Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia - State-owned steel producer PT Krakatau Steel Tbk (KRAS) will increase its ownership in a joint venture (JV) with Posco, PT Krakatau Posco (PTKP) to 50%. This increase in ownership will be carried out by adding capital to the company.

Based on the disclosure of information released by the company, the capital to be added is in the form of land and a hot strip mill (HSM) 2 factory and all equipment, facilities, infrastructure or other things standing on the land.

After this transaction, Krakatau Steel's ownership in PTKP will increase to 50% non-controlling, from the current 30% ownership position and 70% ownership in Posco.

The company with Posco and PTKP have signed a Memorandum of In-Kind Transaction Procedure Agreement (MITPA) on December 31, 2021 for the proposed transaction.

The total value for this proposed transaction is US$ 265 million or around Rp. 3.78 trillion (assuming an exchange rate of Rp. 14,300/US$). Later, Krakatau Steel will acquire 422,800 new Series B shares with a nominal value of US$ 166 with a total value of US$ 70.18 million.

In this asset transfer, KRAS will also transfer its debts worth US$ 246.98 million or Rp. 3.53 trillion to PTKP. Because currently the HSM2 facility is being pledged as collateral to Commerzbank-AKA.

With this transaction, the company will benefit from a decrease in the value of liabilities and an increase in share ownership as well as additional income from this joint venture.

In addition, PTKP will also receive cash compensation of US$ 90 million (Rp 1.28 trillion) which will be used for restructuring and supporting working capital as well as obtaining non-cash compensation in the form of eliminating derivative obligations in article 3.4 of the Cooperation Agreement (JVA).

Completion of this transaction will wait for a number of requirements, starting from the approval of the Krakatau Steel, POSCO and PTKP corporations, approval of Krakatau Steel and PTKP creditors, PTKP's due diligence on the HSM #2 Facility, and JVA amendments.

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Krakatau Steel and Pohang Iron and Steel Company—or Posco—from South Korea will realize US$3.7 billion worth of new investments or around Rp53 trillion next year. President director Silmy Karim said that the purpose of this investment is to pursue the steel cluster production target.

"A steel cluster [with a capacity of] up to 10 million tons [per year] will be realized in 2022," Silmy said in a video from the Presidential Secretariat's YouTube channel on Tuesday, September 21.

The investment comprises US$700 million for increasing the production capacity of hot rolled coin (HRC) derivatives and US$3 billion for adding steel production facilities on the upstream side.

Silmy said that, in five years from 2014, steel consumption per capita in Indonesia continued to grow from 50 kilograms per year to 71 kilograms per year, or at a rate of 40 percent.

As one of the steps to increase production capacity, Krakatau Steel has just completed the construction of its Hot Strip Mill 2 (HSM 2) factory. Located in Cilegon, the factory—built with an investment of US$521 million—began operating in 2021 with a production capacity of 1.5 million tons of HRC.

Indonesia establishes consortium to reverse engineer anti-ship missile​

by Ridzwan Rahmat

An Indonesian consortium mainly comprising state-owned enterprises has been established to reverse engineer an anti-ship missile type with a view of establishing the capability in-country.

The consortium is led by the Indonesian Ministry of Defense's (MoD's) Directorate for Technology and Defense Industry and includes state-owned enterprises namely aerospace company PT Dirgantara Indonesia, defence electronics enterprise PT Len, explosives manufacturer PT Dahana, and heavy vehicles and ammunition producer PT Pindad.

Meanwhile, the two private enterprises that have been named as part of the consortium are defence software company PT Mulia Laksana Utama and unmanned aerial vehicles manufacturer PT Aero Terra Indonesia. An agreement to formalise the consortium was signed on 1 April, the Indonesian MoD said in a statement on 2 April.

Among matters that were formalised include the scope of work that each company will be involved in and the tests and certification processes that will be carried out at various stages of the weapon's dismantling.

“We hope that the mastering of this technology will eventually lead to the existence of an indigenous anti-ship missile industry and the ability to produce the weapon in-country to support the armed forces' objectives of preserving the country's sovereignty,” the MoD said in the statement.

The MoD statement stopped short of disclosing the type of missiles that will be involved in the reverse engineering process. However, an image accompanying its statement closely resembled the C-705 medium-range anti-ship missile manufactured by China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC).
