In a statement submitted on DoCoMo’s behalf by PLDT to the Philippine Stock Exchange, the cellco said: ’DoCoMo may increase its ownership of PLDT shares through open market purchases, negotiated purchases, or other transactions, up to the limitation of 21%, if DoCoMo deems market and other conditions as favourable.’
