    The company’s interest and other income decreased by 13.5 percent to P750.7 million, from the P868 million last year, due to reduced forfeited collections.

    Property management fees and other services grew by 12.3 percent to P244.2 million, from the P217.3 million last year.

    The company said this was “primarily due to management fee and rate escalations for some of the projects under management ranging from 5 to 10 percent.”
