First Philippine Holdings sets P50-B capex; First Gen corners majority

Lopez-led First Philippine Holdings Corp. (FPH) said on Friday that it is allocating P50 billion for its capital expenditures (capex) this year, 72% higher than last year’s P29 billion as its business units pursue their planned projects.

“Majority of the capex for this year will be for the energy group, First Gen [Corp.], [with] P26 billion,” FPH Chief Financial Officer Emmanuel Antonio P. Singson said during the company’s virtual stockholders’ meeting.

First Gen will be using the budget to pursue the development of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal.

FPH allotted P14 billion for Rockwell Land Corp. while First Philippine Industrial Park, Inc. will get P1 billion.

“The balance is allocated for the construction sector in big businesses in healthcare and education, and was also used for FPH investments earlier this year,” Mr. Singson said.

FPH said First Balflour Inc.’s projects will also continue its planned projects this year.

The Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway is said to be 60% complete, while the Novaliches-to-Balara Aqueduct tunneling project is 70% done. The company is eyeing to complete both in the first half of next year.

On Friday, shares of FPH at the stock exchange went up by 0.07% or five centavos to close at P70.05 each. — Keren Concepcion G. Valmonte
