Metland Held Public Expose 2016
Property developer PT Metropolitan Land Tbk (MTLA) held a Public Expose to explain the company performance up to third quarter of 2016 in Jakarta (5/12).
In third quarter of 2016, MTLA recorded profit of IDR 169 billion, up 6.2% from the same period last year which amounted to IDR 159 billion. The increase in profit was triggered by the increase in recurring income from hotel and mall and another factor which was the government policy regarding the changes in the calculation of final income tax from 5% to 2.5%. MTLA’s total revenue up to third quarter of 2016 was IDR 756 billion, a slight 2% increase compared to third quarter of 2015 which was IDR 750 billion. “We are seeing a flat growth for performance up to third quarter compared to the same period last year due to the increase in sales which was only up since August 2016 so it is not yet reflected in the third quarter financial statements,” said Olivia Surodjo, Director of Finance of PT Metropolitan Land Tbk during Public Expose in Jakarta (5/12).
After relying on the sales from residential projects that target middle and middle low class during the first half of the year, this time Metland increased sales in middle and middle up projects such as Metland Menteng and Metland Transyogi which seen increase of 61% and 51% in marketing sales compared to the same period last year. “We are seeing an increase in the property sector in which the tax amnesty program imposed by the government was one of the driving factors along with the relaxation of policies in the property sector such as LTV and the decrease in mortgage interest rate,” said Thomas. “Even though we haven’t seen a significant impact, we see property to be one of the choices for investors to put their fund,” he added.
