Marcos “prospered tremendously,” as a result of various acquisitions and expansions of his business empire.

The companies involved in the case are Fortune Tobacco Corp. (FTC), Asia Brewery, Allied Banking Corp., Foremost Farms, Himmel Industries, Grandspan Development Corp., Silangan Holdings, Dominium Realty and Construction Corp., and Shareholdings, Inc.
