BPI disclosure says: "We confirm discussions with the Lucio Tan Group and will make the appropriate disclosures in accordance with the PSE disclosure rules. In the meantime, we request suspension of trading on BPI shares today." On the other hand, PNB disclosure says: "In reply, we confirm that there have been discussions between the Lucio Tan Group and the Ayala Group. We will make the appropriate disclosures within the day once we obtain the necessary board approvals. The formal
disclosure will be sent to the regulators in accordance with disclosure rules and procedures. Meanwhile, we request for the voluntary suspension of trading of PNB shares starting today."


The trading of shares of both companies was suspended accordingly.

As of September 30, 2012, BPI reports a consolidated assets totaling 867.31 Billion Pesos while PNB reports 320.73 Billion Pesos. If the merger/acquisition will pursue, the outgoing entity will have a total combined assets of 1.19 Trillion Pesos. That will be slightly above BDO's total assets of 1.17 Million Pesos, making it the biggest bank in the country.

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.

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.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store and I would like to share the steps I took in order to secure my account and get a new passbook. The steps outlined here is for a BPI savings account but generally the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and the most crucial step you need to immediately do is to contact your bank either through phone or personally reporting it to the branch where you opened the account. This will ensure that no funds will get out. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 89-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the lost. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for Replacement of Passbook This can be a simple replacement of the lost passbook but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes.
