The growths of the international students are significantly increased every year in Malaysia which brings much business opportunity associated with Malaysia’s education industry. Mr… Bernard, the owner of Became is contemplating a sale of the canteen at BBC University at ARM 500,000 as he plans to migrate to Australia. The canteen operated for 1 5 years which serves breakfast and lunch at reasonable prices for 10,000 students nowadays. Moreover, there is no other competitor within KM which shows a great competitive advantage.
It looks likely a good/worth deal on the surface but no one can assure that. Therefore, the business overview of Became, the canteen in BBC University will be evaluated in this business valuation report. Moreover, asset valuation, market valuation and income-based business valuation will be covered in the financial analysis part in this report to further examine the real value of Became. Opinion of Value Based on the review of the information provided, I’m of the opinion a reasonable range of value for Became, as of 31 January 2012: ARM 400,000 to ARM 500,000 The most valuable selling price
ARM 400,000 The reasonable selling price ARM 450,000 The maximum selling price ARM 500,000 Offered Price Among the three techniques applied, income-based business valuation (ROI method) has been chosen as the best approach to estimate the selling price of Became as ROI is able to predict the periods required to get back the return on investment. As the findings from ROI method at ARM 400,000 is not far from the offered price at ARM 500,000 thus the buyer can consider this deal seriously.
Moreover, research in education industry analysis in this report showed huge potential of growth in Malaysia’s education industry as the numbers of international students are increasing every year which directly impact the canteen business in University. Therefore, the business has broad future market opportunities which also supported by the findings with market valuation method. It estimates the selling price of comparable business which is ARM 479,166. 67 for Became business. Therefore, it is worth to take it as the value of Became proved to be close to the offered price.
For my recommendations, the business is able to achieve higher net profit simply by reduce the canteen’s turnover rate which is increasing every year. Moreover, huge intake of international students in recent years give alerts that the current foods and drinks menu have to be improved significantly to satisfy the international students as well as the local students. Therefore, huge potential are clearly showed although there are some issues in Became. However, my opinion of value is subjected to the assumption and limited conditions.

Business Overview History of Company Mr… Bernard has been operating his own canteen named Became in BBC University since 1997. With 15 years of experiences, the canteen is able to serves breakfast and lunch at reasonable prices for students and staffs in BBC University. In 1997, Mr… Bernard invested ARM 60,000 to start this business and hired 3 staffs to serves around 1 ,OHO students and staffs. As the number of international students dramatically increases since 2006, Mr… Bernard has hired up to 10 staffs to cope with the rising demands.
With the increased numbers of staffs, Mr… Bernard decided to not only prepares ready cook foods but also “fresh” cook foods. According to Paranoia Antitank & Swastikas Chatterer (2012), college canteens are no longer the choice of students as it always with minimal furniture. The cafes and coffee shops are the latest hangouts for dents and they don’t mind spending more money for the luxury such as air- conditioned, comfy seating and environment.
Thus, Mr… Bernard decided to invest heavily in equipment, furniture and tools in 2007 to attract more students to eat in canteen and ease the process of food preparation. Other than changing and improve the environment in canteen, Mr… Bernard also add on new variety of freshly cook/ made foods and drinks such as riot canal, special fried rice/noodles and fruit Juices to give more variety of choices for students. Last but not least, the working hours of Became are Mono-Fri… (7 a. M. To 3 p. . ) and Sat (7 a. M. To 1 p. M. ). Besides that, S. W. O.
T analysis has used to analyze the internal environment of Became.

Fruits The services of canteen have improved since the dramatic increases of international students since 6 years ago to provide more variety of choices. The menu consists some of the Malaysian delights such as Curry MME, NASA Lemma, Riot Canal and also Western food such as chicken chop. To ensure the quality of the services, all of the as above, students can enjoy freshly cook/made foods and drinks simply by order from the cashier then a queue number will be given for food collection later.
The queue numbers are displayed on few TV screens in the canteen. Moreover, students ho prefer time-saving can Just queue up and take foods and drinks from the ready cook/made food stalls then precede to the cashier for payment. Education industry analysis and its impact on canteen business Malaysia is world’s 1 lath largest exporter of educational services with over 90,000 international student private education institutions enrolment rate in 2011 (Ottawa, 2013).
From figure 1, it shows the enrolments of international students which have increased from 26,569 in 2000 to 91,670 in 2011. This situation is one of the main factors which lead to dramatic increase of international students in BBC University.

For further analysis, 90% of international students are from some of Europe countries such as United Kingdom, France, Ireland, Astrakhan and Russia while the 10% left are from United States, Iraq and others. As we can see by now, the canteen needs to be more diversified in service provided to fulfill the students from different background. With he increased numbers of students, the BBC University canteen appeared to be a good business opportunity.
Thus, the impact to the canteen is huge especially when the numbers of international dents is more than local students in BBC University. For example, the services provided in canteen are focus on Malaysian Delights which may only satisfy the local student’s choices but not the international students which lead them to spend outside the University. Although university education in Malaysia expenses are expensive to Malaysian, but various options are available such as scholarships and study loans from the Public Service Department POP), The STAR Education Fund, Sin Chew Education Fund and more.
Since 1st July 1997, the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PPTP) was established with the mission to manage funds for the purpose of higher education to achieve the objective of no student should be denied access to higher education due to financial reasons (PPTP, n. D. ). Therefore, local students are able to access to higher education with the financial support not only from companies but also the Ministry of Higher Education (MOE) 2013. It meaner that the numbers of local students in BBC University are expected to increase every year.
From the analysis above, the opportunity of canteen business is clearly seen as the attention customers are already there. However, the changes of university lifestyle in Malaysia could be another threat on the canteen business. Nowadays, the university students are willing to pay more for their meals in cafes and restaurants outside the University which are popular and comfort in environment (Paranoia Antitank & Swastikas Chatterer, 2012).
