Posted by: Ollie - 05-17-2011, 01:45 AM - Forum: StockTraders' Lounge - Replies (279)

BUSINESS PROFILE

Aboitiz Power Corporation (AP) was incorporated on February 13, 1998 as a holding company for the Aboitiz Group's investments in power generation and distribution. However, in order to prepare for growth in the power generation industry, AP was repositioned in the third quarter of 2003 as a holding company that owned only power generation assets.

In 2005, AP consolidated its investments in mini-hydroelectric plants in a single company by transferring all of Hydro Electric Development Corporation's (HEDC) and Cleanergy, Inc.'s mini-hydroelectric assets into HEDCOR, Inc. (formerly Benguet Hydropower Corporation).

AP has investments in power generation and distribution companies throughout the Philippines. Since its incorporation, the Company has accumulated interests in both hydroelectric power generation plants and thermal plants.
