Double Dragon Properties now Double Dragon Corp.

Double Dragon Properties Corp., is now officially DoubleDragon Corp., paving the way for its transformation into to an investment holding company. 

Its founders Tony Tan Caktiong and Edgar Injap Sia II foresee it as a necessary preparation for the long term.

The company received yesterday November 19, the Certificate of Amended Articles of Incorporation issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that amended its corporate name and primary purpose into an investment holding company. 

Seven percent of DoubleDragon Corp is held equally with 35 percent each by Injap Investments Inc and Honeystar Holdings Corp of the Jollibee Group. 

“Barely just a few years ago, our family partnered with the Sia family as we saw exciting prospects in the Philippine real estate industry. Fast forward to today, DoubleDragon has grown from zero leasable space to 1.024 million square meters of completed GFA portfolio. In hindsight, that decision has proven right as DoubleDragon from a small startup company has transformed into a company with now over P129 billion in assets,” said Tan Caktiong. 

He said DoubleDragon is now in an excellent position where it can capitalize on its strong balance sheet to add worthwhile investments outside of the property sector that would have massive growth potential. 

“I am personally excited for what the future holds for the new DoubleDragon,” added Mr. Tan Caktiong. 

Sia said “now is the right time for DoubleDragon to prepare itself for extraordinary opportunities that will present itself along the way as we navigate out of this global pandemic towards the next economic boom cycle.

Total equity as of September 30 stood at P64.44 Billion as a result of the recent DDMP REIT listing and new equity infusion of the Jollibee Group into DoubleDragon’s industrial leasing subsidiary CentralHub.
