In 1954, a young engineer named David M. Consunji founded his namesake company to take advantage of the postwar construction boom in Manila. He believed in the value and nobility of principled contracting, and inspired a generation of engineers with his passion to build and commitment to serve.
D.M. Consunji, Inc. (DMCI) would go on to build landmarks and key infrastructure in the Philippines and other parts of the world, becoming one of the largest and most reputable construction companies in the country.
To unlock the value and growth potential of DMCI, he led the establishment and public listing of DMCI Holdings in 1995.
DMC is among the highest dividend paying stocks in the local market, with a dividend payout ratio of at least 25% of the preceding year’s consolidated core net income. The Company is also recognized for its commitment to good corporate governance and gender equality.
DMCI Holdings has consistently scored high in the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard (ACGS) initiative of the ASEAN Capital Markets Forum (ACMF) since 2015. The Company was recognized as one the Top ASEAN Asset Class Publicly Listed Companies at the 2019 ACGS Awards.
In 2021, DMC was also included in Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), a reference index that measures gender equality across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand.
