The company’s total revenue was up 55% to Rp 3.7 trillion, which contributed up to a 31% rise in its gross profit to Rp 373 billion. Primarily contributed by the growth and performance of its oil refinery business.

PT Saratoga Investama Sedaya Tbk’s President Director Sandiaga S. Uno said, “We are proud that in the midst of higher market volatility coupled with slower economic growth and outflowing liquidity in the second and third quarter of 2013, Saratoga still managed to book positive growth and additional investments. This highlights the resilience of our business model.”

Sandiaga added that the company’s solid and sustainable business growth is reflected in the performances of investee companies, particularly in the sectors of consumer products and services, as well as infrastructure. Meanwhile, the natural resources sector, particularly integrated coal, mining and palm oil managed to book steady growth despite the challenging situation impacted by global sentiments.

In 2013, Saratoga rebalanced its portfolios by adding more investments in the consumer and infrastructure sectors. As a result, the composition of its investments in natural resources decreased from 61% to 51%, while investments in the consumer and infrastructure sectors increased from 39% to 49%.

“The rebalancing of Saratoga’s investment portfolio to the consumer products and services sector is aligned with higher consumption that contributes to Indonesia’s economic growth. We are optimistic that the strategy developed by the company will ensure consistent and sustainable growth of Saratoga’s performance in the long term,” explained Sandiaga.

Having said this, Sandiaga continued, “The consumption sector will not be able to achieve sustainable growth unless supported by solid infrastructure growth. Therefore, it is important for Saratoga to safeguard pillars in the infrastructure business that bolsters development in other key sectors that drive Indonesia’s economic growth.”

Saratoga Investama Sedaya Chief Financial Officer Jerry Ngo said that the sustained business growth of investee companies throughout 2013 demonstrates the robustness of Saratoga’s investment portfolio and the resilience of its business model. This is particularly evident in the improving performance of several investee companies which we have been actively supporting to expand through solid organic and inorganic growth strategies.

Saratoga in 2014 will continue to make disciplined investments in businesses the Company believes to pose strong growth potential, while targeting US$100-US150 million worth of new investments in the same year.

Saratoga’s investment focus in 2014 will continue to be in consumer products & services, infrastructure and natural resources. To further strengthen investee companies’ growth momentum Saratoga in the next two to three years plans to undertake IPOs for several of its investee companies, particularly in natural resources including mineral resources, oil and gas,as well as in the infrastructure sector, such as the power plant business.

“The power plant business is a prospective one for future development, considering that only around 70% of Indonesians have access to electricity,” added Jerry.
