Power generation holding firm First Philippine Holdings saw an 87 percent year-on-year increase in net income attributable to equity holders of the parent amounting to P3.76 billion while media arm ABS-CBN Corp. registered a 120-percent increase in net income to P808 million during the period.

Foreign exchange losses on FPH group’s consolidated foreign currency-denominated debt shrunk to P5 million compared to a loss of P881 million during the comparative period.

Amid the run-up to the mid-term elections, ABS-CBN recorded a 22 percent increase in advertising revenues.

The increase in group-wide revenues was due to a 20 percent year-on-year gain in the sale of electricity to P28.03 billion while earnings from contracts and services rose by 45 percent to P1.9 billion.

On the other hand, sale of merchandise decreased by 4 percent while real estate revenues were flat.
