MANILA, Philippines — Megawide Construction Corp. plans to raise as much as P5 billion from the issuance of fixed-rate bonds to refinance its existing debt and explore business development opportunities.

In a stock exchange filing on Monday, the company led by tycoon Edgar Saavedra said they intend to offer up to P4 billion of three-year Series C bonds due 2027, five-year Series D bonds due 2029, and seven-year Series E bonds due 2031.

This is still subject to the approval of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Megawide added.


Proceeds will likewise be used to fund “general corporate requirements,” according to Megawide chief financial officer Jez dela Cruz.

In the first nine months of 2023, Megawide recorded P332.5 million in earnings, a reversal of the P970.4 million loss it reported during the same period in 2022.
