Honorable Shareholders and Stakeholders,
Along with the growth of the Company’s achievement in 2016, the Directors of PT Wijaya Karya Beton Tbk (WIKA Beton Tbk) conveys gratitudes to God Almighty, for His blessings and mercy, coupled with our highest appreciation for the support provided by all Shareholders and stakeholders. Subsequently, let us submit a report on the Management of the Company and the achievement of key performance of PT WIKA Beton Tbk for the fiscal year ended on December 31, 2016.
Facing the Challenging Macro Economic and Industrial Conditions in 2016
The world economic recovery in 2016 was still not in line with expectations, along with the slow economic growth of developed countries, except the US economy which began to improve. On the other hand, economic growth in developing countries, especially India and China, were expected to be the next source of global and regional economic growth.
Although the global and regional economies have not been encouraging, the Indonesian economy has shown a better performance on the back of maintained domestic demand. The improved economic growth was supported by consumption and investment, particularly in infrastructure sector, which were quite strong, especially in the fourth quarter 2016.
In the industrial scale, national infrastructure sector was still affected by the Government's policy in allocating the budget. In 2016 the Government allocated an infrastructure budget of Rp313.5 trillion or 8% of the state budget in 2016. Big chunks of the budget were allocated to the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PWPH) and the Ministry of Transportation in 2016. The budget for the Ministry of PWPH was Rp103.8 trillion and for thr Ministry of Transportation was Rp50.16 trillion.
Throughout 2016 however the government slashed the budget twice. The first cut occurred on 8 April 2016, requiring the Ministry of PUPR undertook efficiency program worth of Rp8.4 trillion, or 8% of its budget allocation. Again, on August 3, 2016 the Government shrinked its expenditure of all ministries/government agencies by Rp65 trillion and transferred Rp68.8 trillion to regional governments. The reduction in the General Allocation Fund (GAF) has caused the decrease in regional government’s infrastructure spending, which in turn affected the industry where the Company is in. The condition of course has spawned national infrastructure industry dynamics that also affected the Company's sales growth in 2016. Nevertheless, with the right strategy, the Company was still able to take advantage of opportunities in the industrial sector for the Company’s growth.
In response to this condition, the Company kept working hard with solid footing and strategic steps that relied on the transformation to create value as presented in the Annual Report 2016 on the theme of "Transformation for The Stronger Future". Painstaking efforts by the management and all levels of the Company's organization have spawned forces of change in order to create sustainable growth.
Our Strategic Policy
In order to maximize sustainable growth in every year, the Company set a number of strategies necessary to maintain its position as the market leader. The Company made the strategic steps, namely: increasing the installed capacity by conducting intensification and extensification programs in the form of new plant construction; adopting new technologies that will increase production capacity; and collaborating with strategic alliances to expand its marketing network.
We also always improve our competence in human resources, particularly in the field of concrete products development through cooperation with leading educational institutions and agencies in Indonesia and abroad as well as acquiring companies with strategic positions that are equipped with the infrastructure required for development into regional markets of Southeast Asia.
The Company also conducts research and development of new products related to precast concrete with high technological contents and strengthens the existing products, such as piling, concrete pillars and beams bridge to increase market share in addition to develop new manufacturing facility equipped with a jetty that are supported by the source of natural material that are managed independently by the Company.
We also always maintain our commitment to provide quality products and in conformity with the contract through the implementation of sustainable quality management system; develop a business approach that focuses on the development of the market as well as the satisfaction and good relations with customers; strengthen the supply chain to ensure the availability of raw materials and other supporting materials through acquisitions and investments in supplying companies; and develop services of erecting and pre-stressing to strengthen our market position and complementary to the existing products and new product.
Satisfactory Growth Performance
We are grateful that the Company's performance in 2016 showed encouraging results although it faced a number of tough challenges. These achievements can be described both in the operational and financial performances.
In analyzing the operational performance, since 2016 the management has categorized its businesses into three segments, namely Centrifugal Precast Concrete Segment, Non-Centrifugal Precast Concrete Segments and Services segment. This segment grouping is a change from previous groupings, which based on various types of precast concrete. This change is specifically aimed at simplifying the Company’s business portfolio grouping.
|NO||Description||Production (Ton)||Production (%)||Income (In Million Rupiah)||Income (%)|
|1||Centrifugal Precast Concrete||837.905||857.173||97,8%||1.899.216||1.613.128||18%|
|2||Non-Centrifugal Precast Concrete||681.990||555.961||122,7%||1.449.789||977.787||48%|
Centrifugal Precast Concrete Performance
For the Company, 2016 became an important momentum year to record its best performance in terms of production, revenue, and profitability.
Although production of Centrifugal Precast Concrete in 2016 was 837,905 tonnes, a decrease from 857,173 tonnes in 2015. Nevertheless the Company’s revenue from Centrifugal Precast Concrete rose 18% from Rp1.61 trillion in 2015 to Rp1.89 trillion in 2016. The increase in sales was due to the improvement in selling prices in the market. The performance generated a profit of Rp322.35 billion, a significant increase from Rp216.45 billion in 2015.
Non-Centrifugal Precast Concrete Performance
The Company’s Non-Centrifugal Precast Concrete Production in 2016 was 681,990 tonnes, an increase from 555,961 tonnes in 2015. While revenue from Non-Centrifugal Precast Concrete also increased by 48% from Rp977.79 billion in 2015 to Rp1.45 trillion in 2016. The increase in revenue was caused by the increase in demand for precast concrete products for infrastructure projects bridges (elevated).
The performance generated a profit of Rp172.39 billion, a significant increase from Rp103.13 billion in 2015.
In addition to the Company's core business in precast concrete industry, the Company takes strategic step by performing backward integration, namely entering into services busineses that support precast concrete business. the Company's services business consist of pilling service (inner-boring), post tension, Quarry, and installation services.
The field of erecting services business (inner-boring) is a strategic step in supporting the Company's increase in sales of Centrifugal Precast Concrete products in densely populated locations, which began in 2015.
The field of post-tension service business is a strategic step in supporting the Company's increase in sales of Non-Centrifugal Precast Concrete products particularly bridge products, which has been started since 2014.
The Field of Quarry service business is the Company’s strategic move to support the security of supply of raw material/material stone split by opening a factory rockbreaking (crushing plant) which is one of main raw material for Centrifugal Precast Concrete Product, Non-Centrifugal Precast Concrete and Concrete Rainfall (readymix concrete), which began in 2015.
Business field of installation services is the Company’s strategic step in capturing business opportunities and added value for the Company for their purchase order of Non-Centrifugal Precast Concrete products in bridge construction with an attached contract, which started in 2016.

Along with these achievements, the Company recorded a Current Year Profit (Net Profit) of Rp281.57 billion, up 63.91% from Rp171.78 billion in 2015.

We strive to resolve the obstacles by refer to strategic management policy, starting from the evaluation of current conditions, implementing external & internal factor scanning (EFAS & IFAS), strategy determination, strategy implementation, and last but not least was evaluation and control of implementation.
