Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) maintained a strong growth trend in the first nine months of 2023, driven by the continuing resilience of the residential market and vibrant consumer activity despite ongoing macroeconomic challenges. ALI posted a total net income of P18.4 billion, up 38% year-on-year, and consolidated revenues of P98.9 billion, 15% higher year-on-year.

ALI grew its property development revenues by 4% to P57.2 billion from higher residential completion, stable bookings, and office unit sales. Residential revenues increased by 4% to P47.5 billion, while office-for-sale revenues registered a 31% growth from last year to P2.8 billion. Meanwhile, revenues from commercial and industrial lots totaled P6.9 billion, 8% less than last year.

Residential sales reservations in the first nine months increased by 11% year-on-year to P85.9 billion. Third-quarter sales reached P27.6 billion, adding to the P58.3 billion sales generated in the first half. The in-demand projects during the period were Alveo’s Park East Place in BGC, AyalaLand Premier’s (ALP) Ciela in Carmona, Cavite, Arcilo in Nuvali, Laguna, and Parklinks South Tower in Quezon City, and Avida Towers Makati Southpoint.

Ayala Land launched five new projects in the in the third quarter with a combined value of P4.4 billion, namely: AyalaLand Premier’s Ayala Greenfield Estates Parkside Terraces Tranche 2, Andacillo Tranche 5, and Lanewood Hills Phase 3 Batch 3, Avida’s first mid-rise condominium offering in Nuvali, Solara Park Storeys, and Amaia’s Scapes Cabuyao Sector 4. These developments bring Ayala Land’s total launches to 11 projects valued at P36.3 billion.

Commercial leasing revenues were 32% higher year-on-year to P30.8 billion due to improving occupancy and rents. Shopping center revenues reached P15.7 billion, 40% better than a year ago, on account of higher occupancy and rents due to healthy operations. Office leasing revenues grew 7% to P8.8 billion due to stable occupancy and higher rents from its solid BPO and corporate tenant base. Meanwhile, hotel and resort revenues significantly jumped by 62% from last year to P6.3 billion due to higher domestic business travel and local tourist activity, which pushed up occupancy and room rates.

“The strong performance of our various business lines in the first nine months of 2023 is a testament to the continuing resilience of the residential market and vibrant consumer activity despite ongoing macroeconomic challenges. This positive trend, guided by our new focus on quality, people, sustainability, and growth, will enable us to strengthen our diversified portfolio and further enhance earnings,” said ALI President and CEO Ms. Anna Ma. Margarita Bautista-Dy. “We will continue to focus on high-value market opportunities and meeting our operating targets to sustain our momentum for the year,” she added.
