“The first transaction did not push through but his interest remained.
“But the company remains very attractive and desirable not only to MVP.
“There were others that expressed interest.”
INCREASING OUR REACH. Samantala, habang wala pang nagaganap na negosasyon, patuloy naman ang pagpaplano ni Atty. Gozon, kasama sina GMA Network President Gilberto Duavit Jr., at GMA Network EVP and Chief Financial Officer Felipe S. Yalong, kung paano pa palalakihin ang sakop ng Kapuso network.
Binabalak daw nilang palawakin pa ang naaabot ng kanilang network sa mga probinsiya.
Ani Mr. Duavit, “We are moving towards the rural areas and increasing our reach in Northern Mindanao and portions of the Visayas.
“We acknowledge that ABS-CBN is ahead in terms of the rural areas but they were 10 years ahead.
“If you look at the Philtam [total nationwide], the difference is a lot more encouraging than we expected.
“It is not an insurmountable difference. We are looking at winning even in rural areas this year.”
