Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (“MPIC” or the “Company”) today reported Consolidated Core Net Income of P16.2 billion for the first nine months of 2023, up 37% from P11.8 billion a year earlier.  

Improved financial and operating results from MPIC’s holdings delivered a 31% increase in contribution from operations, mainly driven by the strong performance of the power generation business and higher water tariff for the water concession.

Reported Net Income attributable to the Parent Company increased 22% to P16.1 billion compared with P13.1 billion last year, which had the benefit of gains from the acquisition of Landco Pacific Corporation.
