Chapter 1 Dona Teresita Part 3

Bumaba si terry sa office building....sa Paseo de Roxas...sumakay ng elevator at binati sya ng mga guards..

"Good morning po Dona Teresita"..

"Good morning" bati naman ni terry...

sumakay sya ng elevator...papa akyat sa board room....pag pasok nya..halos lahat eh andun na at naka upo...lahat sila director ng Mega Pacific at mga abugado ng ibang stockholders....

Good morning...good morning...puros bati..pag pasok ni terry...lahat gumagalang sa kanya...since isa sya sa may malaking hawak ng shares of stocks of Mega Pacific....

"dona teresita" tinawag ni Monica si terry..

"oy Monica..good morning"

"can I have a word with you mom"

"oh sure..what is it monica?"

"no mom..we have to talk outside"

"okay"

tumayo si terry...at sumama kay Monica...nag punta sila sa kabilang room na mas maliit kung san walang tao....

"Mom....just to let you know....they will be forcing you today to sell your shares...."

"What? why?"

"Right now...we have 23% controlling interest...Lilibeth still maintained her 10%...

30% is still publicly traded...mom meaning..the small investors or various stock brokers are the ones holding the shares....and 32% to the Umalis...the original owners of Mega Pacific...

Jake sold the 2% when he was still alive..for his pilot project in San Jose...kung san nga..alam na natin eh ikinamatay nya"

"I know...so what is the issue here Monica"

"Dont sell your shares..."

"Why will they tell me that?"

"there are orders from SEC and PSIX that Mega should release 5% of its shares to be release in the market for more liquidity in the market..."

"bakit daw?"

"Mom..kind of complicated....there are speculations...that charter change will be approve next year...and the number 1 target of that change is the foreign investors owning land will be approve..."

"and?

" and...for sure...fund managers will buy up property shares...it will jump off the roof....so the government is regulating it right now...I mean the property sector"

"okay.....alam mo monica..wala akong alam dito...kilala mo naman pinangalingan ko...simple housewife lang ako Monica....ewan ko ba kung anong sakit sa ulo ang iniwan ni rey sakin"

"mom...kaya nga andito ako..to help you out...buti nga nag iwan si rey ng Living Trust...at hindi sumakit ulo natin sa mga shares ni rey"

======================================== =

living trust refers to a trust that may be revocable by the trust creator or settlor (known by the IRS as the Grantor). Living trusts are often used because they may allow assets to be passed to heirs without going through the process of probate. Avoiding probate will normally save substantial costs (the probate courts, in some states, charge a fee based on a percentage net worth of the deceased), time, and maintain privacy (the probate records are available to the public, while distribution through a trust is private).

Living trusts also can be utilized to plan for unforeseen circumstances such as incapacity or disability.

Grantor/Settlor
The person who sets up the trust; also called the settlor, trustor, or trustmaker.
Trustee
This is the person who will manage the trust assets. This also may be the settlor in a Revocable Living Trust, since the settlor wants to manage his or her own property. Some revocable living trusts "self settled trusts" (that is, the grantor is also a beneficiary of the trust).
Successor Trustee
Where the Grantor is a Trustee, the Successor Trustee is the person who will manage the trust assets when the Grantor dies, or in the event the Grantor becomes incapacitated. Upon the Grantor’s death, the Successor Trustee will immediately have the same powers that the Grantor had as Trustee to buy, sell, borrow, or transfer the assets inside the trust. Also, the Successor Trustee has the right to distribute the trust’s assets according to the Grantor’s instructions in the trust instrument. The Successor Trustee does not have the legal right to change the trust. The trust becomes irrevocable upon the Grantor’s death. The Successor Trustee has the right to manage the assets in the estate, but must do so for the benefit of the remainder beneficiaries. At the Grantor’s death, the Successor Trustee automatically takes over without court order, pays any debts, expenses and taxes directed to be paid by the terms of the written trust document, and then distributes the property to the trust beneficiaries. Where the trust is scheduled to terminate on the Grantor’s death, and the trust is merely a means of avoiding probate, the death beneficiary should ordinarily be named Successor Trustee.
Beneficiaries
The people who will receive the benefit of the trust’s assets are called beneficiaries. Sometimes, the grantor is the original beneficiary. Those who take after the grantor's death are “remainder beneficiaries."

[edit] Establishing a living trust
To establish a living trust, an individual transfers title of his assets from himself as grantor, to a trustee of the trust (often the trustee and grantor are the same person), to administer for the benefit of himself and at least one other person. The trust may also name the remainder beneficiaries who will take after the grantor dies. The beneficiaries get nothing until that person dies.

Depending on the size of the trust, it may be advisable to use a corporate trustee such as a bank. A substantial advantage of this approach is that a corporate trustee can act in perpetuity, whereas an individual cannot. Corporate trustees must provide accurate and detailed records of all transactions that take place in the trust, for however long the trust exists. Those records become what is known as an "accounting" of the trust, which may be required to be provided to a court or remainder beneficiaries. Corporate trustees also are required to manage the investments held in the trust. Laws have been updated in most states to allow a corporate trustee to act in a "directed capacity," meaning that the trustee is required to have oversight of the trust investments, but not the day-to-day management of them.

Chapter 1 Dona Teresita Part 4

Nag umpisa ang meeting....and as expected..nag announce sila na some shareholders has to let go of their shares....at ng ini ipit na si Dona Teresita eh nag salita na si Monica..

" Wait a minute here....the Umalis have 32%...and we only have what...23%....then why will you pressure us to give in another 2%? that is not fair...if ever there will be a donor...I think it is the Umali's that should do that..not us"

Nag talo talo sa boardroom....hanggang napa agree ni Monica na to release 1% from their share of 23%.....

"Mom..don't worry..we can buy it back..this is just a formality..we will do what Don Jaime did..set up foundations or ananymous corporation to buy back our shares...." pabulong ni Monica...

Since mabebenta nila ang 1% eh.. magkakaron ng malaking cash si Terry....ang bentahan ng Mega Pacific sa stock market eh nag close ng P 1.48...so that is a whooping 1.48 billion pesos...

Maraming buyers na nakapila sa stock market para sa MP (Mega Pacific)...pero walang sellers..dahil nga sa speculation na papayagan na ang mga foreigners na maka bili ng lupa sa Pinas...

After ng meeting..nag usap si Monica at Terry sa executive room ni Terry....

"mom..we have to relocate you...since we will be having a good sum of cash...we can allocate a tiny portion of it to buy you a house and lot in Makati...perhaps malapit lang dito sa office....either Urdaneta o Bel-air?

"siguro dyan nalang sa bel-air...yung pag pasok sa gate nila dyan...."

"ahh...Paseo Bel-air"

"Paseo pa ba yun ?"

"yes mom...."

"good...para kahit lakarin pwede na....saka malapit lang..ma avoid ko ang traffic diba monica"

"perfect mom....sige...kahit walang sellers dyan...bibili tayo..we will give them an offer they cannot refuse..."

"how much ba mga bahay dyan monica?"

"hmm...from 30-50 million....pero walang sellers dyan...so probably we can offer them like 70 Million?"

"dyos ko....ang mahal naman pala....dun nalang ako sa bahay ko sa Novaliches na maliit"

"Mom....you are now Dona Teresita...you have a new profile...and besides mom...you need security...and I heard..the bel-air guards are the best....very strict dyan"

"Okay....sige..bahala ka na Monica"

ng biglang napansin ni Monica ang mga luha ni Dona teresita na tumutulo....

"mom...bakit?..naalala nyo nanaman ba si rey"

"yes iha....at ayokong iwan yung lumang bahay...."

"okay mom...we will not sell it..we will keep it...including everything...we will buy you a new home, furnitures, clothes..para mom you can start a new life"

umiyak pa din si Dona Teresita

"bakit ako iniwan ni rey....iniwan nya ako nuon...ng matagal Monica...alam mo ba yun? pitong taon...Monica nawala yang bata na yan...."

"opo na kwento sakin yun ni rey"

"alam mo Monica...nung dumungaw ako sa bintana Monica....para syang isang anghel....yun na ata ang pinaka masayang araw ko Monica....ng makita ko uli ang aking anak....mahal na mahal ko sya Monica...mahal na mahal"

habang umi iyak si dona teresita....ramdam na ramdam nya pa din ang hapdi ....ang pagkawala sa isang anak...

"bakit sya kinuha Monica...bakit....sana ako nalang Monica....bakit ang iho ko pa...napaka bata nya pa para kunin ng dyos...sana ako nalang Monica....bakit/"

Niyakap ni Monica si Dona Teresita.....

"Mom....lilipas din yan..tangapin natin ....yan poh ang kagustuhan ng dyos...."

"Wala pa bang balita Monica?"

"San po?"

"ang mga bangkay....ang bangkay ng anak ko at ng kapatid ko?...isang taon na Monica.....baka buhay pa si rey Monica....baka buhay pa sya.....nararamdaman ko sya Monica...gabi gabi...napapanaginipan ko sya Monica...tinatawag nya ako........"

humagulgol na si dona teresita kay Monica....at sa mga oras na yun...umi iyak na din si Monica...

"mom..may awa ang dyos..makaka raos din tayo....miss ko din po si rey"

nag iyakan silang 2 sa loob ng kwarto ni Dona Teresita..habang naka tingin sila sa bintana kung san mo ang Manila bay....ang sinag ng araw....na parang isang konection....

Tumigil si Dona Teresita sa kaka iyak..pinunasan nya ang kanyang sarile...at tumingin sa malayo..sa bintana...sa dagat....sa sinag ng araw.....

"buhay ang anak ko!......buhay sya....nararamdaman ko Monica....sa akin sya nangaling....buhay si rey"
