The company’s robust balance sheet, with total assets worth P12.67 billion, up from P11.5 billion in 2017, positions us for further expansion in Visayas and Mindanao.

Cebu Landmasters’ Casa Mira South was recently awarded as Best Housing Development (Cebu) by the Philippines Property Awards.

CLI plans to expand its footprint to the municipality of Panglao in Bohol and the VisMin cities of General Santos, Butuan, Ormoc, and Roxas.

“Growth of real estate market in the Visayas and Mindanao remains robust and we bring our local real estate mastery to VisMin by expanding to other key cities in the region,” CLI chairman and CEO Jose Soberano III highlighted.

By the first half of 2018, CLI would have fully utilized the P2.02 billion in net listing proceeds for key land acquisitions and joint venture investments.

The developer has also applied for the issuance of corporate notes at P5 billion, which debt watcher Philippine Ratings Services Corp. rated PRS Aa.
