Lopez Holdings’ Q1 bottom line up 10% to P1.14B

/ 05:07 AM May 15, 2018

Conglomerate Lopez Holdings booked a 10-percent year-on-year increase in first quarter net profit to P1.14 billion, backed by a double-digit growth in earnings from its power generation and broadcasting businesses.

Lopez Holdings’ unaudited consolidated revenue increased by 8 percent year-on-year to P27.56 billion.


The power generation business under First Philippine Holdings (FPH) grew its first quarter net profit by 10 percent year-on-year while ABS-CBN Corp. registered a 31-percent increase in net income during the period.

“Unfavorable forex (foreign exchange) movement during the period partially offset the effect of growth in the recurring earnings of the FPH group,” the company said in a statement.


Excluding nonrecurring items, attributable earnings of FPH increased by 36 percent.

On the other hand, ABS-CBN’s advertising sales decreased by 10 percent while costs and expenses decreased by 4 percent.

As of end-March, Lopez Holdings owned 46 percent of FPH and had a 56 percent economic interest in ABS-CBN.—DORIS DUMLAO-ABADILLA
