I really like this stock... I think this is a gem... could be a multi-bagger stock.

The growth story is good and the price is great!

This stock is worth our patience.

PD: I currently own 146,000 shares and planning to sell my ANS(11,300 shares) and transfer fund to STI.

STI to hike capital to P1B for expansion
By Conrado M. Diaz Jr.  | Updated August 31, 2001 - 12:00am

The STI school chain will increase its capital base to P1 billion within the year as it gears up for a major expansion program within the next three to five years, its president and CEO Chito Salazar said.


In a briefing with reporters, Salazar said the additional fund infusion "will enable us to strengthen our existing school network, provide the IT backbone for other key strategic initiatives and build up operations for global expansion."


STI started in 1983 with three training centers and less than a thousand students but has since expanded to become the country’s largest and most successful network of IT-based educational institution with over 100 schools and more than 80,000 students.


Salazar said the increase in capital from their present base of P400 mllion would help jumpstart their expansion in the Asia-Pacific region, including the establishment of STI schools in the US, China, Japan, Vientam, Singapore, Pakistan and Bangladesh. There are at present three offshore STI schools – two in Taiwan and one in Hong Kong.


From an IT training and learning institution, STI has also evolved into a wholistic educational institution that offers IT-enhanced courses starting from pre-school up to the high school levels.


The STI head added that part of their expansion plans include the graduation of STI itself from collegiate level to university status, offering a multi-disciplinary field ranging from arts and sciences, nursing, accounting, engineering and education, all with emphasis on IT applications.


In addition, STI will branch out into the A-B market niche as it is set to formalize next month a tie-up with a US-based IT institute, said to be the biggest of its kind in the world, to open by June next year an exclusive IT college in the heart of Makati.


The company will use the recently acquired Bank of Commerce building along Ayala Avenue as its corporate headquarters and to house the new exclusive school.


Salazar said a further expansion of STI’s network would involve the setting up of cyberhubs, or small local sites of about 10 computer terminals, targetted in every town to make IT accessible even to far-flung areas in the country.


STI’s present chain of 110 schools are mostly under franchise, with only 16 establishments directly owned by the company. Aside from the quality of IT education, STI’s rapid expansion could also be attributed to its affordable tuition fees and accessibility. This schoolyear, its total enrollment grew by 25 percent.


Last year, the company earned P55 million on total revenues of P400 million. In the three years’ time, Salazar said they will be aiming for a P1-billion revenue goal, eventually priming itself up for a possible listing at the Philippine Stock Exchange and in foreign bourses such as the Singapore and US technology boards.

STI nearly triples 2012 earnings
By Neil Jerome C. Morales (The Philippine Star) | Updated July 18, 2013 - 12:00am
 

MANILA, Philippines - Listed education firm STI Education Systems Holdings Inc. of businessman Eusebio Tanco nearly tripled its earnings last year as the educational institution enjoyed higher enrolment.

In a regulatory filing, STI said its net income surged 171 percent to P794.2 million in its fiscal year that ended in March, up from P292.6 million a year ago.


This was backed by a six percent increase in revenues to P1.66 billion from P1.57 billion earlier.

STI attributed the uptick to “the increase in the number of students of STI and its subsidiaries from 66,740 to 68,363 students resulting in higher revenues from tuition and other school fees.”

“STI’s enrolment mix was more favorable in 2013 than in 2012, as enrolment leaned more towards the STI network’s four-year programs than the two-year programs,” it added.

Cost and expenses, which include cost of educational services and general expenses, rose nearly six percent to P1.28 billion from P1.2 billion a year ago.


 
In a statement, STI said it has completed the construction of the STI Academic Center campus in Cainta, Rizal.

“The new campus, which promises to be one of the most modern education facilities in the country, can accommodate 7,800 students,” STI said.

The campus sits on a four-hectare property that features two structures: a three-story building that now serves as the headquarters of STI, and a seven-story building that houses the school.

STI is also preparing for the construction of school campuses in Cubao, Las Piñas, Calamba and Lucena, which are expected to be ready for school year 2014-2015.

“Our expansion strategy reflects our commitment to education and the future of our youth. We aim to continually improve our facilities and upgrade the quality of education we deliver,” said STI president Monico Jacob.

In April, STI signed a deal with the Agustin family for the acquisition of a controlling stake in West Negros University (WNU) Corp., which owns and operates Bacolod City-based West Negros University.

In November, STI raised P2.36 billion through a follow-on offering. Tanco consolidated all his education assets – the STI chain of schools, a 40 percent stake in Philippine Women’s University and iAcademy – under STI, and a 20-percent interest in STI Investments, which holds Tanco’s strategic investment in Philplans, a leading pre-need savings program with plans dedicated to education, and Philcare.

----------------------------

Their Las piñas and calamba laguna campus will be finished by May 2014.

Also construction of STI Cubao is expected to be completed by March 2014.

STI starts school expansion, sees student pop at 100T by 2015
By Neil Jerome C. Morales (The Philippine Star) | Updated March 10, 2013 - 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines - Listed education firm STI Education Systems Holdings Inc. has jumpstarted its plan to boost its student population to 100,000 by 2015.

In a regulatory filing, STI Holdings said it started the expansion program “which involves the acquisition of new properties for the expansion and upgrade of existing schools.”

STI Holdings is currently constructing a new STI Academic Center in a sprawling four-hectare property in Ortigas-Cainta that will house a new campus for 5,000 students and a new head office.

The new facility is located at the corner of ROTC Road and Ortigas Avenue Extension in Cainta.

STI Holdings said it also acquired the former site of the Philippine National Railways Hospital in Caloocan.

“The 15,000 square-meter (sqm) property located at the corner of Samson and Caimito Roads will be the site of the future STI Caloocan Academic Center,” the company said.


 
Outside of Manila, STI Holdings will also put up the 2,000-sqm. STI College Cebu near the Ayala Center in Cebu City.

“The company also plans to put up new academic centers in Las Piñas, Cubao, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Calamba, and Lucena within the next two years,” STI Holdings said.

All the expansion program is expected to boost enrolment to as much as 100,000 students in 2015, it added.

In the April to December period last year, STI Holdings’ student population rose to 68,363 from 66,740 a year ago, resulting in increased revenues from tuition and other school fees.

To date, the company has 85 schools nationwide, of which 55 are franchised and 30 are company-owned. It has 67,361 students for STI alone and 72,000 including other affiliate schools Philippine Women’s University (PWU) and iAcademy.

STI allotted P1.528 billion for capital expenditures this year and P2.39 billion for 2014.

In the first nine months last year, profits of STI Holdings more than doubled to P578.74 million from P219.32 million a year earlier as revenues climbed nearly 10 percent to P1.21 billion.

In November, STI Holdings raised P2.36 billion through a follow-on offering. Businessman Eusebio Tanco consolidated all his education assets – the STI chain of schools, a 40 percent stake in PWU and iAcademy - under STI Holdings, formerly holding firm JTH Davies.

Also injected into STI Holdings is a 20 percent interest in STI Investments, which holds Tanco’s strategic investment in PhilPlans, a leading pre-need savings program with plans dedicated to education, and PhilCare.

STI readies new S. Luzon facilities


STI EDUCATION Systems Holdings, Inc. expects to complete the new buildings for its two existing campuses in South Luzon by March next year, a top company official said in an interview on Friday last week.

     Monico V. Jacob, STI president and chief executive officer, said buildings of its campuses in Calamba, Laguna and Lucena, Quezon will be ready for the next school year.

“We are already constructing in Calamba. So the contractors have already mobilized. In Lucena, we have the plans to start this year but we have not yet mobilized,” Mr. Jacob said after the company’s annual stockholders’ meeting in Makati City.

“Both will be completed by March next year because they are only five-storey buildings. They will be ready for the next school year.”

Mr. Jacob said STI will acquire the land in Calamba from its subsidiary, PhilPlans First, Inc. The land in Lucena, on the other hand, will be leased by the company.

“The land for Calamba is currently owned by PhilPlans but we are buying it. We have yet to sign the deed of sale, but we have already started construction because we already got permission from PhilPlans to go ahead,” Mr. Jacob said.

“The one in Lucena is going to be a leased property. That is around 4,000 square meters,” he added.

“We have already existing schools. We are just putting up new buildings in those places…”

Besides expansion of its campuses in Calamba and Lucena, Mr. Jacob mentioned that the company has already completed its new campus in Cainta, Rizal.

Meanwhile, STI-Caloocan is expected to be ready by the end of this month, while construction of STI-Cubao and STI-Las Piñas are under way. Both are scheduled to be ready by March.

“So by the first semester 2014-2015, we’re ready to accept students for Cubao, Las Piñas as well as Calamba and Lucena,” he said.

Mr. Jacob said the company plans to construct new buildings in three campuses in Cagayan De Oro, Cebu and Davao cities.

STI last year said it planned to spend about P4 billion in three years on expansion of its campuses across the country.

STI, last week, acquired a 99.45% stake in West Negros University (WNU) located in Bacolod City. The school offers basic, secondary and tertiary education courses as well as graduate courses.

“The acquisition of a controlling stake in WNU will enable STI Holdings to expand its network of educational institutions as well as its course offerings at the tertiary level,” the company had said in its disclosure.

Mr. Jacob refused to disclose the value of acquisition, but said the company is open to acquiring more universities in the country.

“Actually, there are several universities that are being offered to us.

They are all in the Philippines,” he said.

“We acquire on an opportunistic basis [sic]. If something comes up, and the price is right, then we will buy.”

Asked if the company is also looking at expanding overseas, Mr. Jacob replied: “The venture abroad is something we are studying very carefully.”

“We want to concentrate in the Philippines first because we have to put up an entire department to expand abroad and that’s a lot of marketing,” he explained.

“I think the market in the Philippines is still very robust…we have not forgotten the international market, but today, our concentration is still in the Philippines.”

STI’s net income grew 41.86% to P185.27 million in the first quarter of its April 1-March 31 fiscal year from P130.60 million in the same three months last year. Revenues went up 3.12% to P330.44 million from P320.43 million, while cost and expenses fell by 1.22% to P290.84 million from P294.44 million. The company’s shares gained one centavo or 1.49% to close 68 centavos apiece yesterday from 67 centavos each last Tuesday. -- Claire-Ann Marie C. Feliciano

One of the signs of good management is lowering the cost of doing business.

They could successfully grow abroad and not just that, the current price and the opportunity in the Philippines is enough to give us good returns!

One of the many qualitative facts are :

95% students retain ratio
88% are moving to next semester

Gets na? :D

Very low PE which I think is valid, low DTE  as in very low,  p/B is also conservative @ 0.8 but the most important of all is the growth story which is achievable and targets are believable!

TP? I don't use that, only opportunity dictates my exit.

I believe this stock should be priced at 2.50
