Net cash provided by operating activities was PHP 6,976,160,000 compared to net cash used in operating activities of PHP 5,170,457,000 a year ago. Acquisitions of property and equipment were PHP 300,277,000 compared to PHP 206,843,000 a year ago. Return on Equity was 9.3% compared to 16.7% a year ago.
