Third quarter 2021 update In 3Q21, construction activity remained stable, despite a reversion to stricter lockdown measures, due to the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant. Start of the monsoon season in the third quarter negatively affected sequential performance. Successfully executed major kiln maintenance works in APO Cement Plant, more than two years since our last major shutdown in APO. We brought in additional clinker to support our production requirements during our APO shutdown. Increased use of secondary fuels. However, for the fourth quarter, our upcoming shipments of coal will reflect higher rates. Pursuing operations and supply chain efficiency initiatives to mitigate cost increases.

Sustainability and Climate Action Launched our “Vertua” and “Type 1P High Strength” cement products, giving our customers eco-friendly alternatives Our kilns continue co-processing, saving inorganic waste from landfills and bodies of water Solid Cement Plant recognized by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources for “Small Scale – Waste to Energy for Co-processing of Residual Wastes” Expecting start-up of 4.5-megawatt waste-heat recovery facility in APO Cement Plant by first quarter 2022, similar to the 6-megawatt waste-heat recovery facility in our Solid Cement Plant


Slide 11

Rest of the year outlook National weather bureau announced the onset of the La Niña phenomenon, which may persist until the first quarter of 2022 We continue to face inflationary pressures driven by global energy price increases and supply chain disruptions Execution of public infrastructure projects remains a driver of economic recovery


Slide 12

Domestic cement volumes increased by 1% year-over-year during the third quarter, as construction activity remained stable despite a return to stricter lockdown measures due to the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant Sequentially, our domestic cement volumes decreased by 4%, as the rainy season affected our industry On a year-to-date basis, our domestic cement volumes increased by 11% year-over-year Our domestic cement prices increased by 1% sequentially, due to price adjustments implemented in 3Q21 Year-over-year, change in our domestic cement prices mainly driven by higher proportion of pick-up sales Net of freight charges, our domestic cement prices decreased by 1% year-over-year during 3Q21 and 9M21, mainly due to competitive market dynamics and the impact of COVID-19 on business activity Domestic Cement Volumes and Prices

Slide 14

Private Sector Construction sector employment remained above the 4 million threshold in August despite strict lockdown measures, as essential projects in the construction industry were allowed to operate at full capacity. Activity in the residential sector improved compared to last year as seen in the positive trend of residential building permits, and horizontal residential real estate prices. Overall spending and investment for this sector may be challenged by elevated inflation rates. In addition, despite resilient remittance inflows, OFW households could apportion more remittance proceeds for basic and health necessities. Non-residential sector activity declined year-on-year as mobility restrictions continue to hamper the sector’s performance as seen in non-residential building permits, non-residential capital formation, and postponed project launches. The general decline in this sector is softened by growing demand for logistics and warehousing. For the rest of the year, above-normal rainfall conditions forecasted by the national weather bureau may affect general construction activity.

Public Sector Infrastructure disbursements for the first two months of 3Q2021 reached PHP 144 billion, a 49% increase compared to the same period in 2020 and higher than the PHP 135 billion recorded during the same period in 2019.

The government is expected to fast track infrastructure projects for the rest of the year to catch up, and in anticipation of the construction ban next year due to elections. While the risk of COVID-19 remains, infrastructure activities are considered essential and a driver of the country’s economic recovery.
