Learning Corp.
(OTC:SCIL), a leading SaaS service provider that
delivers neuroscience-based educational technologies, today announced
that it has released its unaudited financial results for the second
quarter of fiscal year 2018. Details of the quarterly results can be
found at

Concurrently, the company announced that Jeffrey D. Thomas has assumed
the role of CEO replacing Robert Bowen, who will continue to serve as
Chairman of the Board of Directors. Thomas was named co-CEO in February
after serving as the board's Lead Independent Director. Before joining
Scientific Learning, Thomas was involved with several private-equity
backed education companies in CEO and executive chairman positions. He
served for over 11 years as CEO of the Ambassadors Group Inc. and six
years as president and CFO of Ambassador International, both
publicly-traded, educational travel companies.

Bowen, who has served as Chairman of the Board since 2002, stated that
as the company implements its strategic shift to focus on the large and
rapidly expanding English language learning market, the time is right to
hand the reins to Thomas.

"Jeff has a unique skill set that will allow us to continuously improve
and innovate our Fast ForWord product line; grow our existing customer
base in the K-12 market and our clinical, consumer, and international
channels; and at the same time expand into a new and burgeoning market,"
said Bowen. "Under his leadership, Scientific Learning will continue its
leadership role in using the latest advances in neuroscience and
technology to help to deliver fast learning gains to all
students, including struggling readers, English language learners, and
students with disabilities."
