Result highlights – strong export boost revenue

Domestic sales improved considerably in the third quarter by around 50% more than second quarter, reflecting the shift in timing of the Lebaran holidays year to year. In addition to that we are also benefiting from an upturn in export sales going to China, starting in September 2017. Both conditions have resulted our net income to increase by almost triple, while our gross profit and EBITDA have increased by 65% and 50%, respectively.

Net sales are substantially higher, bringing total revenue for the period of Rp 4,913 billion, compared to the same period a year ago, contributed by higher average selling prices, higher sales volume, and export sales opportunity .

A restriction on waste paper imports in China has contributed to waste paper shortage, and significantly increasing China’s domestic waste paper costs, thus in the end, doubling the price for containerboards in the region.

The completion of a new paper machine (PM8) in June is in line with the current opportunity of export sales to China. The Company’s strategic decision to move into lighter weight papers, both corrugated medium paper and kraft-liner board, is also in line with the continued increase of the new products range demand, of which now accounts for more than 50% of the Company’s total sales. The new capacity from PM8 is fully available and committed for both domestic as well as regional export demands.

Net income has decreased to Rp 286 billion, or Rp 115 per share, primarily due to one-off gains on foreign exchange which has occured in 2016.

Demand for packaging paper is expected to grow steadily as the domestic economic outlook improves. In addition to that, the rapid development of e-commerce and online shopping are driving the changes in consumption and logistics fundamentals, for the benefit of the packaging paper industry.

FajarPaper is well positioned for the future, firstly from market acceptance of the light weight papers,  and secondly from the online retail growth, projected at around 18% annually, as published in recent article by Bisnis Indonesia, with source coming from
