Heavy equipment distributor PT Intraco Penta Tbk, that was founded by Halex Halim, is scouting a coal acquisition with the valuation above US$200 million.
Intraco Penta President Director Petrus Halim said the target coal company may have valuation higher than Intraco's market capitalization which is now about US$200 million.
"We estimate the target company has valuation more than Intraco's market cap," he said as quoted by Bisnis Indonesia today.
According to him, at the end of this year, Intraco Penta expects to complete the take over, enabling the company to penetrate coal miner business.
"We are prudent on this take over as the size is higher than Intraco Penta. Many companies are suffering loses in the coal mining business but they don't reveal it," said Petrus.
Intraco Penta was founded in 1970 and listed at Indonesia Stock Exchange in 1993. Intraco Penta has several subsidiaries such as PT Intan Baruprana Finance, PT Clumbia Chrome Indonesia, PT Terrafactor Indonesia, and PT Karya Lestari Sumberalam. Intraco is distributor for heavy equipment brands such as Volvo, Bobcat, Mahindra Tractors, and Sinotruk.
