GT Capital booked consolidated revenues of P45.5 billion in the first three months, owing to higher equity in net income of associates Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co. (Metrobank), AXA Philippines and Metro Pacific Investments Corp.

“The interim soft numbers for the auto sector during the first quarter resulted from the front- loading of orders late last year in anticipation of the new excise tax. We expect sales to normalize by the second half of the year. Nevertheless, significant contributions from our associate companies Metrobank, Metro Pacific, and AXA Philippines resulted in strong first quarter growth,” GT Capital President Carmelo Maria Luza Bautista said.
