JAKARTA: PT Bahtera Adimina Samudra Tbk intends to sell 34 iron boats to paid off IDR75 billion in first series bond (2000) and its liabilities to the creditors.

Director and Corporate Secretary of Bahtera Adimina Panudju Adjie said the company was still negotiating with the creditors.

"We will focus this year on servicing our debts and liabilities before thinking of the company's business sustainability," he told Bisnis this week.

Bahtera Adimina is a bond issuer that is restructuring its matured bonds.

The default on bond is attributable to soaring fuel prices in 2005 and the operational suspension of the company in 2007. As of the end of 2009, the company still had IDR273.6 billion in current liabilities and IDR10.72 billion in non-current liabilities. Last year, the company also booked IDR53.07 billion in net loss.

The company has held several bondholders general meeting (RUPO) to discuss the bond payment. As of June, the company still defaulted on paying its 40th bond coupon.

The company was supposed to service its bond when it matured on June 5, but the company so far is still negotiating the way to service its liabilities.

He explained of the 34 boats, two were in Tual, Southeast Maluku and the rest were in China. According to him, nearly all of the ships were out of order, making the company plan to sell them in scraps.

"Since they have never been used, they are out of function right now. We have also sold off out wood boats."

According to him, the company had also got approval from the shareholders, who will help the company servicing its liabilities to the investors. He added this had been informed to Indonesia Stock Exchange (BEI).

Panudju also hinted the shareholders may sell assets to service the company's bond and debt.

In the information expose to BEI last weekend, Panudju disclosed the company asked for one or two months to determine what it would do next to service its debts. The company also opens the possibility for the creditors and bondholders to convert the debts to equities.(Bisnis/iaa)

H1 Underwriting Value Surges 13.81%

Irvin Avriano A.
Bisnis Indonesia

JAKARTA: Several foreign securities firms dominate the stock and bond underwriting market, commanding a total value of US$6.51 billion or IDR59.89 trillion in the first semester of this year.

The underwriting value surged by 13.81% from US$5.72 billion or IDR52.62 trillion (assuming the rupiah exchange rate at IDR9,200 per US dollar) due to the relatively better market condition.

The underwriting market this year is seized by 38 securities companies. There are 59 issuances committed this year. Last year, 23 underwriters issued 56 bonds and stocks.

Vice President Investment Banking of PT Danatama Makmur Steffen Fang was optimistic the corporate action value conducted in the second semester of 2010 would be bigger than the corporate action in the first semester of 2010.

According to him, several factors would create positive sentiments for the domestic economy to help the capital market, motivating publicly listed companies and potential ones to seek financing from the capital market.

"Initially, last year we predicted the underwriting market value at only IDR10 trillion. But, thanks to the better economic condition in Indonesia, the prediction missed. The outcome turns out to be better than we expected and we have not put into account the second semester of 2010 here," he said yesterday.

Data by Bloomberg showed Barclays Capital seized the largest market share after underwriting US$933 million in bond issuance. The foreign investment bank underwrote US$666 million in T-bond, US$117 million in Star Energy Geothermal Wayang Windu Ltd bond, and US$150 million in Listrindo Capital BV bond.

Last year, Barclays also topped the market by seizing a market share of 30% after it underwrote US$1.72 billion in T-bond issuance, which included US$217 million in global Islamic bond.

Although the issuance value this year was US$790 million lower from last year, bond issuance last year was dominated more by T-bonds.

The first position last year was held by Danatama Makmur, which found its performance boosting after underwriting PT Bakrie & Brothers Tbk medium-term notes.

Data also showed Danareksa Sekuritas, Indo Premier Securities, and Danatama Makmur, underwrote US$210 million in bond issuance in the first semester this year.

Research analyst at PT Majapahit Securities Tbk (formerly known as PT Asia Kapitalindo Securities Tbk) Arga Pradita Sutiono viewed the high number of corporate IPOs in the second semester of 2010 was attributable to delays in the IPOs last year when the stock exchange was resurgent.

"This also raises the question why there were few IPOs when the stock exchange rebounded last year?

According to him, that was attributable to the absence of corporate actions from the existing publicly listed companies. (Bisnis/iaa/pul)

JAKARTA: At least 12 companies will list their initial stocks on the stock exchange in the second semester of 2010, thanks to the increasingly upbeat market.

President Director of Indonesia Stock Exchange (BEI) Ito Warsito revealed the bourse authority so far had received initial public offering (IPO) documents from 12 companies.

"There are 12 companies in the pipeline, excluding state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and two dual listing companies. We don't revise the number of new publicly listed companies target," he said after the initial public offering of PT Nippon Indosari Corpindo Tbk in Jakarta yesterday.

The target is to have 25 new publicly listed companies this year. In the first semester of 2010, five companies listed their stocks on the stock exchange. If 12 new publicly listed companies follow in the second semester, there will be 17 companies conducting IPO this year.

The five companies conducted IPO in the first semester of 2010 were PT Elang Mahkota Teknologi Tbk, PT Benakat Petroleum Energy Tbk, PT Pembangunan Perumahan (Ltd) Tbk, PT Sarana Menara Nusantara Tbk, and PT Nippon Indosari Corpindo Tbk.

In the meantime, nine companies that have released their IPO plans are PT Berau Energy, PT Indopoly Swakarsa Industry, PT Molindo Raya Industri, PT SkyBee, PT Golden Prima Retailindo, PT Evergreen Invesco, PT Bank Sinarmas, PT Bukit Uluwatu Villa, and PT BPD Jabar Banten.

The total IPO realization in the first semester of 2010 reached IDR2.86 trillion, soaring 1,806.67% from IDR150.75 billion in the first semester of 2009. At the time, IPOs were conducted by PT Trikomsel Oke Tbk and PT Batavia Prosperindo Finance Tbk.

On the other hand, the rights issue scheme with pre-emptive rights or without non-preemptive rights in the first semester of 2010 were conducted by 11 publicly listed companies, raising IDR16.07 trillion.

Some of the eleven companies are PT AKR Corporindo Tbk, PT Bakrie Sumatera Plantations Tbk, PT Darma Henwa Tbk, PT Energi Mega Perkasa Tbk, PT Citra Mineral Investindo Tbk, PT Sumalindo Lestari Jaya Tbk, PT Intiland Development Tbk, and PT Multipolar Tbk.

The amount of fund raised from the rights issue skyrocketed 298.76% from IDR4,03 trillion raised last year from the rights issue of PT Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk and PT Indoexchange Tbk.

In the first semester of 2010, the Bakrie Group was the largest group raising funds from rights issue, reaching IDR10.24 trillion or equivalent to 63.72% of the total rights issue.

The amount of fund will increase in the second semester of 2010 following the rights issue plan of the two business units.

The two units are PT Bakrieland Development Tbk, targeting to raise IDR3.2 trillion, and PT Bumi Resources Tbk, projecting to raise US$495 million from non-preemptive rights issue. Most of the fund will be used for expansion and debt restructuring.

Some publicly listed companies outside the Bakrie Group that plan to conduct rights issue in the second semester of 2010 are PT Berlian Laju Tanker Tbk (IDR1.2 trillion), PT Dayaindo Resources Tbk (IDR1.98 trillion), and BNI (IDR4 trillion).

Statistical data showed the total amount of fund raised by publicly listed companies from IPO and rights issue in the first semester of 2010 hit IDR18.93 trillion, surging 352.87% from IDR4.18 trillion in the first semester of 2009.

Ito added currently around ten companies were in the process of issuing bonds worth a total of IDR12 trillion. "Most of them issue bonds to finance expansion." Bisnis recorded the bond value was equivalent to half of IDR25.63 trillion in bond issuance in 2009.

Last year, bond issuance jumped 99.3% from IDR12.86 trillion in 2008. This year, BEI targets to see 34 new bonds.

However, the bonds that have been officially listed are only PT SMS Finance I bond (IDR120 billion), PT PLN XI bond (IDR2.7 trillion), PLN IV Islamic bond (IDR300 billion), and PT BFI Finance (IDR160 billion).

Peak point
Head of Research at PT Mandiri Sekuritas Ari Pitoyo viewed an increase in share issuance during the peak point of the capital market was normal since share prices were at their best.

"Using car sales as an analogy, car sellers surely will sell cars when the prices are high since the high supply of cars is needed."

He added the capital market recovery was one of main yardsticks for the domestic economic recovery since there was strong correlation between the capital market and the economy.

The capital marker authority viewed the upbeat IPO and rights issue could lead to an assumption that the national economy had recovered.

"We hope this can convince economic players that the economy will recover," said Head of the Real Sector Companies Financial Assessment Bureau at the Bapepam-LK Anis Baridwan. (Bisnis/iaa/ags/08/bsi/cp)

JAKARTA: The scheme of the general master repo agreement (master repo) discussion is delayed from the early year schedule into next year following the resignation of the legal consultant for the scheme discussion here.

The scheme is the new standard reference for repurchase agreement (repo) at the capital market.

"It is delayed due to the resignation of the appointed legal consultant and now we still look for the substitution," said chairman of the Indonesia Securities Companies Association (APEI) Antony Kristanto yesterday.

Some associations of capital market jointly in the working group sill discuss the concept for the master repo of market players here.

The repo scheme formulation has been suggested by capital market players, capital market authority, and self regulatory organization (SRO) early this year.

Not only APEI, the working group of master repo formulation also involved some associations of other capital market players, namely the Government Bonds Traders Association (Himadsun) and Indonesian Custodian Bank Association.

Antony added the framework on the discussion will also become a recommendation from Indonesia in the form of Indonesia Annex'.

The additional is given in the international standard practice in the master repo from International Swaps and Derivatives Association Inc. The repo regulation is internationally applicable.

"For Indonesia, there is certain addition because we also want to include the stock repo in the master repo. Thus we are collecting aspiration from each market player. Meanwhile, for international practice, is applicable only for debt. "

To seek aspiration from market players, the working group has just sent questionnaires to 150 securities and 175 banks.

As from the figure, some 80 percent has sent back their recommendation and already accommodated. The rest is not actively having transaction both conventional or repo way.

Aspiration collection is useful to accommodate hope and seek the best form for applicable repo transaction so as to be adjustable to the master repo.

Director of PT Sarana Multigriya Finansial Yudhi Ismail, the former Himdasun chairman, considered GMRA will not work out well if BI does not apply it in each transaction by the banking authority.

"So far the existing master repo is used by bank because BI does not use alone the deal they are proposing. If master repo is not used, BI will be in vain as there no bank or other players to apply the regulation."

Bapepam-LK, capital market players, and banks plan to call for mandatory stock and bond repo report. (Bisnis/iaa)

Corporate bond issuance mushrooming this year: Bond coupon pontetially drops

Corporate bond issuance mushrooming this year: Bond coupon pontetially drops

Irvin Avriano A.
Bisnis Indonesia

JAKARTA: Corporate bond issuance is to go beyond the prediction this year following the crashing yield of the government bond following the soaring Indonesia debt rating prospect.

Based on Bisnis data, corporate bond issuance this year has reached IDR36.54 trillion or rose 25.04 percent as from IDR29.22 trillion realization last year.

Corporate bond issuance in semester I/2010 consisted of 15 bond series both conventional and sukuk worth IDR12.09 trillion.

The amount is potentially to grow up plus the IDR11.6 trillion bond issuance which is process of Bapepam-LK and IDX.

Besides, some companies mostly finance sectors plan to issue IDR12.85 trillion bonds in semester II/2010.

The companies here include PT Bank Jabar Banten, PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk, and Perum Pegadaian which each plans to issue IDR2 trillion bonds.

The issuance value excluded the issuance of derivative bond in the form of asset securitization through the asset-backed securities (KIK EBA) scheme. The instrument issued last year stood at IDR445.11 billion.

EBA issuance scheme this year stands at IDR750 billion at maximum which will be issued by PT Bank Ta-bungan Negara Tbk.

Analyst of corporate bond market of PT Trimegah Securities Tbk Octavianus Bramantya said bond issuance this year is to increase following the drop of government bond (SUN) yield.

SUN usually serves as the standard for corporate bond coupon. The smaller the coupon, the lower coupon paid by the bond issuer company.

"The fund flow from stock market mostly come into SUN so it becomes one of the factors for the bond coupon drop which is marketed. But the fund generated from stock market is indirectly coming into corporate bond market," he said yesterday.

The fluctuating stock market condition has encouraged investors to rest their fund for government bond. Besides, the betterment of Indonesia debt rating prospect given by some international rating firms made SUN lucrative.

President Director of PT Pemeringkat Efek Indonesia (Pefindo) Ronald Andi Kasim predicted this year the ecorproate bond issuance has bigger potential than that of last year.

"With oversupplied liquidity market condition, the option for bond issuance is still lucrative up to end of the year," said Ronald.

Rating director of Pefindo Salyadi Saputra admitted the company revised the projection of bond issuance value this year.

"But, the problem is that the larger size has been issued in semester I/2010. The remaining middle size is to be issued in semester II/2010. But bigger size potential still remains," he said.

Pefindo projected the corporate bond issuance this year is about IDR20 trillion. But considering the progress, Salyadi is optimistic corporate bond issuance could reach DIR25 trillion.

"The projection of semester II/2010 might be about IDR10 trillion. Six emitters are rated at IDR4 trillion by Pefindo. Until mid June 2010, the bonds stood at IDR16 trillion," he added.

Director of PT Sarana Mul-ti-giriya Finansial (SMF) Sutomo added the capital from stock market switched to the corporate bonds which have less risk, such as those issued by the state firm.

"They are likely to enter to SUN or state firms bonds due to the less risk."

This is reflected from the investors interest to bond III/2010 offering. The bond offer gets more than IDR1 trillion bond demand from earlier target of IDR800 billion.

The exceeding demand has made the company to set bond coupon at the level of 9.25 percent for tranch A and 9.75 percent for tranche B. (Bisnis/iaa/10/pul)

BEI Delays Realization of Stock Option Contract Again

Irvin Avriano A.
Bisnis Indonesia

JAKARTA: Indonesia Stock Exchange (BEI) promises to realize stock option contract (KOS) next year since it needs to synergize its trading in a new bourse machine system, JATS NEXT-G.

"Therefore, the stock option contract seems to only be realized at the yearend and be practiced next year," said Director of Trading and Bourse Member Arrangement at BEI Wan Wei Yiong to Bisnis in Jakarta last weekend.

With the decision, the derivative securities transaction would be delayed from the previous target of 2008. The launch of the derivative securities transaction has been delayed several times, even since the terms of service of the old board of directors.

Derivative securities are derivative products with major securities commonly called underlying assets, which can take a form of stock or debt securities. The transactions are contracts or agreements whose values or returns depend on the performances of the underlying assets.

He explained another derivative securities trading, namely the LQ-45 future index would also fnd its system merged.

Wei Yiong denied rumor saying the delayed realization was attributable to lack of interests from securities companies in becoming the market makers.

Market maker or liquidity provider is regular trading facilitator and liquidity provider that puts sale and purchasing price routinely, creating certainty for the investment instrument transactions.

BEI previously run a simulation for KOS and future index trading on its official website as part of socialization measure. The simulation attracts 1,500 visitors within three trial months since it as launched earlier last year.

Last year, BEI delayed the derivative transaction schedule from April due to the lack of preparation from the derivative trading system of bourse members.

Of 34 bourse members interested in becoming derivative market players, only five members, such as PT Universal Broker, PT Pacific 2000, and PT Sucorinvest Central Gani, have been ready with the systems. Of the 24 bourse members, only 17 express their readiness to become market makers.

The delay is made since bourse members still focus on the new stock trading system, JATS NEXT-G. Lack of capital is another factor.

In making investments, investors can take advantage of KOS as a hedging instrument when stock prices drop. (Bisnis/iaa)

JAKARTA: Mining contractor PT Darma Henwa Plc (Tbk) gets approval from the creditors to continue with their cooperation with PT Bukit Makmur Mandiri Utama (Buma).

The project is worth a total US$1.8 billion with the term of contract running from 2004 to 2014.

"We have got approval from the creditors. The project only needs to wait for documentation finalization, which is expected to start in the third quarter of 2010," informed Corporate Secretary of Darma Henwa Wiria Widodo in Jakarta last weekend.

The partnership contract of the Bakrie group-affiliated company covers the company's subcontractor's contract in the coal mining location of PT Kaltim Prima Coal, a subsidiary of another Bakrie Group-owned subsidiary PT Bumi Resources Plc, in Bengalon, East Kalimantan.

Darma Henwa's financial statement showed the company owed two banks, UOB and ABN Amro Bank NV, US$120 million last year. Previously, the banks permitted Darma Henwa to conduct rights issue earlier this year.

Some of the IDR624 billion funds raised by the company from the rights issue have been used to service liabilities, reducing the amount of debt to US$75 million.

Wiria explained the company still hoped for new contractor projects this year, but it would still focus on the Bumi Resources project in Bengalon and another project in Asam in the Regency of Laut, South Kalimantan, owned by PT Arutmin Indonesia.

He added the company was optimistic the company's production volume could incease this year, bolstering net profit this year.

However, he could not yet explain the targets set by the company this year as well as measures the company would take to minimize its loss.

Last year, the company booked US$201.46 million in total revenues and US$1.84 million in net loss. In the first quarter of 2010, the company booked US$44.78 million in revenues and US$3.49 million in net loss.

He said the company now is facing fluctuation of rupiah and US dollar currencies, competition with China material products, ACFTA challenges, and the soaring electricity basic tarrift.

Sugi Hadi said the company has got approval from the shareholders not to share dividend to the investors as the company still suffers from cumulative losses despite the recorded IDR30.67 billion net profits last year.

"We cannot share dividend yet because cumulatively we are still loss and this goes in line with the Limited Corporation regulation," he added. (Bisnis/iaa)
