The Synergy
to Move Forward

Dear valued partners,

The year 2017 continues to present us with challenges and hope, though coal price index has risen quite significantly at the end of 2016. We are grateful to be able to pass through 2017 with good result, and at the same time continuously performing a variety of internal consolidations to sustain our corporate growth and prepare cautiously to enter the coming year with full of optimism.

Ending the year 2017, we are proud to say that we have continued to uphold our CG process and acknowledged to receive several recognitions as “Best Responsibility of the Board” at IICD CG Appreciation Night in April, “The Best of CG Overall” at  9th IICD Award in November, “Best Tbk Private Company” at IGCGA Award 2017 in November,  “4th Best Human Capital” in the category of Public Company  at IHC Award III/2017, as well as receiving “Platinum Award” at ISDA Award 2017. Indeed, another year full of blessing. 

Welcoming the New Year, Indonesia’s GDP growth is projected to increase at 5.4%; hence we believe that 2018 will present more opportunities for ABM Group. Our initiatives have yielded improvement and positive results, including the revamping and streamlining of the business, particularly in terms of continuing business efficiency and effectiveness while raising productivity. We believe all our continuous effort in strengthening the company’s foundation to aid growth in an increasingly competitive business environment will help us strive and win the competition. Internal consolidation continues to be conducted to realize ABM Group’s operational excellence that supports the company’s improved strategic capabilities.

However, a note that we have to also put into consideration is the fact that 2018 is going to be a transition period before we enter the election year in 2019. This would impose a challenge that we need to carefully manage. Hence we should expect a more wait and see attitude from both business and individual sides.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation and gratitude to all shareholders, Board of Commissioners, business partners, suppliers, customers, employees, and other ABM Group stakeholders for the support and trust throughout 2017, which enabled us to survive the challenging year and welcoming 2018 with confidence. We will uphold our commitment in the pursuit of progress and growth to provide you with the best services.

ABM welcomes 2018 with a high optimism though cautiously approached. We are aware that the uncertain prices of global commodities, especially coal, will remain as one of the major challenges we need to face in the years ahead.  Therefore, ABM Group remains committed to provide the best services with a fighting spirit and focus that will allow us to triumph against all difficulties and challenges that may come our way.

Best regards,
Andi Djajanegara
President Director
