Lifestyle | Cebu Landmasters Sustains Growth Momentum with Record 1.55B H1 Net Income, up 40% yoy

Cebu Landmasters Inc (CLI) is one of the VisMin top developers in the country. They have a partnership with the Davao-based family to build the Davao Global Township, an award winning township not only the Philippines but also in Asia.

Here's a story of CLI's continued growth and presence. Let's check it out...

Cebu Landmasters’ Davao Global Township (DGT) envisioned to be the preferred central business district in Davao has already completed land development and is now selling commercial  lots. The first 4 towers of The East Village at DGT, the township’s first six-tower residential project, are also now almost 100% sold.

On the back of strong sales and project completions, leading VisMin developer Cebu Landmasters, Inc. (CLI) achieved its highest H1 net income performance of Php1.55 billion, an increase of 40% versus H1 2021. Without the adjustment from CREATE law, CLI grew its earnings attributable to parent by 18% from the reported Php 1.1 billion of the same period last year.


Real estate sales also grew by a robust 45% from Php5 billion to Php7.36 billion year on year. All other business units continued to improve performance as the firm fast-tracked construction and strengthened operations. These resulted in higher percentage of completion, paving the way for more units to qualify for revenue collection. Gross profit margin was maintained at a healthy 45% as the company strongly mitigated inflationary pressures while sustaining 100% of its construction operations.


CLI’s economic housing brand Casa Mira accounted for the largest share of H1 2022 revenues indicative of the significant housing backlog in key VisMin cities. A hefty 40% of H1 2022 revenues came from Cebu; with Davao following at 16%; Cagayan de Oro, 15%; Iloilo, 12%; and the balance from Ormoc, Bacolod, Dumaguete and Bohol. With CLI’s portfolio now encompassing over 15 key VisMin locations, the company sees increased contributions from its new expansion areas in the coming quarters. 


The listed firm’s first-half leasing business expanded by 20% year-on-year as both office demand and retail foot traffic saw a healthy rebound especially in Cebu. With heightened tourism activity accompanied by increased mobility in Vismin, CLI’s hospitality business registered a 271% growth as occupancy rates significantly improved.


CLI’s capital expenditures rose by 42% to Php5.5 billion from last year’s Php3.88 billion, with most of the amount earmarked for project development while 22% was spent on land banking including the purchase of a 17-hectare expansion site in Butuan City. CLI is also gearing up for its large-scale townships in Davao, Cagayan de Oro and Minglanilla in Cebu as these are now moving strongly at different stages of development. 


Davao Global Township (DGT), envisioned to be the premier central business district in Davao, was recently inaugurated with the site development completion of the 23-hectare estate. The company also announced that limited commercial lots were being made available for sale to select developers and investors in the estate, awarded as Best Township in Asia 2021 by PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards. The first 4 towers of The East Village at DGT, the township’s first residential offering, is now 90% sold in only 4 months since its March 2022 launch date.


These positive developments were further reinforced by CLI’s announcement that it would increase its retail bonds offering to Php8 billion from Php5 billion and a Php3 billion oversubscription. Strong interest from institutional buyers prodded the move. Meanwhile, the maiden retail bonds of CLI was rated PRS Aa plus with stable outlook by PhilRatings on the back of sound management and strategy with a sustained competitive advantage in the Visayas and Mindanao markets.


Jose Soberano III, CLI chairman and CEO, disclosed: “We are on track to achieve another record year and there are several strong indicators for CLI to achieve its growth guidance of 20% this year. With our expanding portfolio and with our operations tailored to provide the strongest ‘ground game’ in the region, CLI is best-positioned to address the growing housing backlog while extending best-in-class turnaround times and customer service.”

Exciting projects will soon be rising with CLI in many cities in the VisMin area.

Apo Agua Donates Water Pipelines to Barangay Tawantawan

Present during the turnover of the water pipelines were (R-L) Congressman Isidro Ungab, Davao City Water District General Manager Mildred Aviles, Apo Agua Operations Head Shake A. Tuason, Apo Agua Project Manager Dorcas Ho, Tawantawan Barangay Kagawad Jimmy Enoch, and Davao City 3rd District Councilor Alberto “Abet” Ungab.

Further strengthening its long-term commitment to its host communities, Apo Agua Infrastuctura, Inc. (Apo Agua) recently turned over 2,220 meters of water pipelines to Barangay Tawantawan in Baguio District. The barangay will use the donated pipelines to expand its existing water system, which will help augment its water supply distribution.

These additional pipelines will complete Tawantawan’s second water pipeline system, which will tap their current water source to the barangay’s newly constructed water reservoir. In turn, this will help increase the barangay’s water supply, addressing the urgent need for ample water supply and improving the lives of over 600 households.

“This donation is such a big help to our community as this is one of our main problems in the barangay. We are already using the pipes, and it has served more water to 600 households. I hope to have more projects with Apo Agua that can help benefit the constituents of Barangay Tawantawan,” said Barangay Captain Ricardo Gierran.

Third District Representative Abet Ungab, Tawantawan Kagawad Jimmy Enoch, Apo Agua Operations Head Shake A. Tuason, and Third District Councilor Isidro Ungab pose with one out of the thirty-seven rolls of pipes donated to Barangay Tawantawan.


"Dako among pasalamat sa Apo Agua sa ilong kasing-kasing na paghatag ug pipes apan nadungagan og patubig ang among barangay. Pito ka purok ang nakabenepisyo sa proyekto. Nagtipon pud mi alang sa nakatabang na Water System Management nga seminar ni Apo Agua para sa paglambo sa among pagmentinar ug padagan sa among patubig sa barangay (We thank Apo Agua for providing us with additional pipes that increased our water distribution. Seven puroks from our barangay have benefited from this project. We also thank them for conducting an informative Water System Management that will help improve our water system maintenance and operations),” said Elma Casinillo, member of Tawantawan's Barangay Waterworks and Sanitation Association (BWASA).

“As we work towards completing the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project (DCBSWP) and delivering water across Davao City, we also continue to look at opportunities to further contribute to our host communities. While Tawantawan is one of the host communities that will not directly benefit from the DCBWSP, we hope that introducing smaller but sustainable water solutions in their area will help address their basic water needs," said Anna Lu, President of Apo Agua.

Delivery of 2,220m pipes and couplings endorsed by Apo Agua Representative, Bianca Gempesaw, and received by Barangay Captain Ricardo Gierran.

Apo Agua also extended its support to Davao City Water District by helping ramp up its water truck initiative to District II, while the DCBWSP is at its final stretch of completing its project construction. In addition, Apo Agua is currently conducting road restorations from its pipelaying activities at multiple sites across fourteen (14) barangays in the Second and Third Districts of Davao City.

Apo Agua recently announced that it is taking the lead role in the construction of Davao City Water District’s Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project to fast-track its completion that will provide 300 million liters of safe water daily to over one million DavaoeƱos.

With Apo Agua in the lead, it would aggressively pursue as many construction work streams as possible, in parallel with each other, as the main catch-up strategy. Despite a very tight timetable, Apo Agua targets start of operations by the end of 2022, considering a swift and seamless transition.

Apo Agua to Fast-Track Davao Bulk Water Project

Davao City is one of the highly-urbanized cities in the Philippines. That being said, water is one of the resources that should be sustained and delivered to the stakeholders. Apo Agua will speed up their project in Davao and serve to the people.

Here's the story of continued efforts by Apo Agua:

Apo Agua Infrastructura, Inc. is taking the lead role in the construction of Davao City Water District’s Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project to fast-track its completion that will provide 300 million liters of safe water daily to over one million DavaoeƱos.

Apo Agua made the decision following setbacks in the timetable for the construction of the project due to complications brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and other contributing internal factors. Prior to this development, the project’s Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Contractor, J.V. Angeles Construction Corporation had full responsibility for the construction works. With Apo Agua in the lead, it would aggressively pursue as many construction work streams as possible, in parallel with each other, as the main catch-up strategy. Despite a very tight timetable, Apo Agua targets project completion by the end of 2022, considering a swift and seamless transition.

With the completion of the project, Davao City can experience sustained water supply. This kind of projects will really benefit the people of Davao City as the city still is one of the premier gateways in the country. Basically, water is essential.
