JAKARTA: The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) allocated IDR48 billion bonuses this year or rose 60 percent as from the bonuses of IDR30 billon last year.

The decision of bonus sharing to IDX management of 14 percent of the net profits last year was agreed in the AGMS Thursday despite the critics expressed by some bourse members (AB).

IDX President Director Ito Warsito said the soaring bonus is the consequences of the increase of self regulatory organization (SRO) staffers in last year so it needs additional funds to pay remuneration to all staffers.

“In IDX, bonus is not simply for the boards of directors. But it is remuneration to all employees. With the mounting number of employees, the IDR48 billion bonuses are deemed normal,” he said to Bisnis after AGMS.

All securities companies as the bourse members (AB) and IDX shareholders eventually approved the soaring bonus here. the GMS was attended by 113 shareholders or 97.41 percent of the shareholders with the voting rights.

Last year the bourse authority booked IDR343.5 billion net profit record or rose 47.8 percent from IDR232.4 billion. On the other hand, the revenue declined from IDR586.5 billion into IDR543.3 billion. “There is no rejection from the shareholders on the soaring bonus distribution. Let alone, IDX finance position is robust that it enables to the mounting bonuses,” he said.

Separately, AGMS of PT Kus­to­dian Sentral Efek Indonesia (KSEI) yesterday agreed to shre 14.7 percent bonus sharing as form net profits or worth IDR11.90 billion of the total net profits booked by the capital market custodian last year of IDR80.96 billion.

KSEI President Director Ananta Wi­yo­go said the bonus sharing here is adjusted to the other SRO like IDX. But he failed to provide further details.

AGMS of PT Kliring Penjaminan Efek Indonesia (KPEI) yesterday also scheduled to shre appreciation bonus. But it is not found out on how much the bonus allotment agreed by the meeting.

Responding to the soaring IDX bonus, Chief of Capital Market and Financial Institution Supervisory Agency (Badan Pengawas Pasar Modal dan Lembaga Keuangan/Bapepam-LK) Ahmad Fuad Rahmany considered it okay.

“The bonus given to the IDX employees is up to the bourse members. The GMS members are surely considered many things prior to decision making,” he said.

Ananta added the company will boost the program socialization of Securities Ownership (Acuan Kepemilikan Sekuritas/AKSes) this year. He failed to detail the socialization net specifically. But the budget is closing to DIR10 billion.

So far, the ASKes program is only an introductory to investors through advertisement and media coverage. Ananta said since ASKes release in June 2009, KSEI got 500 registrars which might be increasing following the aggressive socialization.

“Currently AKSes has 14,200 customers,” he added. (08/Irvin Avriano A./Pudji Lestari/Ratna Ari­yanti)
