Other Portfolios Company

INDY not just has portfolios in coal and the services, but in other mining like gold and digital services. In the 4.0 era, all of the companies should apply digital technology expertise with their operations. Why? If a company uses digital technology to the operations, it will expedite business running and flatten the cost (high efficiency). INDY has a gold mining through Nusantara Resources Limited, an indirect subsidiary through Indika Mineral Investindo, that operates the gold project in 14.390 hectares in Sulawesi. The project is namely by Awak Mas gold project. Awak Mas gold project has potential resources of 2.0 million ounces and potential reserves of 1.1 million ounces.

IDT has two subsidiaries, there are PT Zebra Cross Teknologi and Xapiens Teknologi Indonesia. All of the companies provide digital services, cyber security services, system integration & business solution, and other services to Indika Energy. As for the services, Indika Energy able to become a company with integrated digital services. Likely said before, digitalized runs a vital role in the company. Indika Energy realizes it, so they built their own digital company that provides digital services for them. It’s successful! INDY has become one of the integrated energy company in Indonesia. Any such another company like Adaro Energy, but I think INDY still the best among Adaro. I don’t know whosoever Adaro has a digital company or not, but so far I never heard it.


This article, not a recommendation for you to buy INDY. I only share the competitive advantage of Indika Energy. Investors should know the business, not the price. So, I advise you to know how the business process, the sectors, the competitive advantage, and others. Know the company is the fundamental of investment.
