Gencarnya ekspansi yang dilakukan AGII pun berdampak pada pendanaan perusahaan. Hingga akhir Juni lalu, sisa dana hasil initial public offering (IPO) AGII sebesar RP 168,65 miliar.

Nah, sepanjang sembilan bulan, perusahaan sudah menggunakan dana IPO Rp 642,67 miliar. Di mana alokasinya untuk, pertama, pembayaran pinjaman entitas AGII Rp 324,53 miliar.

Kedua, modal kerja sebesar Rp 162,15 miliar dan terakhir, sebesar Rp 155,99 untuk investasi. Investasi yang dimaksud adalah pembelian gas plant atau filling station, serta peremajaan pabrik dan peningkatan sarana serta prasarana distribusi AGII sebesar Rp 113,24 miliar.

IFC Purchases Shares Worth $11 Million in Aneka Gas Industri


IFC Purchases Shares Worth $11 Million in Aneka Gas Industri to Support Development of Industrial Gas Plants in Indonesia Jakarta. The International Finance Corporation, the World Bank's financing arm for the private sector, has bought shares worth $11 million (Rp 143 billion), or equivalent to a 5.8 percent stake in Aneka Gas Industri, Indonesia's largest supplier of industrial gas, via an initial public offering.

IFC’s investment will support the development of the company’s new industrial gas plants and distribution facilities in Indonesia in Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Bali and West Nusa Tenggara. Aneka Gas is officially listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) on Sept. 28. The company raised Rp 843 billion, lower than its initial IPO target of Rp 989 billion, and will use proceeds derived to expand its business and working capital and repay outstanding debts.

Aneka Gas expects to have 200 filling stations in 35 provinces by 2020. It now has 80 filling stations in 22 provinces.

“As the only industrial gas player with a nationwide distribution network, Aneka Gas is competitively positioned to take advantage of the growing demand throughout Indonesia, especially in underdeveloped provinces,” Aneka Gas executive vice president, Rachmat Harsono, said.

Aneka Gas claims to control 30 percent of the country’s business sector. It also dominates the healthcare market controlling 75 percent of the industry by supplying gas for medical purposes and related equipment to hospitals and health care facilities.

“Businesses supporting consumer and small and medium-sized enterprises, [or SMEs], are key drivers of job creation and growth for the economy, particularly in less developed frontier regions,” IFC’s country manager for Indonesia, Azam Khan, said in a statement on Wednesday (05/10).

Aneka Gas is the part of Samator Group established in 1975 in Surabaya, East Java. The company produces and distributes gases — ranging from oxygen, nitrogen and rare gas like xenon to fuel natural gas — widely used in a range of sectors including healthcare, construction, metallurgy, petrochemical and electronics.

IFC was established in Indonesia in 1968 and provided funds over $6.6 billion to finance private sector projects in the country over the past 47 years.

One of its biggest financing projects involved syndicated loans of more than $500 million last year to a chemical manufacturing company, Panca Amara Utama, for the development of an ammonia plant on Sulawesi island.

IFC also provides advisory services to the government and businesses on various projects in Indonesia, focused on promoting sustainable urbanization in Indonesia, reducing the impact of climate change and increasing income for rural citizens.

AGI rides high on govt’s infrastructure development


Industrial gas producer Aneka Gas Industri (AGI) aims to benefit from the government’s efforts to boost infrastructure development nationwide by supplying gas to at least eight industrial sectors and developing hundreds of filling stations across the country following its initial public offering (IPO).

“Within the past three years, we have been expanding our business in accordance with the government’s effort to boost national development,” AGI vice president director Rachmat Harsono said in Jakarta recently.

“It’s still going to be the same, as we will keep serving eight industrial sectors by supplying various types of gases, like oxygen and nitrogen.”

AGI — a subsidiary of the diversified Samator Group that produces atmospheric gases, fuel gases and synthetic gases — has seen surging demand from various sectors recently, including transportation, construction and agriculture.

The development of basic infrastructure facilities has become one of the government’s top priorities to resolve the country’s inefficient logistics system and acute distribution bottlenecks that have seriously hampered economic development.

Earlier this year, the government issued two legal bases to expedite 225 projects listed as “national strategic projects” and a mega power plant project.

They comprise 225 projects across 13 sectors, such as railways and toll roads. The projects will receive special backing and attention from the government, as stipulated by a presidential regulation.

Rachmat said 36 percent of AGI’s revenue came from sales of its packaged gases, while 21 percent from the medical sector, 20 percent from the consumer goods sector, 14 percent from the infrastructure sector and the rest from other manufacturing sectors.

“Nitrogen is used to produce a high-grade precast concrete used for constructing tunnels, bridges and even the MRT [mass rapid transit] system. Meanwhile, oxygen can be used for combustion systems in smelters and also to produce steel,” Rachmat said.

Data from publicly listed concrete maker Waskita Beton Precast (WSBP) shows that the national demand for concrete is around 20 million to 25 million tons per year.

Moreover, Rachmat claimed that 80 percent of all hospitals across the country had ordered AGI’s oxygen products. The company also supplies carbon dioxide for carbonated drinks and nitrogen for snack packages.

AGI was officially listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange’s (IDX) trading board on Wednesday, pocketing Rp 830 billion (US$64.08 million) in IPO proceeds, lower than the initial target of Rp 989 billion.

It has allocated 40 percent of the funds to pay internal debt, with another 40 percent for expansion and the remaining 20 percent for working capital. The expansion is aimed at increasing the number of its filling stations to 200 units by 2020 from 80 at present.

AGI currently operates 44 plants in 80 cities across 22 provinces and claims a 30 percent market share in the industry. It aims to book Rp 1.68 trillion in revenue this year, a 20 percent increase from Rp 1.4 trillion in 2015.

After the share sale, Samator group retains a 70 percent ownership of AGI. Aside from the gas business, the group controls several other companies in the real estate, automotive, chemical industry and financial services sectors.

Air Battle in Indonesia


Industrial gas has a promising outlook. Who doesn't need gas?

Oxygen is needed by hospitals to take care sick people, nitrogen keeps your chips crisp till you tear the bag, car makers use acetylene for welding, and so on. As the economy grows, demand for industrial gases rises. Despite being the biggest player in the industry, the Samator group is innovating to maintain its leadership.

Through its wholly owned companies, PT Samator and PT Aneka Gas Industri, it now holds almost 50% of the market with estimated sales of almost Rp 2 trillion combined. His two closest competitors are multinational firms, France’s Air Liquide and Germany’s Linde group. “Competition is getting tougher and tougher,” says Rachmat Harsono, executive vice president of corporate finance and strategic planning for Samator, who is the son of Arief Harsono, the group’s founder. Samator group started in 1975. Its name comes from the name of the capital of East Kalimantan, Samarinda, and Toraja, an area in South Sulawesi. Arief had the idea to start the company while traveling between these two places.

Industrial gases are made using processes that are complex and capital intensive, and require highly skilled staff, thus making barriers to entry high for new players. Rachmat says some producers have recently dropped prices to gain market share. “The latest technology is more efficient, so costs can be lowered. But we rely heavily on electricity and electricity prices have increased. So when the price of industrial gasses is going down in the market, it is actually not healthy for the industry,” Rachmat says.
