Bank Rakyat Indonesia, one of the leading commercial banks in Indonesia and among the largest listed companies in terms of market capitalization on the Indonesia Stock Exchange, posted solid corporate earnings over full-year 2017. The financial institution's net profit and net interest income both climbed by double-digit figures.
Its net profit was recorded at IDR 29.04 trillion (approx. USD $2.2 billion) in full-year 2017, up 10.7 percent (y/y) from IDR 26.23 trillion one year earlier. Meanwhile, Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI)'s net interest income reached IDR 73.0 trillion (approx. USD $5.5 billion), up 11.5 percent (y/y).
Haru Koesmahargyo, Finance Director of BRI, said the double-digit growth over 2017 was particularly supported by strong credit growth of 11.4 percent (y/y) to IDR 739.3 trillion (approx. USD $55.6 billion). Meanwhile, the bank's fee based income grew 13.2 percent (y/y) to IDR 10.4 trillion (approx. USD $782 million).
Most of BRI's credit - around 75 percent - was disbursed to the country's micro, small and medium-sized companies (in Indonesian: Usaha Mikro, Kecil dan Menengah, UMKM), hence this segment remained the key engine of BRI's corporate earnings. Micro credit disbursement reached IDR 239.5 trillion, which includes IDR 69.4 trillion of micro business credit (in Indonesian: Kredit Usaha Rakyat, or KUR).
In terms of credit quality, there was a slight increase in BRI's non-performing loans (gross) from 2.13 percent in 2016 to 2.23 percent in 2017.
Although we are still awaiting the latest audited data from Bank Mandiri, BRI is likely to have remained the biggest bank in Indonesia in terms of assets.
Regarding 2018, BRI targets profit growth in the range of 9 - 11 percent (y/y), similar to profit growth realization in 2017. BRI plans to increase its focus on the micro, small and medium-sized companies segment. Therefore, it targets to disburse 80 percent of the bank's total credit in this segment in 2018.
