PRESIDENT DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

Performance

The Group's consolidated net revenue for the first nine months of 2021 was Rp167.4   trillion, an increase of 28 % compared with the same period last year. Net income was Rp15.0   trillion, 7 % higher than the first nine months of 2020, when the Group benefited from the gain on the sale of its investment in Permata Bank. Excluding this one-off gain, the G roup's net income showed an 84 % improvement , with better performances from all its business divisions .  

The net asset value per share at 30th September 2021 was Rp 4,114 , 7% higher than the net asset value per share at 31st December 2020.

Net cash, excluding the Group's financial services subsidiaries, was Rp25.5 trillion at 30th September 2021, compared with Rp7.3 trillion at the end of 2020,
due to an improved trading performance, together with relatively low capital expenditure realisation and working capital. However, if trading volumes continue to improve in the remainder of the year, both capital expenditure and working capital could increase. The net debt of the Group's financial services subsidiaries slightly increased from Rp39.2 trillion at the end of 2020 to Rp39.3 trillion at 30 th September 2021.

Automotive
Net income from the Group's automotive division increased by 207 % to Rp5.5 trillion, mainly due to the significant adverse impact on performance in the second quarter of last year from the pandemic and related containment measures, as well as an increase in sales volume in the first nine months of this year, especially in the car segment which benefited from temporary luxury sales tax incentives . Key points were as follows:
 

The wholesale market for cars increased by 69% to 628 ,000 units in the first nine months of 2021 (source: Gaikindo). Astra's car sales for that period were 79% higher at 344,000 units, with market share increas ing   from 52% to 55% . 10 new models and 16 revamped models were launched in the first nine months of 2021.

The wholesale market for motorcycles increased by 31 % to 3.8 million units in the first nine months of 2021 (source: Ministry of Industry). Astra Honda Motor's sales increased by 26 % to 2.9 million units. Four new models and 14 revamped models were launched in the first nine months of 2021.

The Group's 80%-owned components business, Astra Otoparts, reported a net income of   Rp446 billion, compared to a net loss of Rp243 billion in the equivalent period last year , mainly due to higher   revenues from the original equipment manufacturer, replacement market and export segments .


Financial Services
Net income from the Group's financial services division increased by 23% to Rp 3.4 trillion in the first nine months of 2021, primarily due to higher contribution from the consumer finance   and general insurance businesses. Key points were as follows:
 

The Group's consumer finance businesses saw a 20% increase in new amounts financed to Rp 60.7 trillion. The net income contribution from the Group's car-focused finance companies increased by 41 % to Rp 940 billion, while the net income contribution from its motorcycle-focused business, Federal International Finance, increased by 38 % to Rp 1.6 trillion. Both increases were mainly due to lower loan loss provisioning.

The Group's heavy equipment-focused finance business saw a 68% increase in new amounts financed to Rp 4.5 trillion. The net income contribution from this segment increased by 32% to Rp49 billion.

General insurance company Asuransi Astra Buana reported a 9 % increase in net income to Rp 853 billion, mainly due to higher investment income . The Group's life insurance company, Astra Life, recorded a 58% increase in gross written premiums to Rp4.0 trillion.


Heavy Equipment, Mining, Construction and Energy
Net income from
the Group's heavy equipment, mining, construction and energy division   increased by 51% to Rp 4.7 trillion, due to higher Komatsu heavy equipment sales and improved coal prices . Key points were as follows:

Komatsu heavy equipment sales rose 84 % to 2,194 units, while parts and service revenues were also higher.

General contractor Acset Indonusa, 82.2%-owned by United Tractors, reported a net loss of Rp 386 billion , mainly due to the slowdown of several ongoing projects and reduced construction project opportunities during the pandemic.  

In August 2021, Acset Indonusa raised Rp1.5 trillion from a new equity issue, to reduce debt and to strengthen its capital structure. Following the new equity issue, United Tractors' ownership in Acset Indonusa increased from 64.8% to 82.2%.


Agribusiness
Net income from the Group's agribusiness division increased by 152% to Rp1.2 trillion, mainly due to improved crude palm oil price s. Key points were as follows:

Crude palm oil prices rose by 31 % to Rp 10,699 /kg.

Infras tru cture and Logistics

Astra has interests in 358km of operational toll roads along the Trans-Java network and in the Jakarta Outer Ring Road.

Serasi Autoraya's net income increased by 77% to Rp115 billion, mainly due to improved operating margin and a 2% increase in the number of vehicles under contract to 23,500 units, despite lower used car sales.


Information Technology
Net income from the Group's information technology division, 76.9%-owned Astra Graphia, was 8 % higher   at Rp28   billion, primarily due to lower operational cost and higher interest income, despite lower revenue from the document solution and office service businesses.

Property
Net income from the Group's property division increased by 52 % to Rp 131 billion in the first nine months of 2021, mainly due to higher occupancy and lower operational costs at Menara Astra.

Prospects
The Group's overall performance improved in the first nine months of 2021, supported by strong automotive sales volumes and higher commodity prices. Although there are uncertainties with the ongoing macroeconomic environment due to impact of the pandemic, the Group's strong performance gives us optimism for the remainder of the year. In addition, the Group's balance sheet position remains healthy and solid.
