In these times, SHNG’s primary source of cash generation will be the office space rentals from the Enterprise Center, an office building located at Ayala Avenue corner Paseo De Roxas in Makati City operated by KSA Realty Corporation which it controls; car park rentals; hotel operations; and property management fees from its upscale condominium developments. SHNG also has built-up upscale property units available-for-sale. They can generate revenues from those units too.
