See Note 20 – Interest- bearing Financial Liabilities – Long-term Debt . Long-term Currency Swaps PLDT has entered into long-term principal only-currency swap agreements with various foreign counterparties to hedge the currency risk on its fixed rate notes maturing in 2012 and 2017. Under the swaps, PLDT effectively exchanges the principal of its U.S. dollar-denominated fixed rate notes into Philippine peso-denominated loan exposures at agreed swap exchange rates. The agreed swap exchange rates are reset to the lowest U.S. dollar/Philippine peso spot exchange rate during the term of the swaps, subject to a minimum exchange rate. The outstanding swap contracts have an agreed average swap exchange rates of Php49.85 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013. The semi-annual fixed or floating swap cost payments that PLDT is required to make to its counterparties averaged about 3.42% per annum for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013. The long-term currency swaps that we entered to hedge the 2012 fixed rate notes with notional amount of US$100 million matured on May 15, 2012, with total cash settlement of Php941 million. On various dates from August to November 2012, the long-term principal only-currency swap agreements maturing in 2017 were partially terminated, with a total aggregate settlement of Php256 million. As a result of these unwinding transactions, the outstanding notional amount was reduced to US$202 million as at March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013. The mark-to-market losses of the 2017 swaps with a notional amount of US$202 million amounted to Php1,533 million and Php1,788 million as at March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.
