    PLDT to buy 52% stake in Sun Cellular operator Digitel

    Telecommunications giant Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) on Tuesday confirmed rumors that it is acquiring a majority stake in Gokongwei-owned telecom firm Digitel Teleommunications Philippines, Inc. (DTPI), which is doing business in the country as mass-based telco operator Sun Cellular.

    PLDT is set to buy 51.5% of shares from Digitel worth P69.2 billion, to be paid through an offering of new shares at P2,500 each to JG Summit Holdings, mother company of Digitel.

    Assuming minority shareholders agree to the buy-in, the total transaction is pegged at P74.1 billion.

    Following the acquisition, a representative of JG Summit Holdings will have a seat at the board of directors of PLDT.

    The two telco giants are expected to complete the acquisition process by the second quarter of 2011.

    PLDT said it is planning to keep Digitel’s mobile operations separate and intact, giving the company a total of three telecommunications firms under its belt, aside from Smart and Red Mobile.

    The company added that it company will make available to Digitel subscribers the depth and breadth of PLDT service offerings, specifically on 3G and broadband.

    Digitel is set to bring approximately 450,000 subscribers to PLDT’s massive 1.8 million subscriber base in terms of fixed line operations.

    Digitel and JG Summit Holdings earlier today disclosed a voluntary trading halt due to a "major shareholder transaction," fuelling speculations that PLDT is indeed acquiring the young telco player. — TJD, GMA News

    di naman magiging ceo si john ... kasi bibilhin ni PLDT ang minority stock ng Digitel as well .. so medyo lamang pa rin si PLDT kahit nag share swap sila ni Goks hehehe.. saka itataas nila ang common stocks to accomodate the acquisition hehehe in short liliit lalo ang mga shares nila hehehe in terms of percentage heheheh


    guys dont worry about the unlimited ng SUN as per MVP

    "The brand equity of Sun Cellular will enhance our mobile offerings, so we wish to preserve this moving forward," said PLDT Group chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan. "We will also retain the unlimited products and services of the group, so that consumers are able to continue benefitting from them."

    Eto ang reply ng Globe:

    With a change in perception, your business would be able to move forward against aggressive competition

    by Globe Business on Thursday, March 31, 2011 at 9:07am

    There was a giant who was bullying and harassing the children in the village. One day, a 17-year-old shepherd boy came to visit his brothers and asked, "Why don't you stand up and fight the giant?" The brothers were terrified and they replied, "Don't you see he is too big to hit?"
    But David said, "No, he is not too big to hit, he is too big to miss." The rest is history. We all know what happened. David killed the giant with a sling.
    Same giant, different perception.
