The company also received the mandate to become the underwriter of bond issuance from three companies. “Indonesia’s stock market is still promising, the index is likely to break the level of 6,300 by the end of this year so that foreign and local investors are still interested in collecting IPO shares,” said Feb.
In the first half of 2017, the company handled the IPO of Totalindo Eka Persada Tbk (TOPS), Integra Indocabinet Tbk (WOOD) and Buyung Poetra Sembada Tbk (HOKI) with a value of around IDR 1 trillion.
