Bond Issuance May Reach IDR29 Trillion
Increase in Indonesia's CDS Predicted to only be Temporary

JAKARTA: Corporate bond issuance next year is projected at IDR27 trillion-IDR29 trillion, rising 5%-10% from IDR26.5 trillion this year.

Data by Bisnis show the total amount of corporate bonds maturing next year will reach IDR10.94 trillion, while the amount of T-bonds maturing next year will hit IDR70.47 trillion.

Data by Indonesia Stock Exchange (BEI) expose the volume of rupiah-denominated bond and Islamic bond so far this year has reached IDR19.33 trillion. Approaching the yearend, there will be additional IDR7.13 trillion in bond, leading to a total issuance of IDR26.46 trillion this year.

"Bond and Islamic bond issuances next year will grow 5%-10% from this year as several companies will be interested in entering the bond market in line with economic growth," observed a corporate bond analyst at publicly listed PT Trimegah Securities Octavianus Bramantya last weekend.

President Director of PT Pemeringkat Efek Indonesia (Pefindo) Kahlil Rowter viewed the Dubai World debt crisis would not hugely impact the T-bond and corporate bond market in the country. However, he admitted the debt crisis would impact the global bond market for a certain period of time.

"The debt crisis will not affect Indonesia much nor bond issuance target next year, which is projected at IDR25 trillion - IDR30 trillion," he said.

Kahlil took example that in the first quarter of 2009, the global market condition, reflected from Indonesia's high credit default swap (CDS), didn't discourage issuers to issue bond nor dispirited investors.

He explained the increase in Indonesia's CDS in the past two days would not last long, despite his belief that there would be fund withdrawal from the emerging bond markets for a certain time.

The CDS of five-year rupiah-denominated Indonesian T-bonds surged from 202.21 on November 25 to 238.64 on November 27.

Head of Pricing at Pefindo Ronny Wicaksono predicted bond issuance would be flourishing in the first semester of 2010 since the benchmark interest rate was still above the level desired by investors.

Several issuers whose bonds will mature next year are Astra Sedaya Finance (IDR1.15 trillion), Federal International Finance (IDR855 billion), Apexindo Pratama Duta (IDR750 billion), BTN (IDR750 billion), Indosat (IDR640 billion), and Jasa Marga (IDR650 billion).

State Budget Financing
Director General of Debt Management at the Department of Finance Rahmat Waluyanto disclosed the government had prepared funds to service T-bonds that would mature next year. "We have allocated funds for T-bonds through the State Budget."

Rahmat added the Department of Finance was optimistic domestic and global T-bond issuances would attract investors, thanks to better rating outlooks as released by Moody's and S&P.

He continued several analysts viewed the Dubai bond crisis would shrink investment flow into emerging countries, which would be potential to affect Indonesia's T-bond prices.

Foreign investor ownership of T-bonds also surged to IDR104.88 trillion as of November 20 from IDR103.3 trillion as of November 13.

However, Fauzi Ichsan, an economist at Standard Chartered Bank, cited economic players started worrying about the follow-up impacts of the Dubai World debt crisis, leading to negative sentiments in the domestic market for a short term.

In the short-term, Indonesian market players would take a defensive position on worries the phenomenon was only the beginning of the worse debt crisis to come in many countries. (Bisnis/21/agi)

Bond coupon of Sarana Multigriya at 8.5%-10.79%

JAKARTA: PT Sarana Multigriya Finansial (SMF) offered II/2009 bond coupon worth totally IDR350 billion with 1 and 3 years tenure at the level of 8.5-9 percent and 9.79-10.79 percent. The issuance is potentially to grow up.

Director of PT Bahana Securities Andi Sidharta said the reference used for the one year tenure bonds used SPN and the three year tenure will use FR008 as the reference. Premium offered ranges at 150-250 bps above the reference yield.

He said the offered coupon shows the company remains optimistic the high customers demand as it targets investors with short term horizon.

Andi opens chance to the additional issuance, would the demand and coupon required by the investors be considered lucrative.

"It is unlike other bonds with longer term many issued by end of the year," he briefed the press yesterday. Bahana Securities acts as single underwriter here.

SMF targets bank customers and investment managers which prefer short term tenure investment instrument.

He said there are three major factors leading to the company and emitter optimism with the bond issuance gains. First, the bond rating is at AA level by PT Fitch Ratings Indonesia. As to him, it is rare now for corporate to get that high rating.

Second, the emitter is state owned enterprises fully guaranteed by the government. He cited example when every IPO of bonds or stocks, investors are always interested in the issued investment instrument.

Third, the offered bond coupon is higher than bank and deposit rate commonly at 8 percent with relatively the same tenure.

President Director of SMF Erica Soeroto said the company plans to disburse IDR450 billion financing next year. "But , it still waits for shareholders approval."

Director of SMF Sutomo said the company has sought some investment managers to market mutual funds using assets-backed securities instrument (EBA) issued twice by the company this year.

The derivative securities issuance here stands at IDR502 billion but mostly absorbed by SMF as the standby buyer.

He said retail investor later could enjoy protected mutual fund with EBA basis equity particularly EBA DSMF-BTN 02/2009 the company just issued.

"The coupon is still attractive and it'd better for mutual fund investor."

Up to yearend, the company will have a total assets worth IDR1.95 trillion coming from equity and EBA 01 and 02 worth totally IDR1.3 trillion, I/2009 bond worth IDR300 billion, and II/2009 bond scheme worth IDR350 billion. (Bisnis/21)

T-bond Issuance to be Suspended

T-bond Issuance to be Suspended

JAKARTA: The government is going to suspend T-bond issuance this year as it has already met the target to raise IDR144.54 trillion in gross financing through the auction of three T-bond series worth IDR2.16 trillion.

Rahmat Waluyanto, Director General of Debt Management at the Department of Finance, revealed the government had been able to raise IDR2.16 trillion from the market through the issuance of T-bond series FR0031, FR0040, and FR0052 yesterday.

Although there was still 1.5 months left this year, there would be no more T-bond issued as the three series had been able to complete the fulfillment of the gross financing target of IDR144.54 trillion. "This is the last time since 100% of the target has been completed," he said yesterday.

At the T-bond issuance yesterday, the total bid received was IDR2.73 trillion. However, only IDR1.4 trillion was favored for the 11-year FR0031 series, IDR660 for the 16-year FR0040 series, and IDR104 billion for the 11-year FR0052 series.

In addition to rupiah-denominated bonds, the government has also issued three foreign-denominated bonds to patch up this year's deficit of IDR128.6 trillion or 2.4% of GDP. The three foreign-denominated bonds are global MTN (medium term notes) worth US$3 billion issued in February, global Islamic bond worth US$650 million issued in April, and Samurai Bond worth 35 billion yens issued in August.

Rahmat said the government was quite successful in its strategy of lowering yield by bolstering bond issuance earlier this year. "Such a measure enables us to control yield and prevent us from being controlled by the market."

Pursue target

An economist at the Institute for Development of Economic and Finance Aviliani viewed there had been an impression that the government only wanted to pursue financing target by bolstering bond issuances.

As a result, at the moment there had been competition for funds between the banking industry, which is facing liquidity problems, and the government, which offers huge yields.

An economist at Sustainable Development Indonesia Dradjad Hari Wibowo agreed, saying the maximum bond issuance was not matched by the parallel budgetary realization. As a result, there had always been budget left unabsorbed every year.

"The government's budgetary management is poor as the financing wheel doesn't match the wheels of spending and state revenues." (Bisnis/agi/21)

Salim Ivomas bond issuance below target: Jamsostek calls for 12-13% coupons

Salim Ivomas bond issuance below target
Jamsostek calls for 12-13% coupons

JAKARTA: The amount of I/2009 bond issuance and I/2009 sharia bonds of Salim Ivomas Pratama was IDR780 billion or less than the former scheme worth IDr1.25 trillion.

This is due to the resignation of PT Jamsostek and some investors noting that the offered coupon is 11.65 percent or lower than the demand.

"One of factors causing some investors walked out is that emitter set was too under standard than the investors expectation regarding the noted reputation of Salim Group and Indofood as the holding company," he said to Bisnis.

Other resources said the Jamsostek coupon demand is too high or 12-13 percent and that if emitter set the bond and sharia bond coupon 12 percent, the bond request would have been oversubscribed or could even raised into IDR1.5 trillion.

Investment Director of Jamsostek Elvyn Gani Masasya conceded the coupon set at the level of 11.65 percent will not be included in the investment criteria. But she did not provide detail explanation on the coupon asked by the company to Salim Ivomas as the underwriter.

The company formerly has set higher coupon offer than the earlier offering of 11.1-11.6 percent or 175-225 bps refering to the yield of the government bond of FR0026 series. Initially the maximum yield was at the level of 9.35 percent.

But, SUN yield of the series here was raised early this month up to 9.44 percent and the bond coupon indication increased up to 11.6 percent at maximum. Some market players suspected there was cornering action of SUN price to form new pricing at bond secondary market.

The company reason to refer to the coupon asked by the investors is that Salim Ivomas adjust it to the corporate short and long term lending rate.

In the issuance, emitter was assisted by five securities companies as the underwriters whose range is based on the bond and sharia bond sales result, namely PT OSK Nusadana Securities Indonesia, PT Mandiri Sekuritas, PT Kim Eng Securities, PT CIMB Securities Indonesia, and PT Danareksa Sekuritas.

Salim Ivomas also appointed PT Bank Mega Tbk as the trustee boards of the issuance of both notes.

Bond offering is scheduled from October 28 to November 11, 2009. Bapepam effective statement will be in November 20, 2009. Besides, for the bond schedule for IDX listing is on December 2, 2009.

The bonds and sharia bonds here got AA- ratings from PT Pemeringkat Efek Indonesia.

When confirmed, Director of Investment Banking of Danareksa Sekuritas Marciano Herman was not available for comment last night, and so were SVP Head of Debt Capital Markets of CIMB Securities Indonesia A. Siwiwardhani and Director Kim Eng Securities Syahrizal Yusuf. (Bisnis/21)

Multifinance issued IDR3.5 trillion bonds: Many issuances taking place in semester I/2010

Multifinance issued IDR3.5 trillion bonds
Many issuances taking place in semester I/2010

JAKARTA: Multifinance company bond issuance next year is estimated to surpass this year bond issuance value of IDR3.5 trillion due to the total matured bonds worth IDR4.5 trillion.

Data of the IDX up to October shows the bond issuance value of multifinance company stood at IDR3.5 trillion or 18.31 percent as from the total bond issuance of all sectors worth IDR19.1 trillion.

VP Financial Institution Rating of PT Pemeringkat Efek Indonesia (Pefindo) Hendro Utomo said the multifinance sector bond issuance will bolster the total bond issuance next year. The bonds here are predicted to exceed the issuance of this yearend with the estimated value of IDR32 trillion.

"The dynamics of multifinance company bond issuance is absolutely done as they continue to disburse credit particularly next year when the economy has better outlook than this year," he said to Bisnis this week.

The maturing bonds next year stand at IDR10.94 trillion of which some IDR4.5 trillion bonds will have the due date at the same period.

There are some factors determining the growing bond issuance here.

First, the prospect of multifinance credit channeling will grow up along with the rising expectation of car and motorbike sales in automotive sector.

Second, with the possible rise of interest rate by semester II/2010, the bond issuance windows in semester I will be higher than that of remaining period next year to cut down the issuance cost.

The cost is set from the offered coupon to the investors. Besides, the issuance will be favored by the mounting lending interest rate as multifinance will have more aggressive credit expansion.

The interest rate influences new corporate bond issuance as it is based on the offered coupons to the investors which will use yield of the government bonds (SUN) which moves along with the lending rate.

Higher rate will lead to the mounting SUN yield and thus lifts up higher the bond coupon which consequently will spend mor cost to pay the bond coupon.

Third, the growing interest rate will not influence the bond issuance value. Hendro said the financing will be more aggressive and concentrate more on the issuance in semester I. The company in this sector will compete for the chance to issue bonds at the same period.

However, there is possibility that multifinance sector seeks other more effective and efficient option other than bond issuance through public offering, namely the bank loan and medium term notes issuance (MTN).

MTN issuance has shorter tenure and more efficient if compared to the conventional bonds cost.

Besides, the more issuance of MTN this year tends to lure investors noting that there are some investment managers that cover the closely issued notes and change them into mutual fund.

The MTN issuance in previous years was far less than this year. Bisnis records the trend here is marked by the same notes issuance by PT Federal International Finance (FIF) worth totally IDR1 trillion and by PT Astra Sedaya Finance IDR500 billion.

President Director of PT Adira Dinamika Multifinance Stanley Setia Atmaja predicted the bond issuance value next year from multifinance company could be even higher by 15-20 percent than the matured bonds next year worth IDR4.5 trillion. This is due possibly to the fact that the company fails to shift it to bank loans. (Bisnis/21/mts)

In the meantime, the total amount of fund it oversees ranks second largest among four investment managers, with Schroders Investment, Fortis Investments, and Mandiri Manajemen Investasi being the other three. (Bisnis/21)

Demand for PKT bonds stands at IDR2.6 trillion

JAKARTA: Demand for II/2009 bonds and I/2009 sharia bonds of PT Pupuk Kalimantan Timur (Pupuk Kaltim) got double oversubscription, or IDR2.6 trillion, of the total issuance of IDR1.3 trillion.

Bisnis resource said the emitter set 10.5 percent coupon and yield for each instrument to the investor.

"The coupon was set yesterday and the offer was closed," he said to Bisnis yesterday.

The largest composition of investors in the instrument here is pension fund and insurance which stood at 40-60 percent of the total issuance. The II/2009 bond and I/2009 sharia bonds of Pupuk Kaltim was set at IDR1 trillion and IDR300 billion.

When asked, Director of Investment Banking of PT Danareksa Sekuritas Marciano Herman declined to comment. He just said the demand for the bonds was beyond the emitter expectation and Danareksa. Danareksa Sekuritas acted as the underwriter in this case.

Finance Director of Pupuk Kaltim Eko Sunarko was not available for comment last night.

Some 20 percent of the fund raked from the issuance of both bond series here will be allotted for the construction of NPK fused blending fertilizer factory. The rest will be budgeted for working capital.

Pupuk Kaltim has just got IDR3 trillion loan commitment from the syndicated six banks led by PT Bank Mandiri Tbk to construct fertilizer factory, Pupuk Kaltim V.

Not simply from Bank Mandiri, the loans come either from PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk (BRI), PT Bank Negara Indonesia Tbk, PT Bank Central Asia Tbk, Bank Pembangunan Daerah DKI, and Bank Pembangunan Kalimantan Timur.

The company eyes on a total of US$115-120 million loans from BRI for the coal boiler construction.

Formerly the company intended to finance gasification through bond and sharia bond issuances.

Until last month, data of IDX shows the bond issuance in rupiah denomination domestic stood at IDR19.1 trillion.

Danareksa Sekuritas could have the market shares of underwriting by 20.3 percent with underwriting value of IDR3.83 trillion from the total issuances. (21)

Behind the coupon of Pupuk Kaltim's bonds

In the middle of passive appetite condition of domestic investors, PT Pupuk Kalimantan Timur (Pupuk Kaltim) decide let their bond II/2009 and sukuk I/2009's investor receive a 10.5% p.a. coupon. The investors already close their portofolio investment strategy earlier this year after booked high return since the economic turndown caused by global crisis last year.

Demand asked for the two kind of debt securities has 5 years tenures, which showed that the invesment instrument will matured in 2014, have shown that the investment appetite of domestic investors haven't fell to the lowest level.

The asked demand amount from the investors reach doubled of its original numbers, from it's earlier-decided size, IDR1.3 trillion, says someone who involve in the transaction. The demand, he said, reach Rp2.6 trillion.

"The book building process have settled the yield both for the bond and the ijarah sukuk," he said to by telephone interview, earlier this night.

Chief of Financial Officer of Pupuk Kaltim Eko Sunarko just read my text massage that I have sent earlier. He said the numbers haven't decided yet by the company and the underwriter. But the newspaper still must published in the morning, so his decline word can't be printed down.. (*My humble sorry pak Eko, the show must go on*). -- Please read Bisnis Indonesia newspaper daily this morning first or search it in, then read again this article.

The state-owned corporation must be greet the result, because another private bond issuer have decided to give their investors a far-bigger coupon, around 150 basis points (bps), or equals with 1.5% spread.

But their investors should asked the underwriter about the decision to make yield from the government bond 5 year tenured, FR00051 series, to become the counting basis for their coupon's yield.

The possibility cames to a conclusion. The series have a lower yield, that may made the management of Pupuk Kaltim doesn't have to lend high coupon to the insurance and pension fund investors, that have been the bond's most investor, around 40% -- 60%.

At least there are two things that not fit with the yield and arrangement. First of all, is about the liquidity that not as much as the other series that have a closer and fairer maturity date compared with the series, FR00026.

The FR00051 haven't trade much in high volume by traders and investors because it's have just issued by the Debt Management Office - Department of Finance at the begining of the year. And it is caused by the yield from the secondary market is not as high as other series with identical tenure.

The second one is about the tenure that doesn't close with the maturity date cause the FR00051 will mature in the beginning of 2014, far from the maturity date of Pupuk Kaltim's securities in November. And FR00026 have fairer time, that is longer than November, so it is has more significantly side for the investors than the other series.

But after all..the coupon nominals have decided. Even by the also-state-owned securities company that helped Pupuk Kaltim issues the bond and sukuk, PT Danareksa Securities, that easier to get investor in domestic areas, especially from also-state-owned kind of investors.

And like Yoda said in The Empire Strikes Back (1980), "So be it."

Government rakes IDR3.55 trillion from SUN tender

JAKARTA: The return of the Indonesian government bonds (SUN) in October 2009 stood at -1.09 percent or the lowest among the 12 Asian countries but Japan.

Data released by HSBC Holdings Plc mentions the highest bond return was given by Sri Lanka of 3.51 percent, then Pakistan 2.68 percent, India 1.07 percent ans Vietnam 1.02 percent.

Director General of Debt Management - Department of Finance Rahmat Waluyanto said the return is influenced by the risk perception of a promissory note. If Indonesian bond return is low or drastically declining, it implies the risk perception of foreign exchange SUN declined.

"Return here shows that the Indonesian government bonds risk perception is low. This is proved by the rating given by the Moody's Investors Service and S&P [Standard & Poor's] which improve the rating outlook as of stable into positive rating," he said to Bisnis yesterday.

The low risk perception then leads to the inflow of overseas capital to government bonds market so as to increase the price and capital gain and plunge the return.

Based on the data of the directorate, the total overseas possession of the government bonds in October 2009 rose up to IDR8.39 trillion into IDR101.62 trillion from September IDR93.23 trillion.

The data last week mentions the soaring overseas ownership went along with the growing government bond traded from IDR567.37 trillion end of September into IDR574.97 per October 29.

As from IDR574.97 trillion, bank owns IDR256.09 trillion, BI IDR23.21 trillion, mutual fund IDR44.20 trillion, insurance IDR70.50 trillion and pension fund IDR37.56 trillion, securities IDR640 billion, and other parties IDR41.15 trillion.

Bond analyst of PT Trimegah Securities Tbk Ariawan said the overseas investors placing their funds on global bonds have long term investment horizon and thus the trade is not liquid.

Yesterday the government sold three series of SUN worth IDR3.55 trillion as from four bonds series offered. The incoming bid stood at IDR5.14 trillion. the number of divested SUN was higher than the indicative target of the government's formerly set target of IDR3 trillion.

Yield set by the government for FR0036 series is 10.25 percent, FR0044 at 10.65 percent, and FR0052 in 10.76953 percent.

Ariawan said the tender was successful noting that the bidders called for relatively low yield so the government could sell the investment instrument here in large quantities.

The tender yesterday could minimize negative sentiment among investors and bolster SUN price with potential pressure to the yield by 5-10 bps up to next weekend. (Bisnis/rni/21)

Theories about Optima's acquisition by Garuda Capital

Theories about Optima's acquisition by Garuda Capital

Numbers of theory float up to the surface, when several news about acquisition plan of Optima Group by PT Garuda Capital Investama blown in many newspaper in a week or two. A few of my colleagues in capital market have their own theory that cames from reading clues and hear stuff related with the issue and know from another sources.

Optima Group consists of PT Optima Kharya Capital Securities and the subsidiary PT Optima Kharya Capital Management. Optima Securities taking care of brokerrage and underwriting business, when Optima Management controls the investment management and keeps their mutual funds growth.

The sources said Garuda Capital is founded by political deal between the existing government with the owners of money that parked in the outside of Indonesia. The value of the runaway asset is estimated more than Rp100 trillion.

As we know, many account made in foreign country around 1998, after the turbulance of economic crisis rise up, and the dictatorship of five-star-General President Soeharto was collapsed by chaos and strikes in Jakarta and other cities.

Mostly, the account keeps the hot money in tax haven such as Switzerland, British Virgin Island, Singapore, Cayman Island, and many place around the world.

They said, the problems of defaulting discretionary fund (KPD/kontrak pengelolaan dana) that happens in the Grup Optima in these one or two years make the company's price sinking to the lowest level.

What makes them think that way? Just one name, Subur Budhisantoso, former Chairman of Democrat Party, the winner of two national elections who brings Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) to the throne of president of the nation for the second period.

Subur's name and conviction in many newspaper said that the person is just one of officials came from the blue-starred-party to control the company. Many officials from Democrat Party, he said, also taking care of investment that will flew in from many countries, especially USA.

The story flow to the intension of SBY's will to bring 'home' the hot money back to Indonesia, to finance many projects in the real sector of economy, to build power plants, factory, bridges, houses, and several dam. The money laundry method also associated with the SBY economic growth targets about 6-8% in the next 5 years.

The agreement itself have issued before the time of SBY, when Abdurrachman Wahid sit on the Indonesia's No.1 hot chair. Because of the short term of the presidential of the theologian leader that have a several physically limitations, the plan was sinking. And the plan didn't run well when Megawati Soekarnoputri comes up to the president throne because too many officials in the period see the same thing.

The flight of the money from the hot account should be camouflaged, so it intends to flow through capital market. The capital market 'toll way' will be the easiest way for the 'washed' money because it won't detected by the central bank (Bank Indonesia) or Center of Reporting and Analysis for Financial Transactions (PPATK/Pusat Pelaporan dan Analisis Transaksi Keuangan).

What makes the theory is convincing were because there is no doubt about the interconnections between the party and Garuda Capital, and no argue about the intention of Garuda Capital to taking care of Optima Group.

Several things that make the first theory is vulnerable is about the existing of Garuda Capital itself, the competency of Optima Group that decent to earn the acquisition, or the possibility of the rumors was blown by the Optima Group itself to keep the client confident and stay loyal the company.

The camouflaged way also preferred by the related officials neither from Democrat Party or the SBY's cabinet because it won't be monitored by The Capital Market and Finance Institution Supervisory Agency (Bapepam-LK/Badan Pengawas Pasar Modal dan Lembaga Keuangan) as long as the investment management have a will to keep the investors identity save. It is reasonable because Bapepam-LK don't have any authority to revealed the source of investment money.

The existing of Garuda Capital is doubted when their office can not found. Many reporters in the capital market adds that the Garuda news rumors supplied by numbers people that have many projects to advertise news in industry with certain pay. It's indicating that the rumors is driven by people that willing to make purposive stories in the capital market.

The second reason is because the Optima don't worth to bailed out by any buyers, because they already have many problems to resolve. Their problems include the legal case filed by former Optima Management's CEO, Antonius T.P. Siahaan to his former business client, Optima Securities' CEO and owner of Optima Group, Harjono Kesuma.

Antonius manage the discretionary fund and runs many mutual funds, but the investment asset in the discretionary fund hooked in the repurchase agreement (repo) that conclude shares of companies from Bakrie Group. He claims that the defaulting investment are not his responsibility, want to clear his name from the company's problems, and don't want his asset value in the Optima decline that caused by market downturn in the late year.

Many source said that defaulting asset in Optima's discre is caused by Bakrie's shares repo, that havent reach the target value. And its make the investment can not be pulled by the client in the short term, as long as the value doesn't match with the target.

The newest issue of Optima Management is the announcement of Harjono Kesuma and Chief Financial Officer of PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) Achmad Kuntjoro being suspect in a corruption case in the state-owned-company. The case which filed by board of commissioner of KAI were still related with discretionary fund managed by Optima. The investment worth Rp100 billion.

The KAI investing fund worth Rp100 billion in Juli into the discretionary fund, which promised to make gain around 20%. But the investment managers can't pay off when the investment matured.

So, Optima Group management asked Achmad Kuntjoro to reconstruct the called two-way-agreement and promised to settled in a few months. The reconstruction itself is disputed by the board of commissioner and give the issue to the Ministry of State-Owned-Company.

Lidyawati Herdianto, Head of PR & Promotion Optima Group said that the company are keeping to held the installment of restructured discretionary fund until the rollover of company's ownership and management is finished.

She says the several mutual funds that managed by Optima Management itself worth around Rp2 trillion. But she assured that the investors of company's mutual fund still can redempt their investment because it is placed in bank as the investment product's custody.

Bapepam-LK was also still investigate the Optima Group's management related with the suspension of Optima Securities' activities in the stock exchange and related with the defaulting of discretionary fund entrusted by the company's client.

"The investigation process still going on, and I can't tell anything related with the issue because I were prohibited by the law," says Inspection and Investigation Bureau Chief of Bapepam-LK Sarjito to the press last week.

The Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX/Bursa Efek Indonesia) Director of Trading and Controlling on Exchange Members Wan Wei Yiong said that the suspension was caused by the rollover of the ownership and management. But none of the reporters in the capital market buy that none sense statement.

The more reasonable cause that Wei Yiong told about the Optima Securities activity suspension is less-managed documentations related with stock trading and brokerage, the stuff that will related to something else that bigger than this problem.
