HISTORY

In 1928, Congress passed Act No. 3495 granting the Robert Dollar Company, a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of California, a franchise to operate wireless long distance message services in the Philippines. The Robert Dollar Company subsequently incorporated in the Philippines as Globe Wireless Limited and in 1934, Congress passed Act No. 4150 transferring the franchise and privileges of the Robert Dollar Company to Globe Wireless Limited.

Globe Wireless Limited was subsequently renamed Globe Mackay Cable and Radio Corporation. Congress, through Republic Act 4630 enacted in 1965, further expanded its franchise to allow it to operate international communications systems. Globe Mackay Cable and Radio Corporation was closed in the Philippines by Martial law. Shortly before the expiration of its franchise, the Batasan Pambansa in 1980 enacted Batas Pambansa 95 granting Globe Mackay Cable and Radio Corporation a new franchise.

On June 15, 1990, Isla Communications Co., Inc. (Islacom) was incorporated. Through Republic Act 7372, Islacom was authorized to develop full-service telecommunications network in the country.

In 1991, Globe Mackay was subsequently merged with the Clavecilla Radio Corporation. Globe Mackay as the surviving company was renamed GMCR, Inc. and on March 19, 1992, the Philippine Congress passed Republic Act 7229 approving the merger and the transfer of the franchise of Clavecilla Radio Corporation to the surviving company to be renamed GMCR, Inc.

In 1994, Islacom launched the country's first digital mobile communication services using GSM world standard digital technology.

On August 20, 1998, the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the change of name of GMCR, Inc. to Globe Telecom, Inc. (Globe).

On February 22, 2000, Globe and its principal shareholders Ayala Corporation (AC) and Singapore Telecom International Pte. Ltd. (STI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore Telecom (ST), and Islacom and its principal shareholders Asiacom Philippines, Inc.(Asiacom) and DeTeAsia Holding GmbH (DeTeAsia), a wholly owned subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG (DT), entered into a general agreement for a combination of the business and operations of Globe and Islacom.

On June 27, 2001, Globe completed the share swap transaction with Islacom, which effectively made Islacom a 100%-owned subsidiary of Globe.

In September 2002, Globe announced the operational integration of Globe and Islacom's wireless networks. A key element of the integration involves the migration of existing wireless subscribers of Islacom to the improved Touch Mobile (TM) service.

On August 7, 2003, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) approved the legal transfer of Globe's wireline business, authorizations, properties, assets and obligations to Islacom.

On

August

25,

2003,

the

SEC

approved the change in name of Islacom to Innove

Communications, Inc. (Innove).

On March 30, 2007, Globe Telecom, through its president and chief executive Gerardo Ablaza Jr. said it is diversifying from its core business to take advantage of the booming broadband business. Ablaza said the company would increase its investments in cable systems and wire lines to build its broadband Internet infrastructure. Industry analysts have viewed Globe's plan to invest in cable systems as a strategy to compete more aggressively with Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), which took advantage of its wire line infrastructure to diversify into broadband business.

Globe's network is considered the first and biggest 2.5Ghz WiMAX (802.16e) broadband network in South East Asia. It is first in the Philippines to commercially launch a consumer WiMAX offering. Currently, Globe has around four thousand subscribers on its WiMAX network, after only a few weeks. The service is initially available in selected areas in South Luzon, Metro Manila, Visayas and Mindanao. Globe continues to roll-out WiMAX sites, as a complement to its existing DSL and 3G Internet facilities, to ensure the internet gets to every Filipino who needs it. Globe is providing WiMAX to selected local community government offices in Cavite, Batangas and Cagayan de Oro City. Globe is also providing Internet access via WiMAX to selected schools and city hospitals in Mindanao as part of its thrust of community service to the marginalized areas.

Globe has been expanding its wireless broadband network to accommodate the increasing demand for the Internet.

Every year, the Company reviews and formulates its strategic priorities which then guide the formulation of the key business strategies and goals for the year.

This is captured in what is called the groups’ Terms of Reference (TOR). To ensure line of sight, the group TORs are cascaded to all employees, making sure that everyone understands and appreciates their contribution to the group goals. This helps in developing individual performance plans that are aligned with the key strategies. Rewards and incentives are given based on the achievement of the committed group and individual targets.

Key programs, projects, and major organizational initiatives are taken up at the SEG, composed of the President & CEO, the Deputy CEO, as well as the heads of each of the major business units and support groups. All budgets and major capital expenditures must be approved by the SEG prior to endorsement to the Board for approval. The Chief Operating Adviser and Chief Technical Adviser also provide inputs to the SEG as required. The SEG meets at least twice a month.

Management is mandated to provide complete and accurate information on the operations and

affairs of the Company in a timely manner. Management is also required to prepare financial statements for each preceding financial year in accordance with Philippine Financial Reporting Standards (PFRS). Management’s statement of responsibility with regards to the Company’s
