Prime Orion Philippines, Inc.

Company Description
Prime Orion Philippines, Inc. (POPI), originally named Philippine Orion Properties, Inc., was incorporated on May 19, 1989 as an investment holding company. The merger of the Company with First Lepanto Corporation paved the way for the entry of the Guoco Group of Hong Kong through its affiliate, Guoco Assets (Philippines), Inc., as principal shareholder of the Company. In 1994, the Company was renamed as Guoco Holdings (Philippines), Inc., and again changed its name to the present one on January 4, 2002.

POPI, at present, has interests in real estate and property development, leasing of warehouses and non-life insurance, with the following intermediate holding companies: Orion Land Inc. (OLI), Orion I Holdings Philippines, Inc., and OE Holdings, Inc. OLI wholly owns Tutuban Properties, Inc., (TPI) which holds the lease and development rights over Tutuban Center in downtown Divisoria. At present, TPI continues to revitalize the operations of the Center, with the upgrade of its buildings and facilities, rezoning of the mall and introduction of unique retail and wholesale concepts in Tutuban.

On February 24, 2016, POPI entered into a deed of subscription with Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) whereby ALI will subscribe to 51.06% equity interest in POPI. With the entry of ALI, POPI will be able to benefit from the expertise and resources of ALI and optimize the development of its property assets, especially Tutuban Center.
