MANILA, Philippines — The battle for control of the country’s biggest bus company Vallacar Transit Inc. continues with both Yanson family factions holding on Saturday two separate annual shareholders’ meetings.

The two family factions are the so-called YansonTwo comprising of Leo Yanson and sister Ginnette Yanson-Dumancas, together with their mother, family matriarch Olivia Yanson on the one hand; and the other group comprising of the Yanson Four which includes the remaining four Yanson siblings, Ma. Lourdes Celina Yanson-Lopez, Roy Yanson, Ricardo Yanson Jr. and Emily Yanson.

The Yanson Two held their annual shareholders meeting on Saturday morning and elected their board of directors. This group re-appointed Leo Yanson as the president of the company.

The Yanson Four which claim to have the majority stake in the company, meanwhile, conducted another ASM on Saturday afternoon at the Seda Hotel in Bacolod City.

This was presided by Roy Yanson as chairman of the meeting. Representatives from the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Bacolod Extension Office were in attendance to witness the proceedings, the Roy Yanson-group said.

Under the company’s by-laws, the annual stockholders’ meeting of the company should be held every first Saturday of December.

On the other hand, the Yanson Four held their meeting in the afternoon.

Shareholders representing over 61 percent of the company’s shares were in attendance in that meeting and directors constituting the majority were elected, the group said.
