Universal Technical Institute, Inc.

Universal Technical Institute Inc. (NYSE: UTI), a provider of technical education training, today announced a reduction in force of approximately 225 employees nationwide, effective September 16, 2007. The nationwide headcount of the Company following these terminations is approximately 2,080 employees, compared to 2,368 employees as of September 30, 2006.

"Given our lower average student population and current utilization rates, we continue to make appropriate, yet difficult choices. These choices allow UTI to operate as cost effectively and efficiently as possible, without compromising the quality of our training and customer service," said President and CEO, Kimberly McWaters. "We continue to see progress on our key initiatives and evidence of economic trends that have historically supported UTI's growth, such as increases in unemployment and downward pressure on interest rates. However, the business impact of our progress and these economic trends is yet to be realized. This, in combination with our capacity to improve operating efficiency, necessitates these actions."

Severance and outplacement charges relating to the reduction in force, as well as the previously reported campus sales management restructuring, of approximately $3.6 million and $0.8 million, respectively, will be included in the results of the fourth quarter ending September 30, 2007. Approximately 75% is associated with Educational Services and Facilities expense, with the remaining 25% related to Sales, General and Administrative expense. The reduction in force is expected to provide a cost savings in fiscal 2008 of approximately $10.7 million to $11.4 million. These cost savings are expected to be substantially offset by investments in marketing, student financing alternatives and the outsourcing of certain student financial aid processing.
