The Synergy
to Move Forward

Dear valued partners,

2018 was a blessing year for all of us with all the challenges and hope. Although coal price index has been quite stable throughout most of 2018 but it has weakened towards the end of the year. Nevertheless, our productivity and profitability has improved better than last year. During the year, we have also continued to uphold our Corporate Governance discipline and acknowledged to receive some prestigious awards namely: Enterprise Risk Management Award, Top 5 Best Coal Mining Company, Good Corporate Secretary & Communication Award, and Top CSR in many categories from Top Business, KNKG, and Indonesia CSR Society.

Of course, there’s still a lot of work ahead. The ongoing trade war between the US and China, the uncertain prices of global commodities, especially coal, will remain as one of the major challenges as we must prepare and ready for the worst to maintain the sustainability of our business. I have consistently said the solution lies in the synergy among the subsidiaries of ABM and even Tiara Marga Trakindo Group. The purpose of this synergy is to enhance ABM Investama as a coal supply chain company and as an integrated solution for our customers.

With a presidential election of slated for in April 2019, there is more or less influence the stability of a country’s economy, which can lead to some extend business uncertainty in Indonesia. During the election, consumers and business people tend to have ‘wait and see attitude’ before making any strategic decisions.

ABM welcomes 2019 with an optimism though cautiously approached. VUCA is the new norm. But no matter what the conditions are, we keep on working together and always try hard to give excellent services through synergy among our subsidiaries. Let’s turn the threat into opportunity in a great spirit of the challenge, and make ABM Investama grow profitably together with our stakeholders.

On behalf of the ABM Investama Board, I would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to all of our stakeholders for the support and trust throughout 2018 and best wishes for a wonderful and prosperous year. Happy new year!

President Director
