PT Mitra Pinasthika Mustika Tbk (IDX Ticker: MPMX, the “Company”), Indonesia’s smart mobility company today announced its financial results for the first half ended 30th June  2018.
For the first half of 2018, the Company posted consolidated net profit (NPATMI) of Rp4.2 trillion and reported net revenue of Rp7.5 trillion, an increase of 7% compared to Rp7.0 trillion in the first half of 2017. The growth was mostly driven by the Company’s solid performance in the Distribution and Retail segment, where the nationwide motorcycle sales have seen encouraging sign of recovery in the first half of the year.
Meanwhile, the Company posted Rp219 billion Core Earnings (NPATMI excluding one-time and non-recurring profit and loss items and derivative MTM adjustment) or up 10% from the first half of 2017. The Distribution and Retail segment exhibited strong growth together with our businesses in Finance and Insurance segment. The Company’s cash position and leverage ratio is further strengthened due to the strategic divestment transaction.  The results are the indication of the Company’s focus on improving key financial levers while maintaining business growth.
As of 28th of June, FKT was officially de-consolidated from MPMX’s financial statement. The revenue of FKT will no longer be consolidated into the group’s overall numbers while the profit from the first half of 2018 will be recorded under “discontinued operation” in the P&L statement.
MPMX’s Group Chief Executive Officer Rudy Halim said, “We are pleased to see the overall earnings result of MPMX for the first half of the year. Aside from the successful divestment, the existing core businesses have performed well and our digital initiatives have shown encouraging sign of tractions. The divestment proceeds has strengthened the balance sheet and also allows us to strengthen and grow the existing businesses and operations of MPMX and invest in new faster growth areas of mobility that will ensure at least 10% YOY growth in the group’s EBITDA as a whole from 2019 onwards, so that it can deliver returns to shareholders in the form of superior dividend yield in a consistent manner.”
Subsidiaries Performance
In two-wheeler distribution and retail business, MPMX through its subsidiary MPMulia successfully retained its position as the market leader by recording 427,170 units of 2W in sales, representing a 5% increase from the same period last year. Due to the strong growth, MPMulia’s revenue saw a positive growth of 11% revenue to Rp6,392 billion and Net Profit 17% to Rp170 billion compared to the same period last year. 
On June 28th MPMX announced the successful completion of a strategic divestment of the 100% stake in its lubricant business subsidiary, PT Federal Karyatama (“FKT”) to Esso Petroleum Company Limited and ExxonMobil UK Limited (“ExxonMobil”) for a total consideration of US$436 million (Four Hundred Thirty Six Million US Dollar). During the first half of the year the lubricant business has recorded sales volume 27 million liters of lubricant, or 9% lower compared to the same period last year. This result was mainly driven by the less working days in June due to the holidays season and the fact that the business was de-consolidated from MPMX since June 28th. Revenue and Net Profit were dampened by 6% to Rp754 billion and 10% to Rp123 billion respectively.
