According to the Andrew Tan-led group, its growth was led by its main subsidiaries Emperador Distillers Inc., Megaworld Corp., and Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc., which collectively contributed 81 percent of the P8.3-billion earnings.

“All our major businesses continue to perform well within our expectations. We are confident that we can sustain our robust growth for the rest of the year,” said Andrew Tan, chairman of AGI.
