Result highlights

Achieving an EBITDA of Rp 950 billion and a net income of Rp 687 billion in the first nine months of 2016 is a significant turnaround from 2015, and also marks the continued success of the company in diversifying and improving its product range to support end user customers in Indonesia’s fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector, alongside packaging fabricators. Improved prices have driven the sales growth with new lighter grammage papers now contributing about 30% of total revenues while existing lines also performed well. The ninemonth results indicate a sustained improvement in profitability.

Paper Machine (PM8) project progress

The company is on track to commence the commercial production from its new PM8 paper machine, adding 350,000 tons to boost total manufacturing capacity to 1,550,000 tons per annum. PM8 will be dedicated to lighter paper production in order to meet rising demand.

Consumer goods driven growth

More than 90% of the company’s products are being sold to top multinational FMCG companies, such as Indofood, Unilever, Aqua-Danone, Wings, Mayora to name a few. Increases in demand growth in the FMCG sector are typically followed by a demand growth for packaging papers.

Currently, some of the company’s products are being sold directly to leading local and multinational companies, including Indofood, Unilever, Aqua-Danone, and Wings.

President Director Yustinus Kusumah noted, “This result validates the optimistic outlook we maintained at the beginning of the year, and it endorses our decisions last year to continue to invest in new products and additional capacity.”
