JAKARTA: PT Aqua Golden Mississppi Tbk readies to have tender offer to public shareholders and does not change the reference pricing at the level of IDR450,000 per share unit.

Aqua President Director Parmaningsih said the price will be set up in the delisting process prior to becoming go private company.

The action is scheduled soon after the company got official notice from Bapepam-LK for continuing the go private process.

"We have just received the notice two days ago and has not defined yet the schedule for processing the document to Bapepam-LK. But we hope we can do it as soon as possible," she said yesterday.

The company effort to do the go private process deals with the completion of investigation by Bapepam-LK. The investigation execution was based on the complaints addressed by some shareholders who suspected the data manipulation in the process.

Real Sector Company Finance Assessment Bureau Chief of Bapepam-LK Anis Baridwan said Bapepam-LK does not find any violation so the company is allowed to continue the corporate action.

"The probe is over which marks that the process can go on. But if there is sanction from the investigation, I have no idea. Please ask the Investigation Bureau," he said.

He regretted the delisiting of Aqua from the capital market as the capital market will lose one stock of one emitter. But Bapepam-LK could not intervene the decision here as it is the decision made by the shareholders in the extraordinary general meeting of shareholders.

The company this year shared IDR1,800 per share dividend or DIR23.69 billion or 24.7 percent of the total corporate IDR95.91 billion net profits booked by the company last year.

Parmaningsih added that the company also allotted IDR72.22 billion funds from the net profits as the retained earnings.

"We allocated higher retained earning than our dividend as we usually have earlier purchase for our revenue, that is the packaging production."

The company is optimistic to tap a 12.75 percent increase of the net profit as from IDR2.73 trillion last year into DIR3.08 trillion this year due to the mounting consumer demands.

The large capacity of production serves as one of the corporate optimisms to boost the target this year.

The soaring sales equals with the water sales volume or increased by 10.31 percent this year as from 6.57 billion liters last year into 7.25 billion liters. (Bisnis/Iaa)

SUN price skyrocketing: Moody's increases Indonesia debt rating prospect

SUN price skyrocketing: Moody's increases Indonesia debt rating prospect

Irvin Avriano A.

JAKARTA: The government debt rating prospect from stable to positive level given by the Moody's Investor Ser-vices yesterday gave a boost to the government bond (SUN) trade and price at secondary market by 100-250 basis points (bps).

Based on the data of the Inter Dealer Market Association (IDMA/Himadsun), the SUN price index scored 159 bps from the level of 102.8 percent to 104.43 percent triggered by the massive buy of foreign investors upon considering the diminishing risk of investment.

"The buy action happened yesterday was the overseas investors typical larg amount of transaction. Rarely local investors buy in such a large amount of buy," said Fixed Income Division Head of PT Anugerah Securindo Indah Ramdhan Ario Maruto yesterday.

The skyrocketing SUN price was seen particularly to the FR007 series by 15 bps, FR0052 by 313 bps, and FR0040 by 145 bps. The mounting price continued the significant rally since a month before or last week in particular.

As to Ramdhan, SUN hike happened was not due simply to the upgrading prospect of Indonesia rating but also the positive sentiment of the appreciation of Yuan China leading to US dollar depreciation to almost all Asian currencies including rupiah.

The other reason is the time limit factor for foreign investors possession to the BI promissory notes (SBI) which led the investors composition of portfolio to SUN.

The portion of foreign ownership portion of SUN also increased into 24.68 percent by end of last week from 24.31 percent June 15. That was the top since the SUN issuance due to the surpassing position of April 29 of 24.61 percent.

The skyrocketing SUN price which is on contrary to the yield level here reflected the less expensive cost of fund borne by the government and also corporation to seek funding resource at the market.

The escalating SUN market situation also happened to the stock market. Yesterday, the index hit the top record along the history at 2,981.28 as from the previous record of 2,971.25 on April 30, 2010. The index was closed at robust position by 0.42 percent at the level of 2,941.90.

The soaring index also happened simultaneously to the soaring Asian regional bourse and global bourse driven by the sentiment of China to provide flexibility of yuan. Market considered the policy to upsize liquidity of global fund flow.

Moody's rating yesterday upgraded the outlook prospect of rupiah and global denominated bond rating in Indonesia from stable to positive level. Indonesia bond rating was set at Ba2 level.

The mounting rating prospect here also happened to the ceiling of global denominated bond rating from Ba1 level and the ceiling of global denominated deposit rating at Ba3 level.

The growing rating also forced Moody's to increase the rating prospect of two other companies, PLN and PGN from stable to positive levels. The rating of both firms was set at Ba2.

Moody's last rating action to Indonesia was on September 16, 2009 as from Ba2 level with stable outlook.

Separately, Deputy Governor of Bank Indonesia Hartadi A. Sarwono said the positive outlook given by Moody's showed the potential chances to increase Indonesia rating to the investment grade in the upcoming year still require two notches.

As to him, the revision made by Moody's was based on the expectation and it is time to change noting that Moody's rating is lower than rating given by S&P (BB/positive) and the Fitch (BB+stable).

Finance Minister Agus D.W. Martowardojo said the mounting debt rating encourage the government to maintain monetary and fiscal stability to meet the investment grade.

Economist of Mandiri Sekuritas Destry Damayanti said the so much awaited now is the re-rating story in which Indonesia is projected to be back to grad investment level." (Bisnis/iaa/agi/aca/hta/bsi)

Pefindo to Inject Capital to PHEI

Pefindo to Inject Capital to PHEI

Irvin Avriano A.

JAKARTA: Indonesia securities rating company PT Pemeringkat Efek Indonesia (Pefindo) confirms to inject IDR1 billion capital to PT Penilai Harga Efek Indonesia (PHEI/IBPA).

"We probably will inject them [PHEI] with capital, but we are still reviewing the value. It will probably be around IDR1 billion," informed President Director of Pefindo Ronald Tauviek Kasim to Bisnis yesterday.

He revealed the decision, which was nearly final, was not made by Pefindo Shareholders General Meeting held earlier this month since the amount was less than 10% of the equities injected by the rating company.

According to him, the decision on the amount of equities injected by Pefindo would be made by other directors soon.

The shareholders in PHEI at the moment are only self regulatory organizations (SRO) in the capital market consisting of PT Kustodian Sentral Efek Indonesia (KSEI), PT Kliring Penjaminan Efek Indonesia (KPEI), and Indonesia Stock Exchange (BEI).

The company has IDR30 billion in equities, which are divided equally among the three SROs, making each SRO own a 33.33% stake.

Previously, President Director of KSEI Ananta Wiyogo disclosed if Pefindo injected equities to PHEI, Pefindo might own a 3.22%--3.33% assuming the amount of equities injected was still IDR1 billion.

Ananta explained the old shareholders were sounding two options, namely selling SRO-owned shares or increasing shares in PHEI.

If Pefindo acquired new shares that PHEI was about to issue, Pefindo would control a 3.22% stake. However, if Pefindo acquired shares from the old shareholders, it would seize a 3.33% stake.

The Capital Market and Financial Institution Supervisory Agency (Bapepam-LK) Regulation V.C.3 on Securities Price Appraiser allows Pefindo, as a non-financial institution, to control a 20% stake in PHEI.

Ananta also argued the SROs actually hoped for new investors other than Pefindo in PHEI.

"We want there will be other parties to avoid an impression that Pefindo is being prioritized," Ananta said last week.

Director of PHEI Hasan Fawzi said Pefindo's plan to inject equities was the authority of the company's shareholders.

However, he viewed that what PHEI wanted was a strategic partnership with Pefindo. (Bisnis/iaa)

Multistrada gets US$185 million loans: Summarecon negotiates IDR250 billion loans
Irvin Avriano A.

JAKARTA: PT Multistrada Arah Sarana Tbk, car and motorcycle tire producer, got US$185 million loans for 2010 expansion.

Director of Multistrada J. Sukarman said the loan was attained from the syndicated banks of PT Bank Internasional Indonesia (BII), PT Bank CIMB Niaga Tbk, HSBC, and Credit Union from Germany with US$40 million loans.

" In addition to the expansion, some of the loans or US$30 million will be allotted for working capital to support the soaring production," he said in Jakarta yesterday.

The production rise here is the mounting production of car tires from 16,000 tires per day into 22,500 tires per day by end of the year. Early next year, the capacity will be 28,500 tires per day.

"With expanding production capacity here, the company targets to grow the revenue by IDR2.2 trillion and IDR5 trillion next year. The capital expenditure budget this year is US$150 million and we have spent US$15 million," he added.

Despite the outstanding debt of US$40 million and US$16 million should be paid quarterly, the company is optimistic the additional US$185 million loans will not worry the debt to equity ratio. Last year the company booked IDR174.86 billion net profits and this year the net profit is estimated at IDR152 billion.

Regarding the acquisition scheme of PT Astra International Tbk for tire company this year, President Director of Multistrada Pieter Tanuri claimed to be ready for Astra acquisition. But he fails to detail the amount of the stock offer.

Separately, property developer PT Summarecon Agung Tbk has been negotiating loan with a private bank to fund the IDR250 billion Summarecon Serpong Mall project.

President director of Summarecon Jo-hanes Mardjuki said the loan is part of the debts allotment as the capital expenditure worth IDR800 billion up to next year.

"We allocate the capital expenditure for Manara I apartment, Harris Hotel, Summarecon Bekasi phase I, and Summarecon Serpong Mall. But, we cannot name the bank identity for the IDR250 billion loans as it is not finalized yet," he said.

Johanes added the loan will complete the IDR250 billion loans provided by PT Bank Mandiri Tbk to finance infrastructure development in Summarecon Bekasi.

With that loan, the regulation requires the company to change Bank Mandiri as the trustee board of the II/2008 bonds and I/2008 sukuk to PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk. (Bisnis/iaa)

6 investment managers agree for merger

6 investment managers agree for merger
Irvin Avriano A.

JAKARTA: The effort made by Bepepam-LK to put aside investment manager (IM) with limited capital less than IDR25 billion from the bourse has succeeded upon noting that six out of 99 IMs have merged.

Investment Management Bureau Chief of Bapepam-LK Djoko Hendratto said the merger is done along with the capital market authority to increase the requirement of capital placement for IM as from IDR5 billion into IDR25 billion.

Merger is the feasible option to fulfill the requirement of the minimum capital rise here. IM has adjusted to the condition. "Based on the report, there have been six (IM) companies merged but I forget their names," said Djoko in Jakarta yesterday.

Finance Ministry plans to apply new regulation stipulating the IM capital placement into IDR25 billion as required by the revision of Finance Minister Decree (KMK) No.179/010/2003.

The regulation revision so far is still in seeking market players input. But in the draft, it is mentioned IM proposing for new permit should prepare IDR25 billion capital as from earlier requirement of IDR5 billion.

Responding to the revision of new regulation, Bapepam-LK called IM to have self adjustment. The regulation will be enacted next year. Bapepam-LK then is encouraged to increase IM capital placement up to IDR15 billion.

Djoko also said the merger is one of the option for IM with less than IDR25 billion capital. The option for selling the license may not be done for Bapepam-LK prohibition.

IM license sell and purchase is still banned because new IM license is still under suspension since 2007 which will then be opened in quarter III/2010. But capital market authority still focuses on the licensed IM evaluation.

"We hope the evaluation of each IM will prevent from permit sell and purchase which causes the change of the responsible management to the company operational," he said.

Now IM with less than IDR25 billion capital participation is only one or two as reflected from the many companies issuing RDPT stipulating the IDR25 billion capital participation.

Djoko statement is against the data of the mutual fund information center fo Bapepam mentioning the 25 IM with less than IDR25 billion capital. But Djoko ensures the data is not fully updated yet. (Bisnis/iaa)

SBI restricted, SUN price mounted: Corporate bond emitter to get benefited

SBI restricted, SUN price mounted: Corporate bond emitter to get benefited
Irvin Avriano A.
Bisnis Indonesia

JAKARTA: The restriction of investment period at the BI promissory notes lead to the much more fund flowing to bond market and mounting the government bonds (SUN) pricing.

The SUN price index the last three weeks sharply jumped by 357 basis points. Data of the Government Bond Traders Association (Himadsun) shows that SUN index climbed up since May 26 hitting from the 98.34 percent level to 102.06 percent yesterday.

On contrary, the yield of SUN with 10 years tenure as the target plunged sharply to the lowest level since June 2005. The yield of FR0031 SUN series maturing in November 2010 decliend by 79 basis points from 9.28 percent on May 26 into 8.49 percent yesterday.

The government discourse to have foreign capital flow restriction last year finally resulted in the investment restriction of SBI by stipulating obligatorily the investors here to hold the instrument for one month at minimum.

The policy will be implemented by July 7 to both foreign and local investors. However, the central bank statement prior to the deliberation of the policy has boosted up the incoming capital to bond market.

Head of Debt Capital Markets of PT NC Securities Heru Helbianto predicted the better SUN market condition will continue with the SBI investment restriction.

"Investment profile of SUN and SBI investors are different, but later there will be little diversification dealing with the restriction problem here to share investment portfolio of each investor," he said yesterday.

He said investors in SBI market has short term profile unlike the SUN investors profiles.

PT Penilai Harga Efek Indonesia (PHEI/IBPA) President Director Ignatius Girendroheru said the price rally has happened upon the worsening European market sparked by the Greece debt crisis.

The falling SUN yield benefits the company with the bond issuance scheme because SUN yield becomes the standard of coupon or corporate bond interest setting. The companies eyeing bonds include PT Selamat Sempurna Tbk, and PT Srana Multigriya Finansial.

Furthermore, BI will also issue 9 and 12 months tenure instruments to keep the capital inflow longer in Indonesia.

"One positive thing for the bond market of BI regulation is the investors that do not plan to buy SBI will play with bond due to the absence of instrument restriction," said analyst of PT Mandiri Sekuritas Handy Yunianto as quoted by Bloomberg yesterday.

Data compiled by HSBC Holdings Plc shows SUN has provided yield up to 10.5 percent this year or considered the best performance as form the other 10 Asian bond markets.

Data of the debt management directorate general per January to June 15 shows that foreign investor possession increased form DIR115.02 trillion into IDR149.32 trilion or 19 percent into 24 percent as form the total of tradable SUN worth IDR590.15 trillion into IDr614.03 trillion. (Bisnis/iaa/pul)

Danareksa Sekuritas is one of the underwriters of the joint issuance with PT CIMB Securities Indonesia.

In public expose yesterday, Erica said the emitter plans to issue bonds in two tranche with 2 and 3 years tenure.

"All the proceeds will be allotted for channeling KPR (housing loans)."

Permission for Investment Managers Reopened: Association Asks for Clarification about IDR25 Billion Payable Equity Requirement

Permission for Investment Managers Reopened: Association Asks for Clarification about IDR25 Billion Payable Equity Requirement

Irvin Avriano A.
Bisnis Indonesia

JAKARTA: The Capital Market and Financial Institution Supervisory Agency (Bapepam-LK) confirms new permissions for securities firms and investment managers will be issued again by July or the third quarter.

Chariman of the Bapepam-LK Ahmad Fuad Rahmany said the permit issuance reopening was related to the revised Minister of Finance 179/010/2003.

"We can issue permits again to investment managers by the third quarter," he informed last weekend.

New permits have been suspended since 2007 to impose order on the high number of investment managers.

In that year, the mutual fund market was resurgent after it slumped in 2005. Therefore, the Bapapem-LK viewed the industry's fundamentals had to be maintained by tightly monitoring investment managers.

The suspension once discouraged several new investment manager candidates, such as Deutsche Group, DBS Group, and Kim Eng Securities.

At the same time, however, several irregularities in the investment management industry had been uncovered, such as the cases of PT Optima Kharya Capital Management and PT Synergi Asset Management.

As of the end of March 2010, Data by the Bapepam-LK recorded there were 99 registered investment managers. In the meantime, the Bapepam-LK's Mutual Fund Data Center recorded only 90 registered investment managers.

In the Minister of Finance draft, one of the important articles is a requirement for a new investment manager to have a payable equity of at least IDR25 billion.

The registered investment managers are given a year to adjust with the new requirement, with IDR15 billion in payable equity to be paid this year.

Vice Chairperson of the Indonesian Mutual Fund Managers Association (Asosiasi Pengelola Reksa Dana Indonesia/APRDI) Bowo Witjaksono Suhardjo hoped the capital market authorities would allow investment managers that could not fulfill the IDR25 billion requirement to merge themselves.

He added another option of selling shares or permits should also be allowed to meet the principle of fairness.

"It is because there has not yet been any clear explanation why the payable equity should be fixed at IDR25 billion. Previously, the requirement only applies to private equity mutual fund."

Bowo viewed there had been an impression that the authority wanted to reduce the number of investment managers in a subtle way.

The new organizers of the association, he continued, also wanted to fight for the segmentation of investment managers based on their activities and payable equity, which was international common, like already practiced by Singapore.

According to Bowo, the requirement had made it difficult for several investment managers interested in the mutual fund industry that had no sufficient capital.

However, Fuad asserted currently there were no regulations limiting investment managers to merge their businesses.

"What is prohibited is if they [investment managers] still have unsettled problems."

Previously, Investment Management Bureau Chief of Bapepam-LK Djoko Hendratto disclosed the capital market authority delayed issuing permits for merger or change of majority shareholders in investment managers due to the suspension period.

In February 2010, the Bapepam-LK revoked the permits of Brahma Capital and Danpac Asset Management (PT Danpac Investama). Earlier this month, the authority also suspended the sale of PT Manulife Aset Manajemen Indonesia mutual fund sold by its holding company, PT Asuransi Jiwa Manulife Indonesia (Manulife Indonesia).

Revoke permit
Separately, the Bapepam-LK yesterday revoked the permits of investment manager, broker, and underwriter PT Eurocapital Peregrine Securities after the case has been processed since 2008.

Based on the explanation on the official website of the capital market, Eurocapital is considered to have violated regulations on repurchase agreement (repo), adjusted net working capital, and undisbursed mutual fund.

The decision of Fuad Rahmany reads that the company violates the Bapepam-LK Regulation V.G.1 on Behaviors Prohibited for Investment Managers, Regulation IV.B.1 on Guide to the Management of Collective Investment Contract Mutual Fund Management, and Regulation V.D.5 on Adjusted Net Working Capital Report.

In addition, the company has also violated Article 27 clause (1), Article 36 (b), 37 (a), and 45 of Law 8/1995 on Capital Market.

The Bapepam-LK found PT Duta Anggada Realty Tbk had made repurchase agreement transaction without the permission of the owner of the collateral shares, Tower Track Ltd, which is the customer of Eurocapital. The share is made as collateral to the Plantation Pension Fund.

In the transaction, the company also bought Duta Anggada stock (coded DART) from Tower Track for the two mutual funds managed by the company, namely Reksa Dana Euro Peregrine Berimbang Plus and Reksa Dana Euro Peregrine Equity.

Due to the transaction and transaction-related actions, the company could not disburse the mutual fund to its customer, Asuransi Jiwasraya.

The company is also found guilty for promising fixed return to its customer, Wahjudi of PT Reasuransi Nasional Indonesia, for its discretionary fund. The product also violates regulations since it isn't placed in an account separated from the company's account.

The case continued since President Director of Eurocapital Jodi Harjanto was in conflict with President Commissioner Rudi Rusli after the Bapepam-LK investigated the case.

Rudi even once alleged several Bapepam-LK officials of receiving money from Jodi to release the president director from legal litigation. (Bisnis/iaa/faa)

RI unready to join Asean Link: Bapepam-LK revises go public takeover regulation

Irvin Avriano A.

JAKARTA: The unpreparedness factor of the authority, regulation, and securities profile inequality have made Indonesia hard to join the join cooperation among bourse authorities so-called the Asean Link project.

Committee Coordinator of the Indonesian Securities Company Association (Asosiasi Perusahaan Efek Indonesia/APEI) Lily Widjaja said she has not made any decision whether or not to join the Asean Link because it should ensure the preparedness of the cooperation here.

"There must be a better self preparation so as not to harm us. We need to ensure that we are favored due the existence of our expected added value. There are many things to improve prior to joining the Asean Link," said Lily to Bisnis yesterday.

Asean Link is the cooperation with the capital market authorities in Southeast Asia which could help ease securities and bourse of the country members to have direct transaction.

President director of PT Danareksa Sekuritas Marciano H. Herman said Asean Link has positive impact and yet negative to the capital market in Indonesia.

"The positive side is that broker from other country could have access to our capital market which could expand the consumer basis. Emitter listing is benefited with their more expansive market."

Marciano said prior to joining the Asean Link scheme, local broker should have equality with international broker.

"There have been many international brokers in Indonesia. Meanwhile, there is only less Indonesian broker abroad. The inequality should be taken into consideration."

He said if Indonesia decided to join with the business transaction through Asean Link scheme in the near future, it is likely to arise more negative impact because it might kill the local securities and broker.

"So far our securities and banks are difficult to open overseas branch offices. Meanwhile, there are many foreign securities and banks present in Indonesia. The point is that there must be equality first."

Bapepam-LK claimed its unpreparedness to join in the Asean Link among the other five other country members.

Chief of Bapepam-LK Ahmad Fuad Rahmany said the participation f Indonesia could be ensured when the market player and capital market authority of Indonesia have been able to compete against the other countries.

"Our securities are not yet capable (to compete with overseas securities) and therefore we should re-consider to join the Asian Link. If it benefits Indonesia in the short and long run, we will join then," he said last week.

He claimed to have proposed other Asean Link country members to review the participation of Indonesia capital market in the association is suspended through to 2013.

But now Bapepam-LK has not ensured the participation when the proposal was presented. "AT the time we said "maybe later in 2013', but it is just possibility."

One of the reasons is that it is intended to make the global capital market players feel at home and bolster their business domestically here.

Besides, the bargaining power of Indonesia as the large country with larger market potential serves as the one of higher bargaining powers than the other countries .

On the other side, Bapepam-LK tries to make efficient period of emitter major shareholding takeover drafted in the regulation revision as included in the Bapepam-LK revision draft IX.H.1 on the takeover of go public company.

Real Sector Company Financial Assessment Bureau Chief of Bapepam-LK Anis Baridwan said the regulation revision here is rather dealing with synergy of the XF.F.I revision on the tender offer of go public company.

"Both regulations need synergy. That is the point," he said to press last week.

Service Sector Company Financial Assessment of Bapepam-LK Noor Rachman added that the regulation revision also scrutinizes four conditions which bring about extension of book building period.

The four conditions here include the correction of stock exchange correction for three consecutive days, bourse closure, emitter stock exchange suspension, and riots or alike which potentially troubled the emitter operational and existence.

"It was never mentioned before. So the conditions for period expansion here is still awkward."

But both failed to detail the would-be changes made by the capital market authority in the regulation revision here. (Bisnis/10/iaa/faa)
