PT Antam Removes Arie Prabowo from the Position of President Director, Agus Surya Bakti Becomes President Commissioner

IMPERIUMDAILY.COM – JAKARTA – Changes in commissioners and directors have occurred at PT Aneka Tambang Tbk (ANTM) since Thursday (19/12). There is no longer the name of Fachrul Razi who previously served as President Commissioner and was replaced by Lieutenant General of the TNI (Retired) Agus Surya Bakti.

In addition, the owner of a crucial position, Managing Director Arie Prabowo Ariotedjo was also removed after the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders (EGMS) with the agenda of Changing the composition of the Company’s Management.

In this EGMS, the replacement of the President Commissioner was due to Fachrul Razi being appointed Minister of Religion at the Advanced Indonesian Cabinet for the 2019-2024 period. While his successor is the husband of artist Bella Saphira. Meanwhile, Arie Prabowo was replaced by Dana Amin to assume the position of President Director.

The SOE Ministry opened the voice regarding the reshuffle of the Directors of PT Antam, especially Arie Prabowo Ariotedjo from the position of President Director of Antam.

Ministry of SOE Ministry spokesman Arya Sinulingga said, the reason for SOE Minister, Erick Thohir, as Antam’s highest shareholder, took Arie off because many projects had not been completed. One of them is the Nickel Pig Iron (NPI) Blast Furnace factory in East Halmahera. The project should have been operational but still not working. The reason is because the power plant for the plant has not yet been built.

“Projects have been abandoned. For example ferronickel in Haltim. The factory has been completed but the electricity is still zero. So the factory is not working. So we are looking for directors who have fast execution,” he said at the SOE Ministry, Jakarta, Thursday (12/19)

In the project, Antam partnered with Ocean Energy Nickel International Pte Ltd (OENI). There, Antam became the majority shareholder. The project is actually targeted to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2020 but the Ministry of SOEs requests that the project be completed more quickly.

In addition to the NPI project, the Ministry of SOEs sees the construction of the Smelter Grade Alumina (SGA) that Antam is working with PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminum (Persero) too slowly. The project is located in Mempawah, West Kalimantan, costing USD 850 million with a target for completion this year.

“The Alumina Smelter Grade project has not been completed, two years have not been running,” he said.

Arya hopes that the reshuffle of the directors is expected to provide fresh air for abandoned projects. Especially the change of CEO from Arie Prabowo to Dana Amin, can be an executor who is fit to work on the Antam project.

“Because there is a change in the business model and we choose Dana Amin, for example a year to be an advisor at Inalum. So we are looking for directors who can execute quickly,” he said.

Meanwhile, in the position of President Commissioner, the EGMS decided to appoint Agus Surya Bakti. The man who was born in Langkat 58 years ago was a retired senior army officer who last served as Sesmenko Polhukam. Agus graduated from the Military Academy in 1984 with experience in the Infantry (Kopassus) field.

As Antam’s President Commissioner, Agus has the duty to supervise the policies in the Company, provide advice to the Board of Directors including supervision of the implementation of the Company’s Long-Term Plan, as well as the Company’s Work Plan and Budget for the interests of the Company in accordance with the Company’s objectives.
