Company background

Metro Pacific Investments (MPIC) is a major infrastructure developer in the Philippines. Majority share holder is Hong Kong-listed First Pacific, which is controlled by Indonesia's Salim Group. Metro Pacific owns Manila Electric, Maynilad Water Services, Metro Pacific Tollways, and eight other hospitals. Manila Electric is the Philippines' largest power distributor, serving metropolitan Manila and nearby provinces.

Maynilad, meanwhile, distributes water to more than a million Philippine households mainly in the capital. Metro Pacific Tollways controls the 84km North Luzon Expressway and 45km Manila-Cavite Expressway. MPT has offered to take over the concession of 94km Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway. In October 2014, the Philippine government awarded a contract to MPIC-controlled Light Rail Manila Consortium to expand and run Manila's longest overhead railway. The company has also expanded abroad, taking a stake of nearly 33% in Bangkok-based Don Muang Tollway Public Co. and 70% of a Singapore-based liquefied natural gas company.

The chairman is Wharton-educated Manuel V. Pangilinan, who came from a middle-class family. Pangilinan began his career as a banker in 1970s Hong Kong. It was during this time he met Anthoni Salim in a client call, and from there, the two set up First Pacific, which has become an investment powerhouse.
