Empire East sets 10 % hike in 2011 net income

Tuesday, 14 June 2011 19:02 Miguel R. Camus / Reporter

EMPIRE East Land Holdings Inc., a unit of builder Megaworld Corp., is projecting 2011 profit to grow by at least 35 percent on the back of stronger-than-expected sales, a top official said on Tuesday.

Following the company’s stockholders meeting, Empire East president Anthony Charlemagne Yu noted that reservation sales, a leading revenue indicator, are on track to grow by at least a quarter from P10 billion in 2010.

“So far [selling] has been very good [for] the past six months. We are hitting about P1 billion per month, considering the competition,” Yu told reporters on Tuesday.

“We think 35 percent to 40 percent [net income growth] is achievable. But we think we can do better than that,” he added. Empire East caters to the middle-income housing segment, with most projects situated within Metro Manila.

The builder is setting aside P2.3 billion in 2011 to launch new projects, based on a regulatory filing. The budget forms part of a P12-billion five-year spending program, Yu said.

Meanwhile, Yu said Empire East remains interested in the 103-hectare Food Terminal Inc. (FTI) property in Taguig even if the government decides to forego the planned sale and instead opt to lease out the complex.

Empire East in February made a P14-billion offer to the Department of Finance, which is spearheading FTI’s privatization effort, amid a resurgence of interest in the property.

Other developers that have signified an interest to buy FTI are Robinsons Land Corp., Filinvest Land Inc. and Ayala Land Inc.

The new administration led by President Aquino, said it remains undecided on whether to sell the property or enter into long-term leasing contracts with interested parties.

“Right now, we are waiting for a response from the government,” Yu said. “If [FTI] were to be leased, we will consider it.”

Empire East plans to develop the property mainly into residential communities.

Yu said the company is also open to a tieup with Megaworld, which already won the government auction to develop the nearby 34.5-hectare Jusmag property and an 8.34-hectare portion of North Bonifacio.

Empire East reported that first-quarter revenues rose by 2.8 percent to P565.12 million, while net income increased by 4.17 percent to P23.43 million.

Shares of the company added 2.78 percent to P0.74 each on Tuesday’s trading.

For the first five months, Megaworld, including units Empire East Land Holdings and Suntrust Home Developers, sold real estate projects worth P17 billion.

The government remains keen on selling the Food Terminal Inc. (FTI) property in Taguig within the year.

The government remains keen on selling the Food Terminal Inc. (FTI) property in Taguig within the year.

John Philip Sevilla, Finance undersecretary for privatization and the Corporate Affairs Group, told reporters the Aquino administration was looking at an “outright sale.”

“The P13-billion floor price remains the same as of this time,” Sevilla said.

The Arroyo administration tried to sell the property, too, at the same price but there were no bidders.

There are reports that big property developers Ayala Land Inc., SM Group, Robinsons Land Corp., Megaworld Corp. and Filinvest Land Inc. have all “formally” expressed interest in the property but nothing concrete has been made so far.

Sevilla clarified that FTI’s privatization plan has not been put on hold, contrary to reports, but was just delayed since the Aquino administration has been preoccupied with its Public-Private Partnership Program.

The Aquino administration said it was privatizing FTI to boost the country’s economic activity.

“In terms of raising revenues, the privatization of FTI is not urgent, but in terms of boosting the economy, yes, it is important that it is privatized this year. About 75 percent of the property is currently idle…somebody else could be investing there,” Sevilla said.


Just want to add this because it is actually ELI who did the bidding and ELI is part of Megaworld.
