PLDT expands in South with Philcom

PHILIPPINE Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) now owns Philcom Corp., a local exchange carrier with operations in southern Philippines.

            First, PLDT had to buy all of Philcom Corp.’s liabilities from PremierGlobal Resources Corp. (PGRC) for P340 million. PGR is a separate company that held all of Philcom Corp.’s debts.
