Emperador’s global presence continues to expand across North America, Europe and China

October 28, 2020

MANILA, Philippines - Emperador Inc. – the world’s largest brandy company owning the iconic Emperador Brandy and Fundador Spanish Brandy de Jerez – continues its aggressive growth across North America and Europe during the first nine months of the year even as the global pandemic adversely hit most countries in these continents.       Fundador, Tres Cepas, and Emperador brands have been growing consistently, particularly in the United States, Canada, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Greater China. In Spain, brands owned and produced under Grupo Emperador España S.A. continue to dominate the brandy market with 40% market share.      Fundador has been particularly showing spectacular performance even in North America. In the United States alone, Fundador achieved 23% growth during the first nine months of the year. In Canada, sales have also tripled during the first nine months as Fundador Light has been made available in Alberta, Canada as a new expression this year. The new Fundador Double Light was also rolled out across the US.       Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom, Fundador grew 185% during the first nine months, while in Italy, it recorded 15% growth during the same period. Emperador’s brandy performance, on the other hand, achieved 8% growth in Mexico during this period.      “We are glad that the company was able to deliver solid performance in the first nine months of 2020 on the strength of its international business that we have developed in the past five years.  The highest international growth comes from China, which is expected to more than double from last year, which will be driven by the premium single malt brands and brandy.  We are confident that this will pave the way for further growth in the future for Emperador,” says Glenn Manlapaz, chief executive officer, Emperador International.      As international sales of its brandy and whisky products in various markets around the world, Emperador recorded 11% growth in its net income to P5.9-billion during the first nine months of the year while third quarter earnings achieved 26% record growth to P2.5-billion as overseas demand for its products surged amid the global pandemic.       “The success of our international expansion boosted company earnings, bringing stability and growth at a time when the Philippines wrestles with the impact of the coronavirus.  Emperador’s global business saw double-digit growth as it adapted well to new consumption trends,” says Winston Co, president, Emperador Inc.      Emperador Inc., which owns Emperador Distillers, Inc., Scotch whisky maker Whyte and Mackay Group, and Bodegas Fundador in Spain, has brandy and whisky brands that are available in more than 100 countries around the world.

DECODE 2020 to gather IT professionals, tech experts in three-day virtual conference

October 28, 2020

Professionals from the Information Technology (IT) industry in the country and international tech experts will gather on November 10 to 12 for the premier cybersecurity conference in the Philippines. Dubbed DECODE, the annual conference is organized by Trend Micro Inc, a global leader in cybersecurity. The three-day conference, which will feature various industry experts from different parts of the globe to speak about the latest developments in the cyber world, presents an immense opportunity to IT professionals in the country to network, learn and share knowledge among their peers. DECODE will have more than 40 virtual breakout sessions during the event’s three-day run and a panel discussion of threat experts, where participants learn about various latest global trends on Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Protection and Privacy, Cybercrime and Incident Response, among others. The conference, which will be conducted virtually this year due to the COVID-19 crisis, aims to share to local technology professionals up-to-date information about the threat landscape, industry trends, and new technologies in order to empower them to secure the digital infrastructures of their organizations, as well as to inspire them to embark on a continuous learning journey. This year’s theme, “ELEVATE! Transform Rapidly, Seamlessly, Securely,” calls for transformation in the cyber industry with the rise of new threats concerning organizations. IT professionals must always be equipped not only with the right tools, but with the right skills and knowledge. In the fight to keep the connected world safe and secure, these cyber defenders must elevate beyond the ordinary and transform rapidly, seamlessly, securely. Six international speakers will deliver keynote addresses during this year’s DECODE confab. Martin Rösler, Senior Director of the Trend Micro Forward-Looking Threat Research (FTR) team, will give a talk on “The Game Changer – How the Pandemic is Changing Your World”. In this session, Rösler will look at some of the new cyber risks, threats, and challenges the world is facing today. A presentation on “Innovation or Disruption” will also be delivered by Myla Pilao who leads the security research communications at Trend Micro. Pilao will examine how countries and organizations are being disrupted by a myriad of digital threats and risks, and why it’s crucial that they reexamine their existing security architecture to make it robust against present cyber threats. Robert McArdle, the Director for Cybercrime Research of the FTR team, will discuss “Cybercrime in 2020 and Beyond: Not Everything Changes in a Pandemic”. McArdle will delve into how cybercrime, as an industry, has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Melissa Hathaway, president of Hathaway Global LLC and a leading expert in cyberspace policy and cybersecurity who served in two U.S. presidential administrations, will present a discussion dubbed as “Exposed: Attack Surfaces Widen as the World Increasingly Relies on Digital Infrastructures”. In this session, she will share about the increased reliance on digital tools and broader exposure to cyber risks to ramp scam individuals, ransom businesses, disrupt critical infrastructures, and attack governments at all levels. Philip Casanova, a Partner at SyCip Gorres Velayo & Co.’s Technology Consulting, will share timeless principles that he learned in his over two-decade journey as a cybersecurity professional in his talk dubbed as “Principles to Live by for Cybersecurity Leaders”. His presentation aims to strengthen the mindset, persona, and posture of current and aspiring cybersecurity leaders in this evolving cyber threat landscape. Craig Jones, Director of Cybercrime INTERPOL, will talk about INTERPOL’s Global Cybercrime Programme which aims to reduce the global impact of cybercrime and protect communities for a safer world. In the “Cybercrime Through the Lens of Law Enforcement and Private Partners” session, Jones will discuss why it is crucial that law enforcement agencies and private partners collaborate in investigations to thwart cybercriminal operations and reduce the risks it could pose to ordinary users and enterprises. The virtual conference is open to IT professionals from different industries for free. Aside from its regular sessions, participants will have the chance to interact with the speakers at the networking lounge during breaks. Trend Micro started this annual cybersecurity conference in 2017 — previously held in Manila — with one common goal which is to spread awareness about the trends in the cyber world. The company has been organizing the conference to augment the cybersecurity skills gap in the Philippines and maintain its expertise in the industry.
