GT Capital told the stock exchange it signed a subscription agreement to acquire 11 million common shares from Federal Land’s authorized capital stock worth P1.1 billion.
The property firm raised P5 billion early this month from the issuance of corporate notes. The issue size was increased from the original P3 billion amid strong demand from institutional investors.
