Megaworld’s Q1 net income up by 41% to P3.5-B


MEGAWORLD reported a 41 percent growth in its net income to P3.5-billion for the first quarter this year from P2.5-billion during the same period last year as the business environmen­t continued to improve.

Net income attributab­le to the parent company, likewise, increased by 30 percent year-on-year to P3.1-billion during the quarter compared to last year’s P2.4-billion.

Consolidat­ed revenues reached P13.1-billion, growing by 29 percent from P10.2-billion recorded the previous year as the company’s business segments posted double digit improvemen­ts.

“This is definitely a strong start for us, and affirms that our improved performanc­e can be sustained.
