|WINS' management repositioning Company for expansion, through fleet restructuring and refocusing on future growth areas.|
JAKARTA, Aug 25, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - In the Public Expose on 25th August 2021, PT Wintermar Offshore Marine Tbk (WINS:JK) Managing Director Sugiman Layanto affirmed the positive outlook for the Company, as higher oil prices have initiated a new investment cycle for Offshore oilfield development.
The Company's Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGM) on 19th August 2021 approved the issuance of up to 415 million shares without pre-emptive rights, of which 400 million are to be issued at any time within the next 24 months, which together with the Company's lowered net gearing of 29% lays the foundation for setting a new direction of growth.
Summarizing the results for the first half this year, Finance Director Janto Lili said that the downsizing of fleet and cost efficiency measures had turned the Company around, from a gross loss last year to a gross profit of US$3.3 million in the first 6 months of 2021.
In his review of the business outlook, Managing Director Sugiman Layanto gave a four-point strategy for growth: 1) To focus on a streamlined and efficient fleet, 2) To continue to improve operational efficiency to keep a low cost base, 3) Positioning for future growth areas like new assets and venturing into renewable energy, and lastly 4) to integrate sustainability into business planning.
The positive industry prospects supported by higher oil prices has resulted in a higher demand for OSVs. With net gearing reduced to 29% currently and access to funding with the approval of share issuance, Wintermar is now ready to start investing again.
As at end of June 2021, the Company's Contracts on hand amounted to US$69 million.
