Shell widens losses to P13.9-B in 9 months; P1B investment set for import facility

With additional valuation-anchored inventory losses and one-off charges booked, the net loss of listed firm Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (PSPC) had widened to P13.9 billion in nine months this year. That’s a complete reversal of the P4.4 billion net income it posted last year, when oil prices were at more predictable state and there had been no pandemic-induced uncertainties disrupting oil markets. It specified that if the P5.7 billion inventory valuation losses had not turned up, the company’s net loss in the third quarter should have been at leaner P700 million versus P900 million in the second quarter. And without the one-off charges that stood at P7.5 billion, the oil firm’s net loss should have been trimmed to P6.4 billion within the January-September stretch. The one-off charges came about because of the closure of its refining operations that subsequently prompted the conversion of its Tabangao facility into a world-class import terminal. But while the company works on improving its financial performance in the coming months, Pilipinas Shell President and CEO Cesar G. Romero announced that they will be re-investing roughly P1.0 billion in the next few years “to fully transform Tabangao into a world class facility that will support its marketing growth aspirations.” Part of the company’s major step this year is to set on stream the commercial operations of its 54-million liter capacity terminal in Subic to underpin its supply chain, primarily to serve the demand of its Northern Luzon customers; while its Tabangao import facility will cater to the needs of customers in other parts of Luzon and Northern Visayas. To complete the loop, its Northern Mindanao Import Facility (NMIF) in Cagayan de Oro will be supporting the rest of Visayas and well as customers in Mindanao. Pilipinas Shell said it now “has a more resilient network of three medium-range import terminals with sufficient finished products capacity to effectively serve the demands of customers nationwide.” The firm indicated that despite the challenges, it prioritized business strategies that shall result in cash preservation for the company. As of third quarter’s end, the savings logged by the company stood at P2.5 billion; and this is seen sustained at the level of P2.0 billion until the end of this year. “Savings of P1.2 billion were generated from OPEX (operating expenses); with P1.3 billion from CAPEX (capital expenditure),” Shell emphasized. While the company still navigates the tough terrain of business induced by the coronavirus pandemic, Romero asserted their overall frame “remains optimistic,” as he noted that the “government’s efforts to gradually reopen the economy by prudently relaxing quarantine restrictions are slowly giving elbow room for the economy to recover.” He specified that for Shell, “the wins are coming in gradually as more businesses operate at increased capacity in the areas of manufacturing and transportation.” The company chief executive expounded “our balance sheet, technical capability and resources are solid; and serve as well in continuing to provide Filipinos with high quality fuel products despite the challenging environment.” Parallel to the firm’s aspirations for demand and financial rebound, Romero noted they are also making “the right sustainable decision to protect the long-term interests of our shareholders.” The company’s gearing had risen to 47-percent, and that was mainly attributed to “lower equity from net loss rather than an increase in net debt,” with it emphasizing that “excluding the impact of the refinery one-off charges, the company’s gearing stands at 41-percent.” Romero indicated “the pandemic has forced us to rethink the way we do things, while ensuring the quality of service that Filipinos expect from us.”.....»»

Kobe Bryant s Basketball Hall of Fame induction moved to 2021

By The Associated Press Kobe Bryant and the rest of this year’s Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame class won’t be inducted in 2020 — or at the birthplace of basketball. The Hall announced Friday that the enshrinement ceremony will be held May 13-15, 2021, and the entire festivities will be moved to Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. This year was to be a highlight for the Hall of Fame, located in Springfield, Massachusetts. Bryant, killed in January in a helicopter crash, headlined a decorated class featuring Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett that would have been enshrined in the recently renovated museum. But the coronavirus pandemic scuttled those plans and hit the Hall so hard that it eliminated several full-time positions and cut senior management pay in the 25-40% range. Hall of Fame President and CEO John Doleva says the rescheduled enshrinement festivities, the diminished museum visitation and the uncertainty regarding the Hall’s college and high school basketball events this fall “has forced us to make these very difficult decisions.” Mohegan Sun is a long-time partner of the Hall. Doleva says it can a operate a “near-bubble” to provide a secure environment for guests......»»

Enlisted volleyball stars on duty in fight against COVID-19

Enlisted volleyball players and coaches are working behind the scenes in the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19). Athletes who are part of the different branches of the Armed Forces are serving in their mother units, heeding the call of duty as the country battles the global pandemic. While others are actively deployed in the field to help curb the contagion, there are those like women’s national team assistant coach Kungfu Reyes who work inside the camps.     “So far nasa work pa rin kami. May mga tasking for decontamination sa tropa namin, kami nasa QRF (Quick Reaction Force),” Reyes, who is a Staff Sergeant in the Philippine Army, told ABS-CBN Sports. Since Metro Manila and then the whole of Luzon went under a community quarantine, military personnel were called to report to their camps for deployment orders.     In the case of Reyes, who is also the head coach of the Army Lady Troopers in the Premier Volleyball League, he and his crew are tasked to work inside Fort Bonifacio. “Nasa loob lang kami,” said the University of Sto. Tomas Tigresses mentor. “May quarantine area kami para sa mga tropa na nasa checkpoint. Ngayon kami nag-aayos ng facilities namin.” Jovelyn Gonzaga, who is an Army Corporal, is also based in the Taguig camp. She and other enlisted members of the Lady Troopers are just waiting for their deployment orders. “Nandito kami ngayon sa camp, naka-quarantine lang din pero ready for deployment,” said the national team member. “For now naghihintay lang kami ng instructions,” said the Ilongga hitter. “In case ma-deploy kami sa repacking [of relief goods] at sa mess para sa pag-ready ng mga food ng mga sundalo na galing sa deployment.” Gonzaga explained that their work if given the order is to serve the frontline soldiers deployed in the field who will be quarantined. “Kami ang mag-ready ng food nila kapag ma-quaratine sila dito sa camp,” she said. “Kasi after nila mag-checkpoint and all, makaka-quarantine sila for 15 days [dito].” Meanwhile, the 30th Southeast Asian Games silver medal winning men’s team head coach Dante Alinsunurin, setter Jessie Lopez and winger Ranran Abdilla of the Philippine Air Force are on duty in Villamor Airbase.           “Nasa base po kami mga Air Force, duty kami dito katulad nang ginagawa namin ‘pag walang laro kasama si coach Dante at iba pang national team,” said the Airman 2nd Class Lopez. Just like their counterparts in the army, Lopez, SSG. Alinsunurin and Airman 1st Class Abdilla and Jeffrey Malabanan, a reserve in the national squad, are on standby for deployment.    “Naka-ready naman po kami lahat dito sa base in case na i-deploy kami sa labas kung need po,” said the veteran playmaker. “Kaya di rin kami maka-uwi sa family namin. Halos lahat kami nandito.”.....»»
