Jakarta, May 22, 2012: As its net profit increased by 44.6 percent to Rp 97.9 billion in 2011, Cargo transportation and logistic firm PT Samudera Indonesia Tbk announced its dividend of Rp 200 per share, up from Rp 160 per share in 2010.
The decision was made in the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGMS) held on Tuesday (22/5) in Ballroom A, Grand Ball Room Kempinski. The AGMS was followed by the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders (EGMS).
“The shareholders deserved to earn their dividends as the Company profit and revenue increased,” Samudera Indonesia President Director Masli Mulia said in a public expose, which was held after the AGMS and EGMS.
Masli added the Company’s revenue rose to Rp 5.119 trillion in 2011, up by 18.2 percent from 2010 due to a revenue increase in shipping, logistics, and terminal businesses particularly those in Indonesia.
“With our revenue increasing, our expansion last year paid off,” he said, adding that Samudera Indonesia invested Rp 900 billion last year.
In 2012, Masli said Samudera Indonesia would be prudent and calculating measures carefully as the global business situation has yet to make a significant improvement.
“However, there remains optimism generated by the expectation of continued economic growth in Indonesia,” he added.
Thus, the management will focus on maximizing current fleet and infrastructure utilization, leveraging the Group-wide customer base, ensuring cost efficiency, and exploring ways to improve customer service, he said.
Meanwhile, in the EGMS, shareholders approved the appointment of Rudolf Saut as a Director of the Company for the 2012-2013 period, along with the existing Board of Directors that retained their posts for another year.
Aside from announcing the AGMS and EGMS results, Masli said Samudera Indonesia, which is known by the public as a shipping company, wanted to introduce itself which has grown as end-to-end cargo transportation and logistics company.
According to him, Samudera is capable of serving customers starting from transporting goods using containers provided by Samudera Contained Depot via trucks from Samudera Inland Transport, then storing the goods in Samudera Warehouse, transferring the goods and container to Samudera Terminal, and transporting them to the port destination, before being received by customers.
Not only simplifying goods delivery, Samudera Indonesia’s integrated service was expected to reduce the customer’s delivery costs, he added.
