MANILA  —Filinvest Development Corp (FDC) has secured the Securities and Exchange Commission’s approval for its P10-billion  fixed rate bond issuance,  comprising a base offer of P7 billion and an oversubscription option of up to P3 billion.

The issuance, scheduled for Feb 7, 2024, is the first tranche of the company’s new three-year shelf registration amounting to ₱32 billion.

The bonds were recently assigned a credit score of PRS Aaa, the highest rating conferred by PhilRatings, indicating FDC’s strong capacity to meet financial commitments.  It was also given a “stable outlook” with Philrating’s view that the ratings will likely remain unchanged in the next 12 months.

“The approval of our bonds paves the way for an enticing and stable investment opportunity for investors while funding the company’s expansion,” said FDC President and CEO Rhoda A. Huang. “We are pleased that PhilRatings has assigned a PRS Aaa rating to our proposed bond issuance. This rating is reflective of our current financial performance and underscores our commitment to drive growth through our diverse business holdings.”

According to Philratings, key considerations in assigning the Issue Credit Ratings were FDC’s conservative and professional management, the proven track record and established brand names of its main contributing subsidiaries, and its stable revenue stream from its diversified business portfolio.
