SEC approves name change to Lopez Holdings Corporation 

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on June 23, 2010 approved the change in corporate name of Benpres Holdings Corporation to Lopez Holdings Corporation.

In line with this, the Philippine Stock Exchange in a circular (No. 4426-2010) dated June 25, 2010 announced that “the change in corporate name and stock trading symbol of Benpres Holdings Corporation (BPC) to Lopez Holdings Corporation (LPZ) will be reflected on the Exchange’s trading system effective on July 5, 2010.”

The name Lopez Holdings identifies the company more clearly as part of the Lopez Group, known for generations in Philippine business for the practice of enduring values – pioneering entrepreneurial spirit, business excellence, unity, nationalism, social justice, integrity, and concern for employee welfare and wellness.

At the organizational meeting of the board of directors of Lopez Holdings on June 10, Manuel M. Lopez took over as chairman and chief executive officer of the Philippine conglomerate that has investments in publicly listed ABS-CBN Corporation and First Philippine Holdings Corporation. Oscar M. Lopez was conferred the title of chairman emeritus. Eugenio Lopez III was appointed as vice chairman, Salvador G. Tirona as president and chief operating officer, and Federico R. Lopez as treasurer.
