Biz Buzz: SCTEx rebidding looms
By: the staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
3:09 am | Monday, August 27th, 2012

The group of Manuel V. Pangilinan may have consented to another revision in the contract for the operation and management of the country’s longest expressway, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx), but this can be all for naught as the Department of Finance is keen on recommending a rebidding of the contract.

Government sources said the DoF would like to rebid the contract with the Metro Pacific group—which originally won the auction shortly before the P-Noy administration took over—to unlock more revenue for the government. The contract was renegotiated in 2011 to improve the government’s share when P-Noy took over but apparently, at terms still unacceptable to the Office of the President, which has not given its imprimatur on the concession.

Not all quarters within the government, however, agreed with the DoF’s leaning toward a rebidding. Our sources said a template was being drawn up to improve the government’s share and the proponents believed this could also optimize state interest in SCTEx. However, it’s now up to the Office of the President on whether to simply overhaul the contract for the second time around or call for a rebidding. MVP’s group also has the option of going to court but it was not likely to risk getting its relationship with the government soured.

If the government takes the latter route, it opens up the opportunity for the frenemy—the San Miguel group of Ramon S. Ang—to take a second crack at SCTEx. To recall, MVP’s group via Manila North Tollroads Corp. was considered the sole eligible bidder for SCTEx in 2010 after rival Northlink Tollway Management (a joint venture between San Miguel Corp. and Star Tollways Corp.) was declared short of the technical requirements.

But while a rebidding of SCTEx may be good for San Miguel, the P-Noy regime’s scrutiny of many infrastructure-building contracts prior to its term may also affect SMC. For instance, the DoF has also sent SMC’s Metro Railway Transit-7 project (from Edsa Quezon Ave. to Bulacan) back to the drawing boards.—Doris C. Dumlao

Metro Pacific sweetens offer for SCTEx contract
BCDA to submit proposal to President for approval
By: Doris C. Dumlao
Philippine Daily Inquirer

The Metro Pacific group has submitted an improved offer for the operation and management of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx), based on terms recently renegotiated with the state-controlled Bases Conversion and Development Authority.

The improvement was meant to address concerns raised by the Department of Finance (DoF) on revenue-sharing and potentially avert proposals to subject the SCTEx contract to a new round of bidding. This was the second time under the Aquino administration, however, that the BCDA and Metro Pacific renegotiated the SCTEx framework.

“My understanding is that BCDA is recommending it to the Office of the President,” Metro Pacific Investments Corp. president Jose Ma. Lim told reporters on the sidelines of the meeting of the Shareholders Association of the Philippines (SharePHIL), a new group created to protect and promote shareholder rights, duties and responsibilities.

“I think it’s very, very significant compared to where we started,” Lim said.

'pag inabutan pa ng pagbubukas ng TPLEX, baka sa SMC consortium pa mapunta ang SCTEX concession na 'yan..

BCDA endorses new SCTEx deal for Palace approval
By: Darwin G. Amojelar, InterAksyon.com

Quote:
MANILA - State-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) has endorsed to Malacanang an "improved" deal for the concession to operate the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx).

"The actual status of SCTEx concession is that we have already signed a new agreement with BCDA. This said agreement has been endorsed to the President for approval," Ramon Fernandez, president of Metro Pacific Tollways Corp (MPTC) told participants of the EJAP Economic Forum 2012.

MPTC is the parent firm of Manila North Tollways Corp (MNTC), which operates SCTEx and the North Luzon Expressway.

Fernandez said the new agreement raised BCDA's revenue share in SCTEx to P90 billion from the original proposal of P64 billion.

He said the new agreement also provides a longer period - from the earlier end-point of 2016 to the new schedule of 2019 - within which MNTC would subsidize payment of BCDA's existing P31 billion debt to the Japan International Cooperation Agency that was used to construct the SCTEx. The loan will mature in 2041.

"We have also added P800 million [in] fixed fees from 2020 to 2023," Fernandez said, adding that this was on top of the 30 percent revenue share.

MNTC also increased the advance facility - from P1 billion earlier to P2 billion - with an option to provide more if there will be shortfalls because of lower-than-projected traffic at SCTEx.

Under the terms of the contract, BCDA shall assign to MNTC the management, operations and maintenance of SCTEx as well as the government agency's rights in the Toll Operations Agreement, including the right to collect toll revenues for 25 years, renewable for another eight years.

I thought Bonifacio was assassinated somewhere in the mountains of Cavite - Marigondon? Need enlightenment here.
