Haus Talk has tapped Investment & Capital Corporation of the Philippines to be the underwriter and issue manager.

Net proceeds from the offering amounting to P717.31 million will be used mainly for land acquisition (P462.01 million), project development (P216.58 million), and for general working capital (P38.71 million).

It plans to acquire land in Bacoor, Cavite (3 hectares for P240 million); Dagupan (5 hectares for P100 million); Sta. Cruz, Laguna (2 hectares for P40 million), and in Antipolo (6 hectares for P260 million).

The Bacoor property will be developed into a 278-unit horizontal residential project while the Dagupan property will be developed into a 460-unit horizontal residential project.

Haus Talk plans to develop the Sta. Cruz property into a 230-unit horizontal residential while the Sumulong property in Antipolo will be developed in two phases, with each project phase having 278-unit horizontal residential projects.

The project will be developed in three phases with each phase commencing within the first three years of disbursement. The P216.58 million will be split among the land development, construction, and administration expenses of the project.

Haus Talk’s projects are currently based in Antipolo City and the Laguna region. The Company was organized in 2004 and is run by the Madlambayan family.
