In addition, the company is raising its capital spending budget this year to over PHP 2 billion from an earlier planned amount of PHP 1.5 billion.

The increase in 2015 capex entails SSI an additional 5,000 sqm expansion from the former plan of 16,000 sqm.

Out of the planned 21,000 sqm of retail space planned for 2015, SSI already opened 23 new stores covering 4,106 sqm of additional selling space in the first quarter of the year.
