Pefindo has affirmed its ‘idAAA’ rating to PT Indonesia Infrastructure Finance (IIF)’s Shelf Registered Bond I/2020 Phase II Series B with a size of Rp570bn that will mature on 28-Oct-2021. The Company’s readiness to repay its maturing bond is supported by its cash and cash equivalents and liquid marketable securities of Rp4.3tn at the end of June 2021.
Pefindo has affirmed its ‘idA-‘ ratings for PT Adhi Karya (Persero) Tbk (ADHI) and its shelf-registered bond I, shelf-registered bond II, and shelf-registered bond III. The outlook for the corporate rating has been revised to ‘stable’ from ‘negative’. The outlook revision reflects Pefindo’s expectation that ADHI will maintain its financial profile with strong access to funding, which subsequently will support its liquidity. Pefindo sees ADHI was able was able to manage its liquidity from the risk of a cash flow miss match, stemming from its project’s long life cycle, as reflected in its success in continuously rolling over its short-term working capital loans with domestic banks, state-owned in particular. In addition, Pefindo also expect ADHI to improve its earnings visibility on account of a relatively strong new contract wins in 2020 and 1H21, which adds scale and lessens the concentration risk from its ongoing projects in the Greater Jakarta LRT and Aceh-Sigli toll road. According to Pefindo the supporting factors for ADHI’s rating are as follow: 1) strong market position in the construction sector; 2) benefits as a state contractor; and 3) strong synergy with subsidiaries. The rating, however, is constrained by: 1) high leverage and weak cash flow protection measures; execution risks related to growing order book; and 3) volatile business environment in the construction sector.
Pefindo has assigned ‘idBBB’ financial strength rating to PT Asuransi Bhakti Bhayangkara (ABB). The outlook for the rating is ‘stable’. According to Pefindo, the rating reflects ABB’s: 1) captive business with the national police force (Kepolisian Negara Republik Indonesia or Polri): 2) conservative investment policy; and 3) high risk-based capital (RBC) ratio. However, the rating is constrained by its modest operating performance, modest equity base, and the tight competition in its non-captive businesses. Pefindo is of the view that the Covid-19 pandemic has moderately affected new business generation in the insurance industry. However Pefindo expects the pandemic’s impact on ABB’s credit profile to be manageable, considering its adequate liquidity position to settle potential claim payments.
