Bank Rakyat Indonesia:  Stay micro, stay profitable (NOT RATED)

BBRI’s FY19 net profits of IDR34.4tn are inline with the consensus (99.0% of FY19F). Loans growth was on the soft side at 8.4% yoy with higher micro lending exposure of 35.8% of the total loans portfolio as of December 2019. NIM, however, normalised to 6.7% due to an uptick in the blended CoF by c.30bps on a yoy basis. Meanwhile, the gross NPLs ratio could be maintained at 2.6% with 257bps credit costs. Going forward, BBRI’s management will continue to focus on its micro lending business with KUR and Kupedes as its core products. As such, BBRI’s management targets 40% micro lending exposure to the total loans book by the end of 2022.

MACROECONOMY

Bank Indonesia kept its 5% policy rate unchanged in Jan-20

In the beginning of 2020, Bank Indonesia maintained its 5% policy rate (7DRRR). Rate cut transmission has taken place since June 2019: a 52 bps decrease in the deposit interest rate to 6.31%, and a 33 bps decrease in the working capital credit interest rate to 10.09% as of end-2019. According to BI, Indonesia has passed the lowest point in the economic cycle. As such, BI still maintained its 5.1-5.5% economic growth projection for 2020 and raised its global economic growth forecast to 3.2%. Despite the better economic outlook for 2020, BI is still committed to pursuing accommodative policies in 2020. (Kontan, Investor Daily)

Government allocates IDR27.4tn of infra financing through sharia bonds

The allocation of infra project financing through sharia government bonds declined in 2020 to IDR27.4tn from IDR28.3tn previously. This condition is different from previous years, as the trend of infra financing through sharia government bonds always increased yoy. The Ministry of Finance stated that the reduction reflects the fact that the government will not provide an allocation to ministries and institutions that cannot accomplish projects financed through sharia government bonds. This may be as a result of failed tenders, performance problems and contractor difficulties, and a change in project leaders. (Kontan)

SECTOR

Plantation: FFB price +7.9% vs December 2019

West Kalimantan FFB Price has increased +7.9% from a 2nd auction of Decemcer 2019 to IDR1,784/kg on average or some 50.7% yoy. South Sumatera FFB has also breached IDR2,022/kg or (+8% from previous auction) Applying our target of MYR2,600/ton average CPO price and USD50 means the FFB would be at IDR1,692/kg, which in-terms will elevate farmers income. (Investor Daily)

Comment: As we mentioned the farmers income elevation will add purchasing power in Kalimantan and Sumatera and should provide some benefit to GGRM, RALS, TLKM, and ASII to some extent (Andreas Kenny)

CORPORATE

PGN’s subsidiary called to pay for tax underpayments of Rp127.72mn

Based on the 28 Oct 2019 Supreme court decision and note sent to the Saka Energi subsidiary of PGN (PGAS IJ) in Jan. 2020, Saka has to pay USD127.72mn and a penalty for underpaid tax related to the 2014 acquisition field in Pangkah. PGN won its appeal taken place in Nov. 2018. However, the Supreme Court reevaluated the case in favor of the Director General of Taxes and thus SAKA must pay underpaid tax. PGN and SAKA made a new appeal to ask for tax leniency from Dirjen Pajak while it is taking the seller of the Pangkah block to international arbitration to seek tax indemnity. (The Company)

Smartfren secures a new loan facility of Rp3.11tn – expecting a heated sector in 2020

Smartfren through its subsidiary Smartel has entered into a loan facility agreement with the China Bank of Development Shenzen Branch on 21 Jan 2021 with the amount of RMB1.58bn or ~Rp3.11tn for a period of 6 years. Smartfren signed a corporate guarantee offered to China Bank of Development Shenzen Branch on 21 Jan 2021, on behalf of its subsidiary Smartel towards fulfilling the facility requirements. The borrowings will be for used network capex spending. (The Company)

Comment: Smartfren’s 9M19 net debt currently is ~Rp7.1tn meeting its Debt / asset ratio 67% covenant, while it needs to meet its debt service coverage ratio of a minimum of 1.5x. We expect the company to gradually draw down the facility to serve its liquidity and capex needs. The capex-to-sales ratio has been trending consistently over 50% (probably the highest in the sector), and the new facility will help the Company to maintain high capex spending. Essentially FREN continues to frontload investments with a view to monetize in the later quarters. We see ample improvement in Smartfren’s EBITDA (Rp982bn in 9M19). Nonetheless, the operating losses were Rp1.76tn. We predict a heated 2020 for the telco sector as contender operators are getting funded, with Smartfren being the latest case. We still predict sector growth in 2020 to be no greater than in 2019. (Niko Margaronis)
