Directors Report

  • Dear Shareholders and Stakeholders,

    Praise the Lord for His blessings that the Company still achieved positive performance in the year 2022 amidst the challenging economic conditions due to geopolitical tensions.

    In 2022, the economy starts to recover in line with the ease of mobility restriction. However, there is geopolitical tension from Russia-Ukraine war which triggered an energy crisis, especially oil and gas, driven up very high global inflation. With these economic conditions, the Indonesian economy continued to record a mild growth at 5.3%, which was mainly supported by domestic demand and maintained purchasing power. 

    During difficult time and challenges after Covid-19 pandemic, there are also positive impacts, namely increasing of people awareness toward cleanliness and hygiene. These indirectly provide positive effects to the Company who dealt with cleaning products.

    With sincere gratitude we humbly report that in 2022 the Company achieved a good financial result compared to target, with consolidated revenue of USD 412.08 million, an increase of 11.05% from 2021 which was USD 371.08 million. The Company net profit in 2022 was USD 37.90 million a decrease of 37.41% from 2021 which was USD 58.05 million, but still above the Company’s target for 2022. 

    Such achievement pushed us to maintain positive working attitude, to be vigilant and to continue pursuing sustainable growth.

    The Company committed to sustainable growth which is necessary to meet present and future demand. We are aware and obliged to align the operation with Environment, Social and Economic aspects which is the key to a successful business growth.

    Strategy and Policy of Strategy 

    The increase of awareness for clean and hygienic lifestyle resulted an increase of demand for the Company’s product. Therefore, the Company will expand its production capacity, whereas this capacity expansion is expected to start in 2023 and to be completed in 2025.

    In the meantime, the Company will maximize its production output and maintain stable distribution of product to ensure raw material availability for continuous production of loyal customers, both domestic and overseas. The Company will also continue explore new market.

    To ensure the Company ran smoothly also employees’ health and safety were well protected, the Company set regulations based on government Covid-19 health protocols and enforced them to all employees at the plant and at the office. The Company has also implemented a COVID-19 vaccination program for employees and their families, so that the Company’s activities can continue to run smoothly and effectively.

    The Company always carry out and professionally managed sustainable and environmentally friendly operations in accordance with prevailing laws and regulations. The Company has obtained ISO 14001:2015 certificate by SGS Systems & Services Certification since 2004. 

    Directors’ Role in Formulating Strategy and Policy 

    The Company directors had important roles in formulating the Company Strategy and Policy to achieve The Company’s goal and to present the best result to the stakeholders.

    The strategy and policy had been evaluated and discussed in depth. The Company directors were assisted by the Company management in analyzing risks for finance, nonfinance and business prospects. The end results were delivered to the Company Commissioners for consideration and feedback.

    The directors, assisted by the management team, Internal Audit unit, and the Corporate Secretary, continuously monitor the implementation of the approved Company strategy and policy and when made adjustments and revisions when needed adapting to the changes of economic situation and condition. 

    Comparison between Result and Target 

    In 2022 the crude oil price experienced an extraordinary soaring price, especially in the first to second quarters due to the impact from Russia-Ukraine war, but then decreased until the end of year. The fluctuation of crude oil price greatly affected the raw material costs and the Company product selling price, where the downtrend effect caused to stress the Company’s margin.

    With these adverse conditions, the Company is still able to achieve consolidated revenue of USD 412.08 million which exceeds the 2022 target of USD 387.79 million. This gave the Company higher margin in 2022 and recorded gross profit of USD 73.47 million exceeding the 2022 target of USD 63.88 million. 


    The drastic changes of crude oil prices caused by Russian-Ukraine war Covid-19 would affect the Company’s margin. Even though the Covid-19 pandemic has become endemic, but the still presence of active cases could potentially delayed the Company’s operations.

    Covid-19 health protocols restricted direct meetings with contractors and related parties which was replaced by virtual meetings. In addition to that border closures and isolation quarantines for visitors, especially in the first half of 2022 affect the project progress. Therefore, the expansion project experienced delay from the original plan.

This prediction is based on 2022 economic growth indicators which continue to recover.

With good economic growth, population size and population growth will give good prospect to the detergent and cleaning industries in Indonesia.
