Saratoga NAV Reached IDR 46.5 Trillion in Semester I-2021
Jakarta, July 29, 2021 – PT Saratoga Investama Sedaya Tbk (stock code: SRTG) reached a net asset value (NAV) of IDR 46.5 trillion in semester I-2021. This value increased from NAV at the end of 2020 of IDR 31.7 trillion. The company also recorded a net profit – attributed to owners of the parent entity – of IDR 15.3 trillion, compared to a net loss of IDR 2.1 trillion in semester I-2020.
Saratoga President Director Michael Soeryadjaya said that the success of our portfolio companies in maintaining a resilient performance in 2021 has increased the value of Saratoga’s portfolio. The positive performance is also accompanied by their consistent dividend distributions, which further strengthened Saratoga’s business fundamentals.
“The rising share price performance of our portfolio companies has supported Saratoga’s NAV growth during semester I-2021. This is proof that Saratoga’s portfolio companies are able to stay resilient during this pandemic,” said Michael, in an official statement in Jakarta, on Thursday (29/7).
Saratoga’s NAV growth in semester I-2021 was due to appreciation in share price of several portfolio companies; mainly contributed by PT Tower Bersama Infrastructure Tbk (stock code: TBIG), PT Merdeka Copper Gold Tbk (stock code: MDKA), PT Mitra Pinasthika Mustika Tbk (stock code: MPMX), and PT Provident Agro Tbk (stock code: PALM).
Saratoga also posted dividend income of IDR 866 billion in semester I-2021, an increase of 35.3 percent, from IDR 640 billion during the same period in the previous year. This dividend income is mainly contributed by PT Adaro Energy Tbk (ADRO), TBIG, and MPMX.
Michael added that Saratoga will continue to implement a diversification strategy in deploying investments and disciplined financial management to maintain long-term business sustainability. Debt and cost ratios will continue to be managed and maintained at an efficient level. Currently, annualized operating costs to NAV is at 0.4 percent with loan to value at 5.7 percent.
Saratoga Investment Director Devin Wirawan explained that in semester I-2021, Saratoga continued to encourage portfolio companies to expand their business into new regions. For example, Primaya Hospital – under PT Famon Awal Bros Sedaya – has opened three new hospitals since the start of the year. The three hospitals were Primaya Hospital Bhakti Wara in Pangkal Pinang-Bangka Belitung, Primaya Hospital Sukabumi in West Java, and Primaya Hospital Pasar Kemis in Tangerang-Banten.
“The launch of these three new hospitals adds to Primaya Hospital’s existing operational assets, bringing them to 12 hospitals by end of semester I-2021. This expansion is also part of Saratoga’s initiative in supporting the government’s efforts to provide the best healthcare service amid the ongoing pandemic,” he said.
Devin also explained that one of Saratoga’s strategic portfolio companies, MDKA, has further strengthened its long-term business fundamentals. He revealed that the latest drilling test from the Tujuh Bukit Copper Project in Banyuwangi resulted in a significant intercept of copper and gold.
MDKA has also completed a feasibility study for the Acid, Iron, Metal (AIM) Project, which is projected to have a net present value (NPV) of IDR 5.8 trillion. The AIM Project is operated by Merdeka Tsingshan Indonesia (80 percent MDKA, 20 percent Tsingshan) and located in the Indonesia Morowali Industrial Park in Morowali Regency, Central Sulawesi. Construction has begun in quarter II-2021 and production is targeted to start in quarter II-2022.
Amid rising demand in the logistics sector, Devin said that Saratoga’s portfolio company, MGM Bosco Logistics, is currently constructing the second phase of its cold-storage facility in Bekasi. The new facility is expected to start operating in quarter IV-2021.
“Saratoga will continue to assist all of our portfolio companies in exploring new opportunities and growing their business value. We are also open to new investment opportunities, including in the technology sector, which is now growing rapidly in Indonesia,” Devin stated.
