Company Background

LT Group was formed through the consolidation of businesses controlled by Lucio Tan, the Philippines' second-richest man in 2013, according to Forbes magazine. The listed conglomerate was previously known as Tanduay Holdings, which held Tan's spirits business. In 2012, shareholders approved the company's transformation from a liquor maker into a holding company called LT Group.

In addition to its liquor business, operated by its Tanduay subsidiary, LT is also active in tobacco, through its Fortune Tobacco unit, financial services, through Philippine National Bank, and real estate development, through Eton Properties Philippines. Tan, through companies he own, also has majority ownership in flag carrier Philippine Airlines and in-flight service provider MacroAsia Corp., but these companies are not yet included in LT Group.

Tan holds a chemical engineering from Far Eastern University in Manila. Known for his philanthropy, Tan has also been involved in legal disputes with the government, particularly over tax issues. LT Group is managed by Tan's son, Michael, who serves as president of the conglomerate. The younger Tan previously ran Asia Brewery.
