ABM Pays 25 Percent Dividend from 2012 Net Profit
Jakarta, May 30, 2013 – PT ABM Investama (IDX: “ABMM”), an integrated energy company, today holds its Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGMS) for the 2012 fiscal year. During the AGMS, the company secured approval for the Annual Report 2012 including the company’s Activity Report, Supervisory Report of the Board of Commissioners and Validation of Financial Statements for the company for the year 2012. The company has also determined the use of net profit for the fiscal year through dividends, with shareholders permitting the company to pay dividend of 25 percent or more than US$3.4 million.
ABM President Director Andi Djajanegara explained, “Amid this challenging period for the industry, as a company that has received continuous support from our stakeholders, particularly investors, we feel very satisfied for being able to carry out our commitment to pay the dividends. Today, shareholders have agreed to pay 25 percent from the net profit as dividend and the rest as retained earning.”
ABM recorded positive operational performance in 2012, supported by the operational performance of its subsidiaries. Although net income had dwindled to US$13.64 million, the synergy of the subsidiaries’ performances had driven sales and revenue, raising gross profit to US$172.6 million. Consolidated revenue grew 17.7 percent to US$886.97 million compared to only US$753.83 million in 2011, proving the success of the company’s integration.
“Pressure in the coal industry created a chain reaction and in terms of mining caused the price of coal to drop while on the contractor side, caused higher operational costs and financial burden that led to lower net profit for ABM,” expressed Andi.
“In addition to the dividends, to support sustainability and maintain positive operational performance, the allocation of the net profit has been calculated to the fund company, for investment, expansion and operational purposes in 2013.
