PT Lippo Karawaci Tbk (“LPKR”) today announced the audited consolidated full year 2016 financial results with total revenue amounting to Rp 10.5 trillion up 18% from 2015 with a 10% growth in Gross Profit to Rp 4.5 trillion and 65% jump in Net Income to Rp 882 billion.

Ketut Budi Wijaya, LPKR President Director stated:  "It's been a challenging year. The weak global macroeconomy led by the ‘Brexit” factor and the unexpected results in the US Presidential election, has had a negative ripple effect on Indonesia’s economy. The Indonesia property sector in 2016 continued its slow down from 2015. Fortunately for us our Recurring Revenue underpinned by a 25% growth in Healthcare Revenue helped to mitigate this weakness.”

Development Revenue grew by 11% to Rp 3.8 trillion, contributing 36% to total Revenue. The completion of the Lippo Mall Kuta asset sale to LMIRT in December 2016 boosted the company’s Development Revenue by Rp 762 billion.

Revenue from Urban Development Division slightly decreased by 4% to Rp 2.5 trillion.

Revenue from the Large Scale Integrated Division increased sharply by 62% to Rp 1,25 trillion in FY 2016 mainly due to increased revenue recognition from projects such as Trivium at Lippo Cikarang, Holland Village, Millenium Village and Orange County.

Recurring Revenue played a crucial role in balancing the cyclicality of the weak property business. Recurring Revenue grew by a steady 23% to Rp 6.75 trillion contributing 64% to total Revenue.

Revenue from the Healthcare Division grew by 25% to Rp 5.17 Trillion. Siloam operated 23 hospitals by end of 2016. In-Patient admissions were up by 18% while Out-Patient visits grew by 20%. Net Profit for the year amounted to Rp 86 billion, up by 22%.

LPKR's Commercial Division revenue increased by 21% to Rp 732 billion due mainly to sharp increases in Malls Revenue by 47% to Rp 353 billion, as Lippo Mall Puri revenue increased by 95% to Rp 187 billion in 2016. Meanwhile, Hotels Revenue remained steady at Rp 379 bn.

The Asset Management business consisting of town management and portfolio & property management, grew by 13% to Rp 853 billion in 2016 mostly due to enlarged asset under management, in the REITS portfolio.

Ketut also pointed out the strengthening of the company’s balance sheet through our successful tapping of the global bond markets to refinance our 2019 and 2020 senior notes of USD 250 million and USD 403 million respectively by issuing USD 260 million due 2022 and  USD 425 million due 2026 notes with 7% and 6.75% coupon respectively. The private placement of 9% Siloam shares to CVC Capital Partners provided further funding for the hospital expansion.
