SAN MIGUEL EYES 60% OF LIBERTY TELECOM (Philippines)

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on December 16, 2008

Philippine conglomerate San Miguel Corp. is negotiating to acquire up to 60 percent of publicly listed Liberty Telecom Holdings Inc., San Miguel vice chairman and president Ramon Ang confirmed to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Ang declined to disclose the status of the negotiations. He said San Miguel was prepared to comply with the tender offer rule, which requires an investor to offer to buy out minority shareholders if it buys at least 35 percent of a publicly held company.

Ang said the “very good frequency” in the congressional franchise of Liberty Telecom’s subsidiary was what attracted San Miguel to offer to acquire the firm.

Another favorable factor is that Liberty Telecom is partnering with Qatar Telecom (Qtel), the exclusive telecommunications service provider in Qatar, Ang added.

Liberty Telecom recently said it was increasing its authorized capital stock by P4.8 billion by issuing preferred shares.

It also said its board had approved the issuance of preferred shares to wi-Tribe Ltd. and White Dawn Solution Holdings Inc. as part of a plan to convert the two firms’ loans into equity. The preferred shares will be priced at P1.50 each.

wi-Tribe is a joint venture between Qtel and A.A. Tukri Group of Companies (Atco) of Saudi Arabia. Qtel has a 78-percent stake in the venture.

Liberty Telecom was incorporated on Jan. 14, 1994, primarily to engage in real and personal property business and to deal in stocks, bonds and other securities. It is the holding company of Liberty Broadcasting Network Inc. and Skyphone Logistics Inc.

Liberty Broadcasting has a congressional franchise, approved in 1956 and is valid until 2014, to operate radio broadcasting stations and television stations for international and domestic communications. Skyphone Logistics is the marketing and distribution partner of Liberty Broadcasting.

In April 2005, the management of Liberty decided to suspend its business operations due to lack of capital required to operate and grow the business. Four months later, Liberty filed before the Makati Regional Trial Court a petition for corporate rehabilitation as part of the company’s plan to continue normal operations. The court issued a stay order on all the company’s outstanding liabilities as of Aug. 15, 2005, effectively preventing creditors from foreclosing on its assets.

San Miguel recently initiated talks with Qtel on a possible joint venture partnership that will take advantage of opportunities in the wireless broadband, mobile and mobile broadband businesses in the Philippines.

San Miguel has been aggressively expanding, acquiring the stake of state-run pension fund Government Service Insurance System in power retailer Manila Electric Co. and agreeing to buy a 51-percent interest in oil refiner and retailer Petron Corp. from British investment fund Ashmore group.

DISSERVICE TO THE NATION – “Men are more often bribed by their loyalties and ambitions than money.” – Robert Jackson – (Philippines)

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on November 14, 2008

WHILE the monetary authorities among the world’s major economies have categorically declared that the world is definitely in recession, and there is no telling how long it will take to bottom out, we here in the Philippines are still obsessed with Congressional investigations that invariably end inconclusively.

It is dismaying to note that mainstream broadsheet newspapers and major television networks are like ambulance chasers dedicated to magnifying juicy issues and controversial personalities, and oblivious to the global financial crisis that will not spare any country, regardless of how large or small the economy maybe, from economic contraction.

So here we are. Instead of preparing, and looking for alternative sources and resources, to counteract expected decline in overseas employment and pari-passu corresponding drop in inward remittances from abroad; expected contraction in major exports, such as, electronics, garments, and fruits, and reduction in direct private foreign investments and official development assistance (ODAs), our congressional leaders are more preoccupied in extracting confessions, though not yet formally charged or accused, and admissions of wrongdoing, from former Agriculture Undersecretary Jocelyn “Jocjoc” Bolante which obsession is not only counter productive but also wasteful of people’s money and time.

Second, as the externally-induced financial crisis – originating from America – starts hitting landfall, a vicious spiral starts to spin.

That is, consumers become more cautious and parsimonious in their buying habits; banks start collecting from maturing loans while borrowers cannot pay, and when the banks’ liquidity gets threatened, the Government will either provide emergency assistance or buy in into the equity of banks which foreign governments have been doing to their own national banking system.

Needless to say, despite governments’ decisive moves and succor, the people have become wary, confused, and dazed.

Third, it is in this context of preparing for the worst, and hoping for the best, that the political leaders should address and pay attention to instead of grandstanding probes in aid of ambition.

In a word, many of our natural disasters, misconduct of public officials, and financial felonies are better investigated and resolved with the least fanfare and publicity when our officials have more important issues, such as, budget deficit, and diminishing exports, to address.

When all is said and done, it is disconcerting to be subjected to tedious and boorish congressional investigations that lead to nowhere unless the end objective is, say, to associate Jocjoc Bolante to the First Gentleman, and collaterally embarrass the President.

By the same token, with 2010 election just around the corner and the advent of a new administration, the filing of impeachment against President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is a waste of everybody’s time, and an exercise in futility.

There are so many critical issues to attend to than Jocjoc Bolante, or De la Paz.
