The decline was still affected by the IMNV, a shrimp virus, problem that occurs in their ponds.
In the disclosure to Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX/PT Bursa Efek Indonesia) today, the management company explained that revenue projection is based on the four main factors.
First, the speed of the Lampung-based company to fix IMNV viruses which have suffered in the company's ponds since 2009. Second, the continuation of the pond recovery and areas infected with the virus.
Third, the needs for the utilization of operating cash flow to fulfill the requirements from company's working capital lenders. Fourth, timing and amount of funding available for plasma farmers, capital expenditures, and general usage of corporate funds.
CP Prima Director Gunawan Taslim says the company also has three factors of uncertainty are likely to continue. First, the speed improvement and expansion of IMNV viral contamination in the PT Central Pertiwi Bahari ponds.
