granted by individual and collective legal proceedings and public civil proceedings related to COVID-19. As Afya in 2020 and 2021 excluded these mandatory discounts from Adjusted Net Revenue, the recovery of these amounts are not counted for Adjusted Net Revenue in 2022.

Adjusted Net Revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was R$576.1 million, an increase of 51.0% over the same period of the prior year. Excluding acquisitions, Adjusted Net Revenue in the second quarter increased 19.0% YoY to R$454.0 million, mainly due to the maturation of medical seats, higher tickets in Medicine courses, and the Continuing Education recovery, which ended the second quarter with a 49.0% increase in net revenue, mainly due to the interruption of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Digital services also contributed to the Adjusted Net Revenues growth this quarter, increasing 50.1% year over year, and 20.2%, excluding acquisitions. The organic growth is a combination of (a) the start of the B2B engagements, reaching 37 contracts with 20 pharmaceutical industry companies, and (b) the expansion of the active payers in the B2P, mainly in Whitebook and iClinic.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, Adjusted Net Revenue was R$1,143.8 million, an increase of 45.9% over the same period of last year. Excluding acquisitions, Adjusted Net Revenue in the six-month period increased 14.7% YoY to R$899.3 million.

Adjusted Net Income

Net Income for the second quarter of 2022 was R$106.1 million, an increase of 383.4% over the same period of the prior year. Net Income results were positively affected by (a) the increase in operational results, which includes the recovery of a portion of the prior granted discounts in tuition fees related to COVID-19, and (b) the reduction of financial expenses mainly due to the fx rate difference regarding the Softbank transaction that affected 2Q21. For the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, Net Income increased 78.1%, from R$135.3 million to R$241.0 million.

Cash and Debt Position

Cash and cash equivalents on June 30, 2022, were R$616.3 million, a decrease of 56.7% over the same period in 2021.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, Afya reported Adjusted Cash Flow from Operations of R$450.0 million, up from R$343.2 million in the same period of the previous year, an increase of 31.1% YoY, boosted by the solid operational results.

Operating Cash Conversion Ratio was strong once again, achieving 91.0% for the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to 103.5% in the same period of the previous year. This decrease was mainly related to (a) an increase in the trade receivables, partially caused by the recovery of the mandatory discounts in tuition fees related to COVID-19 that were invoiced but not yet received, (b) the fact that last year’s cash performance was positively impacted by the recover of the special payment conditions related to the COVID-19 given to our students during 2020, and (c) a decrease in advanced from customers.

On June 30, 2022, net debt, excluding the effect of IFRS 16, totaled R$1,483.4 million, compared with net debt of R$582.7 million in the same period in 2021, mainly due to payments related to (a) 7 business combinations and license acquisitions executed in the last 12 months, totaling R$891.3 million; (b) shares repurchase program of R$301.3 million, executed in the last 12 months and (c) investments activities in properties, equipment and intangibles (excluding license acquisitions and goodwill) totaling R$213.4 million in the last 12 months, which were partially offset by the R$738.3 million cash generation from June 30, 2021 through June 30, 2022. The following table shows more information regarding the cost of debt for the second quarter, considering loans and financing, and accounts payable to selling shareholders. It is important to mention that our capital structure remains solid with a conservative leveraging position and a low cost of debt.

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board—IASB, Afya uses Adjusted EBITDA and Operating Cash Conversion Ratio information, which are non-GAAP financial measures, for the convenience of investors. A non-GAAP financial measure is generally defined as one that intends to measure financial performance but excludes or includes amounts that would not be equally adjusted in the most comparable GAAP measure.

Afya calculates Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus/minus net financial result plus income taxes expense plus depreciation and amortization plus interest received on late payments of monthly tuition fees, plus share-based compensation plus/minus share of income of associate plus/minus non-recurring expenses. The calculation of Adjusted Net Income is net income plus amortization of customer relationships and trademark, plus share-based compensation. We calculate Operating Cash Conversion Ratio as the cash flow from operations, adjusted with income taxes paid divided by Adjusted EBITDA plus/minus non-recurring expenses.

Management presents Adjusted EBITDA, because it believes these measures provide investors with a supplemental measure of financial performance of the core operations that facilitates period-to-period comparisons on a consistent basis. Afya also presents Operating Cash Conversion Ratio because it believes this measure provides investors with a measure of how efficiently the Company converts EBITDA into cash. The non-GAAP financial measures described in this prospectus are not a substitute for the IFRS measures of earnings. Additionally, calculations of Adjusted EBITDA and Operating Cash Conversion Ratio may be different from the calculations used by other companies, including competitors in the education services industry, and therefore, Afya’s measures may not be comparable to those of other companies.
