SM Prime Holdings, Inc.

Company Background

SM Prime Holdings used to be the mall development arm of SM Investments, the publicly listed holding company of the Sy family, the Philippines' richest. But in 2013, the Sy family decided to consolidate its property assets under SM Prime. The consolidation process saw the Sy-controlled condominium builder SM Development, leisure property firm Highlands Prime and privately held SM Land being folded into SM Prime.

The restructuring made SM Prime the Philippines' biggest real estate company and one of the largest in the region in terms of market capitalization.

With its enlarged scale, SM Prime in early 2014 launched a five-year plan that calls for spending 400 billion pesos to almost double its real estate projects and sales by 2019. The plan includes expanding the company's shopping centers in the Philippines, from 48 at the end of 2013, to 74. This is on top of operations in China, where the company has five malls.

SM Prime is managed by Hans Sy, a son of Henry Sy, SM Group founder and the Philippines' richest man.
