Company Background

JG Summit Holdings is the umbrellas company for Filipino-Chinese tycoon John Gokongwei's business ventures. Gonkongwei was the Philippines' fifth-richest man in 2013, according to media outlet Forbes. The conglomerate has interests in food and beverages (Universal Robina), property development (Robinsons Land), aviation (Cebu Air), financial services (Robinsons Bank) and petrochemicals (JG Summit Olefins).

Universal Robina is one of the country's leading snack and beverage manufacturers. It operates production facilities in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and will soon do so in Myanmar. Robinsons Land is the country's second biggest mall developer; Cebu Pacific is the Philippines' largest budget carrier. At present, the company is headed by Gokongwei's brother, CEO James Go. The tycoon's son, Lance, is the conglomerate's president and chief operating officer. Lance, who runs Cebu Pacific, Universal Robina and Robinsons Land, has a double degree in finance and applied science from the University of Pennsylvania.

JG Summit also has around 27% stake in power distribution company Manila Electric, which it bought from San Miguel last year. It also has an 8% stake in Philippines Long Distance Telephone after the dominant carrier merged with the then Gokongwei-led Digital Telecommunications Philippines via a share-swap agreement.
