Integrated coal mining PT ABM Investama, affiliated company of Tiara Marga Trakindo Group, aims to dispose 20% stake during an initial public offering (IPO) scheduled in October, despite the global equity market turmoil, triggered by the debt rating downgrade of the US by Standard & Poor's on last Friday.

No spoke person at ABM Investama available for comment. However, IDX Director Eddy Sugito confirmed that ABM presented IPO plan to IDX last week.
