MANILA,  Philippines  The continued recovery of its core businesses caused profits of Zobel-led Ayala Land Inc. to swell by 32 percent to P24.5 billion last year.

This figure serves as the foundation for the property giant’s goal to double net income to nearly P50 billion by 2028.

In a stock exchange filing on Tuesday, Ayala Land said earning growth was fueled by “robust property demand and heightened consumer activity”. This was seen across its real estate sales and leasing and hotels divisions.


“Ayala Land was well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities from an improving market in 2023, enabling us to meet our objectives for the year,” Ayala Land President and CEO Ms. Anna Ma. Margarita Bautista-Dy said in a statement on Tuesday.


“With our focus on quality, we look forward to bringing more high-value development products to market and embarking on the reinvention of our malls, hotels, and resorts for our customers to enjoy,” she added.

Renovation of flagship malls

During the past year, property development revenue grew 14 percent to P92.3 billion as Ayala Land completed new residences and offices.

Overall leasing and hospitality revenue also climbed by 25 percent to P41.7 billion.

Ayala Land, which recently announced plans to refurbish and expand four flagship malls in Metro Manila and Cebu, underscored the growth of shopping center revenues, which grew 31 percent to P21.1 billion.
