16 Plans for the Future

We are a commercial development and management group in Riau Archipelago and an integrated

master planner for industrial parks and resorts in Batam and Bintan. Since the early 1990s, we have

operated in four key areas; utilities, industrial parks, resort operations and property developments.

In 2004, our operating revenues totalled approximately S$202.0 million while our total assets were

valued at approximately S$1.5 billion. Our principal shareholders include the Salim Group,

the Parallax Group, SembCorp Industries Ltd and the Ascendas Group.

Our businesses take advantage of the strategic proximity of Singapore and the close economic

cooperation between the Singapore and Indonesian governments to promote investment in the

Riau Province. Headquartered in Singapore, our location is one of our key assets given Singapores

reputation for multinational management due to its infrastructure, proven legal system and good

corporate governance environment. Our investment portfolio is a good mix between stable cash flow

in the utility and industrial park businesses, promising growth potential in the resort and property

development businesses in Bintan, and strong balance sheet with low gearing.



An investment holding companywith focus on regional growth opportunities




An investment holding company


Bintan Resorts


UtilitiesWe are a private provider of utilities in Batam and

Bintan, supplying electricity, telecommunications,

water and waste management services to our

industrial parks and Bintan Resorts. We have

invested approximately S$409 million to construct

our utilities infrastructure and resources for power

generation and distribution, and potable water

treatment facilities including a reservoir,

wastewater treatment facilities and landfills.

Industrial Parks We own and manage Batamindo Industrial Park in

Batam and Bintan Industrial Estate in Bintan, two

self-contained industrial parks of international

standards. These parks have a total net lettable

area of approximately 630,000 sqm. The

industrial parks owned by us are valued by Colliers

International at approximately S$442 million*.

Our proximity to Singapore providing access

to Singapores infrastructure and logistics,

air and sea port facilities have attracted

multinational investors.

Our Businesses at a Glance

Resort Operations We provide integrated support facilities and

services to the 4 resorts and 7 hotel properties in

Bintan Resorts, an integrated resort development

and international tourist destination, which spans

over 3,000 ha of land.

Property Development We own land and act as a master planner for

industrial park and resort development

opportunities. We own a total of about 18,200 ha

of land in northern and western Bintan, which

are valued at approximately S$541 million*.

Our land bank is earmarked for sale and for

resort, industrial, commercial and residential

development. Since 1990, we have sold four

major sites totalling over 1,200 ha to investors

for the development of Nirwana Garden Resort,

Laguna Bintan Resort, Ria Bintan Resort and

Bintan Lagoon Resort.

*As at 1 February, 20062-3

A Balanced Asset Portfolio

Our current investment portfolio provides a

balanced mix of stable cash flow in the utility and

industrial park businesses, promising profit and

growth capabilities in the resort and property

development businesses in Bintan, and a strong

balance sheet with low gearing.

Strong Management Team

Our strong management team has the relevant

experience and qualifications to manage the

different functions of our businesses.

A Unique Market Position as an Integrated

Master Planner

As the integrated master planner for industrial

parks and resorts totalling approximately

18,200 ha in size, and as a private provider of

utilities in Batam and Bintan, we place emphasis

on the quality of our developments and the

infrastructure and support services. We have

attracted the presence of internationally known

brands including Club Med and Banyan Tree.

Significant Economies of Scale and Barriers

to Entry

Through our large pool of tenants and investors,

we enjoy significant economies of scale to our

industrial parks business, which in turn allow us

to offer investors a competitive advantage. The

barriers to entry for industrial parks businesses

are high and our ability to provide a wide

range of comprehensive services may not be

easily replicated.

Batam and Bintan as Investment Destinations

We leverage on our strategic location in Batam

and Bintan by providing investors with ready

access to Singapore and Changi International

Airport, access to an abundant workforce at

all levels and labour cost advantage relative to

Singapore. We also market Bintan Resorts to

tourists as a twin resort holiday destination to

Singapore and Bintan, with its scenic beauty with

100km of shoreline.

Good Government Support

We benefit from close economic ties between

Indonesia and Singapore and from various

investment incentives and privileges to develop

Batam and Bintan, such as the Generalised System

of Preferences, Bonded Zone Plus status and

absence of foreign exchange controls in Indonesia.

Strong Financial Position

Our strong balance sheet with low gearing and

a stable cash flow enables us to explore new

business opportunities, strategic partnerships

and investments.
