Indonesia's economic acceleration, the nation's recently obtained investment grade status from Standard & Poor's (S&P) and the (near) record high position of the benchmark Jakarta Composite Index makes it more attractive for Indonesian companies to conduct an initial public offering (IPO) on the Indonesia Stock Exchange. Moreover, the Federal Reserve is committed not to cause too much volatility in markets by acting cautiously and communicating its (possible future) moves clearly.
Over the past one and a half weeks, a total of three companies went public in Indonesia: (1) First Indo American Leasing, (2) Alfa Energi Investama, and (3) Totalindo Eka Persada.
First Indo American Leasing
Consumer lending company First Indo American Leasing became the 544th listed company in Indonesia on 8 June 2017. It collected IDR 80.4 billion by selling a 41.18 percent stake to the public. All funds generated through this corporate move are allocated to working capital (specifically credit expansion). Since its listing the company's shares have fallen 3.03 percent and, as such, can be labelled the least successful IPO among the three.

Stock Quote Totalindo Eka Persada - TOPS:
So far in 2017 a total of 11 companies have conducted an IPO on the Indonesia Stock Exchange and therefore we expect to see a rebound in the number of IPOs this year. Last year only 14 companies went public, the lowest figure since 2009.
