About Cogna Educação

Cogna Educação is one of the largest private educational organizations in the world, operating for over 70 years. In 2010, Cogna acquired IUNI Educacional Group, an institution which also offered on-campus undergraduate and graduate programs; in 2011, the highlight was the acquisition of Universidade Norte do Paraná (Unopar), the largest distance learning institution in the county. To crown this intense rhythm of acquisitions, in 2013, Cogna carried out the largest investment in its history: its merger with Anhanguera, thereby consolidating its leadership in both the on-campus and distance learning segments. On October 11, 2018, Cogna concluded the operation to acquire the controlling interest in Somos, the leading primary and secondary education group in Brazil, in yet another transformational step for the Company, making it a complete educational platform with an important presence in all segments of Primary & Secondary Education.

Currently, Cogna has 844,000 on-campus and digital undergraduate students in its Kroton vertical, and 44,000 graduate students in its Platos vertical, served by 176 own Postsecondary Education units and 1,536 accredited Digital Education centers. In K-12 Education, the Saber vertical had 31,000 students distributed in 52 own schools/managed through contracts and 22,000 students distributed in 122 Red Balloon units, while the Vasta vertical had 1.5 million students served through approximately 4,200 partner schools using core and complementary content solutions.

Fully committed to good corporate governance practices and excellence in its investor relations, Cogna seeks to ensure efficient and transparent information disclosure. Its shares are listed on the Novo Mercado of São Paulo’s Stock Exchange – B3 (COGN3) and on the OTCQX in New York (COGNY).
