Automotive

Net income from the Group's automotive division increased by 29% to Rp4.3 trillion, reflecting higher sales volumes. Key points are as follows:

 
      --   The wholesale market for cars increased by 21% to 475,000 
            units in the first half of 2022 (source: Gaikindo). Astra's 
            car sales were 23% higher at 259,000 units, and its market 
            share increased from 53% to 54%. 18 new models and 10 revamped 
            models were launched during the period. 
      --   The wholesale market for motorcycles decreased by 8% to 2.2 
            million units in the first half of 2022 (source: Ministry 
            of Industry of the Republic of Indonesia). Astra Honda Motor's 
            sales decreased by 13% to 1.6 million units due to production 
            constraints caused by semiconductor supply issues which impacted 
            the business more than competitors. As a result, its market 
            share also decreased, from 77% to 73%. 1 new model and 7 revamped 
            models were launched during the period. 
      --   The Group's 80%-owned components business, Astra Otoparts, 
            reported a net income of Rp432 billion, a 62% increase compared 
            to the equivalent period last year, mainly due to higher revenues 
            from the original equipment manufacturer and replacement market 
            segments. 
 

Financial Services

Net income from the Group's financial services division increased by 36% to Rp2.9 trillion in the first half of this year due to higher contribution s from the consumer finance businesses. Key points are as follows:

 
      --   The Group's consumer finance businesses saw an 18 % in crease 
            in amounts financed to Rp47.2 trillion. The net income contribution 
            from the Group's car-focused finance companies increased by 
            47 % to Rp827 billion on larger loan portfolios. The net income 
            contribution from the Group's motorcycle-focused finance company, 
            Federal International Finance, in creased by 60 % to Rp1.5 
            trillion mainly due to lower loan loss provisions. 
      --   The Group's heavy equipment-focused finance companies saw 
            a 112% increase in amounts financed to Rp5.7 trillion. The 
            net income contribution from these businesses increased by 
            54% to Rp43 billion, mainly due to larger loan portfolios. 
      --   General insurance company Asuransi Astra Buana reported a 
            6% in crease in net income to Rp633 billion, due to higher 
            underwriting income and investment income. The Group's life 
            insurance company, Astra Life, recorded 3% higher gross written 
            premiums to Rp2.9 trillion. 
 

Heavy Equipment, Mining, Construction and Energy

Net income from the Group's heavy equipment, mining, construction and energy division increased by 131 % to Rp6.2 trillion, mainly due to higher contributions from heavy equipment sales, mining contracting and coal mining, all of which benefitted from higher coal prices. However, there were some adverse impacts on the coal operating volumes arising from Indonesia's temporary export ban on coal in January. Key points are as follows:

 
      --   59.5%-owned United Tractors reported a 129 % increase in net 
            income to Rp10.4 trillion. 
      --   Komatsu heavy equipment sales increased by 111 % to 2,900 
            units and saw higher revenue from its parts and service businesses. 
      --   Mining contractor Pamapersada Nusantara recorded a 7 % increase 
            in overburden removal volume at 437 million bank cubic metres, 
            while there was a 13 % decline in coal production to 50.4 
            million tonnes. 
      --   United Tractors' coal mining subsidiaries recorded 8 % lower 
            coal sales at 5.8 million tonnes, including 1.3 million tonnes 
            of metallurgical coal. However, this volume impact was more 
            than offset by higher coal selling prices. 
      --   Agincourt Resources, 95%-owned by United Tractors, reported 
            18 % lower gold sales at 144 ,000 oz . 
      --   General contractor Acset Indonusa, 82.2%-owned by United Tractors, 
            reported a lower net loss of Rp114 billion, compared with 
            a net loss of Rp153 billion in the first half of 2021. The 
            net loss was mainly due to the slowdown of several ongoing 
            projects and reduced construction project opportunities during 
            the pandemic. 
 

Agribusiness

Net income from the Group's agribusiness division increased by 25 % to Rp 645 billion, mainly due to improved crude palm oil price s. Key points are as follows:

 
      --   The net income of 79.7%-owned Astra Agro Lestari increased 
            by 25 % to Rp 809 billion. 
      --   Crude palm oil prices rose by 46% to Rp15,023/kg. 
      --   Crude palm oil and derivative product sales fell by 32 % to 
            635 ,000 tonnes, impacted by Indonesia's temporary export 
            ban on palm oil in the second quarter. The uncertain situation 
            in agribusiness is expected for the remainder of the year. 
 

Infras tru cture and Logistics

The Group's infrastructure and logistics division reported an increase in net income from Rp91 billion in the first half of the previous year to Rp353 billion, mainly due to improved performance in its toll road businesses . Key points are as follows:

 
      --   Astra has interests in 396km of operational toll roads along 
            the Trans-Java network and the Jakarta Outer Ring Road. 
      --   The Group's toll road concessions saw 34% higher toll revenue, 
            including contribution from the recently acquired Pandaan 
            Malang toll road. 
      --   Serasi Autoraya's net income decreased by 2% to Rp79 billion, 
            mainly due to lower used car sales and a reduction in operating 
            margin, despite a 9% increase in vehicles under contract to 
            25,100 units. 
 

Information Technology

The Group's information technology division, represented by 76.9% owned Astra Graphia, reported higher net income of Rp24 billion compared with Rp14 billion in the same period last year, primarily due to improved operating margin, despite lower revenue from its office business services.

Property

The Group's property division reported a 12% decrease in net income to Rp73 billion, compared with the first half of the previous year, primarily due to lower earnings from Anandamaya Residences from the last few remaining units.

Recent Corporate Actions

 
      --   During the first half, the Group purchased a 5.43% stake in 
            PT Medikaloka Hermina Tbk, one of the largest hospital groups 
            in Indonesia. 
      --   In March and April, respectively, the Group also increased 
            its investment in Sayurbox, an e-commerce grocery platform, 
            bringing the Group's total investment to US$13.6 million, 
            and Mapan, a digital community-based social commerce platform, 
            bringing the Group's total investment to US$5.4 million . 
      --   In June, the Group led the funding round of Paxel, a technology-based 
            logistics business, of US$14.5 million. 
      --   In July, the Group, signed a Shares Subscription Agreement 
            to subscribe for a 49.56% stake in PT Bank Jasa Jakarta for 
            Rp3.9 trillion. Completion of this transaction is subject 
            to fulfilment of all conditions precedent in the agreement, 
            including approval of the Otoritas Jasa Keuangan (the Indonesian 
            Financial Services Authority). 
      --   In July, United Tractors announced a share buyback programme 
            of up to Rp5 trillion. 
 

Prospects

In the first half of 2022, the Group recorded good performances from almost all of its business divisions, which was supported by the improvement of economic conditions and significantly higher commodity prices. The Group's results for the rest of the year are expected to remain strong, although the Group anticipates that it may still face an unstable and uncertain trading environment.
