Ayala Land Rises Most in 6 Days in Manila After Share Buyback

By Ian C. Sayson

Aug. 20 (Bloomberg) — Ayala Land Inc. climbed the most in six days in Manila trading after the nation’s largest builder bought back its own shares and a newspaper reported the company will finish 37 office buildings in five years.

Ayala Land increased 2.4 percent to 10.50 pesos as of 10:13 a.m. in Manila, its biggest gain since Aug. 11. It’s the biggest gainer by percentage among the six stocks that advanced so far in the main Philippine Stock Exchange Index.

The Manila-based developer said it bought 414,000 of its shares yesterday as part of a 3 billion peso ($66 million) buyback program to boost the value of its stock. Ayala Land has lost 26 percent market value in 2008 on concern record oil prices and slowing global growth will weaken sales and erode profit.

Separately, the developer will increase its number of office buildings from eight to 37 in five years, BusinessWorld reported, citing Assistant Vice President Carmela Ignacio. Three quarters of the projects will be on the main island of Luzon and at least two will be on Mindanao in the south, the newspaper said.

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone,

A few days ago, we had a lottery done on the last block in Abrio. For those who joined, congratulations. For those who got their desired lots, then I must say you guys are lucky!

Anyway, there are still a few more lots left, there’s still a chance for those who want to position themselves, or to invest in the city of the future, Nuvali (I was just there last weekend and even I was so surprised of the speed of the development, the same kind of speed when Ayala delivered/opened Bonifacio High Street and the Shops at Serendra). Man, I must say, Im excited how the first phase would turn out.

Anyway, enough of that. Here is the update map of the last phase of Abrio 22 lots sold out of 42 lots opened during the lottery. Again, congratulations to everybody who got a lot here !

Feel free to contact me if you want to get a property in Abrio.

Ayala Land earnings surge in first semester

Aug 09, 2008 (The Manila Times – McClatchy-Tribune News Service via COMTEX) — AYAAF | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating — Aug. 9–THE Philippines’ biggest real estate developer turned in double-digit profit growth in the first half of the year owing to higher growth in its residential and construction businesses.

Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) disclosed to the Philippine Stock Exchange its net income increased 37 percent to P2.91 billion, while its consolidated revenues went up by 32 percent to P15.38 billion over the same period last year.

“This robust financial performance was driven by strong growth in operating revenues, improved equity earnings from affiliates, higher interest and other income, and effective cost control,” the company said.

Operating revenues increased 26 percent to P13.71 billion on higher residential and construction businesses. Ayala Land’s strategic landbank management, corporate business and Visayas-Mindanao operations also contributed to its consolidated revenue growth.

Bannered by the strong growth of the construction business, the residential business contributed P7 billion, accounting for the bulk of revenues at 45 percent, and support businesses, P3.8 billion, during the six-month period.

At end June, ALI’s revenues reached P7 billion, or 12 percent higher than P6.2 billion in the same period a year ago.

Profits from its shopping centers were unchanged in the first six months at P2.1 billion, as base rent for building leases were escalated within a range of 8 percent to 12 percent; however, this was offset by the loss of Glorietta 2 and Park Square 2 revenues and some concessions offered to merchants directly affected by the ongoing construction and redevelopment of Ayala Center.

Controlled by one of the country’s old-rich families, ALI hit the front pages of newspapers last year when a section of its premier shopping mall, the Glorietta, exploded. The police blamed the incident on building administrators, but the company suspected foul play.

Meanwhile, corporate business earnings grew 8 percent to P428 million at end-June due to higher average rental rates, coupled with the sale of three hectares at Laguna Technopark’s expansion phase. Average rent at headquarter-type office buildings went up 15 percent while occupancy level remained at 98 percent.

For ALI’s contact center buildings, average rent of all operational tenants grew 8 percent, while occupancy dropped to 65 percent.

Last year, ALI posted a 13-percent growth in net income to P4.4 billion but consolidated revenues inched up by one percent to P25.7 billion over the previous year.

ALI’s current ratio at end-2007 stood at 1.65:1 while cash and equivalents went up by 43 percent to P13.6 billion due to the collection of full payments from the completed Serendra units in Fort Bonifacio and deposits from preferred shares subscriptions.

Last year, ALI spent P15.2 billion for capital expenditures with residential development cornering more than half at P7.3 billion.

For this year, the company has set aside P24.3 billion, the bulk of which would go to residential development and corporate business at 42 percent and 30 percent, respectively. Malls will get 14 percent of the total while the balance will be used for strategic land banking.

In the Swing of Things at Ayala Greenfield Estates

SOURCE: Phil Star 6/28/2008

Ayala Greenfield Estates’ 18-hole, par 72, all-weather championship golf course designed by-the father of environmental golf course design, Robert Trent Jones II, served as venue to the Junior Golf Interclub Championship, a gathering of the best and brightest junior golfers in the country.

While some courses tend to favor players who have strong swings, the Ayala Greenfield Estates’ golf course takes pride in its challenging course design.

“The golf course at Ayala Greenfield Golf and Leisure Club offers a balance between those who use their head and those who hit the ball well,” says club manager” Juami Rocha. “This provides a good training ground for golfers who learn not only to hit the ball properly but to strategize as well.”

“You can’t overpower the course. You really need to use your mental skills,” says 14-year-old Maan Legaspi, champion in the Class B (13-14 years old) division and a member of the Philippine Team.

The golf course, due to its location nestled at the foot of the famed Mt. Makiling, has exceptionally strong winds. Sixteen-year-old Filipino-Brit Edward Reyes, a champion golfer in both the Philippines and the United Kingdom, loves the fact that the conditions are very challenging.

The surroundings make Ayala Greenfield’s golf course incomparable, offering panoramic views of Laguna de Bay, Mt. Makiling, Tagaytay Ridge, and the Metro Manila cityscape. Aside from the views, the course boasts well-maintained greens and a dedicated staff that ensures the club is always a step ahead. All of these factors make golfting in Ayala Greenfield Estates an enjoyable experience, one that makes you want to come back because it is a thrill to play.


The Jungolf has been running for 37 years, having started by Mommy Amanda Montecillo whose son was an avid golf player. She thought of giving children a venue where they can compete and showcase their golfing skills which can be their stepping stone to competing in international golf tournaments. Winners of the Jungolf are sent to represent the country in an international golf tournament.

Jungolf has played a crucial part in the development of young golfers, like Juami Rocha who was once a Jungolf participant, and other budding talents who are now making waves in the international golfing arena such as Maan Legaspi and Edward Reyes.

As Rocha puts it, “Hosting the tournament is a. way of giving back to Jungolf and to the future of Philippine golf.”

Ayala Greenfield Estates is an exclusive 350-hectare residential development located in Calamba, Laguna. About half an hour from Alabang by car, this unique neighborhood with its own private golf course and club is anticipated to be less than an hour from Makati once the ongoing refurbishment of the South Luzon Expressway is completed. With one of the finest elevated locations in Laguna, Ayala Greenfield Estates provides homes with incomparable lake, mountain, and fairway views, while remaining accessible to schools, hospitals and commercial establishments.

I hope you enjoyed the article. Contact me for any questions.
