July 11, 2020 AT 04:14 PM

Today is a sad day for the entire ABS-CBN family and for the millions of Filipinos who are hoping for our return on-air.
This is not the outcome we have hoped for, but we remain grateful that we were able to participate in the process and clear the issues raised against ABS-CBN.
We are very grateful for the unwavering support of all the sponsors who authored our bills and to all the lawmakers who believed we deserve a franchise.
It was not an easy task, but we drew strength from God and our people, and we remain inspired by them to continue our mission to be in the service of the Filipino.
Now, more than ever, we feel proud of our company. We are proud of everyone who have helped us serve the Filipinos through the years.
And we are proud of the genuine love and support we continue to receive from our kababayans all over the world.
We remain hopeful that better days are ahead for the network.   This painful development will only make us stronger and better.
We will never give up on our mission. We will never give up on our nation. 
Mahal na mahal namin ang Pilipino. Mahal na mahal namin ang Kapamilya.
