PLDT braces for sustained decline in profits

PHILIPPINE LONG Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) expects profits to fall by another 5.13% this year after already dropping as anticipated in 2011 amid continued price wars, an official yesterday said.

The telco has pegged its profit guidance for 2012 at P37 billion versus the P39-billion consolidated core net income recorded last year, PLDT Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan said.

Last year’s performance was 7% lower than 2010’s even as it hit target levels.

“The decline in core net income was a result of lower service revenues and higher operating expenses, partially offset by a higher equity share in the earnings of the Manila Electric Co.,” PLDT said.

Meanwhile, consolidated reported net income plunged by 21% to P31.7 billion, from P40.2 billion in the previous year.

Moving forward, profits are seen to fall again this year.

“There are three factors: [One is] pressures emanating from the change of the group’s [revenue stream], from texting to broadband data. The margin of the new business could be lower,” Mr. Pangilinan said at a briefing.

“[And] we see that competition will continue to be tough and there will be higher subsidies to respond to the competitiveness’ pressures,” he added.

“The margins from texting... has continued to be squeezed because of these unlimited packages,” he said.

Finally, PLDT also expects to incur additional expenses for the alignment its its business with newly acquired of Digital Telecommunications, Inc. (Digitel).

“For the year 2012, we will be aligning the operations of Digitel and PLDT. Certain expenses will have to be incurred in terms of facilities and equipment as a result of that integration,” Mr. Pangilinan said.

In a separate disclosure, Digitel, which is set to be delisted on March 26, said it recorded a P63.9-billion reported net loss for 2011 due to impairment of assets as against brisk advances in technology, modification of the term’s of the company’s exchangeable bond, and losses arising from foreign exchange valuation.

But by 2013, Mr. Pangilinan said that PLDT should be back on its “upward” trajectory and hit P42 billion in profits.

He went on to disclose that PLDT has allotted a capital expenditure of P38 billion for this year, higher than P31 billion in 2011 for the “completion of the of the network modernization program.”

“We are developing peso- and dollar-funding activities. The next peso note for Smart Communications, Inc. is about P5.5 billion pesos this March or April,” PLDT Senior Vice-President Anabelle L. Chua said, referring to the telco’s mobile service unit.

PLDT to save P8B in capex

MANILA, Philippines - Philippine Long DistanceTelephone Co. (PLDT) expects to save P8 billion in capital expenditures this year while raising service quality levels by pursuing synergies with its recently-acquired subsidiary Digital Telecommunications Philippines Inc. (Digitel) and its mobile company Sun Cellular.

According to PLDT president Napoleon Nazareno, these capex savings represent 17 percent of the original P46 billion capex for PLDT, Smart Communications, and Digitel/Sun this year. “We are doing a lot of capex optimization and identifying cost efficiencies,” he said.

PLDT completed the acquisition of Digitel in October last year and the harmonization of its operations with those of PLDT is currently underway.

Nazareno added that there will also be savings in excess of P500 million in operations every year once cell site sharing and site consolidation activities have been fully implemented.

“We have so far identified 160 cell sites for co-location and 850 sites for consolidation of planned and existing Smart and Sun facilities while 22 sites have been identified to co-locate Digitel operations in PLDT facilities to free up rented properties,” he said.

Nazareno noted that the acquisition of Digitel has allowed the PLDT Group to expand and enhance its product offerings and thereby fortify the platform that should allow revenues to grow. “We expect neither a quick nor easy transition but we will continue to refine and redefine our products and services, in both our legacy and new businesses. In the meantime, we are pleased that our network modernization program has already raised our network performance, with our subscribers enjoying a significantly enhanced customer experience,” he added.

He said that the synergies created among PLDT, Smart, and Digitel/Sun will help the group reduce cost through rationalization of expenditures, alignment of processes, and improvement of operational efficiency.

On top of cost savings, PLDT also expects to improve service quality to customers based on the synergies created among the three companies. - Mary Ann Ll. Reyes

PLDT to pare down capex by trimming cell sites

PHILIPPINE LONG Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) has lowered its capital expenditure for this year to P38 billion from the earlier programmed P46 million, deciding instead to consolidate spending with recently acquired Digital Telecommunications Philippines, Inc.

PLDT President Napeleon B. Nazareno said in a statement the trimmed expenditure was a result of a decision to, among others, share the cell sites and facilities among PLDT, Smart Communications and Digitel, the operator of Sun Cellular.

The lowered capex, however, is still higher than P31 billion programmed in 2011.

“We have so far identified 160 cell sites for co-location and 850 sites for consolidation of planned and existing Smart and Sun facilities while 22 sites have been identified to co-locate Digitel operations in PLDT facilities to free up rented properties,” he said.

Mr. Nazareno added that there would also be savings in excess of P500 million in operations every year once cell site sharing and site consolidation activities have been fully implemented.

“The synergies created among PLDT, Smart and Digitel or Sun Cellular will help the group reduce cost through rationalization of expenditures, alignment of processes and improvement of operational efficiency,” he added.

Regulators approved PLDT’s acquisition of Digitel in October last year, giving the dominant telco 70% of the market and leaving Ayala-led Globe Telecom, Inc. 30%.

PLDT said also claimed that the synergy is expected to improve the networks’ signal.

For example, Sun’s 2G and 3G reach will reportedly expand now that it has access to PLDT’s network.

In a related development, Digitel yesterday said its shares would no longer be traded starting March 21 to give way to its delisting by March 26

Digitel’s said its request for a suspension of trading of shares was made to ensure the settlement of all transactions prior to the effective date of said delisting, which has been approved by the Philippines Stock Exchange last February.

Shares of PLDT stood unchanged at P2,758 when the stock market closed yesterday.

PLDT sees P8-billion savings from cost sharing with Digitel

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) Group expects to save P8 billion in capital expenditures (capex) this year brought about by the synergies of its two cellular units, Smart Communications Inc. and Digital Telecommunications Philippines Inc. (Digitel), which operates the Sun Cellular brand.

The group originally programmed P46 billion in capex this year. The P8-billion savings represent 17 percent of the original capex set aside for the group for 2012. “We are doing a lot of capex optimization and identifying cost efficiencies,” said PLDT President Napoleon L. Nazareno.

Nazareno added that there will also be savings in excess of P500 million in operations every year once cell-site sharing and site consolidation activities have been fully implemented.

“We have so far identified 160 cell sites for co-location and 850 sites for consolidation of planned and existing Smart and Sun facilities while 22 sites have been identified to co-locate Digitel operations in PLDT facilities to free up rented properties,” he said.

He said the synergies created among PLDT, Smart and Sun Cellular will help the group reduce cost through rationalization of expenditures, alignment of processes, and improvement of operational efficiency.

On top of cost savings, PLDT also expects to improve service quality to customers based on the synergies created among the three companies. Nazareno cited Sun Cellular’s 2G (second-generation) and 3G (third-generation) coverage that were expanded through sharing of radio resources. Such convergence will expand the reach of Sun Cellular’s 2G signal to 100 percent of cities and towns, including those from Mindanao, and improve its 3G coverage to 90 percent by the end of the year.

Nazareno said there will also be improved customer experience for fixed line and internet subscribers of Digitel with the integration of the Digitel network to PLDT’s robust infrastructure.

“The integrated and interconnected PLDT-Digitel and Smart-Sun networks will result in service resiliency and diversity that will further strengthen the PLDT group network for greater reliability and continuity of service,” he added.

Smart secures P5.5-billion loan to refinance debt

SMART COMMUNICATIONS, Inc. has secured a P5.5-billion loan from 18 lenders to refinance old debt amid lower interest rates, the company said in statement yesterday.

The mobile services arm of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) said it priced the five-year and 10-year fixed rate notes with “18 primary institutional lenders” last March 14 ahead of issuance on March 19.

“The proceeds will be used primarily to refinance existing debt obligations. With the current low level of interest rates, the transaction is expected to result in substantial savings for Smart Communications,” the statement read.

First Metro Investment Corp. (FMIC) was appointed as the lead arranger and sole bookrunner for the transaction.

“The notes issue was 1.3 times oversubscribed, with books reaching P7.4 billion in orders, demonstrating investor confidence in Smarts Communication’s financial strength and market leadership,” the company said.

The lenders were a mix of commercial and savings banks, trust banking groups, insurance companies and investment funds, it added.

In the same statement, FMIC President Roberto Juanchito T. Dispo said the oversubscription reflected investors’ confidence in Smart.

Earlier, its parent PLDT had decided to slash the group’s spending for 2012 to P38 billion from the P46 billion earlier programmed. It decided share infrastructure among Smart Communications, PLDT and newly acquired Digital Telecommunications Philippines, Inc. (Digitel).

PLDT seeks approval for issuance of shares


THE PHILIPPINE Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) will seek again the approval of its stockholders today for the issuance of new voting shares after it failed to get the shareholders’ consent last year due to lack of quorum.

In a disclosure dated January, PLDT said it would ask shareholders’ approval of the issuance of 150 million preferred shares, with voting rights that could only be subscribed and owned by Filipinos. The special stockholders’ meeting will be held today.

The move is expected to lower total foreign equity in PLDT’s expanded voting shares -- 45% of which will make up the issuance -- to some 36% from the current 64%, according to earlier reports.

This comes as the Supreme Court en banc ruled last year that the 40% foreign ownership cap set under the Constitution should be reckoned from voting stock and not outstanding capital stock.

Sought for comment, PLDT spokesperson Ramon S. Isberto said the approval of the stockholders would address the equity limits issue, but reiterated that the company complies with the law.

“Our legal position remains the same, PLDT’s equity structure is in compliance with relevant laws. This (issuance of 150 million voting shares), however, provides the company a means to address the issue if it becomes necessary,” Mr. Isberto told reporters in an interview yesterday.

The company, in Sept. 20 last year, sought for the approval of its stockholders, but the special meeting was cancelled because of lack of quorum.

PLDT had said in a disclosure that “while proxies had been secured from holders of shares equivalent to 73.27% of outstanding common stock, the number of preferred shares necessary to bring the total shares... to two-thirds (2/3) of the total outstanding capital stock... will most likely not be secured.”

This prompted the company to buy back all outstanding shares of its 10% cumulative convertible preferred stock, Series A to FF, effective Jan. 19.

PLDT Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan previously said in an interview that the move would ensure that a quorum will be met and the decision can be made to issue up to 150 million preferred shares with voting rights to Filipino investors.

Meanwhile, the company is looking to book P37 billion core net income this year from P39 billion last year amid tight competition in the telco industry and lower margins from broadband business.

Core net income in the company last year was 7% lower than the previous year.

Meanwhile, consolidated reported net income plunged by 21% to P31.7 billion, from P40.2 billion in the previous year.

PLDT shares closed 2.63% or P70 lower at P2,594 apiece yesterday.

Moody’s lowers PLDT credit rating by one notch

DEBT WATCHER Moody’s Investors Service has downgraded Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co., Inc.’s (PLDT) local currency rating by a notch to bring it closer to its host country’s score.
Moody’s yesterday said it downgraded PLDT’s local currency debt score to Baa3 from Baa2, medium-grade ratings which signal moderate credit risk.

“The rating action reflects Moody’s view that as PLDT is predominantly a domestic entity, with substantially all of its revenues derived and assets based in the Philippines (rated Ba2), its fundamental creditworthiness needs to more closely reflect shared risks that potentially exist between it and the sovereign,” the debt watcher said in a statement.

It clarified that the downgrade is not an indication of any deterioration in PLDT’s credit fundamentals or any change in sovereign risk, and that the telco’s foreign currency rating was retained at Baa3.

But Moody’s noted that while PLDT’s credit quality remains balanced despite a sizeable recent acquisition and an accelerated capex program, the credit risk has become evident for companies that are based in the Philippines.

“The transmission of credit risk from a sovereign to issuers domiciled in that country has become increasingly evident, as was the case during the financial crisis of 2008 and, more recently, during the European sovereign crisis,” Moody’s said.

“As a result, Moody’s has narrowed the rating gap between the sovereign and PLDT to two-notches to better reflect this long-term transmission of credit risk,” it added.

PLDT, which last year acquired rival Digital Telecommunications Philippines, Inc., has programmed P38 billion in capital spending for this year, higher than P31 billion in 2011, to complete its network modernization program.

PLDT Senior Vice-President Anabelle L. Chua earlier said that the company was developing peso and dollar funding activities to finance its capex.

Both local and foreign currency ratings were assigned a stable outlook.

Laura Acres, Moody’s vice-president and a senior credit officer, said PLDT will have to show its operations are independent of the domestic economy if it is to bag a rating way above that assigned to the Philippines.

“We continue to take into account PLDT’s strong fundamental credit quality, evidenced by its manageable leverage and excellent liquidity, by rating it two notches above the sovereign’s rating of Ba2,” Ms. Acres said.

“Nonetheless, we believe that the extent to which the company depends on the wider macroeconomic performance of the Philippines no longer justifies a three-notch differential between the two,” she added.

PLDT appeal of equity ruling slated this week

THE PHILIPPINE Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) is slated to deliver its oral arguments tomorrow to contest a Supreme Court ruling on its alleged violation of foreign equity limits.

In a text message yesterday, Jose Midas P. Marquez, court administrator and spokesperson said: “The oral argument for PLDT has been set on Tuesday in Baguio City.”

This is where the Supreme Court en banc’s summer session is routinely held.

The PLDT on July 15 had filed a motion for reconsideration after the high court en banc, through a 10-3 vote, ruled that in determining the level of foreign ownership in PLDT, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) should use only common voting shares in assessing the capital stock of the firm.

Under this interpretation, foreigners own 64% of PLDT, way above the 40% limits for public utilities.

The PLDT Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan had warned in a court filing that the decision will turn off foreign investors and affect the economy as a whole.

Mr. Pangilinan also claimed that the redefinition would have adverse repercussions on partially nationalized industries.

In the meantime, the PLDT has made preparations in case the court affirms its earlier ruling.

Last March, the company secured its stockholders’ approval to issue new voting shares in a bid to lower foreign ownership levels.

The approval allows the firm to issue 150 million preferred shares with voting rights to the PLDT’s beneficial trust fund to lower PLDT’s total foreign equity to some 35% from the current 64%.

The new voting shares would only be issued once the Supreme Court finalized its ruling on the foreign equity cap.

SC to hold oral arguments on PLDT foreign ownership

MANILA, Philippines - The Supreme Court (SC) will hear oral arguments on the case involving the extent of foreign ownership of telephone giant Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) Co. at 2pm today.

The case is in connection with a petition filed by PLDT stockholder Wilson P. Gamboa against former Finance chief Margarito Teves, and several others. Gamboa claimed that foreign ownership of PLDT between 2003-2005 was already at 60 percent, a violation of the 40-percent ceiling mandated by the 1987 Constitution.

In an en banc advisory, the high court announced that each party will be given a maximum of 20 minutes to present their respective arguments on the following issues:

- whether the term "capital" in Sec. 11, Art. XII of the 1987 Constitution refers only to shares of stock with the right to vote in the election of directors (common shares) or to all kinds of shares of stock;
- if the term "capital" refers only to shares of stock with the right to vote in the election of directors, will this have any retroactive effect to affect such shares owned by foreigners prior to such ruling; and
- whether PLDT and its foreign stockholders are indispensable parties in the resolution of the legal issue on the definition of the term "capital", and if so, whether the high court has acquired jurisdiction over the persons of PLDT and its foreign stockholders.

In a Decision dated June 28, 2011, the Supreme Court held that the term "capital" in Sec. 11, Art XII of the Constitution refers only to shares of stock entitled to vote, in the subject case, only to common shares "and not to the total outstanding capital stock (common and non-voting preferred shares).

The high court also directed the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to determine whether PLDT committed a violation on the constitutional provision which limits foreign ownership of domestic public utilities to 40-percent, applying this definition of the term "capital."

PLDT and its chairman Manuel Pangilinan filed a motion for reconsideration (MR). PLDT claimed that Gamboa's mandamus suit was infirm as there was no neglected duty alleged of the SEC. PLDT further argued that it is the Executive branch that decides how to interpret and apply the term "capital" in the Constitution.

The SEC also filed its own MR citing a "procedural defect" even as it said it agreed with the "substantive aspect of the Decision." The SEC said that respondent former SEC Chairperson Fe Barin was no longer the head of the agency, and the commission, as a collegial body, was not impleaded in the case. -I Reformina

SC grills PLDT lawyer on foreign ownership

MANILA, Philippines - The Supreme Court (SC) grilled Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company's (PLDT) lawyer on the telephone giant's position that Filipinos still control the company in spite of foreigners owning 64 percent of its common shares.

PLDT lawyer Victor Lazatin told the high court during Wednesday's oral arguments at the Supreme Court compound in Baguio City that in spite of this figure, the management of the company still rests with Filipinos since only 2 out of the 14 members of the PLDT Board of Directors are foreigners.

With PLDT's admission that only 36 percent of its common shares is owned by Filipinos, Chief Justice Renato Corona asked Lazatin to explain the relationship between majority ownership and management control.

In response, Lazatin said: "In a corporation you have the stockholders who are the beneficiaries of the dividends and you have the Board of Directors who have management control."

Associate Justice Jose Perez, however, pointed out that even if majority of the members of the PLDT Board of Directors are Filipinos, they may still be overruled by the foreign owners of the non-voting, preferred shares allowed to vote in major corporate decisions.

PLDT sought a reconsideration of the high court's ruling last June 28, 2011 that defined the term "capital" in Sec. 11, Art. XII of the Constitution as shares of stocks entitled to vote, or common shares, and not as total outstanding capital stock. The ruling also directed the SEC to determine whether PLDT committed a violation on the constitutional provision which limits foreign ownership of domestic public utilities to 40 percent, applying this definition of the term "capital."

Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, who penned the decision, pointed out that since the 1935 Constitution up to the 1987 Constitution, at least 60 percent of a public utility's voting stock must be owned by citizens of the Philippines.

Associate Justice Presbitero Velasco, Jr., who dissented in the June 28, 2011 ruling, said restricting the term "capital" to voting shares did not guarantee that all of the telephone firm's non-voting shares may not be owned by foreigners.

"In the process, they (foreigners) may have the majority in the outstanding stocks as a whole," Velasco pointed out.

For her part, Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro told Lazatin that if PLDT's definition of "capital" was adopted, which refers to all types of shares, voting and nonvoting, common and preferred, all voting shares may go to the foreigners.

Lazatin, however, said applying the high court's definition of "capital" posed a "possible problem."

"You can just imagine.. for national industries, we can issue preferred shares to foreigners because we said non-voting is not capital," he said.

Lazatin further argued that this definition would "discourage foreign investments and expose the Philippine government to investment suits."

"It will affect so many industries, it is not just PLDT that will be affected," he said.

Lazatin also pointed out that petitioner Wilson Gamboa did not sue PLDT nor the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), but the telephone firm's officials and former SEC chair Fe Barin, in their personal capacity.

The oral arguments will continue on June 26. The high court will invite amici curiae (friends of the court) Bernardo Villegas and Joaquin Bernas, members of the 1986 Constitutional Commission which drafted the 1987 Constitution. - I Reformina

PLDT run by Filipinos, Supreme Court told

BAGUIO CITY—Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) insisted to the Supreme Court that it is controlled by Filipinos and not foreigners, as it sought to reverse the high court’s 2011 ruling ordering the telecommunications giant to return control of the company to its Filipino stockholders.

The high tribunal held oral arguments on the case during its summer sessions here on Tuesday.

Lawyer Victor Lazatin, counsel for PLDT president Napoleon Nazareno, said the high court had “relied on untested facts and data” when it issued the ruling that he said may have implications on how foreign investors are to be treated in the country.

Lazatin said the decision “ignored the reality on the ground [of] a self-reliant and independent PLDT effectively controlled by Filipinos.” He said only two foreigners sit on the PLDT board of directors.

In June 28, 2011 decision, the high court ruled that PLDT had violated the constitutional provision on foreign ownership in a transaction involving the government’s sequestered shares of stock in PLDT.

PLDT stockholder Wilson Gamboa went to the high court in 2007 asking it to nullify the government’s sale of its PLDT shares  to Metro Pacific Assets Holdings (MPAH), an affiliate of the Hong Kong-based First Pacific Co. Ltd. (First Pacific).

Gamboa ruling

Gamboa, who died in October 2011, argued that the sale gave PLDT’s foreign investors more than half of the company’s controlling shares in violation of the Constitution which restricts foreign ownership of assets in the Philippines to 40 percent, leaving the dominant 60 percent to Filipino control.

In its 2011 ruling, the high court noted that foreign investors owned shares of stock in PLDT that gave them the right to vote on company decisions, whereas more Filipinos owned shares that do not give them the same voting rights.

This was because of Presidential Decree 217 issued by the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos which required all PLDT phone applicants to subscribe to non-voting preferred shares to pay for the investment cost of installing a telephone line.

To correct the discrepancy, the high court defined the term “capital” to refer to shares of stock that are entitled to vote in the election of company directors.

In the PLDT’s case, it was defined to refer only to common shares and not to the total outstanding capital stock or common and nonvoting preferred shares of the company combined.

SEC probe

This meant that 64 percent of PLDT was owned by foreigners (holding common shares) in violation of constitutional limits to foreign ownership. (But if preferred shares are included in determining the company’s ownership structure, 87 percent of PLDT is owned by Filipinos and 13 percent by foreigners.)

In its ruling, the high court directed the SEC to investigate the PLDT’s ownership structure to find out whether it was in violation of the foreign capital limit based on the tribunal’s definition of capital, and if in violation, to impose the appropriate sanctions under the law.

Lazatin told Tuesday’s hearing the decision ignored the fact that if “capital” would be defined as all forms of shares, PLDT had not violated the Constitution because it meant that 86.3 percent of its shares of stock are Filipino-owned and only 13.7 percent are foreign-controlled.

“If not reconsidered, the Gamboa decision will affect ’vested rights’ of PLDT and its foreign shareholders. It changes the rules in the middle of the game. It sets back [by] two steps our quest for economic development and prosperity for our people,” Lazatin said.

He said the Gamboa ruling would “push our country out of the radar screen of foreign investors,” and “expose the government to investment suits” owing to bilateral treaties and contracts it may end up breaking.

Lazatin took the brunt of the justices’ questioning. Associate Justices Antonio Carpio and Presbitero Velasco Jr. asked the lawyer to explore all historical definitions of the term “capital,” including how it is defined by past and present Philippine laws, in order to show to the court how it may have misjudged the situation of the telecommunications giant.

Aside from Lazatin, the other lawyers who participated in the hearing were counsel for Manuel Pangilinan, the PLDT chairman, and those representing the SEC and the Office of the Solicitor General.

Lawyer Pablito Sanidad, who supported Gamboa’s suit, also turned up with his legal team. Sanidad and his brother, lawyer Arno Sanidad, were petitioners-in-intervention which the court had allowed to participate in Gamboa’s suit.-V Cabreza

PLDT bags nod to hike Digitel stake

PHILIPPINE LONG Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) is poised to cement a nearly 100% ownership of Digital Telecommunications Philippines, Inc. (Digitel) after corporate regulators yesterday approved the valuation of Digitel bonds ahead of their conversion into equity.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), in a filing, said it had approved the valuation of P14.64 billion worth of Digitel bonds held by PLDT.

The zero-coupon bonds referred to are the 2013 and 2014 convertible bonds issued by Digitel to its parent JG Summit Holdings, Inc. and purchased by PLDT last year.

The transaction will increase PLDT’s stake in Digitel from a little over half of the total shares to 99.5%, said Ramon R. Isberto, the dominant telco’s spokesman.

Digitel also gained the SEC’s nod for its authorized capital stock hike to P25 billion from P9 billion to accommodate the “full-conversion... of the convertible bonds,” the document further showed.

PLDT opens data center in Subic

Dominant network Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) is bolstering its product line for corporate clients in Luzon as it supports the growth of businesses by helping them modernize and automate their operations.

In a statement on Wednesday, PLDT said it had opened its second “VITRO” data center in Subic Bay Freeport north of Metro Manila.

The company said the move would benefit “businesses based in Metro Manila and Northern Luzon in terms of providing continuity, data recovery and secure data and information management.”

“PLDT Subic Vitro data center provides enterprises a very secure location to host all their data and information, which is supported by unmatched ICT experience,” said Eric Alberto, PLDT executive vice president and head of the company’s enterprise and international carrier business.

“Through PLDT’s advanced telecommunications infrastructure, the data center is able to provide end-to-end IT infrastructure solutions and multiple options for organizations’ bandwidth requirements more cost-effectively,” Alberto said.

PLDT’s first data center facility was put up in Pasig City. It has received numerous accolades in recognition of its reliable and robust services.

The new facility in Subic would offer companies full management and telecommunications services essential in business such as co-location, server hosting, disaster recovery, data security and network management.

Housed in PLDT’s SubicTel facilities, the new data center will employ top-of-the-line systems for power supply, security, cooling, fire protection and monitoring to ensure that equipment runs smoothly. The new facility will also be maintained by PLDT’s in-house staff of engineers.

“The VITRO data center in Subic assures stability, security and reliability for the ICT demands of our clients, coupled with PLDT’s unparalleled robust domestic fiber network in the country, as well as robust wireless connectivity,” said Jovy Hernandez, head of PLDT’s Alpha Enterprise division.-P Montecillo

PLDT to shrink work force after merger



PHILIPPINE LONG Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) expects to pay out some P1.4 billion in severance benefits as it moves to downsize its work force after acquiring Digital Telecommunications Philippines, Inc. (Digitel) last year.

Already, 850 employees or 18% of Digitel’s headcount, have availed themselves of a voluntary retirement program, PLDT Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan said in a briefing yesterday.

“We reduced [manpower] in the fixed line business of Digitel in the first quarter, and a slightly smaller number will be undertaken with respect to PLDT,” Mr. Pangilinan said without elaborating.

PLDT President Napoleon B. Nazareno, in the same briefing, said that the company will spend “up to P400 million” for Digitel employees and “around P1 billion” for PLDT employees’ early retirement.

“I think the assimilation of Digitel and Sun Cellular will continue [in the latter] part of this year. There will be certain rationalization measures that will still be undertaken in the course of 2012...” Mr. Pangilinan said.

Regulators in October last year approved PLDT’s take over of Digitel, giving the dominant telco 70% of the market share and leaving Ayala-led Globe Telecom, Inc. with 30%.

Dim outlook

This comes as the company has maintained its forecast of a profit drop for 2012. PLDT reiterated its profit guidance of P37 billion for this year, down from the P39 billion in 2011 after already recording a 12% drop in core net income in the first quarter.

“We expect this first quarter number to be trending towards the next three quarters,” Mr. Pangilinan said.

PLDT’s core net income from January to March stood at P9.3 billion, down 12.26% from P10.6 billion last year.

“Core net income declined as a result of higher expenses that reduced service revenue gains, a lower equity share in the earnings of the Manila Electric Company or Beacon Electric Asset Holdings, Inc. and higher provision for income taxes,” the company said in a disclosure.

Reported net income for the first quarter slid by 6% to P10.1 billion from P10.7 billion in the same period last year.

“But we are seeing some signs and stability in operations and financial results that should give us the platform to grow and increase our profitability by 2013,” he added.

Mr. Pangilinan had said that PLDT is expecting its core net income to be back at P39 billion next year, and rebound to 2010’s P41-billion profit by 2014.

PLDT’s consolidated service revenues for the first three months of year went up by 13% to P42.8 billion from P37.7 billion while expenses went up by 28% to P30.64 billion from P24 billion in the previous year.

TV investments

In a related development, the company said its wholly-owned subsidiary ePLDT, will be investing P6 billion in Mediaquest Holdings, Inc.,in the form of Philippine Depositary Receipts to sustain the momentum of TV5 and Cignal TV, a paid satellite TV provider.

Mediaquest Holdings Chief Executive Ray C. Espinosa said TV5’s audience share rose to 19% in April from 15.6% in December.

Mediaquest Holdings, Inc., a unit of the Beneficial Trust Fund of PLDT, has a minority stake in BusinessWorld.

8 PH companies named top firms in Southeast Asia (includes TEL)

MANILA, Philippines - An investment publications has named SM Investments Corp. (SMIC), Ayala Corp., Megaworld, Banco de Oro Unibank (BDO), Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI), Globe Telecom, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) and San Miguel Corp. (SMC) as the top companies in the country.

Hong Kong-based Alpha Southeast Asia made the announcement after it revealed the results of its second annual poll to find Southeast Asia’s top companies. The magazine said the awards are based on tallied votes among 460 investors, pension funds, hedge funds, equity and fixed income brokers and analysts with investment interests in the region. Companies in each country were ranked on their financial management, adherence to corporate governance, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and investor relations’ strategy, transparency and disclosure.

Jose Sio, chief financial officer (CFO at SM Investments, was named as the best CFO in the Philippines.

Across the region, the award for Best CFO in Southeast Asia went to Jeann Low, CFO at SingTel. The award for the Best Annual Report in Southeast Asia went to Keppel Corp. while the award for the Strongest Commitment to Sustainable Energy in Southeast Asia went to Thai Oil.

In its statement, Alpha Southeast Asia also said a distinguishing feature of its poll is that it not only names investor favorites, but also names the companies perceived to have “poor management access and investor relations (IR)” by the same group of investors. In the Philippines, Lepanto Consolidated Mining, Metropoitan Bank & Trust Co. and Security Bank Corp. were noted for their “poor and unpredictable investor relations’ strategy.”

Most organized investor relations went to BDO, Megaworld and SMIC while companies with the best senior management IR support are BPI, Globe Telecom and PLDT.

Firms cited for having the strongest adherence to corporate governance are Ayala Corp., Megaworld and SMIC while those with the most consistent dividend policy are Globe Telecom, PLDT and SMC.

Companies with the best strategic CSR are Ayala Corp, San Miguel Corp. and SMIC; the most improved IR citation went to SMC. The best annual report in the Philippines award was bagged by Ayala Corp.

Now in its sixth year of publication, Alpha Southeast Asia is an institutional investment magazine focused on Southeast Asia’s banking and capital markets.-  A Amio

PLDT eyes TV stations in Indonesia

MANILA, Philippines - Amid an increasingly global marketplace for media content, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) will forge ahead with plans to go regional as it continues to be on the prowl for foreign television stations to add to its media empire.

On the sidelines of the Earth Resources Conference in Hong Kong Thursday, PLDT chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan said the is not only vying for Filipino audience but Asian markets as well, particularly in Indonesia and Vietnam as it aims to establish a regional presence in the broadcasting field.

Pangilinan said investment in media assets would be vital to the group’s transformation from a traditional service provider to a multi-media and technology conglomerate.

He said the group is looking to acquire Indosiar, a leading Indonesian tv station owned by the Salim Group, which also owns PLDT’s parent firm, First Pacific Co. Ltd of Hong Kong.

Pangilinan said the group’s entry into the Vietnam broadcasting industry is still uncertain but they remain open to acquiring other TV stations in Asia to create new revenue streams.

Analysts said going regional makes sense should the group succeed in taking over GMA Network Inc. The acquisition of GMA would catapult Pangilinan’s group to the number one position and would result to a virtual duopoly in the TV industry.

The PLDT group, through TV5, is a far third in the TV market, currently dominated by rival networks ABS-CBN and GMA, which account for more than 60 percent of the Philippines’ audience share

TV5, however, has been steadily gaining market share through the introduction of new shows and acquisition of big talents.

As of end-2011, TV5’s market share has jumped to 18 percent in Metro Manila from only 2.3 percent in 2010 and 15.6 percent nationwide as against 2.7 percent.

Pangilinan said he is hopeful that a deal with GMA’s major shareholders – the Gozon, Duavit and Jimenez families – will be closed within the year. The purchase will be done under MediaQuest Holdings, a subsidiary of PLDT’s Beneficital Trust Fund.

Aside from television, the Pangilinan group also owns cable firm Cignal Digital and has significant presence in both FM and AM frequencies. It also has minority interest in three newspapers – The Philippine Star, Philippine Daily Inquirer and Businessworld. The group also has a block-time arrangement with IBC-13.

Cignal TV is now the largest DTH Pay-TV operator in the country with over 250,000 subscribers.

Pangilinan said the group is exploring new media initiatives out of a growing sense of opportunity as traditional telco companies around the world face the challenges posed by new and improved content delivery technologies from so-called “over-the-top players” like Skype, Facebook and Google.

“The strategic choice was to stay at the telco level and become a full delivery system—a pure highway. But that’s not the long-term future of the telco business. It has got to get into other areas that will enhance the value of the telco other than the highway,” Pangilinan said.

Pangilian said the group wants to accelerate its strategy to deliver leading content to all the broadband screens — TV, smartphone, tablet or computer — that its customers may choose.

To remain competitive, the PLDT Group intends to establish closer relations with Silicon Valley in California, where many of the world’s biggest technology firms are located.- Z Dela Pena

PLDT readies media war chest, as unit sells 27% stake in Philweb
By: Darwin G. Amojelar, InterAksyon.com
July 11, 2012 12:12 PM
http://www.interaksyon.com/article/37146/pldt-readies-media-war-chest-as-unit-sells-27-stake-in-philweb (http://www.interaksyon.com/article/37146/pldt-readies-media-war-chest-as-unit-sells-27-stake-in-philweb)

MANILA - (UPDATED 3:33 p.m.) The PLDT group is raising funds for its expansion in media, which includes the possible acquisition of GMA Network Inc.

In a disclosure to the local bourse, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. said its unit ePLDT Inc. sold its 397.89 million shares - a 27 percent stake - in Philweb Corp. back to the online gaming firm for P10.70 a share or for a total consideration of P4.26 billion. The transaction will be completed by the end of next year.

PLDT said its unit "wanted to realize its profits" after "having made over 660 percent return in its original investment in six years."

In a text message, Napoleon Nazareno, PLDT president, said the divestment "is part of our asset repositioning program for more efficient funding of capex and investments."

Ramon Isberto, PLDT spokesperson, said the divestment from Philweb is meant to realign resources "to support the group's current thrusts, which includes of course investments in media."

Astro del Castillo, managing director of First Grade Finance, Inc., said the divestment of ePLDT's interest in Philweb comes as no surprise, as the PLDT group is beefing up its financial muscle either for expansion or acquisition.

Del Castillo said the money from Philweb will be used "possibly" for the acquisition of GMA7.

During PLDT's annual stockholders meeting last month, chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan had said the company was moving into the content business amid the maturing telecom market.

The sale of the Philweb stake comes several weeks after PLDT announced it would invest a combined P6 billion in TV5 and Cignal through ePLDT. The PLDT group owns TV5 and Cignal through MediaQuest Holdings.

Interaksyon.com earlier reported that the PLDT group is holding discussions with some of the country's biggest lenders, including BDO and Metrobank, for a $300-million loan facility.

Last week, PLDT bagged an investment grade rating from Standard & Poor's, the last of three major international debt watchers to give the telecom giant a ratings boost that would reduce borrowing costs.

Pangilinan had said his group will pay cash when it acquires GMA7, adding that discussions with the controlling shareholders of the broadcast company - the Gozons, Duavits and Jimenezes - were "moving positively."

The PLDT group has been courting GMA7, but talks have stalled on a price acceptable to both parties.

Pangilinan said any acquisition price would however be "below P100 billion.”

At the close of trading on Thursday, the market valued GMA7 at P34.887 billion

Post by: bajoyjoy on Jul 12, 2012, 02:44 PM

here's another article on the rumored buyout:

http://business.inquirer.net/70370/biz-buzz-airplane-shopping-spree

Smelling the deal

GMA Network chair Felipe Gozon was quick to deny that no deal has been signed for the sale of GMA 7 to the group of businessman Manuel V. Pangilinan. But who reported that such an agreement had been signed in the first place? Definitely not us, as we only reported that the parties were “moving closer” to a deal at an indicative price tag of P52.5 billion for the whole of GMA 7—a number drawn not from thin air but from reliable sources familiar with the impending transaction. A deal is indeed shaping up toward this level but actual deal signing can take more time.

Also, note that MVP has started preparing the funds to close this acquisition, which will be funded by a mix of debt and equity. We gathered that two of the country’s biggest local banks have been brought on board to provide financial muscle to the prospective buyout. “Kaunti na lang” (Just a bit more), is how one source close to MVP describes the state of affairs.

The enterprise value of around P52.5 billion refers to the whole of GMA 7, out of which MVP will get a controlling block. What is still fluid is the exact percentage of sellers joining the block, particularly among the individual members among the three families controlling the network. But what’s clear is that MVP is gunning for close to 80 percent (before the mandatory tender offer) control. Based on equity value estimated from this assumed pricing level, it seems that such a forthcoming deal is already reflected in current market prices. GMA 7 stock prices have risen 53 percent since the start of the year, thanks to the excitement over MVP’s prospective buyout, but prices have firmed up of late below the 52-week high of P11. Needless to say, the market must have smelled the price tag early on.—Doris C. Dumlao

Raising cash

Anyone doubting how serious businessman Manny Pangilinan is in acquiring GMA Network Inc. should set those doubts aside.

The chair of the PLDT group on Tuesday had his ePLDT unit divest one of its most prized liquid assets—its shares in technology firm Philweb—in order to raise cash for his GMA 7 bid. The transaction, worth P4.3 billion, is seen by market watchers as a good move for both parties as ePLDT made about six times its initial investment in the listed firm controlled by former Marcos trade minister Bobby Ongpin. Remember, ePLDT came into Philweb some years ago at P2 a share and then sold at P10.70 apiece.

The Philweb shares were bought back by the cash-rich Ongpin group for a series of payments (the first of which will be settled later this week), and will likely be resold to other business partners who have been clamoring for a piece of the Philweb action for some time now.

For PLDT, they’re now a few billion pesos closer to meeting the P52-billion cash demand of GMA 7’s owners.—Daxim L. Lucas

Yup GMA7, had shoot up na. Speculations palang yan of the deal. I'm wondering paano kung matuloy yung deal?

Di ko talaga gets bakit nagka-interest sila sa GMA7. Balak ba ni MVP: SMART-Sun-PLDT-Digitel and ABC5-QTV-GMA7?

Our local banks said it all..... TOO EXPENSIVE! they cannot support the deal.

My assessment, MVP should not have buy it in the first place unless the price is below 25B.  Recovery of invested capital is already more than 5 years based on my rough estimate. Remember, we would soon shift to digital broadcasting and it will bring another round of gargantuan competition from other networks.

kaya nga gusto mag delay ng GMA7 sa digital eh they are wary about new competition.  Hala GMA7 sell na.

PLDT withdraws claim over CURE frequency

PHILIPPINE LONG Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) has asked regulators to formally void its claim over a frequency, as the telco prepares to turn over some of its airwaves as a consequence of acquiring Digital Telecommunications Philippines, Inc (Digitel).

The company, through its legal counsel, asked regulators to withdraw its application for a “certificate of public conveyance and necessity” (CPCN) to operate, maintain, and charge rates for the services of its unit Connectivity Unlimited Resources Enterprise, Inc. (CURE), a filing with the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), showed.

The move comes as the company will be divesting the CURE frequency this month, PLDT President Napoleon L. Nazareno said.

“If we are going to turn over the frequency, there is no more use of the CPCN,” Mr. Nazareno told BusinessWorld.

PLDT said in its filing that the company is taking its cue from an NTC condition for allowing the merger of PLDT and Digitel.

“In a decision dated Oct. 26, 2011, issued by this honorable commission in NTC Case No. 2011-072, the PLDT was directed to divest itself of CURE in accordance with the divestment plan,” the filing read.

Under the plan, PLDT was given nine months to divest CURE’s 10 megahertz of 3G frequencies.

“As the necessary consequence, therefore, CURE is no longer in a position to pursue the present application as it cannot in the meantime establish or maintain a new service, including, the present service subject of present application…” the company said.

“In view thereof, it is constrained to move for the withdrawal of the present application,” it added.

PLDT is now migrating CURE’s subscribers under the Red Mobile brand to Smart Communications, Inc.

 PLDT loses foreign ownership case in SC  (http://www.rappler.com/business/14023-pldt-loses-foreign-ownership-case-in-sc)


Quote
MANILA, Philippines - The country's biggest telecommunications firm, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT), lost in its appeal at the Supreme Court regarding a breach of the 40% foreign ownership limit.

Court insiders said the Court, voting 10-3 with one abstention, stood by its June 2011 ruling defining "capital" as shares of stocks with voting powers -- a decision expected to have an impact on several foreign investors already doing business or planning to invest in the Philippines.

PLDT has yet to comment on the decision, which is scheduled to be released Friday, October 12.

Listed companies that are in violation of the foreign ownership limit based on the stricter definition of the SEC are TEL, GLO,MWC, ALI and ICT. Share price performance of the five stocks would most likely be negatively affected by this development. If the SEC upholds the draft, the five companies would either have to force foreign shareholders to sell down shares to local investors or issue new common shares to local investors, leading to dilution. The value of shares that will have to change hands or raised is also significant and could be a challenge. Assuming that all five companies choose to sell existing shares held by foreigners to local investors, local investors would have to absorb Php160 Bil worth of shares. On the other hand, assuming that all five companies issue new common shares to local investors, the amount of capital to be raised is Php400 Bil. Foreign investors
would also not be allowed to buy shares of the five companies and this would negatively affect the liquidity of the stocks

The 60-40 ownership restriction kasi applies only to public utilities and land holdings, correct? If foreign companies will be forced to give up their holdings in excess of the limit, sana they will just move their investment to another domestic business with less restrictions. Otherwise, baka magtampo ang grasya at ilabas nila from the Philippines and invest instead in other business-friendly states, that will surely hurt our economy... In that regard, talagang obsolete na ang ibang provisions ng ating Constitution which gave too much protection to certain industries kahit hindi naman natin kayang palaguin on our own, gaya ng telecom na technology-dependent.

MANILA - (UPDATED 7:00 p.m.) The Philippine Stock Exchange together with other players in the capital market called the recent Supreme Court ruling that redefined limits to foreign ownership of companies a “game-changer” that will hurt the bull run in the stock market, damage confidence in the economy and risk the country’s chances of snatching the sought after investment grade status.

In a public consultation organized by the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday, Hans Sicat, PSE president and chief executive officer, said the “huge redefinition of capital” is seen to have an initial impact on 13 percent of the more than 255 listed companies in the stock market.

The extent of the coverage, however, remains uncertain as the rules also extend to other private entities and not just listed firms, Sicat said.

"I agree with the view that it can precipitate a sell-down. The immediate effect is that we will now stifle capital market growth because it will stifle the ability of financiers to actually create and adjust financial products," he said.

"The irony is that exactly these types of companies, utilities, typically require huge capital expenditures and long term capital and the economic history of many countries including the Philippines, you need capital outside of your own geographic jurisdiction to actually complete the picture especially to balance the risks and rewards. You cannot rely entirely on debts," Sicat said.

On Monday, the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co warned of a "mad rush" out of the country because of the Supreme Court ruling, adding that foreign investors will not wait out the SEC's proposed 5-year curing period for companies to address foreign equity violations. The biggest listed company in the PSE composite index, shares in PLDT dropped after it warned of the Supreme Court ruling's consequences.

The SEC held the public dialogue in preparation for the release of the final guidelines on foreign ownership in light of last month’s Supreme Court ruling that affirmed a June 2011 decision defining Filipino ownership of public utilities to mean no less than 60 percent of the voting rights of such companies.

This overruled the SEC, which had been computing ownership based on all shares, including non-voting preferred shares.

During the same dialogue, SEC Chairperson Teresita Herbosa noted that the agency, so as not to be caught up in the “evolving” laws, “must be able to meet the challenges brought about by new changes in law and interpretations.”

Much of the concern focused on the “addition” in the October 9, 2012 decision penned by Associate Justice Antonio Carpio that “the 60-40 ownership requirement in favor of Filipino citizens must apply separately to each class of shares, whether common, preferred non-voting, preferred voting or any other class of shares.”

“A lot is at stake,” Sicat said, adding that the proposed rules would reverse a lot of the market's gains and reduce the country's attractiveness to foreign capital, especially during this time when the Philippines has a chance to raise its credit rating to investment grade.

“The rule will have a profound and far-reaching effect on the stock exchange, foreign investment, the capital markets and the economy. I hope the rules will not have a block effect on the unprecedented gains of the economy. But I think it will have that kind of effect,” said Ray C. Espinosa, regulatory and policy affairs head at PLDT.

Last year, the SC directed the corporate regulator to determine if PLDT violated the Constitutional provision limiting foreign ownership of public utilities at 40 percent based on its definition of capital. The High Tribunal also told the SEC to impose appropriate sanctions if a violation exists.

The court case stemmed from a complaint filed by the late human rights lawyer Wilson Gamboa, a PLDT shareholder who questioned the sale of government’s shares in the telecom company to Hong Kong-based First Pacific Co Ltd.

Jaime Ysmael, Ayala Land Inc chief financial officer, said the new rules will place foreign ownership in the company at 40.5 percent. The company has been receiving calls from fund managers, noting that recent analyst write-ups have been warning of sell-downs “triggered by uncertainties this draft circular has brought forth."

On the basis of last year’s SC ruling, PLDT and Ayala Land moved to reduce foreign control in their respective companies by offering preferred shares with full voting rights, but SEC chairperson Teresita Herbosa refused to comment if these actions will make them compliant to the new rules.

“The SEC has done a great job so far and it has not failed on what it has to do to make sure that markets are run properly. It is a great deal of surprise on our part and the part of the PSE that a radical departure is being proposed now when we do not see there is any real problem in the stock market,” said Emmanuel Lombos of SyCip Salazar Hernandez & Gatmaitan law office.

Lombos noted that the SEC is not legally compelled to follow the obiter dictum on the application of the foreign ownership restrictions for each class of shares.

"Its duty under Gamboa is done completely by calling PLDT to prove 60 percent of voting shares is owned by Filipinos...The adoption of rules cannot be based on Gamboa. Gamboa has said other things but they are obiter dicta and they do not have force of compulsion," Lonbos said.

Espinosa said the proposed rules on foreign ownership also undermine the use of depositary receipts, especially if taken in conjunction with Section 4 of the draft rules on the application of the foreign ownership restrictions for each class of shares and Section 5 on the transfer of beneficial ownership. Depository receipts are supposed to provide a safe haven for foreign investors to prevent violation of the foreign ownership rules.

Espinosa said it is important to maintain versatility to create securities that do not deviate from control required by the Constitution, Foreign Investment Act and other laws.

Froilan Castelo, Globe Telecom Inc head for corporate and legal services, said the SEC should seek the opinion of other relevant government agencies like the Department of Finance, Board of Investments, Department of Justice and the National Economic Development Authority before coming out with the final rules.

The SEC will accept comments on the draft guidelines on foreign ownership until November 30, with the final rules to be released in the next six months.

“We have to try and align the circular with what we have with the [Foreign Investments Act], its implementing rules and other laws. We have to make sure that whatever rules will come out with will be pro-active and will not be a set back to the capital markets,” Herbosa said.

Interaksyon.com earlier reported that other companies already breached the ceiling. These include Globe, in which foreign ownership already hit 65.2 percent; Manila Water Co Inc, 53.3 percent; and Ayala Land, 40.3 percent.

The latest SC decision also placed foreign ownership in 11 other companies in excess of 30 percent, putting them in danger of breaching the foreign ownership ceiling.

The borderline companies include Philex Mining Corp, Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co, Security Bank Corp, Energy Development Corp, Ayala Corp, SM Prime Holdings Inc, International Container Terminal Services Inc, Alliance Global Group Inc, Metro Pacific Investments Corp, San Miguel Corp and Jollibee Foods Corp.

TEL is currently facing resistance from 200-day SMA and 61.8% Fibonacci Retracement level. While this stock entered its bearish territory, we still expect some spikes like today's But will it continue to spike until 2,900? to meet with the 50% Fibonacci Retracement level? or it will range trade within current's horizontal channel created by the 2 Fibo lines?

TEL have been going down for several days now and Ichimoku system is telling us that it is still in a downward trend since the last time it broke from the Kumo. But today we are seeing a possible reversal from our candlestick pattern. This pattern is what we called a Bullish Harami. Bullish Harami pattern suggests the power of the bulls are diminishing. As we can see we have a green candlestick that is engulfed by the previous large red candlestick.

RSI or Relative Strength Index is at oversold level and is now pointing up and looks like we have a good upside if price will continue to go up.

Caveat!

TEL has been climbing since the time we saw the Harami on TEL (http://www.traderslogbook.com/bullish-harami-on-tel/) last November 27 during the entire duration of the climb, no element from Ichimoku is showing bullish signal. Does this mean the climb is only short-lived? Today it was a tag-of-war betweeen bulls and the bears. This results to a Doji candlestick. A doji candlestick is considered bearish reversal pattern if seen at the top of the climb. But since it is considered a weak reversal pattern, we need a confirmation via a large red candlestick or a gap down. Will it happen tomorrow or price will continue to go up to close the gap?

Notice also that the price is at the resistance level provided by the 78.6% Fibonacci Retracement level and also the Kijun Sen line. Looks like we have a lot of reason for TEL to retrace?

Caveat!

Bro GS, ipit na rin ako, down 4% but still 50% of desired position pa lang.

Brojoyjoy, I got some at the close kanina, the last transaction was mine. I was hoping it gets pushed lower at the close.

Anyway, my guesstimate is 4% net dividend at my current average. COL reported today a revaluation of 2,100 for TEL.

Edit add: GS, you should be happy were not into ICT, who reported on the same day a slight increase in earnings but was punished from 81 to 72.

MANILA, Philippines, 29th February 2016 –– Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company
(“PLDT”) (PSE: TEL) (NYSE: PHI) today announced its audited financial and operating results
for 2015 with Consolidated Core Net Income, before exceptional items, amounting to P35.2
billion, 6% or P2.2 billion lower than the P37.4 billion recorded last year. The decrease was due
mainly to lower EBITDA reflecting the impact of expenses relating to the manpower reduction
program, higher financing costs, offset by lower provisions for income tax.
Reported Net Income, after reflecting exceptional transactions for the period, declined 35% to
P22.1 billion, from P34.1 billion in 2014, as a result of the dip in core net income, higher foreign
exchange and derivative losses and a rise in impairment charges relating to both fixed assets
and investments.

Hahaha! Wag mo pakabahin mga nananampalataya sa cost averaging. Those who bought above 3000 have a real chance to buy at half the price if 1800 breaks. Thats good news to them. Pero mas good news kung mag-buy 1 take 2.

Pwede rin, glass half full or empty.

But methinks no rush, for this will bottom out for a long time based on mvp's own estimate, 2 to 3 yrs...

Hmmm ... anyone noticed that TEL has made up much of its price after the initial sell off?

Naalala ko may pa seminar nung 2012 sa pse. Isa ko sa ng cocoment n madaming reklamo sa service or sa bagal ng net nila. And bka dumating ang time na mawalan sila ng subscriber.

Kung minahal lng nila mga customer nila.

Aral saten to. Kasama sa fundamentals ang tamang service para sa client.



Diba lakas kumaen ng smart ng load. Kakaload lng ng 100 sa mkalawa zero balance! Karma!

Oo nmn. Decreasing earnings. Ng iba n ang technology.  Di mabenta sa tao traditional prepaid load. Nlkuha n den ng globe ung ibang subscriber. May papasok p n bgong player. Hinde n sya competitive as old days. 

Sa dame ng reklamo sa smart n kumakaen ng load! At mabagal n internet naturally lilipat ang tao sa kalaban nila. They got to spend more to become competitive.

Pldt dont posses competitive advantage. But still got some value.

Summary lumiit n profit margin nila dahil dito.  Innovation ang kelangan nila at quality service.

I just checked the charts, TEL breaks below 1700 which was never broken since Nov 2005.. :eek:

unless they close it back above 1700, next target is 1500.. then...

The margin on sms and cellphone calls has plateaued just like what happened to the landline business before. It's the battle of internet access now.

That is what has changed.
Ergo, capital expenditure is required again, which will eat into the profits.

So if MVP is correct and the income flow will go back up in 2-3 years then astute stock investors will get back on board sooner.

PLDT still has the upperhand over Globe when it comes to the Microwave, Optical, and Cellular infrastructure which provides the backbone for voice and data communication (landline calls, mobile phone calls, SMS, Internet over wired medium).  The ones that beating them though is the Wimax/4G/LTE infastructure (wireless internet access).  Not that I'm saying that landline calls, SMS, wired internet access will be obsolete anytime soon but yeah I agree that wireless internet access is the newest necessity of the masses. 

I'm a telecom engineer and got experience in all these technologies from conventional radio to LTE.  I can say that Wimax/LTE is very easy to deploy and commission.  What can PLDT do while they still have time?

1. Install more Wimax/LTE and they need to get aggressive... now.

2. Significantly lower the rates of their fiber broadband plans.  I know what is the cost of deploying FO networks and have actually worked with PLDT's FO deployment projects during my telecom contracting days. I can say PLDT's fiber plan is comparable to stealing someone in broad daylight.  Napasobra yata ang pagiging greedy nila!  Compare the FO broadband rates of Singapore and several middle east countries; which had more expensive and much bigger capital expenditure for their FO network compared to ours,  and their are still way more cheaper than ours!  Grabe!

It's not the technology per se that is the problem of PLDT, and GLO as well.
It's that absence of the "tubo lugaw" scheme they had before.

BTW I'm an ECE grad UST 1985, but worked with medical equipment mostly.

Post by: nightwatch on May 29, 2016, 06:36 PM
^Yes, technology is not the problem.  PLDT has access the available technologies.  Wala namang exclusivity ang equipment vendors with the Telcos.  Actually, one problem, I think is ,PLDT waisting so much money as there are multiple factions that favor their own vendors / solutions / architecture. It will be hard to drive an organization towards a common goal if the people are having different solutions and implementations.  Sarap paguuntugin ng ulo ng mga yan. However, I think 'change is coming', heads will roll in the coming days.   Transformation is coming.  They need to.  Otherwise, Globe will continuously eat their market.
