MANILA, Philippines — Conglomerate San Miguel Corp. of billionaire Ramon S. Ang is seeing continued growth this year despite economic headwinds, banking on sustained revenues and operating income.

“In the first-quarter results of San Miguel Group, we are growing double-digit in revenue and operating income. We will stick to that target of continuing to grow at least double-digit for the year,” Ang said during the company’s annual stockholders meeting on Tuesday.

Despite higher sales in its core businesses, San Miguel’s first-quarter profit plunged by 94 percent to P509 million due to the weaker peso.


Operating income rose by 15 percent to P40.5 billion, revenues jumped by 13 percent to P392.7 billion.


“The next few years will be about investing and getting things done,” Ang said.

San Miguel, whose key businesses include food and beverage, previously said they would focus on consumption-generating programs to further boost and sustain growth.

‘Investing and getting things done’

Carlos Antonio Berba, director at San Miguel Food and Beverage (SMFB), explained that they would also strengthen the “distinctiveness” of their brands.

For Ginebra San Miguel, SMFB chief operating officer for spirits Emmanuel Macalalag said there was still much growth potential in the Visayas and Mindanao.

“The main objective of the company this year is to further strengthen our market position as a leader in the local spirits industry,” he added.
