MEDIA RELEASE

20 February 2013 SAE/Qantm animates Navitas financial results ASX listed education provider Navitas (ASX: NVT), has partnered with SAE and Qantm students and graduates to produce an animated infographic video (available via Vimeo and YouTube) of the companys 2013 half year financial results; the first time a listed company has communicated its financial results in such a way in Australia. Acquired by Navitas two years ago, SAE and Qantm Australia offers Higher Education and VET education opportunities to more than 2,500 students, including certificate, diploma, degree and masters programs across audio production, film production, games design, games programming, animation, web and graphic design, and interactive digital media. SAE (including Qantm) is one of the worlds leading media technology training institutes, with 53 campuses in 27 countries. Navitas Chief Financial Officer Bryce Houghton said: We wanted to explore new ways of making our financial results, which can be a bit dry for some people, more accessible to a wider group including our students, staff and shareholders. We started talking to SAE about animated infographic videos and they then helped us to find Josh, a current student at Qantm Perth, who jumped at the opportunity to produce the video and quickly formed a team of SAE and Qantm students, graduates and industry professionals. Josh and his team then worked with Navitas staff to write, produce, design and animate the video which we think is a novel way of explaining our half year results while also showcasing the quality of an SAE/Qantm education, Mr Houghton said. Second year Qantm animation student Josh was excited to become involved in the project. Our research found that no other Australian listed company had created an animated infographic video for its financial results before so we were keen to be the first to do so. I was excited to lead a team of students to create a professional project and to have the responsibility for pulling it all together. We worked well as a project team, dealt with any challenges and are all really proud of the end result, Josh said. ------ENDS-----For further information contact: James Fuller Group Public and Investor Relations Manager Navitas Limited
