In addition to the changes of management, the GMS also agreed to the change of plan to use the remaining proceeds from the Rights Issue I of Rp 50 billion. Initially the fund was allocated for business development but then converted into operational working capital to support coal mine operation in South Sumatra. The reason was, at the end of 2015, an SMMT subsidiary, PT Triaryani, obtain logistic infrastructure such as hauling road and port that provide opportunities to increase production capacity and consistency throughout the year.
Roza Permana Putra, President Director of PT Golden Eagle Energy Tbk, explained Triaryani require additional working capital to accelerate the increase in production to optimize the supply lines. “Increased production and focus on existing operations will contribute more value to stakeholders compared to business development, as current condition of the coal industry is still weak,” said Roza.
Weakening export coal market pushed the company to focus on sales in the domestic market. As a result, domestic coal sales volume increased rapidly to 400 thousand tons in 2015 compared to 2014 amounted to 204 thousand tons. The achievement is a way of preparation for the company to support the increasing domestic coal demand as a number of new coal-fired power plants through the program of 35,000 MW begin its operation.
Throughout 2015, Roza added, Triaryani managed to increase its revenues from coal sales by 222% to Rp28,8 billion, or jumped from the previous year’s sales amounting to Rp8.9 billion. Another subsidiary, PT International Prima Coal (IPC) was still recorded a positive operating margin for the company “, said Roza.
