SM: Asean’s biggest property group

SM Prime Holdings Inc., Asean’s biggest property group, according to Hans T. Siy, president, will grow by 10 percent yearly in the next five years as it budgets P400 billion as capital expenditure.
 
By the end of 2018, SM Prime expects that it will have 10.96 million sq.m. of gross leaseable mall space out of 74 malls in the Philippines and 11 China-based malls, a total of 139,628 units of launched residential units, 460,000 sq.m., of leaseable office space out of 7 office buildings, and 2,187 hotel rooms, according to Jeffrey Lim, SM Prime chief finance officer.
 
“This will enable us to grow and improve the economic condition of the communities that we are in,” said Lim.
 
It will also “double” the company’s profit and revenues for the period from the 2013-reported P16.27 billion profit and P32.2 billion revenue.
 
This amounts to a compounded growth rate of 10 percent for both revenues and profits according to Lim, and a “mid-teen” return on equity goal.
 
Currently, SM Prime’s ROE stands at 11 percent. Sy said this  ensures that the company remains the biggest property group in the ASEAN region.
 
Sy also said that amidst all this, they expect the company’s mall and residential business to remain the group’s growth driver. 
 
The 5-year goal means the company will increase its mall GFA by 10 percent over the period, while the residential unit will see its combined unit launches grow 12-15 percent, noted Lim.
 
Henry Sy, Jr., SM Prime chairman, said the residential unit is looking to venture into the economic housing segment, priced at P1.5 million and below, as the unit diversifies  its portfolio.
 
Sy also said that as the Philippines enter into the integrated ASEAN economy, SM Prime is also looking at opportunities in neighboring countries, though the plan remains at the drawing board.
 
SM Prime is set to issue P20 billion in retail bonds this year which it will use to partly finance this year’s capital spending.
 
The company is also looking at a syndicated dollar debt to finance its China expansion.
 
Lim said funding for the medium-term plan will continue to be calibrated as the years go by.
 
For the year, SM Prime expects to open SM City Cauayan, Angono, and SM Zibo in China, which will add 280,000 sq.m. of GFA to the current mall portfolio.
 
The company is also looking at expanding its SM Megamall, SM City Bacolod, and Lipa, which together with new mall openings will increase the total mall portfolio to 7.5 million sq.m. By year-end.
 
SM Prime is likewise launching three new residential projects with 7,000 combined units by the second half of the year. New towers in four existing projects will likewise be built ti accomodate increasing demand.
 
For the office space, SM Prime is breaking ground ofr Three E-com by this quarter while topping-off of Five E-com is set by the third quarter of this year.
 
The hotels and convention center business meanwhile is expected to start contruction of Park Inn Clark by the latter part of the year, while the company plans to launch SMX Bacolod by the fourth quarter of the year.
