JAKARTA, October 31, 2019 – PT Aneka Gas Industri, Tbk (Bloomberg Stock Code: AGII IJ) announced its 9M19 unaudited financial statements whereby net profit attributable to parent entity 9M19 remained relatively stable at IDR73.5 bn compared to the same period in the previous year. Nonetheless, the Company notably booked a 10.5% YoY sales growth and looks to be on track to achieve our full year sales growth target.

Some of the key highlights of AGII’s 9M19 financial performance are as follows:

Key Highlights
• The Company’s top-line growth was largely attributed to the increase in the average selling prices, which drove its consolidated revenue to top at IDR1.6 tn.
• Despite the 10.1% YoY decline in net profit after tax brought about by higher interest expenses, the company managed to maintain net profit after tax attributable to parent entity at a relatively stable amount of IDR73.5 bn in 9M19. This, in turn, supported the Company’s ability to book stable EPS at IDR24/share on YoY basis.
• As of 9M19, gross profit increased by 6.2% YoY. However, gross margin for the nine months period of 2019 was slightly lower on YoY basis at 44.91%, largely due to higher direct labor cost.
• AGII has completed building of four new filling stations as per the 9M19 period.
• Total assets as of the end of September 2019 was at IDR6.9 tn. Meanwhile, liabilities and equity stood at IDR3.7 tn and IDR 3.2 tn, respectively.

Maintaining Positive Growth

The Company managed to book 4.7% YoY increase in their 9M19 EBITDA figure, resulting from its ability to log 10.5% YoY topline growth. This positive sales achievement in 9M19 was mainly driven by the growth in the Others Manufactures and Retail sectors which grew respectively by 6.3% and 3.5% YoY as of the nine months of 2019. These sectors contributed around 44% of AGII’s 9M19 total revenue compared to 39% in the corresponding period a year earlier

Solid Balance Sheet Profile

As of September 30, 2019, the Company booked IDR6.9 tn in total assets compared to IDR6.6 tn in 2018. Total liabilities and equity was at IDR3.7 tn and IDR3.2 tn, respectively. The Company will continue to embark on initiatives aimed at maintaining the appropriate level between its assets and liabilities while maintaining the equity needed to sustain its future growth.

Key Financial Ratios

In terms of profitability, AGII’s gross margin was at 44.91% while operating margin was at 18.63% and EBITDA margin at 31.42% as of 9M19. Going forward, the Company will continue to maintain its profitability profile so as to deliver optimum returns for its shareholders.

Some of the key events that took place during 9M19 included the following:

• Commenced operations of four new filling stations in 9M19.
• Retail and Medical sectors continued to become the main contributors of AGII’s revenue. These two sectors combined contributed to 53% of total sales in 9M19.
• AGII’s sales mix in terms of delivery methods consisted of bulk 51%, cylinder 33%, pipeline 3%, medical equipment and others 13%.
• The Company maintains its leading position by garnering a dominant market share in the production and distribution of air gas & non-air-gas products, specifically to the Retail and Medical sectors.
