Cash-strapped PLN issues Rp 1.88t in bonds to fund operations

first_imgThe conventional bonds’ interest rates are all higher than the benchmark 10-year government bond rate of 6.9 percent, except for the Series A with a five-year tenure (6.7 percent), although lower than the PLN bond issuance in February with coupon rates of between 7.2 and 9.05 percent.PLN’s bond issuance expands the company’s breathing space as it disburses billions of dollars in COVID-19 relief schemes on top of billions more for government-led infrastructure projects, including the program to build 35 gigawatts (GW) worth of new power plants.“The [bonds] funds will be used to expand the 35GW program and for general corporate purposes,” PLN spokeswoman Arsyadani Akmalaputri told The Jakarta Post in a short text message on Wednesday.PLN, Indonesia’s largest electricity company, has frequently issued global and domestic bonds over the past two years to patch financial problems arising from the company’s expansion projects, while keeping electricity retail prices at a minimum. Read also: Govt to spend $1 billion on electricity fee reliefThe company’s bonds, both the conventional and sukuk, were given a AAA rating – the highest rung – by the Indonesian credit rating agency (Pefindo) due to the company’s strong government ties, market monopoly and “financial flexibility”.The company legally monopolizes the distribution of electricity, whose demand is expected to grow in the medium term, between two to three years, despite the sharp decrease due to the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.However, Pefindo also alluded to PLN’s cash flow, which is facing a major financial strain from the infrastructure projects and relief programs, part of the company’s Public Service Obligations (PSO).“The rating could be lowered if Pefindo views a material reduction in government support,” wrote the agency.Recently, the government ordered state-owned electricity company PLN to lower the electricity rates for all homes and certain businesses to boost people’s purchasing power.Under the order, PLN will cut its electricity rate, which is expressed in rupiah per kilowatt hour (Rp/KwH), by 1.5 percent. The price is down to Rp 1,444.7 per KwH between October and December this year, from the previous Rp 1,467 per KwH.Read also: PLN to temporarily cut electricity rates for low-power homes, businessesCreaking under the weight of the COVID-19 relief schemes, PLN’s net profit nosedived 96.5 percent year-on-year (yoy) to Rp 251.6 billion in the first half, mainly caused by foreign exchange losses amid a weak rupiah exchange rate.Topics : State-owned electricity giant PLN officially listed Rp 1.88 trillion (US$126.9 million) worth of bonds at the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) on Wednesday, as it seeks to fund its operation and expansion amid the pressure of COVID-19 relief schemes on its finances.In a letter sent to the bourse on Tuesday, PLN revealed that the bonds comprise 10 series, half of which are conventional bonds totaling Rp 1.5 trillion and the other five of which are sukuk (sharia-compliant bonds) amounting to Rp 376.5 billion.The bonds have varied maturity periods of five years to 20 years, according to the company’s data. For the conventional bonds, the yields range from 6.7 percent for the 5-year tenure to 8.86 percent for 20-year bonds.last_img read more

first_imghighlights New Delhi: Kolkata Knight Riders are riding high on confidence after wins over Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab. Heading into the clash against Delhi Capitals at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Kolkata Knight Riders would be aiming to win their third straight game and prove themselves worthy contenders for the IPL 2019 title. However, Delhi Capitals, who started their tournament on a high with a win over three-time champions Mumbai Indians but stumbled against another three-time champions Chennai Super Kings, know that yet another loss will derail their momentum which they built after the win at the Wankhede. Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting stressed after the Chennai Super Kings game that the team needed to bat well in the death overs and bowl well in the powerplay in order to be consistent.Chris Morris, speaking in the pre-match press conference, stated that the wicket at the Feroz Shah Kotla has offered more spin and the occasional ball is stopping on the wicket. With this statement, Kolkata Knight Riders will be tempted to field a lot of spinners. Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine and Piyush Chawla will hold the key in this encounter. Nitish Rana, who captains Delhi in the Ranji Trophy, has already hit two consecutive fifties and will be gunning for a third in this season. Robin Uthappa, Narine and Chris Lynn make Kolkata Knight Riders’ batting potent. Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad.Delhi Capitals lost to Chennai Super Kings.Nitish Rana has slammed two consecutive fifties. For Delhi Capitals, The top order is looking in good shape despite the setback against Chennai Super Kings. Shikhar Dhawan might need to step up and play with far more aggression in order to lay the platform for Rishabh Pant. Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw, the young stars of the side will be gunning for redemption but the bowling, in addition to the captaincy, will have to be smart if they have to stop a dominant Kolkata Knight Riders side.Team combinations With the Kotla deck assisting spin, the teams might load their bowling line-up with pacers while pace bowlers will be tempted to take the pace off the ball. A good start in the powerplay will be the key, meaning Narine might once again get a promotionKolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh KrishnaDelhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Colin Ingram, Rishabh Pant(w), Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant SharmaWho will win?
