- Christina Mendez, Conrado Diaz Jr. () - July 12, 2002 - 12:00am
A new group of investors, led by newspaper publisher Emilio Yap, has taken control of publicly-listed Centro Escolar University (CEU).

Yap, who also owns listed firms Manila Bulletin and Euro-Med Laboratories, as well as the Manila Hotel, was elected chairman of the CEU board, replacing long-time chairperson Lourdes Echauz, who was subsequently elevated to chairman emeritus.

In the special meeting of the board of directors, three CEU directors (Victoria Tamayo, Jose Ledesma and Antonio Picazo) also resigned from their respective posts to pave the entry of Yap and two other noted academicians: former UP chancellor Emil Javier and former Education Secretary Bro. Andrew Gonzalez of the De La Salle University.

Last July 3, the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) grossed around P560 million worth of CEU shares to effect the buy-in of the new investor group.

CEU, one of two listed academic institutions (the other is Far Eastern University), has a market capital of P2.123 billion, with total outstanding shares of over 372 million priced at P5.70 each.

The Mendiola-based school was put up in 1932 and has expanded its campus in Malolos, Bulacan. Strong in field of medical sciences, the university relies mainly on cash generated by operations, through tuition fees and other income, using these to pay dividends and provide for capital expenditures.

In early 2000, another academic institution, the Mapua Institute of Technology, was taken over by the Yuchengco group through listed firm iPeople Inc. (formerly Petrofields).

STI gets a BID!  Traded at 0.39, new year's High

STI / STI Education Systems ... from mid-2020: 2022: 10d:


STI Education press release - 1

"STI Holdings posts P579 million in 9-month period net income as face- to-face classes drive enrollments"

The steady transition back to face-to-face classes continues to bode well for the owner of one of the country's largest networks of schools, STI Holdings, as it reported another increase in profits brought about by the rise in enrollments. In a quarterly disclosure with the Philippine Stock Exchange filed Monday, STI Holdings said it posted a net income of P579.3 million for the nine-month period ended March 31, 2023, which is 95% higher than the net income of P297.2 million recorded for the same period last year.

STI Holdings' Fiscal Year (FY) starts on July of every year and ends on June 30 of the following year. STI Holdings also generated gross revenues of P2.4 billion, which was 27% higher than the P1.9 billion revenues recorded for the same period last year due to the increase in the number of enrollees and improvement in the enrollment mix of the Group for School Year (SY) 2022-2023. Tuition and other school fees, which were recorded at P2.1 billion for the said nine-month period, increased by P422.2 million or 25% from the same period last year. The number of new students enrolled in Commission on Higher Education (CHED) programs improved by 17% or 3,707 from 22,142 to 25,849 for SY 2021-2022 and SY 2022-2023, respectively. STI Holdings said its schools now have a total of 94,312 enrollees for SY 2022-2023, which is 14% or 11,683 higher than the 82,629 students it took in during SY 2021-2022. "STI Education Services Group's wholly-owned and franchised schools registered an enrollment of 81,697 students, 8,947 or 12% more than the enrollment in SY 2021-2022. Percentage-wise, STI WNU registered the highest increase at 35% for this SY compared to last SY," it said.

Schools also reported revenues from other sources as a result of increased enrollments and more frequent face-to-face classes. On the other hand, STI Holdings said the resumption of face-to-face classes has likewise led to increased support for more student activities and programs. Its schools have also continued to invest in technology that will help with the education of students, notably increased subscription costs for Microsoft, eLMS, and Amadeus software for SY 2022-2023.

Chris Hill, Chief Strategy Officer, and Head of Asia Pacific at Cintana, said, "We are delighted to be collaborating with the Mapúa schools, whom we selected as our Philippine champions, because of their long- standing reputation for innovation and academic excellence. The recent ranking of Mapúa as one of the top 4 Philippine universities, together with UP, Ateneo and LaSalle, in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, is clear evidence of the quality of a Mapúan education."
