Cost and expenses, meanwhile, rose 13% for the period in review to P1.770 billion from P1.566 billion. Labor costs increased 10.5% to P619 million from P560.6 million due to more volume that needed handling.

Other expenses for the period reached P315.2 million, up 36.9% from last year’s P230.2 million due to higher processing expenses such as brokerage, wharfage, security, health, environment and safety expenses and management fees, among others.

ATI also reported that on August 9, 2010, it concluded the sale of its shares in the outstanding capital stock of Mariveles Grain Corporation (MGC) to Philippine Grain International Corporation at a price in excess of the company’s recorded book value for MGC shares.
