STI Holdings records Php101.7 million full-year net income

2021-10-26

 

STI Holdings, owner of one of the country's largest network of schools registered a net income of Php101.7 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 compared to a net loss of Php117.5 million for the same period last year, it said in a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange.

The company and its subsidiaries attributed the positive performance to the group's cost management measures, as operating expenses dropped by 16% or Php189.0 million from Php1.21 billion to Php1.03 billion.

Based on STI Holdings' Sustainability Report, enrollment in private schools nationwide dipped in school year (SY) 2020-2021 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, a survey by STI Education Services Group (STI ESG) – the largest of the group's three educational institutions – showed that some students did not pursue education in the last SY due to financial difficulties their families and benefactors were beset with that time.

Despite this, the group still registered an enrollment of 70,223 students for SY2020-2021.

Even as enrollment dropped due to the pandemic, we purposely chose to stay committed to the education of youth in these challenging times. In doing so, we innovated our technology-enhanced programs that will enable our students to continue learning even through a different setup to ensure their health and safety,” said STI Holdings President and CEO Monico V. Jacob.

"While our learning setup has worked this past school year, we certainly are looking forward to better and brighter times ahead. With the downtrend in the number of new COVID-19 cases, we hope to be able to return soon to a flexible blended learning mode that is a mix of online and face-to-face classes and hands-on learning activities, which would benefit our students and faculty members in the long run," he added.

The group's cash and cash equivalents also went up by 76% or Php634.3 million to Php1.47 billion from Php836.2 million year-on-year. Net cash generated from operations amounted to Php714.2 million. Meanwhile, the group netted Php147.2 million from investing activities, particularly the sale of STI ESG's stake in Maestro Holdings for Php480.5 million, which in turn, funded Php281.9 million in capital expenditures.

Beginning SY2020-2021, STI Holdings' Fiscal Year starts on July 1 and ends on June 30 the following calendar year. In order to achieve comparability, the group prepared a voluntary disclosure of operating results for the twelve months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.
