Kapuas Prima Coal (ZINC) Intensify Production of First Lead Smelter in Indonesia
PT Kapuas Prima Coal Tbk ( ZINC ), a listed base metal producer in Indonesia, continues to intensify lead smelter production, which has been trialled since early 2022. This is one of ZINC's efforts to support the mineral downstream process set by the Government.Previously, the Government had started to implement export ban regulations for certain mineral commodities that did not meet the purification level. Therefore, business actors in the mining sector are required to immediately complete the smelter project within the given time limit in order to continue to receive an export quota.ZINC as one of the issuers that produces metallic minerals ranging from lead, zinc and iron ore, continues to carry out various efforts to realize the regulations made by the Government. Where, ZINC has completed the construction of one of the smelters, namely the lead smelter, and has started commercial operations in early June 2022.In addition, ZINC is currently pursuing the completion of a zinc smelter which is targeted to be completed in the second quarter of 2023. Evelyn Kioe, as Director of ZINC, expressed her gratitude because this year she was able to complete one of the lead smelters in Central Kalimantan."Despite being constrained by Covid-19, at the beginning of this year we finally started to test production and in May 2022, the lead smelter has been verified 100% by PT Surveyor Indonesia and PT Kapuas Prima Citra officially operating commercially. As the first lead smelter and the only one in Indonesia, we target this year the lead smelter can produce up to 8,000 tons of lead bullion (Pb), with a sales target of the smelter reaching USD 29 million," he said in an official statement received by Kontan, Friday (10/6).Meanwhile, for the ZINC zinc smelter, currently the construction process has reached around 85%. Later, the smelter is targeted to produce up to 30,000 tons of ingots per year. The existence of the Company's zinc smelter is expected to help meet the demand for zinc commodities in the country, where until now this commodity is still 100% imported.On the other hand, until the first quarter of 2022, ZINC recorded sales of Rp. 204.5 billion. ZINC's revenue in the first quarter of 2022 was still dominated by sales of zinc (Zn) commodities with a contribution of IDR 95.1 billion, while sales of lead (Pb) commodities reached IDR 31.6 billion. ZINC's revenue also came from sales of silver commodities amounting to Rp39.2 billion, as well as sales of iron concentrate which was recorded at Rp38.6 billion."We are optimistic that, with the economy starting to recover and Covid-19 increasingly under control, ZINC can continue its good performance growth until the end of 2022. Supported by commodity prices that are still stable, we are optimistic that we can achieve our sales target of up to IDR 1.2 trillion by 2020. 2022," Evelyne concluded.Source:

Mitrabara (MBAP) Ready to Deposit IDR 641.8 Billion
Dividend season has arrived. Not to forget, PT Mitrabara Adiperdana Tbk (MBAP) will also distribute cash dividends worth a total of Rp 641.86 billion or Rp 523 per share. This was approved at the company's Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGMS), Tuesday (7/6/2022)."The AGM approved the use of the company's net profit obtained in 2021. Approved or ratified the distribution of dividends that had been carried out on October 15, 2021. Approved the plan to provide cash dividends for the financial year ending December 31, 2021," explained the Corporate Secretary Mitrabara Adiperdana Chandra Lautan to Investor Daily , Tuesday (7/6/2022).Throughout 2021, Mitrabara generated a net profit of US$ 100.56 million, up 266% compared to the previous year which was US$ 27.46 million. This profit came from revenues of US$ 309.84 million last year, which rose 53.99% from the previous year which was US$ 201.21 million.The operating profit margin in 2021 will reach 41.52%, an increase compared to 2020 which was 18.14%. Management explained that the increase was due to the Reference Coal Price (HBA) which reached US$ 215.01 per metric ton in November 2021, then closed at US$ 159.79 per metric ton in December 2021."The December 2021 HBA has increased by 167.88% compared to December 2020 which was at a position of US$ 59.65 per metric ton," explained the management.

The increase was still obtained by the company, even though during that period there was a ban on exports, to be precise in January 2022.This is because the sales target for MBAP in the first quarter of 2022 is dominated by domestic markets with a portion reaching 32%, followed by South Korea with 26% and China with 22%. Whereas in the previous year, the majority of MBAP sales were aimed at China up to 45%, followed by South Korea at 20%. Coal sales to Indonesia are only 6% throughout 2021.However, the sale of the majority of coal to the domestic market did not erode the company's revenue and profit because the HBA applicable in the country also increased. "HBA has increased since early 2022, recorded at US$ 158.5 per metric ton in January 2022 and then continued to increase to US$ 203.69 per metric ton in March 2022," Chandra explained.This year, MBAP plans to produce 3.75 million tons of coal, a slight decrease compared to the production realization in 2021 which was 3.91 million tons. MBAP Director Syadaruddin said, as of March 31, 2022, the company had produced around 1.01 million tons of coal. “Our sales are more or less the same as coal production. For the revenue and net profit targets, considering that the price of coal is a commodity whose price is influenced by the market, the company has not been able to provide this information," said Chandra.
