Jakarta, July 27, 2021 - PT Metrodata Electronics Tbk (“MTDL” or the Company), an Information and Communication Technology (“ICT”) issuer in the field of digital solutions and hardware and software distribution, managed to record a net profit of IDR242.8 billion in the First Semester of 2021 or an increase of 55.6% compared to the same period in the previous year. This achievement is the result of the growth of each of the Company’s business units, namely the Distribution business unit and the Solution & Consulting business unit.
Susanto Djaja as the President Director of MTDL said, “In the First Semester of 2021 we continued to record a better performance even though economic conditions have yet to return to full normal amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only net profit, MTDL also posted revenue in the First Semester of 2021 of IDR7.7 trillion, an increase of 23.5%. This growth factor is due to the increasing demand for various ICT products and solutions in order to support digitalization. Therefore, MTDL continues to add new quality ICT products, partners, and solutions.”
In the First Semester of 2021, the Distribution business unit performed well with a revenue growth of 24.7% and net profit of 84.2%. Although the supply of notebooks has not fully recovered due to the global shortage of raw chip materials, MTDL has managed to compensate by diversifying its products, such as with Chromebooks and smartphones. “In the First Semester of 2021, our smartphone sales reached IDR828 billion or a growth of 98%. We promote smartphones at economical prices and the latest Android application features which draws great demand from the public. On the other hand, the pandemic period has resulted in many people spending time at home which has the opportunity to fill their entertainment needs by playing games. This also increases the demand for gaming products by more than 66%,” said Randy Kartadinata as Director of MTDL.
The Solution and Consulting business unit in the First Semester of 2021 also achieved growth of revenue by 16.9% and net profit of 37.2%. This is driven by the ever-increasing trend of digitization which has become a necessity for various corporate sectors. The largest contribution came from the financial sector, which contributed 33% to the Solution and Consulting business unit revenue. Going forward, the Solution and Consulting business unit will continue to develop its competence in supporting the transformation of banking in Indonesia to become a Digital Bank. Meanwhile, the eight-pillar solution, which is a mainstay in the digital transformation process for MTDL customers, also achieved a growth of 19.7%.
For information, recently the Distribution business unit through its subsidiary, PT Synnex Metrodata Indonesia (“SMI”) has launched a 360° virtual mall platform, known as Nexworld° as a hub for various global technology brands. The Solution and Consulting business unit, through its subsidiary PT Mitra Integrasi Informatika (“MII”), also continues to expand its digital solutions. One of them is to support the BI FAST program by providing a digital application for the BI FAST MII Converter (KOMI) and ready to offer the Infrastructure Software Super App platform to accelerate the transformation to a Digital Bank.
MTDL’s subsidiary, MII not only focuses on business, but also notices education in Indonesia, especially in the field of ICT. Through Metrodata Academy, MII has become a partner of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (‘Kemendikbudristek’) for the Merdeka Campus (‘Kampus Merdeka’) program. In addition, MII has partnered with more than 60 universities in Indonesia. It is expected that the Metrodata Academy program can produce qualified ICT experts.
“MTDL is optimistic that it can continue to improve its performance in line with the acceleration of digital transformation and the Covid-19 vaccination program. We have also carried out Gotong Royong vaccinations for MTDL employees. It is expected that the pandemic conditions will recover soon and the economy will also improve soon,” conclude Susanto.
