Selected comparative highlights: Financial Results 2013 (audited) and 2012 (audited)
|Gross Profit Margin||34.6%||36.47%|
|Income from Operations||1,849||2,038|
Holcim sales revenue growth was sustained by increased prices, with volume broadly unchanged at 9.5 million tonnes, taking account of a lower level of economic growth in 2013, compared to the previous year, tightening credit conditions, and an increase in cement supply. Based on cement association data, the overall consumption of cement increased 5.5% to 58 million tonnes compared to increases of 14% in 2012 and 18% in 2011. The extra supply having been absorbed, demand for Holcim products increased towards the year-end and momentum has continued in 2014. New capacity at the company’s Tuban plant in East Java, coming on stream in two phases of 1.7 million tonnes each in 2014 and 2015 positions Holcim Indonesia in a very favourable position to capture future growth.
Eamon Ginley, President Director of Holcim Indonesia commented on the results, ‘This past year has been a transition period after a number of years of tight supply conditions. Holcim continued to operate at maximum capacity in 2013 and the additional 40% boost in production from the combination of Tuban 1 producing first cement in October 2013, and Tuban 2 due to commence early 2015, provides competitive advantages in low cost production and close proximity to customers. We are now starting to see the benefit, not only in completing our footprint for Java but also from timely investments in logistics and channel capacity for domestic markets as a whole.’
Specifically on Java, increased shipment by rail is already proving cost and time efficient in shortening the supply chain in the company’s largest market. The Holcim brand was further extended into Kalimantan and Sumatra in 2013. Investments included new warehousing, bulk cement silo capacity and a new packing plant, the latest supply hub being opened at Pontianak – Kalimantan during the year. These markets offer considerable potential from higher growth rates over the medium term in infrastructure and urban development.
New production records at both existing plants of Cilacap and Narogong were achieved. In addition, the ready mixed concrete operations at Holcim Indonesia scored a five-year record in delivering 2.32 million cubic metres of concrete to customers in 2013, an increase of almost 20% over the previous year. The high demand for concrete was from a wide range of projects including commercial buildings, heavy industry and infrastructure, a power station and the extension of Indonesia’s second largest airport near Surabaya, as well as key toll road projects. In support of a full order book, a new aggregates quarry was acquired and an additional investment programme is underway to expand the number and capacity of concrete plants in order to keep up with demand. Holcim Indonesia will further strengthen its offering of value adding and innovative products, services and solutions to its customers
The increase in total assets to Rp 14.89 trillion from Rp 12.17 trillion at year-end, reflected the first kiln line installation at Tuban, a further line in progress and investment in existing operations. The increase in net financial debt in 2013 has provided the funding necessary to support strategic goals, which include capacity expansion, supply chain and commercial excellence, improvements to resource management and a major new processing facility to be ready in 2014 for the company’s waste management operation.
Environmental and Social performance
Holcim Indonesia again received Gold and Green PROPER awards from the Ministry of the Environment and the Green Industry Award from the Ministry of Industry among a considerable number of awards for best practices. Substantial community programmes around all three plants continued, with particular successes in livestock rearing for local farm communities near Tuban and the extension of Posdaya community centres around Narogong and Cilacap, helping communities with healthcare, education and livelihood skills.
In the current year, demand for Holcim building materials and the portfolio of value added services and specialist products remain excellent. Management views the forthcoming elections as a considerable opportunity for continued resurgence in business sentiment and further investment to leverage Indonesia’s strong fundamentals and achieve long term economic growth targets.
