MedcoEnergi EGMS Results & 1H16 Financial Results

Jakarta, 30 September, 2016 – Today PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk ("MedcoEnergi" or the "Company") held an Extraordinary General Meeting of its Shareholders (“EGMS”) with two agenda items. The first item approved was the acquisition of 50% of PT Amman Mineral Investama which will indirectly control an 82.2% interest in PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara (the “Acquisition”). The second agenda item approved was a capital increase through a limited public offering with preemptive rights to shareholders (“Rights Issue”).

The Acquisition will add significant shareholder value by giving access to a world class operating facility at Batu Hijau with proved reserves of 2.6 billion lbs of copper and 2.7 million oz of gold and future access to discovered undeveloped reserves of 12.9 billion lbs of copper and 19.7 million oz of gold. The Acquisition will add scale to the Company's equity and investment portfolio, and will materially elevate the revenue contribution from non-energy sectors.

Through the Rights Issue, the Company will raise fund the equivalent of approximately US$ 150 million. The proceeds will be used to repay maturing debt and to fund capital expenditures. Post Rights Issue, the Company will have a stronger capital structure to support its expanded activities.

Today, the Company has also released its audited consolidated financial statements for the six month period ending June 30, 2016 (“1H16”), and results are summarized below.

1H16 Operational Key Points

  • Oil and Gas production volume of 64 MBOEPD was 29% higher than 1H15. The increase in production volume was mainly due to the continued excellent performance from the Senoro-Toili Gas field.

Full year guidance for operating costs and capex, excluding acquisitions, remains unchanged. Whilst full year production, excluding acquisitions, is expected to be slightly above the 55 – 60 mboepd range previously advised.

The CEO of MedcoEnergi, Roberto Lorato, said “Amidst the still challenging industry environment, MedcoEnergi is continuing to renew the Company’s asset portfolio. Our focus now will be to successfully complete these acquisitions and to integrate them into our organization. The operational performance of our producing assets continues to improve while our Block A Aceh development is on schedule and under budget.”

The President Director of MedcoEnergi, Hilmi Panigoro, remarked the strategic nature of the recent acquisitions is in line with our ambition to become the leading independent player in the Indonesian natural resources sector.
