“The third quarter cash dividend payment total is about P3 billion, an increase of 3% over last year’s distribution in line with the company’s commitment in creating shareholder value,” Globe Chief Finance Officer Rizza Maniego-Eala said.

The approval of the third quarter cash dividend came as Globe maintained its strong momentum, posting all-time highs in revenues and EBITDA in the first six months of the year.  Revenues in the first half reached P62.9 billion, expanding 5% from a year earlier, driven by the demand for data-related products as customers continue to adapt to the digital lifestyle. EBITDA during the period hit a record high of P27.3 billion, up 6% from a year earlier.

Growth in topline continues to be delivered by different data revenue streams. Mobile continued its strong performance, growing 5% on the back of sustained gains in the mobile data business despite reduction in mobile subscriber base.
