Aboitiz Power Corporation (AP) made a disclosure today regarding the second tranche of their PHP 30 billion debt. The company filed the request under the debt securities program of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The request was registered with the SEC under its shelf registration program on June 19, 2017. It is equivalent to PHP 10 billion and an additional oversubscription of up to PHP 5 billion.
AP will offer it to the public in the fourth quarter of 2018.
The proceeds will be used to:
- Refinance the medium term loan of Therma Power Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary
- Repay its short-term loan obligations
- For general corporate purposes
The Second Tranche Bonds has a credit rating of “PRS Aaa,” with a stable outlook from the Philippine Ratings Services Corporation. Apparently, it is of the highest quality with minimal credit risk — an indication of firm capacity to repay its obligation.
A stable outlook also means that the company can retain the rating within the next 12 months.
Aboitiz Power had a net income of PHP 9.12 billion for 2018. This figure is 6 percent lower than the PHP 9.72 billion recorded in the same period in 2017.
Furthermore, the one-time non-recurring loss of PHP 1.39 billion during the period was brought about by net foreign exchange losses.
If this one-time loss were not included, the core net income would have been flat at PHP 10.51 billion versus the recorded PHP 10.46 billion in 2017.
