If we talk about the consolidated revenues of AC, it climbed by 4% or equivalent to P232.88 billion during the nine-month period this year. This was followed by a 4% increase in total costs as well or equal to P171.85 billion. Ayala Land, Inc. had contributed the biggest portion of revenues. P23.2 billion of it came from this real estate segment, 12% higher than its last year’s revenues. The jump in revenues is because of the growth of sales in office segments which accounted for 51%, commercial leasing revenues for 16%, and commercial and industrial lot sales for 16% during the past nine months.
AC Energy, Inc. also reported an increase in profit to P24.3 billion at the end of the nine-month period. Last year, its profit was at P2.8 billion. This is a major step for AC Energy as there was a really big difference from the prior year performance. What’re the reasons? It is because the figure was brought up by the recovery of costs spent from the adjustments in construction and operation of the existing and new power plants of AC and gains from the partial divestment of the thermal assets of the company.
