A first in history: PH gets investment grade


"The Philippine economy has been resilient, expanding 6.6% in 2012 amid a weak global economic backdrop," Fitch said in a statement posted on its website.

Key drivers for the credit rating hike, Fitch said, are strong external balance sheets, a persistent current account surplus and high remittances.

Fitch also lauded reforms implemented under the previous and present administrations, which it said led to "favorable macroeconomic outturns."

"Improvements in fiscal management begun under President Arroyo have made general government debt dynamics more resilient to shocks," Fitch said.

Fitch is the first debt watcher to give the Philippines an investment grade, even as two other rating firms place the Philippines only a notch lower.

Standard & Poor's considers the Philippines a BB+ market at present while Moody's Investors Service gave it a Ba1 rating.

Welcoming the long-awaited credit rating upgrade, President Benigno Aquino III said the development will "encourage even greater interest and investments in our country."

"This is an institutional affirmation of our good governance agenda," Aquino said in a statement posted on the Official Gazette.

"Sound fiscal management and integrity-based leadership has led to a resurgent economy in the face of uncertainties in the global arena," he added.

Also commenting on the upgrade, Asian Development Bank Country Economist Norio Usui said it "can trigger the kind of investment that will help carry the country into its next phase of development."

"Prudent measures to attract investment, improve the business climate and diversify the economy have paved the way for growth," he added.

The ADB official however challenged authorities "to make that growth more inclusive by creating more and better jobs."

Billionaire Gokongwei to Join Magnate Okada in New Casino

Billionaire Gokongwei to Join Magnate Okada in New Casino
By Ian Sayson & Vinicy Chan - Dec 13, 2012 5:04 PM GMT+0800
Bloomberg.com

Billionaire John Gokongwei will become a partner of Japanese pachinko magnate Kazuo Okada to build a Manila casino, projected to cost more than $2 billion in what would be the biggest such investment in the Philippines.

Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC), controlled by Gokongwei, signed a preliminary agreement with Okada’s Universal Entertainment Group for the project, the Manila-based developer and Tokyo-based Universal said in separate statements yesterday.

Okada, who holds a casino license awarded by the Philippine government, and former partner Wynn Resorts Ltd. (WYNN)Chairman Steve Wynn are feuding over accusations of bribery. While the Philippines has said it will cancel Okada’s license if bribery is proven, analysts such as Macau-based Grant Govertsen at Union Gaming Group said they are concerned about the appetite for such a large number of casinos in the Southeast Asia nation.

“It can hardly support two integrated resorts,” said Govertsen. “We’d doubt if these companies will be able to generate a meaningful return for their investment.”

Universal (6425), which makes the pinball-like machines used in pachinko parlors where customers play for prizes, said in September 2011 it would invest $2.3 billion in the project.

This figure “stands for now” and details and exact amount will be known next month when a final agreement is reached, Universal spokesman Nobuyuki Horiuchi said by telephone today. Robinsons Land President Frederick Go could not immediately provide a project cost today.

Fountains, Sand Beach
The final contract will be signed by Jan. 31, according to Universal’s statement. In addition to the casino, the resort complex will also have luxurious hotels, restaurants, commercial facilities, a budget hotel, residences and “Vegas-style water fountains and an enormous indoor pool with real sand beach covered by a huge glass dome,” Universal said.

Robinsons Land will be in charge of the development of commercial facilities and budget hotels and housing facilities for the project, Universal said.

Okada can’t open a casino in Manila if bribery accusations against him are proven, Cristino Naguiat, chairman of Philippine Amusement & Gaming Corp., said on Dec. 10. Philippine justice department is investigating bribery allegations against Okada, presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Nov. 19.

Weighed Risks
Gokongwei would have weighed the risks for forging a partnership with Okada, Richard Laneda, an analyst at Manila- based COL Financial Group Inc. said.

“Gokongwei group is known to be very conservative and they don’t make investments without weighing the risk,” said Laneda. If the license is canceled later “then the Gokongwei group can bid for it or negotiate with whoever gets.”

As part of the agreement, Robinsons Land, a builder of offices and homes, will acquire majority of Eagle I Land Holdings Inc., which owns 30 hectares in the government’s PAGCOR Entertainment City project, and purchase a minority stake in Tiger Resorts, Leisure and Entertainment Inc., which owns the license to develop and manage a casino resort in the complex, according to the statements.

Competition
Shares of Universal rose 6.5 percent to 1,409 yen at the close in Tokyo trading, the most since July 13. Robinsons Land was unchanged at 21.50 pesos at the close in Manila, JG Summit Holdings Inc. (JGS), Gokongwei’s publicly-listed holding company, climbed 1.5 percent to 39.50 pesos.

Okada and Gokongwei’s venture will compete with partnerships between Philippine billionaire Andrew Tan and Genting Hong Kong Ltd.; a venture of Philippine billionaire Henry Sy and Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd.; and Bloomberry Resorts Corp. (BLOOM), controlled by port magnate Enrique Razon.

Melco Crown signed an agreement with Belle Corp., PremiumLeisure & Amusement Inc. and SM Investments Corp. to jointly invest $1 billion in the Manila casino resorts. Genting Hong Kong and Alliance Global Group Inc. plan to jointly invest $1.2 billion in the next three years on their new casino project Resorts World Bayshore, they now operate Resorts World Manila.

Robinsons Land is the nation’s second-largest shopping mall operator, while parent JG Summit’s other ventures include Cebu Air Inc., the nation’s biggest budget carrier.

Robinsons brings mall projects to Malabon | 21 Oct 2012

Robinsons brings mall projects to Malabon 
By Zinnia B. Dela Peña | The Philippine Star | 21 Oct 2012

MANILA, Philippines - Gokongwei-led Robinsons Land Corp. is invading Malabon, one of the most highly populated areas in Metro Manila with the construction of the two-level Robinsons Town Mall.

Robinsons Town Mall, the 17th mall in RLC’s growing chain of shopping malls, will rise on a 23,000 squaremeter lot along Gov. Pascual and Crispin Sts., Tinajeros, Malabon.

The mall, which will have a gross floor area of 17,104.83 sqm., will be home to more than 250 tenants.

“Given the population density and the relatively few malls in Malabon, we believe there is an opportunity to put up a community mall that will address the basic needs of residents not just of Malabon but even Navotas and parts of Valenzuela and Caloocan,” said Arlene G. Magtibay, RLC general manager for commercial centers.

Malabon, which has more than 350,000 residents, is home to many small and medium enterprises.

The city of Malabon has originally been regarded as traditional fishing village. The past years, however, have seen the rise of various businesses and industries, which is a clear proof that it has indeed come a long way.

Magtibay said Robinsons Town Mall would be “substantially elevated” from the street level to ensure that the structure will remain flood-free.

The mall will also have ample parking space for both private cars and public transport.

Robinsons Land is the company behind the residential condominium development of:

  • The Magnolia Residences in New Manila, Quezon City

  • The Sapphire Bloc in Ortigas Center Pasig

  • Gateway Regency in Pioneer Mandaluyong



Robinsons Magnolia: More than a scoop of fun awaits shoppers | 18 Aug 2012

Robinsons Magnolia: More than a scoop of fun awaits shoppers
by Theresa S. Samaniego | Philippine Daily Inquirer | 18 Aug 2012

A single scoop from this ice cream haven decades ago was enough to put a twinkle on every child’s eyes. It was a habit too hard to break then and yet too sinful to indulge in.

From the many peach melbas, banana split, shakes and ice cream cakes it served, the Magnolia Ice Cream House in Quezon City no doubt brought smiles and priceless memories to all its patrons.

And while the old Magnolia Ice Cream House is no longer there for this generation to experience, a new structure promises to continue bringing picture perfect moments, to make those eyes twinkle again.

Relaxing ambiance

Located in the bustling corner of Aurora Boulevard and Hemady Street near New Manila, the recently opened Robinsons Mall Magnolia provides mall goers the relaxing ambience of an outdoor setting and the cool comforts of sleek interior spaces.

Inside, the mall boasts a grand entrance lobby and spacious hallways that lead to a four-level al fresco area that overlooks The Plaza, a lushly landscaped open space dotted with water features and an area for live entertainment.

The Plaza is also where the new Ice Cream House can be found, serving the same old concoctions that we so love.

Frederick Go, president and chief operating officer of Robinsons Land Corp., pointed out as well that Robinsons Mall Magnolia is a “very environmentally friendly mall and a green building.”

Go explained: “We have many firsts in our building [Robinsons Magnolia]. We actually collect rainwater here and recycle it. We also recycle treated water from our STP (sewage treatment plant) and as you can see, we have incorporated many features that make it a green building such as skylights. We have curtains that roll down to block out the heat.”

The 42,000-square-meter multistory Robinsons Mall Magnolia is the 32nd shopping mall of the Gokongwei-led RLC. It is Wi-Fi enabled and PWD-friendly (people with disability); and has babycare facilities, a customer pay lounge, valet service, and monitored taxi service. A concierge facility is also on hand to provide the best customer service.

ROBINSONS Magnolia will have three floors of al fresco dining
It also houses a distinct variety of shops and dining places.

“We have a wonderful tenant mix,” Go said.

True enough, the mall has international brands on the house including Topshop/Topman, Mango, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Muji, Warehouse, Anne Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Fred Perry, Lacoste, Penguin, Perry Ellis, Ecco, Nine West, Promod and Miss Sixty. High street staples such as Gap, Cotton On, Aeropostale, Springfield, Cache Cache, Superga and Steve Madden can also be found in the Robinsons Mall Magnolia.

Dining experience
Gastronomic dining experience also awaits mall goers as Robinsons Magnolia will have some of the country’s best restaurants such as Tao Yuan, Thai Bistro, Conti’s, UCC, Sumosam, Clawdaddy, New Orleans, Elias, Uncle Cheffy, and Buffet 101, while shops such as Patchi, Red Mango, Happy Lemon, Mary Grace and Jamba Juice will surely satisfy the craving of every dessert lover.

What may be the most remarkable in the four-story Robinsons Magnolia is that it features what RLC claims to be the “fanciest food court in the metro that features island-type food stalls with open kitchens.”

Hobbyists, meanwhile, may find what they need from the different shops like True Value, Gourdo’s, Bow and Wow, Power Mac Center. For entertainment, there’s a Tom’s World and Gymboree for kids, and four digital cinemas that are easily accessible from the mall’s al fresco area.

The mall also has Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Department Store and Robinsons Appliance.

Following the opening of the Robinsons Magnolia, Go said RLC is set to open a few more malls in other key areas such as Butuan, Malolos, Antipolo, Las Piñas and Malabon.
