Average Profitability at Indonesian State-Owned Contractor

Watch the video with Andrew Stotz or read a summary of the World Class Benchmarking on PT PP (Persero) Tbk.



Background

PT PP (Persero) Tbk (PTPP), established in 1961, is an Indonesian state-owned enterprise mainly operating in five segments: Construction; EPC; Property; Precast and Equipment. The company also invests in power plants and infrastructure but saw no revenue from such enterprises in 2016.

Business Description

The main revenue contributor is public construction services building high-rise buildings, roads and bridges, dams and irrigation and power plants. Growth in this segment should be stimulated by the government’s infrastructure spending policies.

About 80% of PTPP’s projects in 2016 and planned in 2017 are for the government or other state-owned enterprises.

EPC projects for public and private customers focus on power plants, oil & gas, and mining.

Its property development subsidiary, PT PP Properti Tbk (PPRO IJ), focuses on mid-priced high-rise buildings in suburban areas and was listed in May 2015. Rights issue was finalized in April 2017 and PTPP fully subscribed at a relatively rich valuation of PPRO’s shares.

PTPP also has three subsidiaries engaged in precast concrete manufacturing, construction equipment and power plant construction. The company plans IPOs for two or three of the above subsidiaries in 2H17 offering 20-35% of shares to the public, which could unlock some value.
