This represented a 57 percent increase from the net income generated in the same period last year, ₱3.8 billion. The growth was driven by a 26 percent increase in total revenues and other income, from ₱51.1 billion in the first nine months of 2022 to ₱64.6 billion in the same period in 2023.


The increase in revenues and other income by business segment were as follows: Banking, 37 percent; Real Estate, 14 percent; Power, 19 percent; Sugar, 25 percent; and Hospitality, 56 percent.



These increases mainly reflected the continued recovery of the businesses from the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.


The level of total revenues and other income of the conglomerate in the first nine months of 2023 already surpassed the amount generated before the pandemic, ₱63.0 billion in the first nine months of 2019.
