Today's Headlines BEI No Kep-00001/BEI/01-2014
The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) requests 28 companies that are listed on the IDX to comply with the minimum free float and shareholder requirements that are stipulated by BEI No. Kep-00001/BEI/01-2014. Initially, the IDX provided time until 31 January 2016 for publicly-listed companies to comply with new rules. However, currently there are still 28 companies that fail to meet the new requirements (but which forms an improvement from the year-start when 90 companies still had to comply with new regulations).
The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) will summon 18 listed companies to explain why they did not comply with the new minimum 7.5 percent free float regulation (free float is the number of companies' outstanding shares available to the public for trade). This new regulation, announced in January 2014, stipulates all listed companies on the IDX to have a minimum free float ratio of 7.5 percent per 31 January 2016 (BEI No. Kep-00001/BEI/01-2014). This regulation was designed in an attempt to boost market liquidity and raise trade volume on the IDX.
There are seven companies that are expected to conduct an initial public offering (IPO) on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) in the first quarter of 2016: Buyung Poetra Sembada, Summarecon Investment Property, Mahaka Radio Integra, Cikarang Listrindo, Mitra Pemuda, Ciputra Residence, and Bank Ganesha. In total, the IDX targets to see 35 new listing on the IDX in 2016. Indonesian lender Bank Artos Indonesia was the first company to be added to the IDX in 2016.
The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) will give time until 31 January 2016 for the remaining 18 publicly-listed companies that have not yet complied with the new minimum free float requirement that aims to increase liquidity in the stock market. In January 2014, the IDX announced it designed a new rule that forces all listed companies on the IDX to have a minimum free float of 7.5 percent. Samsul Hidayat, Director of Corporate Listing at the IDX, said these 18 companies are currently studying whether to conduct a rights issue or a stock split in order to raise their free float.
HM Sampoerna, Indonesia's largest tobacco producer by market capitalization (controlling about 23 percent of the Indonesian tobacco market), plans to increase its free-float shares by 5.68 percent (valued at USD $1.27 billion) in order to meet the minimum free float requirement of 7.5 percent set by the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) in a regulation introduced in January 2014 and which will come into effect on 30 January 2016. By this date all listed companies on the IDX must have a minimum free float of 7.5 percent.
