Money: Cebu Pacific’s Initial Public Offering (IPO)

Have you heard the latest news on Cebu Pacific?

It’s not about their latest promo of cheap air fares.

It was all about Cebu Pacific’s Initial Public Offering (IPO)




Cebu Pacific’s IPO

Cebu Pacific is planning to offer 125.25 Million stocks worth 12 Billion pesos. It means that the price per stock is around 95 pesos. Although they will be listed on the local stock market, the company targets institutional and international investors for their initial offering.


The company originally planned the IPO in 2008 but postponed it due to the global economic crisis that occurred on the 4th quarter of that year. They said that the funds will be used to further their expansion in the ever growing market of air travel. The company has not yet revealed the exact date of their initial offering.




Cebu Pacific has been gaining strength in the previous years, beating their rival Philippine Airlines (PAL) in the domestic market. It also trimmed the market share of shipping industries by offering very low airplane tickets. Due to its increasing dominance, Cebu Pacific reported 1.78 Billion pesos of net income in 2009.

What is an IPO?

IPO or Initial Public Offering refers to the time when a company (whether large or small) issues common stock or shares to the public for the first time. It means that the public may now buy and trade stocks in the stock market. In the Philippines, PSE or the Philippine Stock Exchange is the most popular stock exchange entity.

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
