HISTORY Established in 1890, La Fabrica de Cerveza de San Miguel, Southeast Asia’s first brewery produced and bottled what would eventually become one of the bestselling beers in the region. Within the span of a generation, San Miguel Beer would become an icon among beer drinkers.

By 1914, San Miguel Beer was being exported from its headquarters in Manila to Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guam. A pioneer in Asia, San Miguel established a brewery in Hong Kong in 1948, the first local brewer in the crown colony. | | Today, San Miguel Beer–the Company’s flagship product–is one of the largest selling beers and among the top 10 beer brands in the world. While brewing beer is the company’s heritage, San Miguel subsequently branched out into the food and packaging businesses.

From the original cerveza that first rolled off the bottling line, San Miguel Corporation has since expanded its portfolio to produce a wide range of popular beverage, food and packaging products which have–for over a century–catered to generations of consumers’ ever changing tastes. It has also diversified into heavy industries including power and other utilities, mining, energy, tollways and airports.

The Company’s manufacturing operations extend beyond the Philippines to Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia. Its products are exported to major markets around the world. Continuing a tradition of product quality, San Miguel is capitalizing on its unique strengths in brands and distribution to weave its products more deeply into the fabric of everyday life. Not just in the Philippines but in the Asia-Pacific region.World Class PartnersSan Miguel’s partnerships with major international companies have given the Company access to the latest technologies and skills. Our marketplace experience, technical expertise, and innovation capabilities, while largely homegrown, also reflect our long term partnerships with world class players.

San Miguel’s joint venture partners include Hormel Foods Corporation, Yamamura Glass and Fuso Machine and Mold Manufacturing of Japan. A strategic equity investment in San Miguel by Japan’s leading brewer and global player, Kirin Brewery Company, Ltd. has further enhanced San Miguel’s competitive position in Asia, a region in which it is already well placed. |

STRATEGY
San Miguel’s goal is to help people enjoy and make progress in their lives through the many products and services that our company offers. We want to give every customer and consumer we touch access to the best we can offer—whether in terms of quality, or affordability or choice.

Being a vertically integrated power company gives SMC the opportunity to compete and maximize value in key segments of the value chain by driving and capitalizing on synergies among fuel sourcing, power generation and power distribution
In addition, ownership of mining assets provides a natural hedge to any increase in fuel prices, while interest of about 25% in Meralco provides SMC an information advantage over pure generation companies on supply-demand fundamentals.

* Sual Power Plant

The Sual Power Plant is a 2×500 MW coal-fired power plant located in Sual, Pangasinan on the Lingayen Gulf. This power plant is owned by TeaM Energy, which is a joint venture between Marubeni Corporation and Tokyo Electric Power Corporation.

* TPLEX

The 88.5 kilometer two-lane Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway, the company’s infrastructure investment in the north, was inaugurated in December 2013 by President Benigno S. Aquino III.

Ltd., the concession holder for developing and operating the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT7), a planned 22-kilometer-long rail line, starting from San Jose del Monte in Bulacan and ending in North Avenue in Quezon City.

* AVIATION * PHILIPPINE AIRLINES
Flag carrier Philippine Airlines is a major player in the global aviation industry and the one of Asia’s most dynamic carriers today, having unveiled a road map that seeks to transform “Asia’s first airline” into Asia’s airline of choice.
More than 70 years after PAL first took to the sky, the story of PAL continues to evolve. Under a new management that has a track record for successfully growing businesses and run a highly diversified conglomerate that includes some of the country’s strongest brands in virtually every growth sector of the Philippines, PAL is taking a tried-and-tested concept and applying the discipline of a three-pronged business strategy that’s simple yet bold: fleet modernization, network expansion and service innovation.
To jump start its transformation, PAL’s new management led by San Miguel Corporation president Ramon S. Ang, ordered 65 brand-new Airbus jets worth $9.5 billion, the largest aircraft purchase deal in Philippine aviation history.
Once the fleet modernization program is complete, PAL will operate the youngest and most modern fleet in the region. The new aircraft, which will augment PAL’s existing fleet over the next five years, will service existing and new routes, covering Asia, Australia, China, the Middle East, Europe and North America (US and Canada).
The carrier recently launched flights to several new destinations including Basco, Batanes for the domestic sector; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Darwin and Brisbane, Australia; and Guangzhou, China for the international sector. The Philippine flag carrier has also opened new routes to the Middle East - Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Riyadh and Dammam; as well as to Europe starting with London.
PAL’s transformation goes well beyond external appearance. It also entails further raising the standards of service and innovation on the ground and in the air – standards for which the PAL brand has always been celebrated and known for.
Inflight and ground services have been enhanced to address customer needs. Some of the changes include: a new customized passenger services system; exquisite inflight cuisine developed by international master chefs; inflight amenity innovations such as onboard iPads and inflight connectivity (PAL InAir) that enables phone calls and internet browsing initially on long-haul flights.
World-class aircraft maintenance also ensures the air-worthiness of each and every PAL flight.
Recognizing the evolving needs and preferences of customers, PAL has introduced a wide range of flight offerings aimed at providing convenience, quality service and affordability to its increasingly discerning but diverse customer base.
The new fare structures are designed to attract today’s savvy travellers who are cost-conscious yet continue to have high expectations in terms of both service quality.
Indeed, PAL is ready for the next journey, to become the global airline of choice – superior to its competitors at home and at par with the world’s best, but offering the best value for its customers. PAL will continue to carry the Philippine flag overseas and to be a source of national pride, guided by its principles of service excellence and social responsibility. As such, it aims to be responsive to the needs of its passengers and mindful of its role in serving the millions of Filipino migrant workers overseas. For indeed, PAL is not just an airline for Filipinos but also a partner in developing global travel and tourism.…...

The companies benchmarked are Disney-Pixar, Lucent-Alcatel, Monaco Coach Corporation, SMC Corporation, Infosmart-Cyber Merchants, Fidelity Bank of Nassau, Royal Bank of Canada, and AT&T. One of the issues presented in the scenario is that LEI was preparing to conduct a joint venture with Shang-wa when Transnational Electronics made an offer to acquire Shang-wa.

...The Supreme Military Command (SMC) is the most recent adaptation, formed in December 2012 after over 260 commanders of rebel groups met in Turkey. Security officials from Jordan, the United States and Britain attended as well as officials from other countries (O’Bagy, 2013). One of the objectives for the creation of the SMC was to combine resources, create legitimacy and solicit outside support. They are significantly outgunned against the Syrian army’s weaponry supplied by Russia and China. One issue providing an advantage to the rebels is lack of support in the military for use of air strikes. Most of the pilots in the Syrian air force are Sunni and there are concerns of futher defection if ordered to take action against civilians (Inside the free, 2012). The SMC may have unified many of the rebel groups but radical jihadists continue to operate independently and remain a threat to stabilization (O’Bagy, 2013). Illustrating the weak affiliation are events like the assassination of Kamal Hamami, a member of the SMC, by a rival rebel group in July 2013.
