Pan Brothers (PBRX) expects a stable exchange rate PDF Print E-mail

Garment manufacturers, PT Pan Brothers Tbk (PBRX) are known to have export-oriented sales, so that when the US dollar (US) exchange rate at the end of last year strengthened it was estimated that the company would get a significant profit. At the beginning of this year, the US dollar exchange rate against the Rupiah was not as strong as the end of this year, although management claimed not to be too concerned.


Because, said Anne Patricia Sutanto, Deputy Managing Director of PBRX, even though the company has revenues from US dollars, corporate expenses are also mostly in US dollars. "What is important for us is that the exchange rate is stable so that when pricing we know where to go,"


For your information, one of the expenditures in US dollars comes from raw materials such as synthetic woven or synthetic textiles, these materials fill 70% -80% of the production needs of manufacturers and most of them still come from imports. Previously, the company planned to build the raw material factory, but still experienced a delay due to PBRX wait-and-see for the current global market situation.


After all, Anne said, the production costs could still be handled so that it would not burden the company too high. So she does not overly conclude whether the strengthening or weakening of the exchange rate makes the company gain profit or lose money.


"Even if it rises or not, it cannot be said profit or loss. What we expect is that the fluctuation is not instantaneous, at least it can be measured, so if necessary (US dollars) it won't panic," said Anne. Whereas in 2019, management projects sales growth of around 10% -20% compared to last year.


As for revenue in 2018 from unaudited reports, management is optimistic that it can be above US $ 600 million. This year PBRX will boost its exports especially after the signing of the Indonesian agreement with the countries that are members of the European Tree Trade Association (EFTA).



Pan Brothers (PBRX) lebih harapkan kurs yang stabil




Produsen garmen, PT Pan Brothers Tbk (PBRX) diketahui penjualannya berorientasi ekspor, sehingga ketika kurs dolar Amerika Serikat (AS) di akhir tahun lalu menguat diperkirakan perseroan memperoleh keuntungan yang signifikan. Pada awal tahun ini, kurs dolar AS terhadap Rupiah tidak sekuat akhir tahun ini, kendati demikian manajemen mengaku tak terlalu ambil pusing.


Sebab, kata Anne Patricia Sutanto, Wakil Direktur Utama PBRX, walau perseroan memiliki pendapatan dari dolar AS namun pengeluaran perusahaan juga sebagian besar dalam jumlah dolar AS pula. "Yang penting bagi kami kurs stabil agar saat pricing (penentuan harga) kami tahu harus dimana,"


Sekadar informasi, salah satu pengeluaran dalam dolar AS tersebut berasal dari bahan baku seperti jenis synthetic woven atau tekstil sintetis, material tersebut mengisi 70%-80% kebutuhan produksi pabrikan dan sebagian besar masih berasal dari impor. Sebelumnya perseroan berencana membangun pabrik bahan baku tersebut, namun masih mengalami penundaan karena PBRX wait-and-see terhadap situasi pasar global saat ini.


Lagi pula, kata Anne selama ini ongkos produksi masih dapat ditangani sehingga tidak sampai membebani perseroan terlalu tinggi. Sehingga ia tidak terlalu muluk-muluk menyimpulkan apakah dengan menguat atau melemahnya kurs membuat perusahaan bertambah untung atau merugi.


"Walau naik atau tidak, belum bisa dikatakan untung atau pun rugi. Yang kami harapkan fluktuasinya tidak seketika paling tidak dapat terukur, jadi kalau perlu (dolar AS) tidak sampai panik," kata Anne. Sedangkan di tahun 2019 ini manajemen memproyeksikan pertumbuhan penjualan kisaran 10%-20% dibandingkan tahun kemarin.


Adapun perolehan pendapatan di 2018 kemarin dari laporan yang belum diaudit, manajemen optimis dapat berada di atas US$ 600 juta. Tahun ini PBRX bakal menggenjot ekspornya apalagi setelah penandatanganan perjanjian Indonesia dengan negara yang tergabung dalam European Tree Trade Association (EFTA).
