MANILA, Philippines – Local fastfood giant Jollibee Foods Corp. has sealed a deal to acquire a majority stake, or 55 percent, in San Pin Wang, a beef noodle chain in China, for RMB 30 million or P195 million.

Jollibee said the transaction was pursuant to the agreement entered into by wholly-owned unit Jollibee Worldwide Pte. Ltd. and Guangxi Zong Kai Food and Beverage Investment Co. Ltd. on April 30, 2010.

The remaining 45 percent of San Pin Wang, which operates a chain of 34 low-priced beef noodle restaurants mostly in Nanning City in Guang Xi Province in South China, will still be owned by GZKFB.

The agreement also calls for both Jollibee Worldwide and GZKFB to infuse an additional RMB 20 million or P125 million in San Pin Wang to fund the beef restaurant chain’s expansion.

The joint venture, which will allow the Philippine-based company to penetrate South China, is expected to be operational within the first quarter of 2011, JFC said in a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE).

JFC currently operates two brands in the People’s Republic of China – Yonghe King in Shanghai which was acquired in 2004 and Hong Zhuang Yuan in Beijing. Hong Zhuang Yuan was bought in 2008.

As of the end of September 2010, the two businesses combined had a total of 236 stores and in the third quarter, accounted for 12 percent of the Jollibee Group’s worldwide system sales, a measure of all sales to consumers, both from company-owned and franchised stores.

Jollibee seals purchase of stake in Chinese chain

 by Jenniffer B. Austria  -Thursday, October 28, 2010    

Fastfood giant Jollibee Foods Corp. has finalized its acquisition of a 55-percent interest in Chinese beef noodle restaurant for RMB 30 million ($4.4 million).

Jollibee said in a disclosure to the stock exchange that wholly-owned subsidiary Jollibee Worldwide Pte. Ltd. signed a share purchase agreement with Guangxu Zong Kai Food Beverage Investment Co. Ltd. to buy 55 percent of San Pin Wang beef noodle resturant.

Guangxi Zong will keep 45 percent of San Pin Wang, its fastfood chain serving low-priced beef noodles.

Jollibee group and Guangxi Zong also agreed to put in additional investments of RMB 20 million on fastfood chain in anticipation of expansion.

The joint venture is expected to be operational within the first quarter of 2011.

San Pin Wang, which earlier projected annual sales of RMB 100 million in 2010, is profitable and has no debt, Jollibee said in an earlier statement. There are currently 34 San Pin Wang stores, located mostly in Nanning City in Guang Xi province in South China. It also operates two commissaries.

The San Pin Wang joint venture will provide Jollibee with a brand based in south China.

Jollibee operates two brands in China—Yonghe King based in Shanghai and Hong Zhuang Yuan in Beijing.

The two foreign businesses had a combined 236 stores at the end of September and accounted for 12 percent of the Jollibee group’s worldwide systemwide sales in the third quarter.

The Jollibee group operates the country’s largest food service network. It had 1,578 stores in the country as of end-September this year. It also had 375 stores abroad.

Jollibee owns Chowking, Greenwich, Red Ribbon and Manong Pepe’s chains and bought 70 percent of the Mang Inasal restaurant.

The company also added that it intends to maintain Mang Inasal's current personnel, subject to their meeting the group’s organizational standards. [Read about Mang Inasal's startup story here]

Philamlife to acquire 51% of Ayala Life

Joint venture with BPI to boost operations
By Doris Dumlao
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 23:14:00 08/26/2009

Filed Under: Company Information


PHILIPPINE AMERICAN Life and General Insurance Co. (Philamlife) has entered into a deal to acquire a 51-percent stake in the Ayala Group’s life insurance business to form a formidable bancassurance venture with local banking giant Bank of the Philippine Islands.

The biggest and most profitable insurance company in the country, a crown jewel that was earlier put up for grabs by the American International Group, has turned into an acquirer of a majority stake in BPI subsidiary Ayala Life Assurance Inc. (Ayala Life).

Under an agreement announced yesterday, Ayala Life will serve as the platform for BPI and Philamlife’s strategic bancassurance partnership.

“This partnership is a direct result of our strategy to focus on the core life insurance and wealth management business. Philamlife and BPI are strong and trusted brand names in the industry. This is an exciting and positive development that will significantly increase our distribution footprint and offer a substantially wider selection of quality life insurance products to BPI’s customers,” Philamlife president and chief executive Trevor Bull said in a statement.

BPI president and CEO Aurelio Montinola III said the joint venture was fully in line with BPI’s vision to offer a full range of financial products and services to its customers.

“We believe that there are significant cross selling opportunities on both sides. We feel that in the same way that Philamlife will have access to our customer base for life insurance products, BPI will have reciprocal access to Philamlife’s customers for banking products, ” Montinola said.

BPI Capital and ING acted as financial advisers to BPI while Deutsche Bank acted as sole financial adviser to the Philamlife group for the transaction. The joint venture is subject to regulatory approvals. The value of the deal was not disclosed.The joint venture is seen benefiting from the combined synergies, high quality resources and strength of two leading companies in the Philippines’ financial industry. Philamlife is expected to bring insurance distribution, product development, and innovation to the joint venture, particularly in the area of bancassurance, while gaining exclusive access to BPI’s customer base via its extensive branch network.

With 158 years of experience in the local banking industry, BPI is the most valuable Philippine bank with P146 billion in market capitalization as of yesterday.
