StockWatch (Jakarta) - PT Unilever Indonesia Tbk (UNVR) is predicted to book sales of IDR18 trillion in 2009 with net profit of IDR3 trillion, Paramitra Alfa Sekuritas' market analyst Pardomuan Sihombing said.

Sihombing said the sales and net profit projections are based on the company's products which are mostly sold in the local market (80%) and only 20% in the export market.

He said global economic slowdown will have no significant impact on Unilever which is a market-oriented company. "Unilever sells consumers goods that are resistant to crisi, so I'm optimistic the company will be able to reach the targets," he said.

Unilever Indonesia booked consolidated net profit of IDR2.046 trillion (IDR268 per share) in the period of January-September 2008, climbing by 29.88% versus IDR1.575 trillion (IDR207 per share) in the same period of 2007, while net profit margin rose at 17.41% from 16.41%.

Customers will continue to buy Unilever's products so the company will enjoy further growth next year, he said. "Buying power is likely to decline because of the global economic crisis, but it will not affect the company's sales since the company has various products at affordable prices," he said.

Sihombing expects Unilever's shares to climb at IDR8,000 per share by the year end , which implies a potential increase of 4,37% versus Wednesday's (15/12) price of IDR7.650 per share.

Based on StockWatch data, UNVR has stepped up 12.5% year to date from IDR6,800 per share on January 2 to IDR7,650 per share on December 15. (konrad/bd)

Twelve Brokers Not Involved in Short Selling
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday, 24 December 2008 15:26:56
StockWatch (Jakarta) - The Capital Market and Financial Institution Supervisory Board (Bapepam LK)'s investigation team said there is no evidence that the 12 brokerage firms examined since October 13 are involved in short selling transactions.

The 12 brokers are PT JP Morgan Securities Indonesia, PT Merrill Lynch Indonesia, PT CLSA Indonesia, PT Credit Suisse Securities Indonesia, PT CIMB-GK Securities Indonesia, PT BNP Paribas Securities Indonesia, PT Kim Eng Securities, PT UOB Kay Hian Securities Indonesia, PT DBS Vickers Securities Indonesia, PT Deutsche Securities, PT UBS Securities Indonesia and PT Ciptadana Securities.

They have been examined for trading shares of PT Indosat Tbk (ISAT), PT United Tractors Tbk (UNTR), PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk (TLKM), PT International Nickel Indonesia Tbk (INCO), PT Bakrie Sumatera Plantations Tbk (UNSP), PT Adaro Energy Tbk (ADRO), PT Bumi Resources Tbk (BUMI), PT Indotambang Raya Megah Tbk (ITMG), PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk (BBRI), PT Tambang Batubara Bukit Asam Tbk (PTBA), PT Central Proteinaprima Tbk (CPRO), PT Perusahaan Gas Negara Tbk (PGAS), PT Astra Agro Lestari Tbk (AALI), PT Bakrie Telecom Tbk (BTEL), PT Energi Mega Persada Tbk (ENRG), PT Bakrieland Development Tbk (ELTY), PT Bakrie & Brothers Tbk (BNBR) and PT Astra International Tbk (ASII).

Bapepam's head of bureau for laws and legal assistances, Robinson Simbolon, said in a press release that Bapepam has found evidence about the entire transactions, but there is no proof of short selling though the market authority found administrative faults.

Simbolon said they have made administrative mistakes as they have proved to violate Rules V.D.3, V.D.6 and V.D.10, as they did not verify the customers' orders, opened accounts for margin trading without opening regular accounts, and did not implement the principle of "know your clients."

Due to such mistakes, Bapepam has imposed administrative sanctions in form of fines whose amounts vary with the number of rules they have violated. UOB Kay Hian Securities Indonesia which has violated two regulations, V.D3 and V.D.10, is fined IDR100 million and other 11 brokers are fined IDR50 million each. (dwi/bd)
