Greenergy to hike capital stock to P5 billion
MANILA, Philippines—Greenergy Holdings Inc. has gotten the nod of its board of directors to hike the company’s authorized capital stock to P5 billion from P2 billion to help fund its proposed renewable energy projects.

In another development, Greenergy also disclosed the reacquisition of 1.23 billion common shares covered by the stock purchase plan. The said common shares will become treasury shares of the company.
