FLI is an issuer that has found a home in the organized market, having built and nurtured an investor base that is able to meet its issuances. New listings from FLI are also an indicator of exciting developments occurring in the real estate industry. And the presence of the registered market allows issuers like FLI to bring their plans to fruition.

 

Today’s listing brings the total amount of FLI’s bonds in the PDEx trading platform to PhP 29 Billion. This event also marks the seventeenth listing for the year and brings the year-to-date total of new listings to PhP 182.75 Billion and the total level of tradable corporate debt instruments to P461.21 billion issued by 30 companies with 86 securities.

 

PDS Group President & CEO Cesar B. Crisol said: “As FLI remains active in developing new landscapes within its target growth trajectory, the future is bright. In support of this growth, we hope to see FLI introducing various types of investment instruments with well-spread-out debt maturities, including longer tenors that may be tapped by the Issuer community. These efforts redound to the general community of investors facilitating these holders’ efforts to achieve effective diversification.”

 

FLI President & CEO Josephine G. Yap remarked: “We are very delighted to witness the strong demand for the FLI Bonds which resulted in an oversubscription of almost twice the base amount of P5 Billion, enabling us to easily exercise the P2 Billion oversubscription option that was approved by the SEC.”

Mejia, BPI Capital Corporation President Daniel Gabriel Montecillo, BDO Capital & Investment Corporation President Eduardo V.
